International DJ, producer and remixer Tino Piontek aka Purple Disco Machine has been on a whirlwind of a musical journey since the conception of his Deep Funk branded House music project in 2009.
The Dresden-born Deep Funk innovator has racked up numerous achievements, although it was his 2013 breakthrough hit ‘My House’, on OFF Recordings, that really propelled PDM onto new heights; landing the No.1 Spot within Beatport’s Deep House chart and, at its peak, No.3 overall. Listen HERE.
The success of ‘My House’ didn’t just stop there as one whole year later the track was still in Beatport’s Deep House Top 100 chart and consequently acquired the prestigious accolade of becoming one of the online retailer’s best selling tracks EVER. With stats like this, it’s no wonder why the A&R reps from, record industry giant, Sony have been knocking on Tino’s door and are now looking to storm the charts with their re-release version, ‘Devil In Me / My House’ Ft. Duane Harden, this winter / early 2015.
Tino Says “I never could have imagined the kind of success that ‘My House’ has given me, it’s been incredible and has changed everything.”
Proving he’s no one-hit-wonder, the German native recreated his previous chart domination with his 2014 summer anthem ‘The Path’, video HERE. A track that was released by Coyu’s revered Spanish imprint Suara and saw him collaborate, for the third time, with fellow countryman Teenage Mutants to go straight in at No.1 on Beatport’s Deep House chart, stay within their overall Top 10 for months and become one of this year’s biggest and most Shazamed tracks. Again, Sony liked what they heard and came calling.
However, it’s not just about the big crossover hits that have the talented German labeled as “the next Duke Dumont or Tensnake” but also about keeping it real on the Deep Funk underground with other notable releases to his name including EPs such as ‘Move or Not’, ‘Funk‘ and ‘Musique’ all on Andre Crom’s Berlin-based OFF Recordings. Furthermore, on January 5th watch out for PDM’s superb forthcoming EP entitled ‘Purple Pianos’ Vol.1 via OFF Recordings, you won’t be disappointed!
Aside from his solo and collaborative work, Tino also holds a mouth-watering remix discography featuring artists such as Harry Romero, Sharam Jey, Dino Lenny, Roland Clark, DJ Pierre and, most recently, the UK No.1 hit by Sigma ft. Paloma Faith ‘Changing’, video HERE. Many of dance music’s iconic labels have taken note of Tino’s sublime remixing talent and have him now marked as their go-to man, boating future re-rubs for imprints such as FFRR, Toolroom, Ultra, Defected and Ministry of Sound to name a few.
Outside the studio, Tino is a very in-demand touring DJ and his schedule has never been busier.
