As one of Europeâ€™s most in-demand mixing engineers Hannes Bieger has built an untouchable reputation, with an exhaustive client list that includes some of the biggest names in contemporary house and techno. In 2017 Hannes decided to step back into the foreground and start making his own music again, emboldened by years of experience, a renewed zest for production and a lifelong romance with electronic music. Hannes Bieger is a mixing and production powerhouse with a live show that will blow your socks off.
After 11 years ago in the world of mixing and mastering, Hannes was at the top of his game, his magic touch making him a popular choice for a variety of famous producers. However, since 2017 he has been focusing his energy on producing his own music and building an unforgettable live show. Hannes returned to making his own music with his debut EP on Poker Flat in 2017 inspired by the purchase of a coveted Moog modular synth in 2016, which reinvigorated his passion for production.
With an endless stream of case studies passing through his operating table, Hannes came to learn exactly what works when it comes to premier dance floor material. Learning key lessons from some of the most talented producers in the game, he has accumulated a huge store of knowledge and skills resulting in a deeply intuitive, â€˜less is moreâ€™ approach. Placing greatimportance on this reductive method for his own productions, the results have been impressive,with several key labels signing his music for release. They include his â€˜firstâ€™ release on SteveBugâ€™s Poker Flat, the â€˜Stratoâ€™ EP, which picked up positive feedback across the board, with an â€˜8 out of 10â€™ review in Mixmag. This was followed by â€˜La Selvaâ€™ on Audioflyâ€™s Flying Circus, an EPwhich the duo continue to support up until today, plus a follow up to â€˜Stratoâ€™ on Poker Flat called â€˜Tephraâ€™ in June 2018.
Hannes has also remixed Monkey Safari for Hommage Records, dropped a beautiful ambientcomposition called â€˜Birth Of An Islandâ€™ on Aeon and has an exclusive track, â€˜Mauna Loaâ€™,featured on Bedrockâ€™s huge â€˜XXâ€™ compilation celebrating the influential labelâ€™s 20th anniversary.
Parallel to his production exploits, Hannes has been investing his time and energy into creating his own live show. Over the years he has poured his earnings into collecting a mouthwatering selection of synths. Forming a symbiotic relationship with these machines means the production process always takes place outside the box, with a spirited, physical approach to making music. This technique allows Hannes to have fun while making music, to embrace the physicality of his sounds and immerse himself in the production process, resulting in music that comes straight from his heart and soul.
