Niederflur (Hannes Wenner and Christopher Bleckmann) have been among the first acts on M-NUS since the early days. Sharing eight years of the label’s history, Niederflur’s releases have come a long way from the first series of 12’s, inspired by the Cologne Subway system, appearing very fragmented and conceptual, to their highly regarded recent releases such as ‘Din’ or ‘Typo EP’ and the latest highly acclaimed ‘Lumen EP’ on Archipel. Working together on their music for over twelve years, Christopher and Hannes never went for the easy option, always staying true to their very own sound-universe, built around ground-shaking basslines and forcing drumpatterns. Their constantly lucid sound, known to be very defined and deep, has experienced some major development to a more impulsive style over the years. The experience of performing live profoundly changed their approach to their Niederflur productions, embracing whatever mood there is to find in a club and building their sets from there. Focused, intense, somewhat radiating dark light and stacking intricate sounds high into the night skies, Niederflur finds a way to push things forward without driving the listener away.
