Erik Wiegand’s is perhaps one of the brightest, most restless minds to have shaped dance electronics from Berlin. As a producer, DJ, and inventor, he’s inherited the tracks, mixes and even software from the nightclub scene. With MMM and Smith N Hack and respective duets with Fiedel and Frank Timm, Wiegand brings a casual, fun view to dance music, and this has allowed him to squeeze and mix equally in techno and house, funk and disco. But it was via Errorsmith, his solo project, where Wiegand’s creativity found its maximum expression. After more than a decade concentrating on collaborations and inventing and developing software for sound creativity, in 2017 Errorsmith returned in top form with Superlative Fatigue (PAN), an album that maintains a connection with its predecessor Near Disco Dawn (2004), though it’s now refreshed with influences from dancehall and soca. Beyond building his unmistakable sonic signature as Errorsmith, Wiegand is a tireless software creator. He developed Razor for Native Instruments and he’s left a synths and sound libraries for Reaktor. To MUTEK.MX Edition 15, he brings a live performance which, after dominating European summer festival stages, takes tracks from Superlative Fatigue to all-new extremes with unreleased work.
