German techno manufacturer Hendrik Weber recorded in numerous monikers over time, including Glühen 4 and Panthel, yet Pantha du Prince became his renowned and famous. Weber aligned with Dial — a Hamburg-based experimental techno label helmed by Carsten Jost, Turner, and Lawrence — release a his Pantha du Prince materials, which is seen as a its downcast and dark build, in addition to by its minimal and experimental tendencies. He produced his debut as Pantha du Prince using a four-track 12″ discharge, Nowhere (2002), implemented a few years afterwards by way of a full-length Compact disc/dual LP, Gemstone Daze (2004). The record garnered significant acclaim, with some critics gleefully directing out Weber’s affinity for past due-’80s United kingdom shoegaze bands such as for example Slowdive, Moose, Trip, and My Bloody Valentine. His affinity for Detroit techno (? la Carl Craig) and minimal techno (String Response) was noticeable as well. Carrying out a remix 12″ (Butterfly Gal Versions, 2005) along with a one-off 12″ of brand-new materials (Lichten/Walden, 2006), Weber released his second Pantha du Prince full-length, This Bliss (2007), which once again garnered significant acclaim. For example, Spex and Groove — both German techno periodicals — crowned This Bliss making use of their Record from the Month honours, while indie tastemaker Pitchfork gave the record a good review stateside. Weber turned to Hard Trade for Dark Noise (2010), offering guest performances from Tyler Pope (!!!) and Noah Lennox (Pet Collective). Famous brands Four Tet, Hieroglyphic Getting, and Pet Collective supplied remixes for XI Variations of Black Sound, released the next calendar year. In 2013, he released his 4th album, Components of Light — a cooperation with Norway’s Bell Lab. Three years afterwards, he came back with the brand new one “THE WINTERTIME Hymn” (offering Queens, aka Scott Mou). The monitor was the business lead trim to his 5th record, The Triad, that was released by Tough Trade in-may of 2016.
