Henning Baer is a man on a mission who’s slowly been building his name in Berlin and beyond. As one half of the team behind the Grounded Theory Berlin project they’ve hosted names such as Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Surgeon, Chris Liebing, Function, Redshape, Traversable Wormhole, Perc, Terence Fixmer to name a few.
Grounded Theory, not content with being just a party, is also a booking agency and soon to be label. Looking after Milton Bradley, Subjected, Moerbeck & Sawlin (Vault Series), Fanon Flowers, John Osborn and Sawf, it’s easy to see that Henning is building an ever-expanding stable of young talent, that will shape the face of techno for years to come.
As a DJ, he’s a regular around his hometown of Berlin. On top of his Grounded Theory parties he can be found playing his trade at Berghain, Tresor or Suicide Circus, as well as an increasing number of appearances around the globe like Tokyo, London, Stockholm, Paris, Rome, St. Petersburg or Athens. His no compromise techno has been destroying dancefloors at every turn.
It was only a matter of time before Henning took the next logical step into production. Setting up the K209 label, in 2011, with Milton Bradley and dropping the first release in March. He followed it up with his first solo release on the label in September. He’s since had tracks snapped up by Adam X’s Sonic Groove label as well as Krill Music and Psyk’s Non Series.
After the Tea And Techno blog named Henning in their ‘Ones To Watch For 2012’ list, all the signs are pointing to a very bright future for this exciting prospect.
