Errorsmith

THE AMERICAS: andres@surefireagency.com

Berlin’s Errorsmith has been a respected figure in Germany’s club scene since the mid ‘90s. Through his own releases and his collaborations as part of MMM (with Berghain resident Fiedel), Smith n Hack (with Soundstream/Soundhack) and with Mark Fell, Errorsmith plays with the boundaries of dance music genres for an openness leading to new rhythmic and sonic shapes. Rooted in the club, his music is crafted with an ear for experimentalism, making for some deliciously intriguing physicality. His DJ mixes share a similar philosophy, disregarding genre norms in favor of body-moving eclectic musicality. Renowned for his popular synthesizer plug-in Razor, developed for Native Instruments, his self-built software instruments form the basis of both his productions and live sets. Some 20 years into his career, 2017 saw the release of the long awaited ‘Superlative Fatigue’ album on PAN, which was one of the most acclaimed electronic music albums of 2017 and was featured in End of Year lists of many important music magazines including Fact, Resident Advisor, Xlr8r and more.

In tandem with this release, Errorsmith has developed a unique live show. Far from being a ‘press play and act busy’ kind of affair, he lets the soft synths run in real time on his laptop, to be able to jam the tracks with a high degree of freedom and immediacy during improvisation. In 2018 he played CTM Berlin, Elevate Festival Graz, Hope Works Sheffield, De School Amsterdam, Rokolectiv Bucharest, Mutek SF, Red Bull Music Festival New York, Heart of Noise Innsbruck, Unsound Baku, Sonar Barcelona and is confirmed for Tauron Nowa Muzyka Katowice, Norberg Festival Norberg, Dekmantel Amsterdam, Visions Festival Finistere, Mutek Montreal, Nyege Nyege Festival Uganda and more.
