A dancefloor dissident challenging German stereotypes, Harry Axt is a Berlin producer who trades in engrossing dark techno soundscapes. Axt entered the club fray with a succession of EPs on Jan Driver's Grand Petrol Recordings nearly a decade ago. Over the ensuing years, Axt’s stature has grown as he’s released on renowned labels such as Leftroom, Snork Enterprises, and AFU Limited. Dropping a split 12" with Siriusmo on the aforementioned Grand Petrol, Axt has also remixed luminaries like Christopher Just, Broombeck, The Horrorist and Miro Pajic, while his debut full-length album Planet Axt arrived in 2009 on Berlin stable Rompecabeza.
Axt’s bourgeoning discography piqued the interest of many of the foremost figures in electronic music. Harry Axt cuts have been heavily supported by luminaries such as Miss Kittin while his track ‘Deliberately Selected’ featured on Hot Chip’s Bugged Out compilation. Dirty Bird’s Worthy also stepped up to remix Axt’s cut ‘Pulpfunkion' for the Leftroom label. After something of a sojourn following his 2012 EP reworking classic rave anthems by Yves de Ruyter and Cherry Moon Trax on fabled Belgian techno bastion Bonzai Records, Harry Axt is now primed to re-enter the fray with the release of a new EP 'Two and a Half Grams’ on Berlin imprint Arms & Legs in August 2014.
This isn’t monotonous militant techno but rather techno bursting with genuine charisma. Deceptively subtle and immediately engaging, Harry Axt’s distinctive productions are for dancers, shufflers, dreamers, ravers and bedroom bangers alike.
