luc ringeisen

Born In France where he received musical education from the national conservatory and experienced the explosion of Techno Music in Europe in the midd 90's, it is in Ibiza/Spain that Luc Ringeisen started to produce music and did his first experiences as a DJ in the outdoor rave scene. He founded there the records store Vinyl Club in 2003, witch has been an important element in the spread of new styles of underground electronic music in Ibiza in the past decade together with promoters and club owners such as Circoloco, Ibiza Underground or Cocoon. (The underground dance scene in Ibiza was till then limited to outdoor Goa parties, while the island mega clubs were famous for their more commercial oriented house music).

This key position of Luc Ringeisen and his shop in the Ibiza musical renewing made him do his first steps as a "club DJ" at Space Ibiza back in 2004 with a friday night residency and being one of the early DJs of the new born Monza Ibiza at former Penelope, his avantgarde vision of dance music made him play in most of the main Ibiza clubs but Luc very fast identified himself musically and found his home as a DJ at the club Ibiza Underground, and in 2007 he had his first gigs at DC10 at the mondays legendary Circoloco party.

The record label Vinyl Club Recordings he created in 2005 helped to discover some of the best modern underground music producers such as Petre Inspirescu, Jonas Kopp or Anthony Collins and was an expression tool for the DJs - producers of the club DC-10. Also Luc started then to elaborate his very own musical production style powered by a wish to experiment new ways of approaching dance music. The rise of music on digital formats in the DJ world and the decreasing vinyl records sales as a consequence pushed Luc Ringeisen to sell his records store in 2008, and he relocated the label in Berlin where he found a new home where he could focus his work on music production and on his imprint.

Since the very first productions Luc developed a very own musical style, often deep and experimental and often made for psychedelic after-hour sessions, but once in Berlin without the responsibilities of running a record shop Luc could really dig his style to create a very particular musical world (part of his work is to study the effects, on the dancers, of strong "unusual and disorienting musical events", using high-tech sound design) that led him to produce, apart of on his own imprint Vinyl Club, timeless eps on labels such as Safari Electronique, Movida, Darkroom Dubs and soon on Karat Records to name a few. 2012 to 2015 were an important milestone in his career as a producer, the darker years (from an economic point of view) finally over he could re-start the endless pursuit of the ideal production studio, driven by his faith that Techno Music is in evolution, by definition, thanks to the use of new musical technologies, and finally the trap of the utopia of the "digital era" of the past decade being over some manufacturers are pushing again the boundaries or real technology.

Just as the Underground Club in Ibiza, the Club der Visionaere in Berlin became fast the location Luc indentified his music and friendships with, being faithful to his musical, non-commercial and human vision. Since the end of 2011 he teams up with DeWalta to run his event Vinyl Society at Club der Visionaere, the partners "day - night - day again" back to backs became a classic in the sundays/mondays Berlin Techno landscape.

There he can test and re-test his new productions and the ones of his friends of the Vinyl Club crew and he could also dig and reconsider his vision of a DJ session by throwing endless sets that can last 12 hours or way more. His Berlin parties allowed him to share the booth and to introduce to the Berlin scene his favorite DJs and producers.

Nowadays his residency with DeWalta at Club Der Visionaere and the label Vinyl Club became references, while his studio work is now about experimenting technologies like surround possibilities for club-music amongst others, and the production of an album and live show in quadraphonic surround.
