The Production Team
Pig & Dan have nearly twenty years together produced some of the most prolific music in techno. While they have a signature sound, which is precisely recognizable, they have the uncanny ability to push their musical envelope. It’s a contradiction to be identifiable and diverse at the same time, which is a testament to their talent.
Pig & Dan have released music on renowned labels such as Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings, Slam’s Soma, John Digweed’s Bedrock, Monika Kruse’s Terminal M and Richie Hawtins’ Plus 8. Apart from their extensive discography they’ve collaborated and remixed for the some of the industries greats including Underworld, DEADMAU5, John Digweed, and Innercity with their massive classic Goodlife.
After so many years in the business plus four albums under their belt, the dynamic duo took it upon themselves to push their envelope on LP number five by producing the much acclaimed downtempo album ‘Destination Unknown.’ Boasting flavors of Hip-Hop, Dub, and soul, they managed to top the Beatport chart from more than four months in a genre they have never cut previously.
Both behind the decks and in the studio they’ve proved that their momentum is continuously rising. They’ve had a year playing the world’s most famous venues and celebrated a #1 in both the overall and Techno genres on Beatport with their smash hit ‘Growler.’
Pig & Dan also released the album ‘Modular Baptism’ on their label Elevate. Hailed as an accurate reference to their unique sonic diversity, it shot straight to #1 on the Beatport release charts.
They released their ‘Mexico’ EP on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode which celebrated yet again top ten hits. They also had the honor of compiling and mixing the final Space Ibiza compilation CD alongside Carl Cox. Their latest collaboration with Techno Queen Monika Kruse on her own imprint Terminal M smashed up the Beatport charts once again.
Currently, the dynamic duo is once again celebrating top ten on Beatport with their remix of Kollektiv Turmstrasse’s hit track ‘Sorry I’m late.’ This latest remix has gained massive support from industry leaders such as Solomun and Maceo Plex.
The future is blinding with upcoming collaborations ready for release with artists Adam Beyer, Harvey Mckay, ANNA, and Stephan Hinz. Their track, ‘La Bruja,’ was featured on Drumcode’s prolific A-Sides compilation.
