Michael Bräuninger aka Misanthrop is a electronic music producer, Dj and label-owner (Neosignal Recordings) from Hamburg, Germany.
With more as 10 years of constant work on his own musical and artistic visions in the studio (both audio and video) Germany’s Misanthrop is no stranger to the international Drum & Bass scene at all.
He was caught up by the dark sounds and menacing beats of ‘drum and bass’ in the early nineties, when he decided to produce his own tracks under the moniker ‘Misanthrop’; a name that in his point of view gave him the freedom to use music as a medium to express personal experiences of human interactions. His musical arrangements symbolicly oppose to the lack of candour – his aim is to break through the borders of conventions to set new unusal grounds.
With his hard hitting and distinctive sound his back catalogue consists of two albums (From Deep Space and Raum und Zeit) several EPs (No Quantise, Motor, Energie, Greed of Gain) to chart breaking singles on OWSLA, Mau5trap, Shogun, Critical, Division, Renegade Hardware, over to Shadow Law, Cyanide, Subtitles Music. and of course Neosignal Recordings. His music gets highlighted by international top acts like Amon Tobin, Andy-C, Downlink, Noisia, Dieselboy, Ed Rush & Optical, Black Sun Empire, Phace, Mayhem, Mefjus, Emperor etc.
As DJ, the Hamburg based musician has toured most of the world’s DnB locations, clubs and festivals. His sets are known for flawless mixing, deep cutting edge funk and a modern sonic experience!
Misanthrop is more as one to watch, he has always been around and just waited for the right moment to step out of the shade.
