LA PEÑA / PRESSURE TRAXX / COCOON
Arno Völker aka Einzelkind is a child of music. Regardless if he’s behind the decks of Europe’s finest venues such as Fabric, Sankeys, Space (Ibiza), Robert Johnson, Club der Visionäre, Panorama Bar or Watergate; or producing first class beats for premium musical outlets like White, Infuse, Playhouse, Cocoon – or his own imprints La Peña and Pressure Traxx – he proves that style, class and musical flavor are the three main ingredients needed to set any dance floor ablaze. Touting a variety of styles and an indiscriminate ability to induce moods sets him apart from many of his DJ colleagues. Weather it be warm-up, prime-time or afterhours, Einzelkind possesses the musical collection, knowledge and experience for any situation.
As curator of two of the hottest underground labels – La Peña and Pressure Traxx – it goes without saying that Arno is at the forefront of cutting edge underground electronic music. The big boys cannot get enough of the fruits from these ventures. And now the Pressure Traxx Silver Series, a vinyl only sub label pushes the boat out even further. The first release “Beatrok” from Vinyl Speed Adjust was pulling up trees into the New Year. His ‘Revolver’ album (co-produced with fellow Frankfurt comrade Christian Burkhardt) saw him delve into the depths of a long-player. With Einzelkinds co-producing projects under the name of “Rhythm Factory” and “Hot City Orchestra” there is more proof if you need it of the wide spectrum within quality House and Techno music that Arno embraces. A thirst for breaking tracks and local artists is ever prevalent on his radio show Einzelkind Connected – an outlet to present the hottest unreleased material from the Frankfurt area. 2014 was speckled with debut appearances at the legendary Love Family Park and Sankeys Ibiza as well as terrific new music. 2016 promises even more for and from Einzelkind.
