Triple R aka Riley Reinhold started DJing in 1984 in Cologne. He founded his own sound system together with Sascha Koesch (chief editor of De:Bug by now) in 1990. Playing at early techno-house and acid parties in Cologne at every club and illegal party imaginable, he gained a reputation throughout Cologne and beyond. Aside from his DJing, Riley became one of the most well known journalists in electronic music. In 1998, he gave up writing, and founded Traum Schallplatten, and later sub-labels Trapez and My Best Friend. He also has quite a few original productions under his belt, as well as one mix CD on Kompakt, and six on Trapez. In the past ten years, he has turned Traum Schallplatten into one of the largest and most well respected family of techno labels in the world. He hasn't visited New York City since his very memorable appearance at The Bunker at subTonic back in 2005. He is coming over from Germany just to play at The Bunker and our friends at Kontrol in San Francisco. To get a feel for his current sound, check out his recent podcast on Resident Advisor.

Like so many other figureheads in the house and techno scene, Hamburg's influential DJ and producer Marc Schneider got his first taste for dance music via Hip Hop and golden generation artists like Public Enemy, Schooly D or Boogie Down Productions before visits to the legendary, groundbreaking club Front and other influential venues like Opera House and Unit introduced him to house and techno in 1991. He instantly caught the bug for electronic music, absorbed it's sounds and lifestyle and made it his own, which led to his debut as a DJ only one year later. Blessed with a rare talent he secured gigs in hotspots all over Germany almost immediately, was spinning on a global scale as soon as 1994 and held it down at big events like the Love Parade from there on. Yet he never steared away from the original grassroots approach of the movement and helped organize trend-settings events like 'Link', 'Pure Energy', 'Cubic Club' and later the inventive 'Planeten und Blumen' club as well as keeping regular residencies at the famous 'Golden Pudel Club' and the 'Click'. He also helped others DJs and fans getting the platters that matter by joining Container Distribution (probably the first company bringing house wax to Germany ) in 1996. Later, he split from Container and founded with others the 'Word And Sound' distribution company where he is still shaping the taste of a nation as main buyer and sales manager. As if all this wasn't enough, this jack of all trades also has a few 12" releases and remixes under his belt. Never having missed any major development or pivotal release in quality dance music, Marc can flex his DJ-muscles in so many different ways and sensibly guide the crowd through a tasteful and kicking mixture of all things house and techno.
