Somewhen, Sebastian Bayne.
Somewhen belongs to the new Berlin techno generation, in which original themes of the genre are continued, but whose meanings are adapted to the post-modern context. Futurism and nostalgia - two traditional techno-motives that consciously come together at the producer, DJ and label owner: Somewhen describes both this uncertain time of a 'somehow vague' (whenever) future, but also the confidence to own one's dreams 'sometime' (sometime ) to reach.
In 2014 Somewhen not only impressed with the debut "Cobalt" of his debut EP 9 , but also the second release ( 99 EP) on his own label SANA presented a conceptual and character-strong artist - driven by a sophisticated tonal language. It is not only the search for sometimes decorative, sometimes complex melodies that give the Somewhen sound a unique soul, but also the way he has gone so far.
Born in Berlin in the mid-eighties, Somewhen initially learned to play the drums and the piano, later trying on hip-hop instrumentals. Long before his first release, the Berliner explored the energy-charged potential between beat, groove and melody. Influenced by bands like Depeche Mode or Massive Attack and the ubiquitous club culture of the capital, his sound design shifted ever more clearly into electronic terrain at the latest after the training to Audio Engineer. From hypnotic repetition to the subtle richness of detail to the penchant for atmospheric backdrops: Somewhen's techno-design feeds from different sources today, but they all follow a common vision, with which Somewhen deliberately defies one-dimensionality.Zero EP, undertone 2016 / AFL , Ostgut Ton 2018) he shows that the break with his own routine can be both: way and at the same time goal.
