15 days to go for the FACT Off Week Barcelona 2017
Only 15 days left until the beginning of FACT Off Week Barcelona 2017, the most important week of electronic music in the city! On the first day, June 14th, the Berliner label Second State will be mixing in our Fact Club all night long. Pan-Pot, Stephan Hinz, Nic Fanciulli (special guest), Amelie Lens, BEC, Julia Govor, Roman Lindau and The Reason Y are the renowned artists that will be performing during this awesome session.
Today we speak volumes about Pan-Pot:
The German duo formed by Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix had only one thing in their minds right from the start: “it can be the similarities between two people that draw us together, but it’s the differences between us that create something special”.
Taking into account these words all along their career, they both met when they were studying at the well-regarded SAE in Berlin and started a musical project, as they were the only ones of their degree that had an eye fixed on techno sound. They started experimenting with a minimal style, using shadowy and ominous textures: an original mix that has become synonymous with their own name. The defining moment for Pan-Pot arrived in 2007, with the release of their debut album Pan-O-Rama (Mobilee, 2007), which offered a unique and uncompromised perspective of techno. During this decade, Pan-Pot has followed an unstoppable musical career; developing a dominate presence in the electronic dance scene. Their own idiosyncratic language as a result of “the differences between us” is present in great albums such as The Other (Second State, 2015) or in the intense 12-inch Grey Matter (Second State, 2014). Nowadays, Pan-Pot is heading to a promising future with the launch of their own imprint, Second State.
… and remember, dancers, Pan-Pot is just the beginning of this season. Keep in mind that we will be hosting eight more events in different places during the week, from June 14th to June 17th!
