When talking about Berlin’s electronic music scene, it’s difficult not to mention Smash TV – the duo of Holger Zilske & Kai Preussner who have become a byword in the German capital for glitchy, catchy and just downright dirty tech-house music.
Although they are best-known in many circles for mixing last year’s Vol 10 in Get Physical's influential “Full Body Workout” series, Smash TV have been gyrating dancefloors in Berlin and all across Europe for a lot more than 10 years.
Holger, as the outfit’s founder, first found fame with Smash TV by releasing albums on Bpitch Control, and going on to collaborate with the likes of Ellen Alien, Miss Kittin and Claude Von Stroke.
Kai had been silently involved in Smash TV productions since 2001, but has recently stepped up as an official member – and together the two have taken Smash TV to new heights, signing to acclaimed Berlin label Get Physical and developing a devastating live set that has left dancefloors breathless.
Today, the latest incarnation of Smash TV broadcast a distinct blend of complex arrangements, gargantuan basslines and sweat-fuelled percussion – and this is what Holger and Kai will be dropping on the Volar crowd on March 22, where they’ll be backed up by the PUSH residents Frankielam, AKW and Lukas.
