Sammy Dee (Perlon, Berlin) plus Pretty Simple residents and guests
Pretty Simple presents Sammy Dee (Perlon; Berlin); Saturday 13th December
With an electronic music career spanning nearly two decades, Sammy Dee has built a reputation for himself as an innovator of eclectic, off kilter sounds. Sammy began to DJ in the late eighties, and hosted residencies at Tresor and Ostgut in his hometown of Berlin. Sammy's unique blend of stripped down house and techno sets have always proved to be part of the foundation of long running ‘..get perlonized’ at Panorama Bar, Berlin. Aside from his impeccable DJ sets, Sammy Dee is also well known for his successful co-productions. In 1997, having already worked with the likes of Heiko Laux, Sammy's ears were well tuned when he met Zip at Peak Club in Offenbach and formed Pantytec. The whimsical power collaboration between Sammy and Zip, brought the first release of highly acclaimed ep, "Into the Duster," which pushed the two innovators into the then avant-garde minimal spotlight. The 2003 release of the distinguished full-length album "Pony Slaystation" solidified the duo's reputation as one of Perlon's flagship projects. Shortly after Pantytec was formed, Sammy got together with good friend Guido Schneider in 1999 for some studio time. They produced several tracks and in 2005 the hit "Styleways," popped onto the charts. The next year formed another imaginative co-production with new Berlin import Bruno Pronsato. The sound of Half Hawaii was introduced to the public with the early 2007 release of "Into You/Out of You" on Perlon.
