Mia, who left her old homebase Cologne in mid-2004 to resettle in Berlin, is neither to be confused with the most recent Grime hype from the UK, nor the popular German rock band. She runs the Sub Static and Karloff labels with Falko Brockseiper. She has been DJing since the mid-90s and has produced a slew oif singles since her Sub Static debut in 2000. Mia's debut album, "Schwarzweiss", was released on Sub Static in 2004. On this album, she enriched her known style with subtle vocals and edgy acid influences, and got wide rcognition within the music press. In early 2007, Mia's second album "Bittersuess" (bittersweet) turned out to be her greatest success so far, succeeding more than ever to capture dancefloor techno in a sensitive, enchanted way, transporting a magic that is rarely found in most contemporary productions.
Falko Brocksieper runs the labels Sub Static and Karloff Rekordings, along with MIA. Originally started as a platform for own & a few friends' productions in 2000, Sub Static soon developed to be a wellknown center for the many of versions minimal techno, featuring international artists. When the reliable dancefloor compatibility of the label established itself more and more, there was the decision to found a second label, Karloff Rekordings, in order to provide an own seperate playground for more experimental and absurd techno approaches. Falko Brocksieper's first record was released on Sub Static in 2001, followed by further 12"s on his own label, as well as on Resopal, Treibstoff, Dumb Unit, Tongut, and most recently Tuningspork. In 2003 he finished his debut album "Hoax Deluxe", which manifested his style between hypnotic minimalism and buzzing, organic analog funk. Thereafter, Brocksieper was more in demand as a remixer, thus he supplied interpretations for Akufen, Basteroid, Gabriel Ananda, Sid LeRock, Solieb, Dapayk & Padberg and more. In 2004 Falko Brocksieper left his longstanding homebase Cologne, to refuel with new energy and inspiration in Berlin, which has already shown effect in a number of new releases & remixes since. Currently he is working on his second album, which will be released in 2008.
