Berk Offset
From: GERMANY
Berk Offset

God gave the Brazilians the Samba as a gift, the Portuguese, Fado, the Americans, Country and the Africans the talent for drums. What pray tell has the creator given to the Teutons? The ‘march’ and the ‘flourish’ of course. Added to that, for those that understand and follow through various terrains and such that something new is on the horizon. It belongs to the producer, label owner and live act Berk Offset. With ‘schmusi-musi’ he’s not quite the one. It might have something to do with the pure techno-blood flowing in his veins. Infusing others and thereby to make part of the frenzy is his desire. What ends up twirling from his machines he has given the seemingly-derisive name ‘fehler funk’ (loosely translated ‘error-funk’).

That’s because serious, straight-lined marching orders doesn’t come with his sound. Berk Offset belongs to those of the mind-boggling techno. Those who feature characteristics such as frickle and glitching and minimal, that inadvertently trot along through time. Filled through scarcity his wares have always had a place in electronic dance music. The electrician, cook and constructivist Berk Offset busies himself, alongside soldering irons and resistance, happily with seasonings and a good deal of lard shortening. Often enough has he broken the solder bit.

Put eloquently, the spaces make the groove. That little something something which fills the space between balance and im - balance, between kicking funkiness, insanity, grinning cheeks and a psychot - ic sound-fetish as a meal fashions the sonic habitus for Berk Offset music. He steers his tracks that connect modern sound aesthetics with traditional straight - forwardness. The Berk Offset sound clicks on the lights in the club and leads the dancers to a cellar where a pitiful bohemian village with seven seals sits. Of techno, the co-founder of 9Volt-musik has founded the label Wakkler in 2012 and therewith lets the half-light of the underworld seep out. The first re - lease comes as a limited Various Artists 12" which is wonderful for those that aren't most keen on being carried over the floor by "deep house". Wakkler is a rock label, but with a mouse, machines and data machines instead of guitar, bass and drums. Berk Offset is one of those whose veins and arteries could instead be cables and cords.
