Melodic: Alex Niggemann

  • We are very happy to reveal our February 2015 international guest at Melodic, Alex Niggemann. His productions over the last few years have been phenomenal and have earned him a well deserved place on Steve Bug's Poker Flat Recordings. Most notably his track incredible 'Materium' track which was one of the biggest tracks on RA this year. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Persistent, stubborn, straight ahead! - Alex Niggemann can be best described as idiosyncratic, impulsive and self-critical. What might be construed as negative for some people, are attributes that have paved the way to a remarkable career for this DJ and producer. His strings of releases and remixes on labels including Poker Flat, Compost Black Label, Get Physical, Tsuba, Supernature, 8bit, his own imprints AEON and Soulfooled reaches back to 2005, showcasing the stylistic variety of the 1984 born producer who has deftly mastered styles from vocal-heavy house to darker techno for moving masses. And yet, terms like "Chicago", "Detroit", "mids 90s" and "Tech-House" are still on point when it comes to describing Mr. Niggemann's timeless, high quality output as these continue to be highly influential in shaping his identifiable sound. A worldwide tour with 40 shows in 3 months celebrated Alex Niggemann's debut album "Paranoid Funk" which was released on Poker Flat in Summer 2012, and was then followed by a string of remixes for tracks taken off his first ever LP. In 2013 his new Poker Flat 12" "Tangram" caused global massive dancefloor movement, merely providing a glimpse into the success he will command in 2014 - the white hot ‘Materium’ (Poker Flat) is one of the most played and charted tracks of the summer, still sitting cosy at Number 3 in RA’s Top 50 weeks after release. With the coming months bringing an EP on Sasha’s prolific Last Night On Earth, a release on the iconic Watergate Records, remixes on Compost and own label Soulfooled, and an EP dropping on his AEON imprint it’s clear that the future is bright for the young and talented Alex Niggemann, as he continues to forge his own path, rising through the ranks of producers due to his inspiring passion, focus and talent.
