Up next on the DHA mixtape series is Edinburgh-based Achim Brandenburg aka Prosumer. Originally from Saarbruecken, he’s a highly respectable artist who has a passion for house music, smoothly produces records on the occasion, and enjoys sharing the music he loves.

While deriving his name from Alvin Toffler’s techno sci-fi-bible The Third Wave (producing and consuming at the same time), Prosumer lives up to his name. Creating an album with Murat Tepeli and collaborating with artists such as Tama Sumo, Prosumer has put his name on labels like Frankfurt’s Playhouse, Running Back and Swayzak’s 240 Volts.

On top of having more than a decade of HardWax-enculturation on the clock, he’s spent countless nights in clubs, days digging for records and years refining his art, all while becoming in line with the electronic-music triad in America – Detroit, Chicago and New York.

Prosumer oscillates between the outputs of these great cities. This holds true for his productions, which are riddled with historical references and vertexes, yet they never feel to be out of time or place.
