Kolektiv Turmstrasse live


(Connaisseur / Ostwind Records / Hamburg)


Kollektiv Turmstrasse is a project by Christian Hilscher and Nico Plagemann from L¸beck/Hamburg. It all started in 1999, with the two sharing an apartment together. As soon would become apparent, they also shared a deep passion for electronic music.

Influenced by the likes of Basic Channel, the duo went about exploring and experimenting with sounds and styles. Before long, they fell in love with the burgeoning net audio scene and the idealism it represented (and continues to represent). The net audio scene was soon to become a major platform for Kollektiv Turmstrasse.

2004 marked a turning point in the history of KTS. No-response.org, a net label for free electronic music, was formed, providing a permanent home for KTS. The following years were spent honing a distinctive sound and forging new plans and ventures. In 2006, Musik Gewinnt Freunde came to life. Since then, KTS has followed with numerous releases on Ostwind Records, Connaisseur Records and of course...Musik Gewinnt Freunde.
