[ K O N T R O L ]


featuring from Jena, Germany

in their West Coast debut:


(Freude am Tanzen . Musik Krause)

Robag Wruhme and Monkey Maffia, known collectively as

The Wighnomy Brothers, are best friends, label owners,

production partners, and one of planet Earth's most

entertaining and sought-after DJ teams. Known for their

remix-heavy, vodka-soaked extended sets, the delightful

duo from Jena, Germany have travelled the globe far and

wide rocking parties and festivals, but thanks to their

distaste for a certain ex-President of ours, they have

refused to play the US. Until now. We simply adore

these guys and without question, they have held a slot

near the top of our "most wanted" list since we first

sought out on this colorful voyage. Thus, it is with great

pride and pleasure that we celebrate four years of bringing

forward-thinking techno and house to San Francisco with

a four hour set by the inimitable, incomparable, and

absolutely unmissable Wighnomy Brothers in their

exclusive West Coast debut.

Music is the light of their lives! Wighnomy Brothers are Robag Wruhme and Monkey Maffia.

Greetings, friends of the savoury palate. There are more or less three different stylistic methods concerning food ingestion: 1. orderly consumption; 2. suffering through some form of diet and; 3. a balanced feast. The Wighnomy Brothers of Jena have applied the latter, not only to the taking in of nature’s fruitage, but by applying this also to their daily intake of music. Next is to deftly inform the rest of the world. Hereby they purloin not only the vinyl classics of others, but keep to the ultimate aim of keeping their own irons in the forge. The two, tone-artists junkies Gabor Schablitzki (alias Robag Wruhme) and Soeren Bodner (alias Monkey Maffia), react to and revolve around the verbal confrontation. Both tap into you, starting stealthily as a mere bud in your soul, which eventually conquers your musical devotion. It all began with blond perms, armbands, striped stretch pants, heavy (emphasis on heavy) metal and everything that goes with that image. Actually, that is just a collection of lies told with a sigh and a smile. The two buddies’s got to know each other in 1988 while break dancing. The way it happens with some adolescents, the different music styles that passed through their eardrums started with Hip Hop, early electronica of every colour, ambient, house, techno, jazz, funk, and even alternative/independent rock. Both soon concluded that the true sound aesthetic is far away from the instruments; at full blast it is only what pours out of the grooves in the vinyl. This being the case, the established “Phonothek†absorbs, selects and then releases product. The first refuge: Gabor stood in the mid-90’s as “The Chill-Out DJâ€, behind the decks on many a relaxing floor of mother earth. In the meantime he played with Herbie Hancock and stood as a virtuoso in a keyboard shop. In 1996 with Volker Kahl he started the project “Beefcakeâ€. With his, rather experimental but simultaneously harmonious, electronica-devoted release he had notched his own international respect. Until 1997, Gabor & Soeren dashed through the Thuringian club and party scene, and are currently residents in the renowned Club Kassablanca in Jena. However only since April 97 they are known as the Wighnomy Brothers. Since the founding of the Freude am Tanzen label, business has steadily improved. Of course, not without the stumbling blocks and setbacks that happen with marketing mechanisms. However, in accord with the motto “Stehter Tropfen höhlt den Stein†(words of wisdom which mean when translated, steady drops will drill a hole in stone), the FAT vehicle with the Wighnomy Brothers steam engine stays on track. Also, for the last two years there is the added train car called Musikkrause and, the friendly collaboration with the Cologne based Kompakt stable must also be mentioned here. The always multifaceted style of the WB’s has been further developed through club experience, production, and still more flavour expansion efforts. This all brings a functional kick with the ever-present view to the thoroughly rocked dance floor. Originally, they were native to deep and traditional house together with Latin, vocal, and Nujazz flavouring. The musical spectrum lying between advanced in the direction of “raving with reasonâ€. Therefore, stirring, intelligent, technotronic, wide ranging dance music of incalculable worth to body and soul welcomes you. Everything out of the speakers goes straight to the bones, bringing your blood to a boil whether minimal, bounce, shuffling, break, or jazzed tracks. Both gentlemen are solo artists: Robag Wruhme (also as producer) and Monkey Maffia, allowing (when the “blessed union†is on hiatus) both gentlemen the liberty to give and receive unique inspirations. This serves the Wighnomy Brothers the benefit of bringing fresh impressions to the table when collaborating. Monkey-Soeren is also the owner of the Fatplastics recordstore in Jena: quite the ideal refuge and communications platform. Wodka raus, Wighnomy frei!!! (Break out the vodka, Wighnomy is free!!!)
