Born in Frankfurt and now based in Berlin, producer and label owner Yapacc sways the electronic music scene and dance floors with his live sound since the early 90s.
His interest in music has been aroused by experiences with analogue electronics at a very young age already.
He wrote and released under the techno duo pseudonym «Electrasmus» his first EP Maelstrom Recordings in 1997. Followed by a track at the Frankfurt's art label Poet Club Recording for the compilation «Inside 2» alongside Brian Eno, Shantel and Apex.
Henceforth there emerged more than 250 releases by over 80 labels such as Neuton, Perlon, Wir/Treibstoff, Brise and Lucidflow and remixes for Ricardo Villalobos, Italoboyz, Pascal Feos, 2-Raumwohnung and many more.
In 2003, Yapacc and James Dean Brown founded the project «Narcotic Syntax», which is an important part of the Perlon history. In the same year they released their first EP «Ping Pong Voodoo» on Perlon, recorded plenty more tracks on various compilations and teamed up on stage for live analogue performances until today.
Yapacc impresses many international clubs and their visitors with his intensive and organic live performances. Such as Panorama Bar , Fabric London, Watergate, Loveparade Berlin, Time Warp, Sonar Festival,Bar 25/Kater Holzig, Tresor, Harry Klein, Fuse Club, Studio 80, U60311, Airport, Bar Americas, Mix Club, Bootleg, The Bunker (nyc), Harvest Festival (ca), Fusion Festival, Closer Club, Propaganda Club and a good deal more.
Beside his prolific musical activities, he also worked together with «MFB — Manfred Fricke Berlin», who created analog synthesizers and drum machines.
Today, he is running his own synthesizer company called „IO INSTRUMENTS“ (together with Frank Kumm) and „RIDES IN THE STORM", both are presented at the Superbooth. At his performance, expect a straight live set with modular and sampling technologies plus an electric guitar.
