Exstatic Sounds brings you; Move D and Robag Wruhme - names we all admire and who’s been inspiring our souls for many many years! This Easter Saturday we eager east Londoners have the pleasure of partying with them from dusk till dawn……
“Robag Wruhme, with a discography of hundreds of releases and remixes, it has been said that there’s not a soul with the slightest interest in electronic music who hasn’t danced to a track by him.”
MOVE D “lf talent converted into record sales, David Moufang, would be a very rich man.” His records with partner Jonas Grossmann as Deep Space Network and his own solo releases as Move D are among the furthest outreaches of techno’s push towards the stars! Moufang grew up in Heidelberg listening to his parents’ collection of early Pink Floyd and Kraftwerk records, but the most overwhelming influence on his childhood was the result of a trip to the cinema with his father to see 2001: A Space Odyssey. “I was space crazy as a child,” Moufang told journalist Tony Marcus in 1995, “when the other kids were riding around in their little cars I’d be building my own spacecraft. I’d put in a small engine, put rubber on the wheels so it made some noise and stand there with a walkie-talkie and my headphones on. It was very techno…”
Moufang’s grandmothers were both classical concert pianists. He can still remember fond childhood moments, sitting under the piano as they played, surrounded and lost in sound. By the age of 12, he taken up drums (he eventually went on to study classical percussion) and took up the guitar a few years later, this time taking lessons from two separate jazz guitar teachers. He played guitar in a band called, Rivers & Trains, well into the ’90s. Occasionally he even plied his trade as a DJ, spinning electro, funk and jazz. It wasn’t until 1989 that he discovered techno when a friend of his, D-Man, invited him to a club he was running in the industrial suburb of Mannheim. When Moufang walked into the Milk! Club that night - like so many others before and after him - he discovered a scene that changed his life. Discovering Detroit, 808 State, Nexus 21 and the first stirrings of ambient techno, Moufang became a committed clubber. Through D-Man, he met Redagain P who converted Moufang’s nickname “Mufti” into the more kinetic Move D. Moufang’s first records were made with Grossmann as Deep Space Network. Their first two albums, EARTH TO INFINITY (1992) and BIG ROOMS (1993) suggested a significant, unpredictable and innovative talent which was confirmed by the release of HOMEWORKS (1993), a Source Records compilation that included solo tracks such as “Pulsar” and “I’ve Been On Drugs” alongside collaborations with D-Man. Ranging from subtle, Detroit-inflected grooves to wired electronic jazz, Moufang’s music seemed to operate on ambience, slow motion and subdued rhythm, a sound that was rooted, as Tony Marcus later pointed out, “in the jazzy, laid-back but still hip-tugging tradition of Larry Heard, Carl Craig’s “Microlovr” or “The Wonders Of Wishing” and New York’s Burrell Brothers… listening to [Moufang’s records] is like a sweet and lazy adventure into sound, a space where time and stress are suspended.” REAGENZ (1994), a collaboration with SpaceTime Continuum’s Jonah Sharp, was an astonishing fusion of beautiful, experimental electronics that reached out to a point that even Detroit’s most visionary producers hadn’t yet achieved. Recorded between Heidelberg and San Francisco, it sounded like pianist Bill Evans might have if he’d grown up surrounded by Star Trek instead of modal jazz. Moufang’s debut album, KUNSTSTOFF.. (1995), was equally remarkable. Tracks such as “Soap Bubbles” and “In/Out” oscillated between soft, dreamlike textures and the spiked electronics that Detroit was beginning to explore. Amazingly pretty and wildly innovative, KUNSTSTOFF remains one of the most accomplished techno albums to emerge from Europe so far.
Robag Wruhme alias Gabor Schablitzki, a beloved member of the German electronic music community, hails from the town of Jena in central Germany. His latest album “Thora Vukk” was released in early May 2011 on DJ Koze’s Pampa Records. Robag is also known as a member of the Kompakt family (his mix CD for Kompakt, “Wuppdeckmischmampflow”, came out in January 2011).
The man with the bizarre release titles is known to be a highly entertaining DJ – although sometimes a little deranged, he always manages to hold it together with ease. Robag has been actively producing since the late 90’s both solo and as one half of Wighnomy Brothers.
The Wighnomy Brothers are Robag Wruhme and Monkey Maffia. The two got to know each other in 1989 (supposedly while break dancing) but became the Wighnomy Brothers in 1997. Robag Wruhme spend a lot of the nineties as a chill-out DJ, starting the project Beefcake in 1996 with Volker Kahl.
Wruhme and Maffia cut their DJ skills at the Thüringer Club, and they are currently residents at Club Kassablanca, both in Jena. The pair founded the record label Freude am Tanzen in 1998 with the motto “Stehter Tropfen höhlt den Stein” (‘steady drops will drill a hole in stone’). In 2002 they added a sublabel Musik Krause, both of which are distributed by the Cologne based Kompakt stable.
The Wighnomy Brothers’ music is self-described as “raving with reason”: sometimes cheerful and sometimes dark, together or solo the pair make minimal techno that punts straight for the dancefloor.
