Oskar Szafraniec isn’t quite 23, yet this Berlin resident has already clocked up a whole decade of tours and record releases.
As to this day now Oskar Szafraniec is playing his live shows in revered spots such as Berlin’s Tresor and perhaps most crucially of all he’s worked with, and continues to collaborate with, many of the most influential and revered electronic producers on the planet.
The double A sided ‘Rawax Aira Series Vol 1 ep’ with Oskar and Mr Villalobos himself did hugely well with its vinyl only release recently on the series that Oskar’s involved in with Roland. They gave Oskar their new kit to test out for their recordings on this Aira series, they invited him to give them feedback on the new equipment, roadtest synths out in the clubs, thus helping to define how these new boxes will look and sound to you and I.
It was in 2014 that Oskar signed a deal to release a track on respected UK house and techno imprint Murge Recordings, pushing himself effortlessly into the record boxes of legendary djs such as Sven Vath and Stacey Pullen .
A full release then followed on the label, the forward looking Savalli ep (at the time described as ‘Kerri Chandler meeting up in secret with Aphex Twin in a backsteet in Berlin’)
