Daniel Steinberg aka Harry Axt has always shied away from press attention, instead preferring to craft his music shrouded from ego and hype. His productions are in favour with the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Claude Vonstroke and Richie Hawtin and he is very much an unsung hero of the scene.As Berlins underground throbbed with minimal beats and stripped down house, Steinberg seemed to reach into the concreted shadows and caverns and emerge with something shimmering with real heart and feeling. Dicing Brazilian samples with killer beats and laying on the glitch to heavy effectA veritable chameleon of Berlins musical landscape since he first started producing his colourful vision of house and techno back in 1993, a time when Berlins sound was stripped back and very distinctive, Steinberg was already thriving outside this box, experimenting with exotic world samples and having fun fusing elements together to make a cohesive whole that was always greater than the sum of its parts.And again he leaves no doubt that he can rock the house with his distinctive style whatsorever ! The title is to be taken as an ironic statement as it is hard to categorise his outputand then again, who needs categories anyways.
