Now seen as one of the world's most revered techno heavyweights, German producer Rødhåd headlined Mixmag Live at The Garage in Liverpool on March 11.
Born and raised in East Berlin, Mike Bierbach has carved a reputation for sets that pummel clubbers with fearsome techno beats before raising them up to uncharted heights with ambient, textured cuts of dub and house.
As well as his skills as a selector, his Dystopian parties, running since 2009, are another thing that really got people talking. It was at these he'd be able to showcase his talent on the decks, as well as pulling in other German techno royalty like Ben Klock.
Closing sets at Berghain soon followed, often playing for eight hours, before entering the production realm in 2012. The '1984' EP was the first release on his label, also called Dystopian, and high-profile names like Daniel Avery and Radio Slave have singled him out for remixes.
