The erstwhile My My producer has been in charge of Ostgut Ton – the label spawned from the infamous Berghain/Panorama Bar club – since it launched in 2005. He’s long commanded the respect of the Panorama Bar faithful for his tightly mixed, uber-deep, heads down style of DJing.
He maintains a relatively low profile, often keeping things locked down in Room 2 of Ostgut parties outside Berlin while the label’s bigger names pack out the main room. This fact is reflected in the cover art for Panorama Bar 04, which seems to show Höppner’s silhouette against the tiles behind the Panorama Bar DJ booth.
The tracklisting for the mix reveals a smattering of unreleased material from the likes of Jon McMillion, The Mole, Matthew Styles and Dexter, with an intriguing cross section of European and U.S. deep house. The mix finishes on Andrés’ outstanding “New For U”, which looks destined to become a “Deep Burnt” style underground anthem.
Ostgut Ton will release Panorama Bar 04 on July 2, 2012. For some extra reading, check out our 2010 interview with Höppner.
