Few people bring a truly original sound to house music. It’s all very well making some nice grooves and working the dancefloor but when it comes to longevity and leaving an indelible mark on the genre, you’ve got to bring something new to the table. At a young age, Hamburg-based producer, STIMMING did just that and has continued doing so for the past 15 years. He started releasing on the Diynamic label by his early twenties and his breakthrough hit, Una Pena, made the electronic world sit up and take notice. 2009 saw him launch his immaculate debut album Reflections to great acclaim, and subsequent releases including Liquorice, Stimming and Exodus fortified his reputation as one of the most exciting new producers of his generation. Mixing hand-made textures, field recordings and the latest gear in his compositions, Stimming has earned his stripes as a dance-floor veteran, and technical maestro frequently reviewing electronic music equipment for respected platforms worldwide. Along the years, he also released various remixes for the likes of Apparat, Claude VonStroke, Nina Kraviz, Stephan Bodzin and Kiasmos amongst others. In 2016, Stimming released the radically conceptual LP Alpe Lusia. Recorded in a secluded cabin up in the Dolomites, Alpe Lusia marked a turning point for the producer who changed gears from making dance music to a deeper and much more mature sound world. Stimming’s anticipated sixth album, Ludwig continues on the path he started 5 years before with the producer riding the music of functionality to uncover what lies beyond. There’s a sense that Stimming is learning, or re-learning, a thing or two from sound in the upcoming album, he’s looking for the essence, making the album original – of the origins – in a literal sense. Ludwig, as well as every other of Stimming’s heartfelt releases are united by a continuous sense of exploration of interesting and progressive territories with his trademark sense of texture, emotion and discovery.
