Robag Wruhme alias Gabor Schablitzki, a beloved member of the German electronic music community, hails from the town of Jena in central Germany. His latest album “Thora Vukk” was released in early May 2011 on DJ Koze’s Pampa Records. Robag is also known as a member of the Kompakt family (his mix CD for Kompakt, “Wuppdeckmischmampflow”, came out in January 2011). He has also been closely involved with the Jena-based Freude am Tanzen label.
The man with the bizarre release titles is known to be a highly entertaining DJ – although sometimes a little deranged, he always manages to hold it together with ease. Robag has been actively producing since the late 90’s both solo and as one half of Wighnomy Brothers.
The Wighnomy Brothers are Robag Wruhme and Monkey Maffia. The two got to know each other in 1989 (supposedly while break dancing) but became the Wighnomy Brothers in 1997. Robag Wruhme spend a lot of the nineties as a chill-out DJ, starting the project Beefcake in 1996 with Volker Kahl.
Wruhme and Maffia cut their DJ skills at the Thüringer Club, and they are currently residents at Club Kassablanca, both in Jena. The pair founded the record label Freude am Tanzen in 1998 with the motto “Stehter Tropfen höhlt den Stein” (‘steady drops will drill a hole in stone’). In 2002 they added a sublabel Musik Krause, both of which are distributed by the Cologne based Kompakt stable.
The Wighnomy Brothers’ music is self-described as “raving with reason”: sometimes cheerful and sometimes dark, together or solo the pair make minimal techno that punts straight for the dancefloor.
With a discography of hundreds of releases and remixes, it has been said that there’s not a soul with the slightest interest in electronic music who hasn’t danced to a track by Robag Wruhme.
