ANIMAL TRAINER (SWITZERLAND)
HIVE AUDIO | KATERMUKKE
Ever since Animal Trainer launched their global party campaign, the Swiss duo’s unique brand of ‘slow rave’ has captured the imaginations of countless electronic music lovers all over the world and spread their gospel to thousands, if not millions, of music lovers.
Raised in a city with arguably the strongest club scene in Switzerland, Animal Trainer made their name through a series of parties called ‘Rakete’, which still take place at the infamous Hive club. The duo had already spent some time refining their skills as DJs before launching the event, but their sterling reputation was cemented at the club. It was only a matter of time before the ambitious duo pushed things a step further by injecting their love and passion into creating their own music. In 2008, Animal Trainer dropped their first release, ‘Talkshow’, which was followed by releases with some of the industry’s most influential labels: Defected Records, Poker Flat Recordings, mobilee records, Einmusika Recordings, Katermukke and their own highly-regarded Hive Audio label among them. More recently they released ‘Aeron’ on the influential Canadian label My Favorite Robot and have an abundance of material pencilled in for release, including original material and remixes for Freude am Tanzen, You Are We and Monaberry.
Their increasing popularity has taken them from Zurich, and all over Switzerland, to some of Europe’s most respected club spaces; Watergate (Berlin), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Studio 80 (Amsterdam) and Lightbox (London) among them. While their worldwide fanbase has also skyrocketed leading to a myriad international appearances and tours including; South America, the United States, Asia, Australia and Mexico, playing at clubs like Warung Beach Club, D-Edge (Brazil), Bar Americas (Guadalajara), Public Works (San Francisco), Revolver (Melbourne), S.A.S.H. (Sydney),Baum (Bogota) and many more. In the years since their first release Animal Trainer have maintained a constant focus on high quality club music, staying relevant when others have followed the hype, and evolving into a force to be reckoned with. They are party boys who take their music very seriously, but are never serious themselves – it’s a winning combination that has kept them one step ahead and on a constant upwards trajectory.
Whatever they do next you can be sure that it will be something special..
This party will be one to remember.
