Philipp Jung is one half of M.A.N.D.Y. , the Berlin-based duo who have kept the world’s more discerning dance floors moving since they started their first Frankfurt club night in the mid 90s. And the pair hasn’t rested on its laurels. Philipp Jung and Patrick Bodmer are presently the heads of the world-conquering Get Physical label, they’ve played to around 500.000 people at the Love Parade and they’ve recorded a significant number of exceptional mixes.
That the duo’s first introduction to electronic music was the frantic acid house scene of the late 80s, can hardly come as a surprise. Imbedded in their seductive electronic house productions, is precisely the spirit of that electrifying era, which is currently igniting the globe’s parties all over again. But M.A.N.D.Y. are so much more than retrospective. They swipe the best from rave’s past and update it with stealthy present-day production that lends their synth-driven compositions a timeless, iridescent sheen.
Anyone who’s heard them DJ knows that M. A. N. D. Y equals shimmering machine music.
