Mix- Prosumer – Louche Podcast – 21-10-2011
Mix- Prosumer – Prosumer (Ostgut Ton/Playhouse) – Special Wild Mix – October 2009
Some might take the fact that we haven’t done a party since last July as definitive proof (as if it were needed) that CO-OP is run by a couple of sun-fearing ex-pats who couldn’t possibly venture out over the summer months. However, we’d like to offer an alternative explanation for our tardiness – we don’t really like to do things for the sake of it. Its why we’re only up to our ninth showcase event in over two and a half years and also, quite probably, why we’ve been lucky enough to declare a decent number of those sell outs.
Our man Achim Brandenburg AKA Prosumer has been playing his own blend of House, Techno and far beyond since the late 90s, strongly influenced by the staples of Detroit, Chicago and New York but always open to the left-of-centre and forward-of-thought sounds that add a new level of intrigue and interest to something more traditional. Its this personal touch which has seen Prosumer reach such high regard with punters and peers alike as one of Panorama Bar’s key residents. No doubt he doesn’t give a fuck about polls, but for your reference he came in at #40 on RA’s Top 100 DJs countdown for 2011 and his second home Berghain/Panorama Bar made it to #6 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs countdown. He’s got pedigree, is what we’re getting at.
Our venue of choice for CO-OP’s ninth life is one we’ve used before, albeit under a different name – remember Motor City Drum Ensemble at The Vault, anyone? You know, the one where he locked his records in the hotel? Well, that’s where we’re headed, its just that its now known as One22. Its still a cosy basement in the heart of the city with reasonably priced drinks and a noticeable absence of Kings Cross-itis, but has been given a tune-up (system et al) for re-launch and is now attracting the best possible heat from Sydney’s clubbing fraternity with a solid weekly line-up of local and international talent.
As usual, Resident Advisor is your ticket to ride for our latest showcase so off you go. No, not that way, there, that’s it. Buy now or pay (more) later. An email to co_op_club@hotmail for limited discount issues may also pay dividends if dispatched in timely fashion. Then again, it may not, we’re all about the drama…
