Danilo Plessow

Real Name:
Danilo Plessow
At the tender age of 6, Danilo Plessow`s path in music started with playing drums. With his engagement in a school big band in Schwäbisch Gmünd (near Stuttgart/Germany) he found his love for jazz – and from 11 years of age on he started working on his own music using a computer and samples. Being influenced by Jazz, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and House music, the first results were already released 5 years later at the age of 15/16 on Pulver Records. Together with Joachim Tobias, Danilo had formed the House/Broken Beat project Inverse Cinematics and released the highly acclaimed album Passin’ Through along with many remixes and compilation appearances. The project was and still is a favorite of some of the world’s most influential leftfield DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Rainer Trüby, Michael Rütten and Benji B. After several other co-operations and solo projects in the Nujazz vein (Hipster Wonkaz with Pablo Valentino for Ubiquity Records or solo as Aphro Pzyko for Raw Fusion), Danilo went back to his House music roots with the Motor City Drum Ensemble (MCDE).

This artist moniker refers to his home town Stuttgart, the world's cradle of the automobile and Germany’s very own motor city (w. Mercedes-Benz / Porsche / Bosch a. o.) and obviously is a link to Detroit as well. Taking influences from Soul, Disco and Detroit/Chicago 90`s House, the new moniker soon became his best known. He released five 12” in 2008, and his “Raw Cuts” series made him a shooting star in the Deep House scene.

Having blown the world away with his ‘Raw Cuts’ series released on his own label MCDE (run together with Pablo Valentino), Danilo has made an enormous impact on House and Techno. His other own label Four Roses Recordings has been doing also very good.
