Few people bring a truly original sound to House music. It’s all very well making some nice grooves and working the dancefloor, but when it comes to longevity and leaving an indelible mark on the genre and the wider musical sphere, you’ve got to bring something new to the table. At a relatively young age, Hamburg’s Martin Stimming did just that. “I want people to see me as an evolving artist, where you never know what exactly you get - but you know that it’s STIMMING.”
Stimming already played the violin, piano and drums at age 10. Aged 16 he began producing music with a computer – something he soon realised was his “destiny. With his future path clearly in mind, Stimming moved to Hamburg at age 19. In 2006 he met two guys named Solomun and Adriano, who just set up their label Diynamic Music in the same year, on which STIMMING soon started releasing. His breakthrough hit, 2008’s “Una Pena”, made the electronic world sit up and take notice. 2009 saw him release his immaculate debut album “Reflections” to great acclaim, fortifying his reputation as one of the most exciting new producers of his generation, which scored him an “Ibiza DJ Award” in the category “Best Newcomer”.
Stimming‘s productions are filled with a multitude of his own unique, charismatic field recordings, and he never uses the same sample twice. Nothing is sacred; sources of sound have included a coffee machine, children’s toys, loose change, a vinyl pressing plant, a 22.000 HP ship engine and an Ikea pizza cutter.
Stimming performs all over the globe on a regular basis, from large music festivals to the most intimate club settings. All continents have seen his eclectic live sets. Worth to mention is a special bond that exists between STIMMING and South Africa, where his frequent visits have earned him an extremely loyal fan base.
Although Stimming wouldn’t embellish himself with it, his remixes for the likes of Claude VonStroke, Nina Kraviz, Stephan Bodzin and Robert Babicz to name but a few have further spread his influence amongst the discerning House and Tech community and cemented his reputation therein.
