Aksel Schaufler, a/k/a Superpitcher, represents the more accessible side of Cologne's ranking minimalist stable, Michael Mayer, et al's Kompakt. His melodic, danceable productions lean toward pop, even torch songs, while his DJ sets balance groove with a portent sense of drama. He's been a little quiet of late, but we're hoping his set will preview the new album due out later this year. With residents JDH and Dave P.
