As with a whole lot of other manufacturers on Cologne, Germany’s Kompakt label, it’s extremely difficult to predict what Aksel Schaufler, aka Superpitcher, can do following. He debuted in 1999 using a 7″ within the Kreisel 99 series, after that made his initial appearance on Kompakt correct a year afterwards with “Shadows” — an eerie trip-hop creation seemingly made to soundtrack a 3 A.M. lower a foggy metropolitan alley — for the label’s Total 2 compilation. In 2001, he added a monitor to Kompakt’s initial Speicher 12″ and released Heroin, a three-track 12″ with three different noises; its dreamy, somber “Tomorrow” was afterwards included on that year’s Total 3. Released in 2002, Total 4 included just one more monitor from Schaufler, an easy electropop cover of Brian Eno’s “Baby’s burning.” Immediately after that, Schaufler released his second 12″, Last night, which highlighted reworkings of “Tomorrow” and “Heroin.” Schaufler managed steady remixing work with famous brands Dntel, Carsten Jost, Contriva, Phantom/Ghost, the M.F.A., and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Two creation albums, Here Shows up Like (2004) and Kilimanjaro (2010), along with the combine record Today (2005), had been released on Kompakt, which afterwards rounded up features for UP TO NOW So Super, a double-vinyl anthology released for Record Shop Time 2016. He came back with brand-new Superpitcher music in 2017 using the Golden Ravedays, a 24-monitor album which was released as twelve individual releases during the period of the year. Furthermore to his single output, Schaufler in addition has collaborated with Kompakt don Michael Mayer (as SuperMayer) with Mauricio Rebolledo (as Pachanga Young boys).
