Bubblin': Iron Curtis

Who: Iron Curtis
Where: Berlin, Germany

Like many house acts, Johannes Paluka's primary influences can be traced back to classic sounds of Detroit, but as Iron Curtis, this German producer puts his own stamp on the genre, stirring a real sense of soul into his subtle—but never minimal—brew of deep house and techno. Maybe it's because he grew up listening to his father's Motown records, although Paluka claims that his tastes have always been rather eclectic. Over the past year he's released a series of EPs on a number of labels, including high-quality outposts Mirau, Morris Audio, and Mule Electronic.
