Mathias Schaffhäuser

Mathias Schaffhäuser’s around in the techno, house and minimal scene since 1994. This year he celebrates the 20th jubilee of his label WARE with several new releases and remixes and a new artist album at the end of the year. And 2018 will see some more new music of the man from Cologne: EPs on Tiefschwarz’ Souvenir Music and british label legend Third Ear, an album of his project Fanatico on Brooklyn based Hallucienda Records and several remixes.

Other releases of Mathias appeared on Mo’s Ferry Productions, Compost, Tic Tac Toe Rec., Force Inc., Multicolor, BluFin Records, Snork, Adjunct, Definitive Records (where he released his very first EP), WIR Recordings, Blaou Sounds and many others. In 1997 he started WARE which released 97 EPs until now (as of March 2018). 2001 saw his massive club hit “Hey Little Girl”, 2002 “Musik ohne Bass” entered the clubs. In April 2005 he released his album “Coincidance”, its title track was successfully remixed by Trentemøller.

On his album „Unequal Equality“ (2009), Mathias collaborated with Lucy, Alex Smoke, Xhin,, Benjamin Brunn and many others, and he produced remixes for Steve Bug („LoverBoy“), Luomo („Tessio“), Faust, [A]pendics.Shuffle, Goldfrapp, Pan-Pot, Indoor Life, Northern Lite, Dapayk & Padberg – just to name a few.

Schaffhäuser’s motto at the turntables is: Purism sucks! The quality of the music is what’s important, not sheer functionality and trendyness. That is: at times his sets can be rather varied from his very own style, dirty + dark house, and thumping techno. And more and more often Schaffhäuser uses his microphone and croons some evergreens to his records which is a very special live experience.
