Ritter Butzke on Tour
Berlin (Germany)

60 mins. | Ritter Butzke | 2021 | Disco,House


Our next excursion with Ritter Butzke is with Niconé at The Boat in Berlin in Germany.

Alexander Gerlach aka Niconé has become synonymous with a certain playful touch and light-hearted attitude that flows through his music and goes hand in hand with a laidback natural tenor. Rightfully refusing to be tied to one particular sound, Niconé moves fleet-footedly between summery anthems, tight deep house and leftfield pop-not-pop, while all of his output is united by the fact that there’s always a twist – Niconé is, in other words, anything but boring. While tracks such as ‘Una Rosa’ (2008) and the Bar 25 hymn ‘Nur mal kurz’ (2009) led to well-deserved underground fame early on, the last years have proven to be particularly fruitful. In 2011, Niconé teamed up with his good friend and partner in crime Sascha Braemer to record their hugely successful ‘Romantic Thrills’ album, released on Stil vor Talent. Showcasing a wide spectrum, rather than a rigid definition of house, the album was all killer, no filler, with standouts like ‘Caje feat.(Album Edit)’ becoming inescapable floor movers.

Niconé has also founded another platform to realise his musical vision launching the Dantze label in 2006 together with Philipp Bader. The duo became a trio as Sascha Braemer came on board – the more, the merrier. With a mission to capture the essence of long nights and longer after-hours on record, Dantze relies on a solid core group of artists, as a family- like atmosphere is close to the 3 founders heart. While Berlin has long been home to the Dantze parties, held at hotspots such as Watergate, Kater Holzig or Sisyphos, Niconé has recently been gracing the decks of Social Club in Paris, Fusion Festival and Hive in Zürich. Whether it’s within the context of an intimate club or the more exposed festival stages, Niconé remains true to his ethos: take it easy!
