Profile: PAN POT

It can be the similarities between two people that draw them together, but it's the differences between them that create something special. It would be nothing if those two polar opposites failed to meet in the middle. Such is the story of Pan-Pot.

Tassilo Ippenberger and Thomas Benedix met at Berlin’s renowned SAE, and were drawn together as they were the only two in their studies who had their sights set on the sound of techno. Their initial musical efforts placed a primacy on integrating electronic experimentation with minimal stylings while simultaneously establishing the ominous, murky sounds that have since become synonymous with their name. The next few years saw the release of a steady stream of original tracks and remixes on both Mobilee and Einmaleins Musik.

The defining moment of Pan-Pot's career came in 2007 with the release of their debut artist album, Pan-O-Rama. The body of work perfectly balanced heavy, peak time club stormers to deeper, more intricate atmospherics and birthed the overground hit "Charly". More recently "Confronted" and "Captain My Captain" have demonstrated their classic, bold and timeless production style.

When the two aren't spending countless hours in the studio remixing or creating original work, they are relentlessly touring. From Awakenings to Timewarp to Creamfields, every each of them adds on a badge of accomplishment to their brand.

In 2014, they launched their own label, Second State. which is their platform to release their own music, "create a family of like minded artists around them to create, imagine and travel the world with". One of such signings is the new Belgian princess of techno, Amelie Lens.
