MEAT

....is murder! 

Frankfurt/Main in the very early nineties. What wannabe-philosophers from today’s capital of Germany years later polemized as the „Raving Revolution“, was just under way. However the Hessians preferred to party in Clubs like the Omen and Dorian Gray or organized small illegal open air parties out in the woods rather than giving advantage to gigantic industrial ruins. An innocent naive era that still today is inspiring. It’s mind child is Carsten Schuchmann alias DJ Meat. 

Affected by countless Frankfurt-nights since 1990 and finally persuaded in summer 1991 through the mythical love parade Meat became one of the signboards of the city of capital. Getting his merits on playing on unlawful parties in closed motorway service areas, ruins of houses and under bridges he emerged from a backyard-DJ to a real professional. Meat is the weight-bearing column under the famous Freebase Records shop. Founded in 1994, the store swung soon itself from a small backyard shop up to the prime address and since then it belongs to the irrefutable constants in this unstable business even far beyond Germany and the electronic scene. A few years later Meat compiled the splendid "ELECTRO FIELDS" CD for the Hamburg Density label and founded the in-house label Below which deals with everything in-between House, experimental electronic and minimal attempts. In these interfaces DJ Meat also finds himself. 

Equipped with old-school-traits he has both, the forever sharped blades of the past days plus an undelusive instinct for essential novelties. With his mother’s milk he sucked in techno and the basics of Chicago and Detroit which goe s perfectly together with the minimized housy sounds of nowadays. This load of craftsmanship doesn’t remain without consequences. 

Meat was one of the style guiding resident DJs at the earliest incarnation of the Frankfurt down town club “Monza” and jointly responsible for the legendary nimbus of this place. From there on he grooved Sven Väth’s colossal future vision “Cocoon” as a resident before he initiated together with selcted guests and freebase staff the monthly “Freebase Night” at holy Robert-Johnson Club. Up till now his steady home base in the Rhein-Main-area. 

Besides, the passionate socker fan (who else would place a TV in his record shop during the world championship) hops around throughout Europe with growing success. On one of those trips someone might have sold him an extra power-battery that provides him with surplus supernatural energy. Plus all these activities as a DJ, label generator and record shop owner he recently doesn’t only buy special and world’s best records but produces them by himself. Together with Einzelkind he released the smashing first productions “Meat is Murder EP” and a worthy successor called “Words from The Frontline” on the well known label "Get Physical".

Next stop in his producer career was the very successful "La Pena" label where he released with Einzelkind together. 

After a couple of tracks on various compilations Meat and some remix works he did some collaborations with "Reboot" as the remix project "Lakeof" and with his new studio partner Chris Wood with whom he released 2009 two Ep's on his own label Below and Kindisch. 

Beginning of 2010 a new ep of the duo infernale Meat & Chris Wood called "Back Down Ep" was released on the london based label Murmur. After a relaxed summer 2010 and a couple Remixes for Jacuzzi Boys and some other well known Artists , Meat & Wood came back on the homeprint Label Below with their VH2010 ep.

And the production story continued.
