Tassilo Schäfer, this Frankfurt born techno talent, will soon be a main part of todays electronic music scene . After moving to Munich from the small town Bellersheim at the young age of 14, he started indulging into the bass-ripping sounds of techno and has ever since invested every moment of his spare time in this earthshaking sound. His answer to where he sees himself in the future simply ais: “I don’t want to become a star DJ or a “Popstar”, but purely want to combine my energy, thoughts and emotions with sound. It’s all about the music, nothing else matters!”
Tassilo started dJing in 2012 when he acquired 2 Stanton turntables and a few vinyls from labels such as Drumcode, Stockholm LTD and Soma. Up until the end of 2012 he frequently played at bars in Freising and very quickly grasped the concept of banning the audience with his impeccable sound.
January 2013 was a big month for Tassilo as he was asked to play in one of Munichs most renowned techno clubs: Bullitt. That was when T. noticed his own talent, as he immediately was asked to play at this club more often and to become a resident DJ.
In December 2013 T. also founded his own techno label: LOFT089 Records. This label’s sound is not easy to describe, but intense melodies and air-vibrating bass lines are just a taste of what his label’s music represents.
Most important was a question Tassilo was asked in a recent interview:
How did techno find you?
- “I have always had a passion for music, everyone in my family plays an instrument and I have, of course, been listening to music all my life, but techno music just grabbed me by the arm and sent me to musical heaven. The rhythmic danceable drums, whipping bass lines and the melancholically sounds made me feel music like I never did before. This music just gives me what I need in life. I have found my transcendence and my purpose in these sounds.“ So keep your eyes open for this young talent from Munich!
