Hailing from the rough depths of Eastern Germany, Cyan85 brings a diverse sound to the thriving electro scene that drifts effortlessly from soulful and warm sun-drenched anthems, right through to in-the-red, robotic slammers.
It’s easy to draw parallels between the industrialised East and the infamous US area code 313. The discarded remains of a once-thriving center of manufacturing provide many havens for electro lovers in the form of abandoned factories and warehouses. Similar to the Detroit forefathers from whom he draws his influences, it was in these concrete spaces that Cyan85 first cut his teeth a little over half a decade ago.
Since then, he has garnered a name for himself as a capable and versatile DJ, traversing multiple genres as he brings his sets from dreamy, downtempo lushness to hard-hitting machine-driven funk. Eclecticism is a deep part of his musical identity and one that is clearly apparent in his debut EP “Bay of Sampieri”, released on the seminal, Berlin-based label Voitax.
Cyan85’s bouncy, energetic sound comes from a music-making process with live, hardware-based improvisation at its heart. Nestled in his cosy studio next to Kalif Storch Club, he jams out on a variety of vintage synths and drum machines. He then edits, processes and augments using a collection of software plugins to create his own, modernised take on that classic Detroit style.
