Britta Unders Bio
The year is 2016. Britta Arnold, meets unders behind the DJ booth at her GRRR Mit BRRR party at her home base Katerblau. It was here that two mirrors met, two ambitions lock into place and two styles merged to create what is now known as Britta Unders.
Together, they have found a new level of creative expression; whether it is playing music to weekend ravers, shaping emotions into sound in the studio, casually planning their futures involving mobile studios, remixes and their own imprint. Their collaboration has become a creative wonderland.
These musical argonauts were in no way insufficient upon discovering each other. Britta co-founded and managed the Bar 25 label, remains a resident DJ in the Katerblau offspring and has travelled all over the world in her musical spaceship. Unders has scoured the globe for the last twenty years garnering inspiration and experience in the electronic industry as both DJ, promoter and producer, bringing into existence such musical life forms as ‘Syria’.
Combined, that flow of life is unstoppable. Their productions and DJ sets are spacious, trippy, techy and transportive with a minion-like absurdity woven in.
Now, they seek to grow this energy source they’ve found in each other; spreading that infectious joy. Within a year, the two invited their secret weapon Noraj Cue to start their own imprint Happy Camper Records. They are committed, along with their growing family, that this work brings to humanity a glimpse of a brighter future. Simply put, this is the sound of an extremely bright future.
An international shapeshifting duo, KMLN (pronounced “Kameleon”) unites Italian producer/multi-instrumentalist Christopher Tooker and Canadian dj/producer Shawna Hofmann. May it be a prime time or sunrise set, they adapt and deliver sets that blow your mind and bring your dance skills to the next level. Live instruments, syncopation, organic meets modern, future meets past. As interplanetary travelers and cultural explorers, the KMLN ship bends time through sound, blending elements of deep tribal house and minimal techno, moving through tempos with layers and layers of mind altering colors. With the support of artists such as Acid Pauli, Damian Lazarus, Mira, Nico Stojan, Bedouin, DOP, Nicola Cruz and more, KMLN keeps surprising and raising the bar hitting #8 top 100 releases, #4 deep house, #4 electronica /downtempo on Beatport. With write ups and features on publications such as XLR8R, Dancing Astronaut, Ear Milk, Resident Advisor, Ibiza Voice and making it into Beatport’s "must hear deep house”, their music is found on labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Sol Selectas, Touch of Class and Endless. Their touring has brought them to over 20 countries worldwide.
