For your national holiday special, one more event production boss after bringing Mutual Dreaming landlady Aurora Halal, Bunker New York's Bryan Kasenic and 2 more Bunker guys, time to back to Berlin, Henning Baer is the one, the senior resident DJ of Grounded Theory, one of its founders, curator of its celebrated events, and a DJ of worldwide renown for ability and tastes. As a skilled DJ, he has honed a rhythmic, razor-sharp style that takes in techno new and old, and now travels abroad for gigs most weekends.
In 2004, a fresh-faced Henning Baer arrived in Berlin, he quickly immersed himself in Berlin's techno scene, buying records and visiting clubs every weekend. Soon enough, Baer and a friend, Micha Baldé, hatched plans for a party of their own, and in September 2009 launched Grounded Theory, a semi-regular event that became one of Berlin's most popular techno nights. Grounded Theory has grown from a bracing new idea in Berlin techno to an institution of artistic nightlife both at its home and around the continent. Directed with acute vision and unerring judgment, its philosophy extracted from Henning’s long years at the front lines of electronic music, it remains diverse and cutting edge. Mirroring Henning Baer's DJ sets, Grounded Theory combines music from different eras and areas, remaining rooted in techno while shedding light on sounds less frequently heard on Berlin dance floors: forward UK music, experimental electronics, and underground techno names from across the globe, both new and established.
Following on years of closely-synchronized work with fellow residentMilton Bradley, Henning Baer is now asserting greater independence with innovative new production styles on a recent EP for Taanstaafl Planets. The launch of his own MANHIGH imprint buttresses the foundation of his own work, to be built up alongside a select few whose productions meet the curatorial acumen of one of techno’s finest ears. After esteemed releases on Sonic Groove, K209, Non Series and elsewhere, fans worldwide have much to look forward to from a label whose standards match those of Grounded Theory.
Already a respected artist, Henning’s diligence has transported him from the counter to the shelves of Hardwax and from the floor to the booth of Berghain in regular appearances. Now he is building further upon these impressive accomplishments, profoundly shaping contemporary techno from recent memory into the foreseeable future.
