Pan-Pot Discusses Live Remixing

Native Instruments releases the second installment in THE FUTURE OF DJING video series      01/08/14

Native Instruments is continuing the #futureofdjing discussion started in the first video with house legend MK, aimed at exploring how technological innovation plays a role in shaping the future of DJ culture. The second in THE FUTURE OF DJING video series features Berlin techno giants Pan-Pot describing how live remixing has transformed their sound and the importance of using technology to develop a personal style. Here's more details in NI's own words...

Since 2005, Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix aka Pan-Pot have been steadily electrifying dancefloors with their minimalistic sound design, throbbing basslines, and murky off-kilter melodies. Shot on location in Berlin, the new video shows the duo sharing their thoughts on how important live remixing will become and how tools like TRAKTOR Remix Decks and TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 are now central to their DJing. Tassilo and Thomas provide a first-hand look at the changing art of DJing mentioning that "In the past you would play two records and you mixed it... but now you can put in extra hi-hat, you can rearrange your track and do it however you like."

Complementing the video and going deeper into the ongoing discussion on THE FUTURE OF DJING, many more renowned artists like Dubfire, Carl Cox, and tINI are also sharing their own views on the influence live remixing will have on DJing. UK bass music mogul DJ Fresh says "Remixing our tracks live and reacting to an audience with the tools we previously only had in the studio is one of the most exciting things to happen to music for a long time" while techno icon and former Deep Dish member Dubfire explains that "in the past we were only restricted by our creativity and the limits of technology; but now more than ever technology is stimulating our creative impulses."

The #futureofdjing discussion continues in the coming weeks over social media with more thought-provoking opinions and engaging topics. Pan-Pot are just part of a growing list of high-profile artists responding to questions about THE FUTURE OF DJING. For extra detail on what Pan-Pot thinks, the full exclusive interview is included with the available press kit along with more exclusive quotes from artists like Carl Craig, Francois K, and SBTRKT.
