Kompakt-affiliated DJ and producer
Superpitcher grew up in the south of Germany, alone and lonely. He started to collect music at 16, seduced by the soft sounds of Prefab Sprout, Scritti Politti and Roxy Music. A decade later, he found himself working in the distribution department of Kompakt and found new heroes—Wolfgang Voigt, Chain Reaction, Joerg Burger and Air Liquide: men that linked his sonic youth and adult aspirations.
Following the release of his landmark 2001 single, “Heroin,” he gave up work, deciding to forge a new nocturnal lifestyle, increasing his DJing, steadied his socializing and worked on perfecting his studio production skills—nothing less than engulfing electronic pop and shimmering, glimmering techno. Today, Superpitcher has managed to accumulate a diverse discography that includes his unforgettable version of Brian Eno’s “Baby’s On Fire,” the acclaimed full-length “Here Comes Love,” the celebrated mix CD “Today” and remixes for the likes of Dntel, Quarks, M83 and DJ Hell.
