Techno is more than a category of music, it is an attitude towards life. A generation experience, where personal backgrounds are not that necessary. That’s why “no info, just music” is the winged word of Berlin-based Michael Knop, whose latest project “Distale” is about to develop from an insiders’ tip to a vital component of the scene.
Inspired by his first extraordinary nights in 2006/2007, Michael felt deeply connected to the clear and uncompromising sound. Kick drums like cannon beats, pumping experiences emphatically into one’s mind and a not too highly accelerated tempo are determining for the dirty Distale sound today. Timelessness and an inevitable perfect acoustic, sober and reduced to the essential, but often with a loophole to honest and hugging emotions.
“No info, just music”, right. But music is Distale’s info. Something that not only the labels Senso Sounds, Upon You Records, Waveform Recordings and Paso Music internalized. Even the crowds on the dancefloors around always want to have the latest info. In other words: No techno tale without Distale.
In 2018 Distale joined the Kontrast Artists Agency alongside Oliver Huntemann, Carlo Ruetz, André Winter, Hatzler and Alex Stein. For more information please contact email@example.com.

Distale - Hooka // 5 Years of Senso Sounds
Distale has dropped a few excellent releases on Senso previously, and his 'Hooka' doesn't disappoint either - lazer sharp beats underlie layers of melodic and rhythmic washes.
Distale mixed Distale PTII
After my first Distale mixed Distale, I decided to do a second one... I would love to play them all in a live setup, but with a 40h work week and a social it simply to time intense.
