With their understanding of sound design, with their diverse array of influences, with their thoroughly danceable sound, the Berliner techno duo Pan-Pot are these days one of the world’s biggest techno acts.
They achieved their break-through some eight years ago with their celebrated debut album Pan-O-Rama. Since then they’ve released a double CD compilation that came with a behind-the-scenes documentary that showed them through the space of a year on the road and making music. They’ve just finished a residency on Ibiza, they’ve gone around the world a number of times, playing 120 gigs last year, and these days they tend to play prime time slots at festivals like Timewarp, Awakenings, Creamfields in Argentina and so on. They’ve also set up their own label imprint, Second State.
This Saturday they’re releasing their long-awaited second album The Other
This Saturday they’re releasing their long-awaited second album The Other, with a release party at Watergate with special guests. There’s an afternoon show from 3pm and a night time show from midnight.
The album ranges from the dance-driven techno tracks like Pina and Twelve to more experimental pop and downtempo tracks like Sleepless.
