German duo formed by Zip (a.k.a Dimbiman) et Sammy Dee, Pantytec was born at the end of the 90’s in Berlin, city becoming little by little the headquarters of the electronation, and quickly became popular for their “minimal” tunes. These tracks (5 ep et 1 lp in 8 years) all came out on the famous berlin label Perlon (by the way cofounded by Zip) which also produces many other groundbreaking artists such as Richard Vilalobos, Markus Nikolai, (Copacabann)Ark, Kalabrese, Baby Ford,…
They also appear on many compilations from labels like Cocoon, Telegraph or Novamute.
Their sound, even if made of technical cut-ups, noisy basses, weirdo disfigured sounds and other strange stuff, are always groovy and you can sometimes dance on them.
Their music takes clearly part in what we can now openly call the “post-akufenian” movement (…), and with the passing of time, it’s nowadays obvious that Pantytec are one of the finest precursors of this electro-minimal-microhouse-whatever-you-call-it scene, regarding their seminal and stylish productions and their perfect live performances as much as Perlon, one of todays most pioneer, brilliant and groundbreaking label.
