HAITO GÖPFRICH Haito – the man of innumerable faces and the
Doctor Mabuse of German dance-floors.
He got hooked by the eclectic early DJ-work of Hans Nieswandt and
Eric D. Clark, well-trained on Berlin’s Loveparade vehicles, pressed
into vinyl by most different labels such as Boxer, get Physical, Kickboxer, Malatoid,
Spagat, Low Spirit or Acker Record to name a few… Well, this is our hero, up to
every trick, well-versed producer and Vinyl-DJ. And that’s why Haito keeps
his lines open all the time, gathers input like other people stamps
and nonchalantly combines seemingly incoherent sounds. Yet as a
gifted acoustic juggler, he always manages to land on all fours like
a cat. This guy is definitely not afraid of heights because he’s got
the best protection pad ever: skills.
Which he obviously used to produce “Fiat Lux!” – the multiplex
among the debut albums. In a colourful, thrilling and pictorial way,
Haito tells us his stories from the club and turns out to be a real
master of dramaturgy. “Es werde Licht (Let there be light)”
represents not only the light that projects celluloid onto the
screen, but also the start for a more than diversified round dance of
styles, genres, ideas, sounds and beats. All at full-length and in a
highly entertaining format.
