© Stefan Goldmann Finn Johannsen Named the “the leading avant-garde techno label” in the world by De:Bug Magazine, Macro celebrates it’s fifth anniversary with the stunning two-disc “Macrospective” compilation...

Two DJs, one tracklist. Probably for the first time in the history of dance music a release focuses on extracting the pure sound signature of the DJ. When the tracks to choose from are limited to one playlist, the sequencing decisions and mix styles of the DJs reveal their individualities as well as the different possibilities the music allows when formed into one continuous stream. “Macrospective” is the first conceptual double mix offering a one on one comparison of the art of DJing with two masters of the craft - Macro founders Stefan Goldmann & Finn Johannsen. But you’ll also love it for being a comprehensive retrospective of one of the most intriguing contemporary label catalogues in electronic music.

The two mixes highlight key works of the label (including poll winners The Maze, Law Of Return, Arcade & Lunatic Fringe), bringing out the versatility and individuality of each track. Great music allows for more than a single interpretation. Who could better suggest one than the A&Rs behind Macro and the resident DJs at the label’s residency at Berlin’s legendary Berghain club?

Finn Johannsen’s mix is a one-take live journey through build-ups, peaks and comedowns, but also detours, distractions and surprises. Stefan Goldmann’s alternative take is a carefully constructed “architectural” mix, locking specific turning points of the tracks to form an 80 minutes dramatic composition of Macro’s essence. By the way, both DJ mixes are vinyl mixes. In an era of dull mp3s, the aesthetics of Macro’s carefully cut record releases are the basis for this double album.

Accompanying the CD release is a Beatport exclusive unmixed compilation of Macro tracks entitled "Macrospective – Vinylism." This companion release offers digital downloads of tracks transferred from vinyl with the aim of offering versions with a true "vinyl effect." This will enable digital DJs to get the same sound as vinyl DJs.

About Stefan Goldmann & Finn Johannsen:

Stefan Goldmann has not only produced some of the most significant tracks of the last five years (The Maze, Sleepy Hollow, Art of Sorrow), but also delivered a string of delicately conceptual works, ranging from a “minimally invasive” edit of Igor Stravinsky to a “change all” remix for Fennesz. Going beyond the known and established has become his operating principle. Often his works split critics down the middle – the distortion excess of “The Maze” or the Japanese bent of “Arcade remix” were met with accolades on one side and harsh criticism on the other. Nevertheless, the more heat a track received, the more devastation it caused on the dancefloors of the world’s leading clubs and festivals.

Finn Johannsen is a DJ since the 80s, and over the years he played numerous national and

international gigs. He is a sought-after mainstay of Berlin’s vibrant club scene and beyond and his widely acclaimed mixes and radio shows are all over the web. Finn Johannsen also gained high profile as a music journalist with highly regarded writings for De:bug and Groove Magazines, Resident Advisor and several other print and web media publications. He also works for the legendary Hard Wax store.
