Check Out a Genre-Hopping Mix from Prosumer
- Words: Brad Stabler
Berlin mainstay and former Panorama Bar resident Prosumer (a.k.a. Achim Brandenburg) has made a name for himself as one of Europe's top house and techno DJs, but his latest mix shows off an entirely different side of his music taste. In addition to doing a spotlight set at Croatia's Electric Elephant this July, the producer will be hosting a boat party for the festival on July 15, utilizing a strict "anything but house and techno" policy. Judging by the cuts on his new podcast for FACT, Prosumer is serious. The towering, 70-minute effort begins with a symphonic interlude, poetic monologue, and waves lapping against an unknown shore, and then dives into a concoction built on reggae, disco, pop, and other curiosities the DJ/producer can cram into his set's runtime. There are virtually none of the usual dancefloor sounds Prosumer established himself with anywhere to be found, but the summery offering, aptly called Under a Palm Tree, can be streamed and downloaded here.
