Say Yes, a fresh event collective was created last August brought the grandmaster Moritz von Oswald, young talents such as Francesco Tristano, Drumcode’s Marco Faraone, Soma’s Deepbass, also Tresor’s Reka for celebrating their 25 years. This upcoming one is your April Fool giftl, German procurer, Barnt. He’s ranked on RA TOP 100 and played from Montreux Jazz Festival to Mutek México, from Berghain to Burning Man, did Boiler Room more than once. Say Yes is teaming up with 4X4X4X4 from Arkham for his first China debut. He’s joined by Max Shen, Radio Revolution, Say Yes Residents Mislopop and Deep 19.
When Barnt’s classmates were into Grunge, he was exploring Techno, when the same classmates discovered Techno, he was already taking a closer look into Hip Hop (battling in the nationwide DMC DJ championships), when everyone went to Berlin to celebrate Minimal, he was being on a trip back in time to inhale early German electronic and rock music – attracted by the main oppositional poles of this era: accuracy and free rein. At that time he was already an established part of the music scene in Cologne, the city where he finished first his Biology and subsequently his Art studies (carving out the two poles „accuracy“ and „free rein“ in his development again). In the fruitful atmosphere of Cologne he still lives and from here he further evolves his idiosyncratic style, which already brought him from Robert Johnson to Trouw, from Montreux Jazz Festival to Mutek México, from Berghain to Burning Man.
Mainly these biographical key points and his (now over two decades spanning) DJ experience are the base for his formula of pathos, calculated dilettantism and dance floor functionality that characterize all his productions. Take the infamous Geffen or his earlier work with Cologne Tape on the EP Render, the first release on his own conceptual imprint Magazine, that he co-runs with Crato and Jens-Uwe Beyer. “Render” and his debut solo EP What Is A Number, That A Man May Know It? became instant underground hits in 2010 and the records are precious collector’s items ever since. Look at those big names who work with him together: Loud Places－ Jaime XX/ ROMY (Barnt Remix), Cherry Red- Barnt (Tale Of Us & Recondite Remix), Voigt Kampff Test－ Michael Mayer (Barnt Remix) ,Magnetic－ Daniel Avery (Barnt Remix)， Between Shadow And Lights－ Kuniyuki Takahashi, Anne Clark (Barnt Remix)。C.P.I. – Proceso (Barnt Remix) No need to say more, just come.
Say Yes在过去不到一年的时间里非常荣幸地邀请到了Dub Techno之父Moritz von Oswald，以及Francesco Tristano这样把新古典和电子乐美妙融合，钢琴和techno玩转游刃有余的青年才俊。春节过后持续发力邀请到来自Soma的Deep/ Ambient/ Dub Techno制作人Deepbass，并组织了意大利Techno才子Marco Faraone的亚洲巡演。时值柏林传奇Techno夜店Tresor庆祝25周年纪念之际, 更是邀请了红牛音乐学院优秀毕业生, Tresor女驻场Reka。演出马不停蹄，惊喜接踵而至，四月的惊喜又是谁呢？Say Yes选择在第一天本着”愚人节我们不愚人”的真诚态度为大家带来RA前100DJ, 德国电音鬼才Barnt。同台本土艺人除了Say Yes常驻将军Misloop和Deep19, 更有Max Shen和韩国小哥Radio Revolution加盟助阵。
德国科隆这座城市除了贡献了众所周知的电音厂牌Kompakt及其团队还有一个重大贡献就是Barnt。纵观他的发展路线，你会深刻意识到这是一位从来就不走寻找路的电音鬼才＋怪咖。先人一步开始挖掘Techno音乐的他, 在众人开始研究Techno之后，却把目光转向了DMC搓盘大赛。而当所有人都涌向柏林追寻Minimal的时候，他却又反其道而行之回归到早期的德式电子和摇滚乐。作为音乐人，超过二十年的职业生涯经历,以及他的身影遍布一些列重要的音乐节和各大club: Bolier Room, Bruning Man 火人音乐节, Berghain, Robert Johnson, Trouw, Montreux Jazz Festival, Mutek México, 这次饿传奇的舞台就经历都成为他能够创作出如此动人作品，并以此成功掌控舞池的坚实基础。作为制作人，作品数量不多，但质量却充满保障,首首精品。比如早期广受赞誉的作品Geffen, 几乎是一首无处不在的作品，包括后来的 What Is A Number, That A Man May Know It也成为重点收藏对象。再看看他的混音作品所合作的艺人，不用多说也就大家也知道实力深浅了。Loud Places－ Jaime XX/ ROMY (Barnt Remix), Cherry Red- Barnt (Tale Of Us & Recondite Remix), C.P.I. – Proceso (Barnt Remix) Voigt Kampff Test－ Michael Mayer (Barnt Remix) ,Magnetic－ Daniel Avery (Barnt Remix), Between Shadow And Lights－ Kuniyuki Takahashi, Anne Clark (Barnt Remix).所以4月1日说不来的童鞋门，我知道你们一定都会在舞池中央集合的，到时见！
