It may be the similarity between two people that brings them closer together, but it's the differences between them that create something special. It would be nothing if those two polar opposites couldn't meet halfway. This is the story of Pan-Pot. Tassilo and Thomas met at the renowned School of Audio Engineering in Berlin, better known as the SAE Institute, and became closer because they were the only two in their studios who had focused attention on the sound of techno. Their early musical efforts placed an emphasis on integrating electronic experimentation with minimal styles, while simultaneously establishing the dark and disturbing sounds that have since become synonymous with their name. The pivotal moment in Pan-Pot's career came in 2007 with the release of their debut album as artists, Pan-O-Rama. The aptly named long player offered a 360-degree vision of techno that was unique, compromised and, above all, its own. The body of work perfectly balanced powerful club pieces with deeper and more intricate atmospheres and gave birth to the hit “Charly”. More recently, “Confronted” and “Captain My Captain” demonstrated their classic, daring and timeless production style, presenting them as producers at the top of their game, both sonically and conceptually. Pan-Pot didn't get where they are just because of their previous hits; the duo has recently lent their art in the form of a second album entitled “The Other” and high-profile remixes for names like the legendary Carl Cox, Slam, Paul Kalkbrenner and the renowned Stephan Bodzin calendar, while boasting a fierce of tour, regularly appearing in the best clubs and biggest festivals in the world such as Time Warp, Awakenings, Glastonbury, Kappa Future and Tomorrowland, to name a few. The incessant tour is the real reason for their success: touching the masses of undulating, euphoric, dancing bodies countless times every year. Not only do they have an electrical energy to watch, but their keen understanding and control of each dance floor is unmatched. Whether it's an intimate night at a club or a huge festival, the Pan-Pot know exactly what to do. Without limits, they masterfully cross Techno, House and everything in between. Even if their name derives from a basic element of studio equipment, they have rewritten concepts of form and function through their own idiosyncratic language and are now entering a completely new world since the release of their label, Second State, in 2014. In recent years, Second State has not only become a platform for Pan-Pot to publish their music, but a creative outlet derived from a family of like-minded artists around them to inspire, imagine and travel the world, spreading the vision of Second State and launching new names into the limelie Lens, Stephan Hinz and Micheal Klein. It's a place where all ideas can flow seamlessly, from music to events, from art to fashion. With no sign of slowing down in sight, Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix have demonstrated that there are no limits to what can be achieved or dreamed of. Now is the time when Pan-Pots are really emerging. Not only as world-class artists and performers, but as trendsetters and masters of their own destiny.
