One of techno's true underground heroes, Function (Dave Sumner) has been DJing and making music for over 25 years. He is a founding member of the Sandwell District collective, Berghain resident, Ostgut recording artist and owner of Infrastructure. Hailing from New York, he was seduced by techno when Jeff Mills held residency (as well as his own first) at Limelight in the early 90s. Producing from the mid-90s onward, he released his first 12"s on Damon Wild's Synewave and his own Infrastructure imprint. In 2008 Dave moved to Berlin and put his focus on the acclaimed Sandwell District imprint. Since then the label has skyrocketed into cult status. In 2013 Function presented his debut album ‘Incubation’ on Ostgut Ton – a modern sound journey. The last couple of years, besides reinventing his label Infrastructure NY with label partner Ed Davenport, Function released the Berghain mix series: Berghain 07 and a remix of Planetary Assault System. Still at the forefront of redefining techno, he’s an artist we always love to welcome on board.
