In a genre seemingly obsessed with revisiting the past, Âme look firmly to the future of dance music. Driven toward continual evolution since they started making tracks in 2001, the German duo of Frank Wiedemann and Kristian Beyer have challenged club-goers’ expectations with their conceptually driven and uniquely visceral music. Now over 15 years into their career together, their deep understanding of the clubbing landscape and each other’s strengths allows Âme to stay innovative and relevant in a swiftly paced genre. And as primary partners of the Innervisions label/collective with Dixon, the pair continue to foster the future of house with carefully selected releases, all-encompassing live events, and even their own boutique shop that solidifies the connection between the artists and their admirers.

Boris Steffen aka Jichael Mackson journey of sound exploration began in 1995 in Munich, where his innate curiosity for musical patterns would lead him to perform craft his art performing Live for the first time a year after. Boris founded Pastamusik in 1998, he released a handful of records under his aliases Monaco Jam, Sista Bob and Boris Steffen and hosted some epic tech-house parties, highlighting a love-parade truck in 2000.
Jichael Mackson immersed himself on production and over the following years, performing live worldwide – including the now famous Panorama Bar in Berlin. A relocation to Munich, and gigs at emblematic spots such as Resolute, MMA, Rex Club or Rotesone would prove seminal for defining his sound: intrinsically deep and minimal with an unmistakably early morning groove. Not many know like him to flow between Dub, Techno and Electronica.
Jichael Mackson has contributed with his art to several respectful labels like Phictiv, Liebe Detail, Stock5, Hartchef, Musique Risquèe, WIR, Compost, Kurbe or Ilian Tape to point a few. Boris starts the new year with a handful of releases on Akkult, Serrialism, RFR and Teledub.
The three members of N/UM come from a variety of musical backgrounds. Jeremy Loucas is a five time Grammy winning mixing & mastering engineer with years spent as a DJ in the underground party scene in NY – Elias Meister, an electronically experimental guitarist with a decade of performance experience in free and improvised music – Emil Bovbjerg is a vocalist, synth instrumentalist and producer/DJ with a background in orchestration and contemporary arranging and composition. Each performance or recording by N/UM is improvised, with no pre-composed songs, no plan or structure agreed upon. Despite the daring premise and unconventional creative approach the raison d’etre and mission statement of N/UM is simple: The opposite of war is a dance floor.
