Superpitcher (Kompakt) / Gemini Brothers
SUPERPITCHER (Kompakt Records, Pachanga Boys)
“For the best part of two decades now Aksel Schaufler has been living in his own world, periodically inviting us to glimpse inside, while showing just enough to leave us wanting more. The terrain he’s made is as dark and deep as the woods Robert Frost stopped by one snowy evening, as misty as a Turner landscape, and as imbued with swooning as any 1950s melodrama you’d care to namedrop.
Over the course of two albums, 20 singles, and countless DJ sets, Schaufler’s work as Superpitcher has seen him become a poster-boy for the lovelorn and bluntly elegiac clubber, a producer gifted with the ability to exert influence on emotion without ever sliding into rank, calculatedmanipulation.” – Thump U.K.
Hypnotic and trippy, repetitive rounding sounds journeys.
The Romanian DJs and producers captured the electronic music scene since the 00’s. Influenced by the past roots, but staying strong in the present, the twins evolved as artists developing their own signature in styles they have been experimenting over the years; from Techno to House, from Acid to Minimal.
Their complex and intense rhythms, bassline twists and drive fusion materials drawn in legendary record labels to get their releases on Moodmusic, Skint, Eskimo or Miami’s Bad Barbie. Known as Gemini Brothers or Francis and Francois, they interconnect like no-others, plus, being twins, the mother-heart connection goes beyond same music tastes and continues into never-forget journeys sets and mixes.
Their various genres, combining techno with minimal and ambient, always transition with tracks that never ends gives them the trippy trips to many European places to share their sounds and experience. Now you can find them traveling to various clubs from Barcelona to Warsaw, from Belgrade to Tel-Aviv, from Mamaia’s Sunwaves Festival to London’s Lovebox.
