Analogue warmth meets raw energy: This furious mixture made Andre Kronert a synonym for powerful and high-octane club sound, as a DJ as well as a producer. Since 1994 the head honcho of Odd/Even, Night Drive Music, 3rd Wave Music and Neurotron Music has set on fire countless parties and festivals, proving himself to be a major reason for escalating atmospheres and bursting dance floors from Dubai to Georgia to Vietnam.
In his productions Andre Kronert performs a mesmerizing balancing act between two worlds. On the one side, there is the raw energy and explosive power of his ecstatic, repetitive rhythms. On the other side his style is characterized by subtle build-ups, filigree sound textures and the warmth of analogue synthesis. For a good reason, since Andre Kronert has been an avid vinyl lover since he started DJing 15 years ago. During his live performances he exclusively relies on his beloved music machinery which includes no laptop. However, he does not regard himself to be a moralizer for the analogue movement: In the end, it’s all about fun!
His prime-time compatible music has been released on labels like Stockholm Limited, ODD / EVEN to name only a few. The live act of Andre Kronert could already be heard in many different countries, using his civic name or presenting secret projects he already played at Berghain, Tresor, Rex Club in Paris, Panorama Bar or at Fusion Festival, to name only a few. His thirst for new enterprises frequently reaches hyperactive dimensions and is the driving force behind his label Odd/Even. So there’s a very good change that we’ll hear even more from Andre Kronert in the near future!
