Dompteur Mooner, one of the most knowledgeable experts in obscure vintage electronic music, stepped into the limelight as part of Zombie Nation, whose 1999 smash hit ‘Kernkraft 400‘ was signed to DJ Hell’s Gigolo label and earned worldwide chart success. Mooner left Zombie Nation and founded his own label, Erkankung Durch Musique.
His sound is influenced by italodisco-B-sides, obscure cosmic-cassettes from his young days, electro, acid, rock, punk-funk, krautrock and the Club le Bomb wildstyle mixing. He thinks of himself more as an agent in sharing his taste in dance music rather than as a performer – although he has got great entertaining potential!
For the Gretchen club night at CTM.12 he specially-compiled a DJ-set focused on the music of the late Conrad Schnitzler. Himself familiar with Schnitzler’s creations, in 2008 Mooner released a remix/edit EP of the late artist’s work on his own Erkrankung Durch Musique imprint.
