999999999

999999999 are an imposing and inescapable presence at the vanguard of the hard techno scene. In the studio and on stage, the immediacy of uncompromising machine music collides with the unpredictability of improvisation to create an ever-shifting, forward-pushing energetic force. Every thunderous kick, daggering synth stab and twisting acid line is fired off with a clear-sighted intention – everything is pitched to elicit the maximum physical and emotional response from the dancer. There’s no middle ground, just an emphatic tribute to the hard, dark, deep end of the night.

One thing is a certainty, Italian wonder boy Alignment likes to turn heads. Those of his friends and family when he suddenly decided to trade in his hometown of Bologna, for the industrial capital of techno Berlin. With a strong focus to work on his productions and DJ career, Francesco Pier has engaged himself in the heart of the vibrant techno scene. His tracks have caught the attention of techno royalty such as Richie Hawtin, Charlotte de Witte, Ben Klock, Chris Liebing, Laurent Garnier, Amelie Lens, Joseph Cappriati and many more...

Since the first studio outing back in 2009, Nebulos/Serum on Mindset, AnD never stopped evolving and breaking sound barriers. AnD can easily be dubbed among the godfathers of the fast-paced, hard-as-nail, techno that currently is dominating dancefloors around the globe. Releases on Electric Deluxe, Stoor, Soma, Repitch Recordings, Black Sun Records, and Idle Hands, prove that AnD never left his underground roots.
