Tobias Freund

" Tobias Freund has been making music for twenty five years. Besides earning his crust as a hired studio gun, Tobias has a long resume of techno records to his name. Often these have been collaborations, as Sieg Über Die Sonne with Dandy Jack, as Atom™ & Pink Elln with Uwe Schmidt, as nsi. with Max Loderbauer, or most recently as Odd Machine with Ricardo Villalobos. Tobias also records solo, under the name Pink Elln for techno — don’t say it out loud in German, it’s rude — and Tobias for house (remember ‘Street Knowledge’?). All in all, this is a man that has made a huge variety of music from techno to house to neo-acid to experimental/classical records."
