klang elektronik



Klang Elektronik was founded in July 1993 by Heiko Schäfer aka M/S/O and Atanasios Christos Macias aka Ata. It was distributed via Neuton and it represents the techno face of its parent label, Ongaku Music.

After several self-hosted parties, the DJ career of Heiko Mso starts in 1990 as a sales assistant at Boy Records in Frankfurt. This is followed by a job at the Frankfurt-based label Cyclotron Records.

In 1992 Ata, Atom Heart and Mso produce the cult record Mihon on the Pod Communication label under the pseudonym Ongaku. Shortly after that, the first solo project - likewise co-produced by Atom Heart - entitled M/S/O »Trax« is released on Pod Communication. Ata and Heiko become resident DJs at Frankfurt's cult club XS (later called Box) and found the Ongaku Musik label.

In 1993, Heiko and Ata found Klang Elektronik and Playhouse as sub-labels of Ongaku when Roman Flügel and Jörn Elling Wuttke join the team as producers. After completion of their DJ residency at the XS, Ata and Heiko play as residents at the Dorian Gray club for half a year and several times at the Omen in Frankfurt, before starting their own deep house club evening Wild Pitch Club at Nachtleben in Frankfurt. For five years, the Nachtleben becomes Ata and Heiko's musical home every Thursday night.

In 1997, Heiko hands in his notice at the Delirium Record Store to have more time to concentrate on the ever increasing label work of Ongaku, Klang Elektronik and Playhouse.

In 1998, the first official Ongaku, Playhouse and Klang Elektronik label office opens. This year, and the following years, Heiko's efforts revolve mainly around label work, as well as organising club, party and DJ activities.

Heiko's sets include house as well as techno elements. He finds committing himself to only one style is neither necessary nor would it make sense. His personal style is based on a balanced mixture of both influences. His musical roots lie in soul & funk, disco and Chicago house, but also in reduced and original Detroit techno. Electronic and classic repetitive music has influenced and inspired him since his early childhood.

Klang Elektronik has developed in the last two decades an impressive back catalogue which contains over 150 releases and includes collaborations with acts such as: Alter Ego, Deepgoove, Jan Jelinek,Luciano, Ata, Avus, Daniel Dreier, Jacek Sienkiewicz, Heiko / MSO, Johannes Heil, Meat, Rad Rice, Pete Lazonby, Justin Berkovi, Ricardo Villalobos, Oliver Ho, Roman Flügel, amongst many others.
