In a relatively short time, the name Binh has become almost synonymous with the sounds of modern underground Berlin; but it was the training the Düsseldorf native received throughout the country that allowed him to hone tastes and skills before arriving in the capital to claim a stake in its bustling music scene.
The years leading up to 2007 were characterized by a series of breakthroughs and successful residencies throughout Essen and Düsseldorf, a path that naturally led to Berlin, where Binh was able to quickly stand out from among the masses thanks to an extremely particular taste in music and sets overflowing with deep house and techno of the most refined variety, defined by subtlety and sprinkled with the delightfully unexpected. He began his residency at the iconic Club der Visionaere in 2007 and has been winning over crowds ever since at his bi-monthly event, Noon, alongside many a well-known artist of his choosing.
2013 represented a pivotal moment in Binh's career thanks to his first release on Paris' Concrete Music, by way of a track many critics labelled as a high point on the various artists LP it was featured on. The praise has continued on into 2014 with his brand new Downtown EP on Cabaret Recordings and an upcoming release on his own project, Treatment, a joint effort with Onur Özer. The end of summer will also see another release of Binh's by way of new label Time Passages, for which he'll be dropping their first ever EP of the same name.
.....it features many of the Berlin label's core artists: Ricardo Villalobos, Fumiya Tanaka, Margaret Dygas, Binh, Melchior Productions Ltd, Spacetravel and Maayan Nidam all appear, plus there's a rare solo track from Sammy Dee. There's also a tune from Pile, a project of Zip, Markus Nikolai and Perlon's designer Chris Rehberger that was last spotted in 2002.
Perlon, an influential label now in its 20th year, started the Superlongevity series back in 1999. The fifth installment came out in 2010. Superlongevity Six will be released on double-CD and quadruple-vinyl formats.
