Five tracks we can’t wait to see Stimming drop during his India Tour
Few people bring a truly original sound to House music. It’s all very well making some nice grooves and working the dancefloor, but when it comes to longevity and leaving an indelible mark on the genre and the wider musical sphere, you’ve got to bring something new to the table. At a relatively young age, Hamburg’s Martin Stimming did just that. “I want people to see me as an evolving artist, where you never know what exactly it is that you’ll get - but you know that it’s Stimming.” Having already played the violin, piano and drums at the age of 10, aged 16, he began producing music with a computer – something he soon realised was his “destiny”. “I think if more producers would include their own mind and feelings into their music the whole scene would be much more flavoured and diverse which would be good for all of us - at least in an entertaining way.”
Stimming’s productions are filled with a multitude of his own unique, charismatic field recordings, of which he never uses the same sample twice. Nothing is sacred; sources of sound have included a coffee machine, children’s toys, loose change, a vinyl pressing plant, a 22.000 HP ship engine and an Ikea pizza cutter. That being said, we pick out five very diverse tracks for the man that we would love to see him drop during his tour in India.
Paradox are bringing back this legend for a three city tour. Taking it up a notch higher with an experiential audio-visual setup setup by Make Believe for the Mumbai show and support from some of the finest local talent, there's definitely a lot to look forward to on this tour.
