Nils Ohrmann

Real Name:
Nils Ohrmann
Profile:
Dancefloor raconteur Nils Ohrmann is one of Germany’s more renowned beat smiths and club curators. A co-founder of the Arms & Legs record label along with his cohort Daniel Steinberg in 2011, Nils is a highly touted DJ and has also forged his own legacy as a producer.

Since cutting his teeth as a resident DJ at the renowned talent-factory ‘Schnabelbar’ in Kreuzberg, Nils has regularly thrown down at many of Berlin’s major clubs, including Bar25, Sisyphos, Tresor, Wilde Renate, Suicide, and Golden Gate to go with slots at parties all across Europe.

As a DJ, Nils has built up his dancefloor following based upon his penchant for extended, eclectic sets that span broad sonic terrain, traversing minimal house, techno and disco interludes peppered with a healthy dose of the unexpected trax and Nils’ own re-edits.

Nils made the transition into the production realm with immediate success. Nils’ lauded 2009 after-party homage ‘Le Funk Fatale’ on the Hula Hoop Label blossomed into a summer anthem, acquainting dancers with the groove-oriented production style that would imbue later favourites such as ‘In Ya Face’.

In addition to overseeing their Arms & Legs label together, Nils and Daniel have collaborated on cuts such as ‘Hoopin'’, which was remixed by Oliver $, who in turned worked with Nils on a refashioning of Ronald Christoph’s ‘Underground Limbo’. For all his noteworthy collaborations, Nils is equally adept as a solo remixer as his recent reworkings of Stereofysh and Samuel Fach demonstrate in no uncertain terms.

Whether he is in remix mode, DJing or bunkered down in his Berlin studio, Nils’ music is driven by his knack for sonic storytelling and creating an arc of tension. This enterprising ethos makes Nils Ohrmann one of the most engaging figures in Europe’s club realm.
