The variety of music by Johannes Beck ranges from ”fine electronic tunes” (Groove), to ”dub Techno atmosphere” (Wire) culminating in ”intricate swinging tracks” (De:Bug). Whether it be daydreaming and finespun piano sequences or pushing, grooving tracks, Johannes Beck produces for the concert hall as well as for the club.
You will be sure to notice the insightful aesthetics of this Berlin producer while he explores the many facets of electronic music during his performances.
Johannes’ DJ career began during the late 1990s when the Berlin music and club scene truly began to take off. He quickly internalized the sense of how to create magic moments with music. As a live act, DJ and coordinator of parties and club events (about blank, Maria am Ufer, NBI) he contributed to some unforgettable nights in Berlin club history.
Since 2003 Beck has been playing his music in live sets in order to perform them in a more intense way. In 2005 his first album ”Mistake” was released. This was followed by many EPs, compilation contributions and remixes, e.g. on Kann Records, Mutual Musik and Watergate Records. In addition, Kann Records released his second album "Beyond Pleasure and Pain" in 2014.
As part of his album and EP tours he has played live in cities such as Seoul, Tel Aviv, Barcelona, Berlin, Cologne and Hamburg. This not being enough, he then started in his early thirties to compose film scores and music for contemporary dance.
Johannes Beck releases’ are available on the Leipzig House label Kann Records as well as on Mutual Musik, a label founded and managed by himself.
Another musical project of Johannes Beck is "Studio Bruno". The concept of Studio Bruno is based on a one week stay at Studio Bruno in an old farmhouse in Steigerwald, Franconia, a lovely Nature Park in North Bavaria, where each musician invited brings a machine or an instrument of his choice. The focus of that week is the common producing and live improvising (Studio Bruno)
