Podcast 017 comes from our good friend Thomas Schrieiber. We met Tom through his Rizumu parties based in Philadelphia.
Thomas Schreiber brings a playful cleverness, warmth and emotion to the dancefloor. His style of stripped-down funk and rhythm is back-dropped by a tapestry of strange and sexy soundscapes.
Thomas began mixing records in 1996 and moved to Philadelphia in 2002 when the landscape there was sparse. As the key founding member of rizumu, Thomas bridged the gap between the already established local collectives and organized undergrounds on a weekly and monthly basis, thereby setting up a foundation around which the growing community would converge.
Taking influence from the East Coast scene of the mid to late nineties and from the early Detroit Electronic Music Festivals, Thomas’s vision for making Philadelphia a hub for touring artists soon became a reality. Artists such as Derrick May, Daniel Bell, Kenny Larkin, Marcel Dettmann, Frank Bretschneider, Dandy Jack, Bart Skils, Seth Troxler and Josh Wink would play at the dark and intimate undergrounds for rizumu’s audience of knowledgeable listeners and dedicated dancers.
Thomas played events in NYC, Moscow, Detroit, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Santa Fe and Denver, for Kontrol, The Buker, Droid Behavior, Make Mistakes and more.
In 2009, Thomas picked up and moved to New Mexico to try something different. He immediately was at home with the Rocky Mountain techno scene and was fortunate to play some extremely memorable sets in both Santa Fe and Denver during this time. However, an unexpected turn of events found Thomas making the transatlantic move to Madrid only a year after his arrival.
Now settled into life in Madrid, Thomas has begun the journey of imparting his experiences to tape, quietly preparing for what comes next.
