'Follow' Pan-Pot on Traxsource
A pan-pot is a simple, workday knob, given to side-to-side flip-flopping and not much else. Pan-Pot, on the other hand, are a brilliant multi-dimensional Berlin duo currently twisting house and techno fans into rapturous fits. In just a few short years, Pan-Potâcomprised of Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedixâhave developed a dominate presence amongst the top tier of electronic dance music, wi
th an ascension paralleling the rise of their native label, mobilee records.
Their willingness to expand the components of their productions while staying firmly rooted in what they do bestâcolossal, haunting techno tracks overflowing with noise and static, throbbing bass lines, and epic builds that manage to be both tasteful and restrainedâis only part of what differentiates Pan-Pot from the hordes of other techno producers currently flooding the airwaves. They may name themselves after a piece of gear, but Pan-Potâs music is ultimately about moving bodies, not knobs, all the while giving way to an unprecedented degree of dynamism on dance floors around the world.
