Luc Ringeisen & Jacq (Funhaus)
Born In France, it is in Ibiza/Spain that Luc Ringeisen started to produce music and did his ﬁrst experiences as a DJ in the outdoor rave scene and founded the records store Vinyl Club in 2003, wich has been an important element in the spread of new styles of underground electronic music in Ibiza in the past decade together with promoters and club owners such as Circoloco, Ibiza Underground or Cocoon. (The underground dance scene in Ibiza was till then limited to outdoor Goa-Trance parties, while the island mega clubs were famous for their comercial house music).
This key position of Luc Ringeisen and his shop in the Ibiza musical renewing made him do his ﬁrst steps as a "club DJ" at Space Ibiza back in 2004 with a friday night residency and being one of the early DJs of the new born Monza Ibiza, his avant- garde vision of dance music made him play in all the Ibiza clubs but Luc very fast identiﬁed himself musicaly and found his home as a DJ at the club Ibiza Underground, and in 2007 he had his ﬁrst gigs at DC10 at the mondays legendary Circoloco party.
The record label Vinyl Club Recordings he created in 2005 helped to discover some of the best underground music producers of the moment such as Petre Inspirescu, Jonas Kopp, Anthony Collins and was an expression tool for the DJs - producers of the club DC-10. Also Luc started then to elaborate his very own musical production style powered by a wish to experiment new ways of approaching dance music.
The rise of music on digital formats in the DJ world and the decreasing vinyl records sales as a consequence pushed Luc Ringeisen to sell his records store in 2008, and he relocated the label in Berlin where he found a new home where he could focus his work on music production and on his imprint. Since the very ﬁrst productions Luc developed a very own musical style, often deep and experimental and often made for psychedelic after-hour sessions, but once in Berlin without the responsibilities of running a record shop Luc could really dig his style to create a very particular musical world that led him to produce, apart of on his own imprint Vinyl Club, timeless eps on labels such as Safari Electronique, Movida, Darkroom Dubs and very soon on Karat Records. Just as the Underground Club in Ibiza, the Club der Visionaere in Berlin became fast the location Luc Ringeisen indentiﬁed his music and friendships with, being faithful to his non-comercial and human vision. Since then end of 2011 he teams up with Dewalta to run his event Vinyl Society at Club der Visionaere. There he can test and re-test his new productions and the ones of his friends of the Vinyl Club crew and he could also dig and reconsider his vision of a DJ session by throwing endless sets that can last 12 hours or more..
Nowadays Luc Ringeisen still DJs in his favorite Berlin and Ibiza clubs and selected spots in Europe, and the label Vinyl Club became a reference in the underground Techno scene.
