Praised as the “guru of deep house”, Langenberg proves with every gig and release that he effortlessly transcends the borders between genres – whether he seduces the crowds with his epical DJ sets or as the producer of his truly versatile output on labels ranging from Mild Pitch to Josh Wink’s Ovum Recordings. Having released a vast number of floor fillers under various monikers, his international career not only led him to headlining various nights in legendary venues like Panorama Bar or Robert
Johnson but also to join forces production-wise with the mighty Steve Bug himself.

Having started his musical journey in the German Ruhr Area, the witty and "rational" sound of Kompakt became the first major influence for Langenberg’s distinguished style. He soon delved into the roots of techno and house music – devouring all of the Detroit and Chicago history he could lay hands on. While further developing his very refined DJ skills, Langenberg’s sets evolved into elaborate and crowd-lifting masterpieces built from pure warmth and percussive deepness – always peppered with
surprising bits and pieces from his early eclectic freestyle past when he ran secret parties in no-trespassing areas and run-down buildings.

While he steadily gained more and more recognition in the German and international club scene, Langenberg grew fast into his role as an accomplished producer – releasing a string of remarkable releases on labels like Dessous Recordings, Liebe*Detail, Drumpoet Community or STHLM Audio. Simultaneously, he co-founds the Mild Pitch label where he soon becomes one half of the seminal producing/live act duo Ribn.

The fruitful collaboration with Manuel Tur as well as the label’s success itself not only propelled him to work with people like Sasse (Moodmusic) or Sandrino (Innervisions) and releasing on Labels like “Tokyos Finest” Mule Electronic, Styrax Leaves and Poker Flat – but also culminated in being honoured to play live with Ribn as a special guest at the 10 years Resident Advisor celebration “RA X” @ Panorama Bar.

Already having relocated to Berlin, he headlined a growing number of events in the world’s capital of club excesses at venues like Watergate and soon was offered to become resident at Club Chalet. Leaving constantly deeper marks in the vibrant scene, Steve Bug invited him to become a regular at his legendary “Play” events @ IPSE.

The mutual respect of their respective outputs soon led Langenberg and Steve Bug (having remixed early Ribn releases himself) to a fruitful producing partnership, spearheaded by a first joint 12” in late 2017 – and an eagerly expected co-produced full album to be released in April 2018.
He lives and works in Essen / Germany.
