Panacea

Real Name:
Mathis Mootz
Profile:
Mathis Mootz (b. 18 August 1976 in Wetzlar, Germany) served an apprenticeship in classical music and was a member of the boy's choir of Windsbach. After studying music engineering at the SAE Institute, Mootz worked with the experimental hip hop/illbient label Chrome, an offshoot of Force Inc Music Works. Over the course of several drum and bass albums and many singles, and as A&R manager for Chrome, later renamed Position Chrome, Panacea became known for pushing the bounds of the drum and bass genre into industrial and hardcore territory, and for energetic DJ sets which fused these genres in a live setting.

Mootz's production and recordings are not limited just to Panacea, as he also records experimental, electro, dark ambient and neo-industrial beats as Squaremeter, Disorder 2nd Gen, Warfare, Kate Mosh, Bad Street Boy and Rich Kid. With releases and remixes for labels Position Chrome, Sonic Groove, PRSPCT, Quartz, Mille Plateaux, Ant-Zen, Hands Productions, Turbo-Pimp and Ambush, to name a few.

One of the best names in the Drum&Bass style . His earlier works is the best and only his three first albums are what made Panacea the guy we know with ;

- "Low Profile Darkness" a real stomper as album , sadly some Records has some errors similar as the CD's but it gives it's charm to it .

- "Twisted Designz" to me it is his personal work some tracks would be great in some post-apocalyptic science fiction movies . Not sure why some dislike that Record/Album imo it's lesser commercial than Low Profile Darkness .

- "Phoenix Metabolism" is an okay-ish album but to me it falls flat and i dunno why he started to change his roots of music . Some tracks are great others are plainly boring . Guess he was boring already of what he was doing ??

His Records on Position Chrome are very great some of them are rare to find .

But yes after Phoenix Metabolism he hasn't done many memmorable stuff to remember at .
