As a now respected veteran of Germany’s techno scene, Emerson struck a chord with multilayered techno; enriched in quality and indicative of his synthetic electronic style. Founder of the esteemed Kiddaz.fm & Micro.fon imprints, he has opened the door and brought driving techno from its barren lands to a new territory built upon groove and bounce.
With releases on CLR, Nonlinear Systems, Desolat and AnaylticTrail Emerson has moved through the last decade unearthing a fledging reputation as a turn-to-producer for those who love a gutfull of groove despite how driving and hard faced the music may be.
As a young DJ and producer Emerson started out in South Germany, tinkering through various clubs before getting a break at Munich’s legendary second Utraschall Club, that led to a nationwide tour with the respected Tanith & Timing Recordings Crew. Subsequently, opportunities arose with several major clubs in Germany, before Emerson decided to take his sound abroad to the USA, South America, Asia, Ibiza and Eastern Europe amongst others. DJ Emerson is a prolific producer and much loved DJ both in his native Germany and across the globe. The positive response to his work inspired Emerson to start kiddaz.fm in 2000, a label which has clocked up over 80 releases, selling more than 100,000 vinyls in the process.
His underground cuts such as Anonymous and Audiopot as still manage to twist handfuls of percussion and melody around a more industrial tech house backbone etching his name into the collective consciousness of worldwide techno followers. Emerson is without doubt part of a pedigree of underground artists vastly aware of a changing German music scene that sees him deliver his gritty beats and analogue architecture to dancefloors with ease. For 2016 he launched the Label and Agency District4 together with his buddy Holger Nielson.
