Berlin / Germany
(Antime Records, Audiolith)
Kalipo is Jakob Häglsperger, a Bavarian born producer who has made a name for himself as a producer for Ira Atari and Fuck Art, Let’s Dance, but is more widely known as a member the German electro punk outfit Frittenbude. As Kalipo, the now Berlin-based artist goes into a different and less wild musical direction, blending lush House rhythms with trance inducing Techno beats. With synthesizers, micro samples and acoustic instruments, Häglsperger intuitively builds melancholic yet driving arcs of suspense which are best to be enjoyed on a hazy Sunday afternoon at home on your couch and will also increase your endorphins on a Saturday night. In his energetic live sets, the renowned producer makes use of his extensive array of analogue synthesizers and drum machines and produces many unique and timeless pieces of music.
