Todays mix is brought to you by musician and mastering engineer Konstantin Sibold. Hailing from the South of Germany, Stuttgart to be more precisely, the release of ‘Madelaine’ on Innervisions was his big breakthrough.
Born in Stuttgart 1987, Sibold became the youngest resident of the notorious Rocker 33; only two years later he and his long time companion Leif Müller started ‘Common Sense People’. In this event series the focus is on providing an intimate insight into one artist, with extended sets and focused programming, all in line with the mantra of the night – noncomercial, deep and timeless electronic music. Things that are nowadays essential to Konstantins sets as well.
His rise to fame started back in 2010 when his debut vinyl ‘Neuland’ was released on Salon Rosi which soon got picked up and supported by the Kompakt family. The release of ‘Leif/Mariam’ in 2011 followed additional releases on Caramelo and Snork Enterprises. But it was ‘Madelaine’ which got Konstantin Sibold the attention of Dixon and Âme. After the release of the track on the fifth edition of Innervisions’ famous Secret Weapons series, the young German was overwhelmed with inquiries of international stars like Lana Del Rey, Gus Gus and Røyskopp for remixes of their tracks.
Today Konstantin has released music on many prestigious labels, from Kompakt to DFA to Cocoon, has played clubs from Panoramabar to Rex Club to Trouw and was also voted’Newcomer of the Year 2013′ by the readers of Groove Magazine. During the last few months he played plenty of gigs in Amsterdam, most of the time with Amsterdam’s very own Tsepo. On the 5th of September Konstantin and Tsepo will play b2b again, this time for Pleinvrees Heroes Festival.
