Achim Brandenburg aka Prosumer comes from Saarbruecken and lives in Berlin. He is an expert in classic Chicago House and Detroit Techno. He gained this expertise first as a fervent record buyer at Saarbruecken's Hard Wax branch, where he later started working behind the counter. It was the heyday of labels like Prescription, the time for soulful house music, which still can be heard in Prosumer's sets today. Slowly, the consumer turned into Prosumer, who by the way is a character in Alvin Toffler's visionary sci fi novel '3rd Wave', in which the term 'Techno' has allegedly been used for the first time ever. Prosumer's debut is released on the 240 Volt label in 2004. A year later, it is followed by 'The Craze' on Playhouse, which turned into a veritable hit record, followed by collaborations with Murat Tepeli or Sebo K and remixes. With Murat Tepeli, he is also performing live, using not only laptops but equipment like drummachines for the shows and incorporating his voice.
