Falko Brocksieper runs the labels Sub Static and Karloff Rekordings, along with MIA. First started as a platform for own & a few friends’ productions, Sub Static soon gained a solid position within Cologne’s Kompakt distribution, and developed to be a wellknown address for driving, minimal techno, with international artists. When the reliable dancefloor compatibility of the label established itself more and more, there was the decision to found a second label, Karloff Rekordings, in order to provide an own seperate playground for more experimental and absurd techno approaches.
With now over 70 releases by artists like Shonky, John Spring, René Breitbarth, Pan/Tone, Kooky Scientist, Mathew Jonson and of course Mia and Falko themselves, Sub Static is a permanent feature in record cases worldwide, and also Karloff has rallied its own devoted fan community around itself. Today both labels are distributed by Word And Sound, Hamburg.
After Falko Brocksieper had made the first sequencer experiences on an Amiga 500 in his younger days, he decided in 1999, during his studies at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, to focus on music production again, after some activities in design, video art and installation. Falko Brocksieper’s first record was released on Sub Static in 2001, followed by further 12″es on the own label, as well as on Treibstoff, Tuningspork, Resopal, Dumb Unit and Tongut. In 2003 followed his debut album “Hoax Deluxe”, which manifested his style between hypnotic minimalism and buzzing, organic analog funk. Since then Brocksieper is also in heavy demand as a remixer, thus he supplied interpretations for Akufen, Basteroid, Gabriel Ananda, Dirt Crew, Sid LeRock, Dapayk & Padberg and many more.
In 2004 Falko Brocksieper left his longstanding homebase Cologne, to refuel with new energy and inspiration in Berlin – a new run of much-adored EP’s and remixes ensued, and finally in 2008 his long-awaited second album “Heavy Day”.
As a DJ Falko Brocksieper is active since 1993, and he always encounters the dancefloors with blind understanding for the right record at the right time, and a sensitive intuition for that extraordinary moment – whatever it takes, be it timelessly good techno from the big archives, the surprisingly used classic, or simply some irresistible hits of the day. Along with the release of “Heavy Day”, Brocksieper’s second album, he’ll be finally available as a live-act for the first time.
