ROBERT DIETZ:
Robert Dietz cut his clubbing teeth on the Frankfurt scene dominated by the likes of Sven Vath, Dorian Paic, Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano, but the flourishing artist leaps all musical boundaries. His only guiding principle can be summed up in words of Chuck Roberts: House is a feeling! Beatportal hailed Dietz as one of 2009ís Artists To Watch saying he: came out of nowhere to land on some of the sceneís hottest labels. Though it is true that Dietz has made a major impression on A-list imprints including Cadenza, Cecille, Running Back and Deep Vibes the fact is Robert has been honing his musical prowess for years, ever since he was a teenager dividing his time between Frankfurtís skate parks and the equally frenetic dancefloors of clubs like Robert Johnson and Monza. His early attraction to hip hop culture transformed into a passion for house music and it wasnít long before Dietz was experimenting with a borrowed Roland 303, was well as devoting his time to mastering a pair of Technics 1210s. This grounding in the basic tools of classic house forms the basis for Robertís hypnotic, sexy, nuanced take on electronic music. He always took the ethos of minimal with a grain of salt, preferring to have richness and emotional texture in his tunes rather than simply follow a trend. It is this mindset, coupled with his superb sense of what it takes to make a club explode, that provides the impetus for Dietzís productions Ė and his packed DJ schedule. Dietz is a firm favourite in clubs around the globe. These days he spins at his old haunt, Cocoon Frankfurt, but it is just one stop on an incessent world tour that sees him flit through Pacha, Ibiza; Dance Valley, Amsterdam; Revolver, Australia; Arma17, Moscow; Londonís ultra-hip underground Shoreditch warehouse parties and a second south america Tour in November this year. The appeal of his music is abundantly clear to anyone lucky enough to have caught one of his beachside sets at Ushuaia, Ibiza, where he ingnited the crowd with supple, intoxicating, modern house that captured the celebratory spirit of old-fashioned club music fused with sleek, 21st century.
