Truth presents Stimming Live
• ABOUT STIMMING •
“I'm neither afraid of showing my emotions nor afraid to include them in my music.”
Few people bring a truly original sound to House music. It’s all very well making some nice grooves and working the dancefloor, but when it comes to longevity and leaving
an indelible mark on the genre and the wider musical sphere, you’ve got to bring something new to the table. At a relatively young age, Hamburg’s Martin Stimming did just that. “I want people to see me as an evolving artist, where you never know what exactly it is that you’ll get - but you know that it’s Stimming.”
Stimming’s productions are filled with a multitude of his own unique, charismatic field recordings, of which he never uses the same sample twice. Nothing is sacred; sources of sound have included a coffee machine, children’s toys, loose change, a vinyl pressing plant, a 22.000 HP ship engine and an Ikea pizza cutter. “You just can’t get that type of material out of a synthesizer. And depending on how much I tweak it afterwards it can be a very natural 'on this earth' kind of feeling, or the exact opposite.”
Stimming performs all over the globe on a regular basis too, from large-scale music festivals to the most intimate club settings. All continents have seen his eclectic live sets. Its worth mentioning a special bond that exists between Stimming and South Africa, where his frequent visits have earned him an extremely loyal fan base.
Although Stimming wouldn’t embellish himself with it, his numerous live performances worldwide, his various releases and his remixes for the likes of Claude VonStroke, Nina Kraviz, Stephan Bodzin and Robert Babicz, to name but a few, have further spread his influence amongst the discerning House and Tech community - and cemented his reputation therein.
