Henning Baer is a man on a mission. He’s been slowly building his name in Berlin and abroad. As one half of the team behind the Grounded Theory Berlin project, now up to their 14th party, they’ve hosted names such as Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Function, Redshape, Traversable Wormhole, Perc, Pattern Repeat, Terence Fixmer and many more SDD favourites.
Grounded Theory, not content with being just a party, is also a booking agency and soon to be label. Looking after Milton Bradley, Subjected & Moerbeck (Vault Series), Fanon Flowers, Sawlin and SDD Podcast contributor Sawf, it’s easy to see that Henning is building an ever-expanding stable of young techno talent, which will shape the face of techno for years to come.
As a DJ, he’s a regular around his hometown of Berlin. On top of his Grounded Theory parties he can be found plying his trade at the legendary Tresor and Suicide Circus as well as an increasing number of appearances around Europe. His no compromise underground techno has been destroying dancefloors at every turn.
It was only a matter of time before Henning took the next logical step into production. Setting up the K209 label with Milton Bradley and dropping the first release in March last year, he followed it up with his first solo release on the label in September. He’s since had tracks snapped up by Adam X’s Sonic Groove label to be released later on this year.
After the Tea And Techno blog named Henning in their ‘Ones To Watch For 2012’ list, all the signs are pointing to a very bright future for him, and we’re extremely excited to be giving him his UK Debut at the first of our Sunday parties.
