Aksel Schaufler better known by his stage name Superpitcher, is a German producer affliated with Cologne’s Kompakt music label.
Superpitcher made his first appearance on Kompakt’s Total 2 compilation album in 2000 with the song “Shadows”. In 2001, he contributed a track to Kompakt’s first Speicher 12” and released Heroin, a three-track 12” with three different sounds; “Tomorrow” was later included on that year’s Total 3. On 2002’s Total 4 there was another track by Schaufler, an electro-pop cover of Brian Eno’s “Baby’s on Fire”. Soon after that, Schaufler released his second 12”, Yesterday, which featured re-workings of the songs “Tomorrow” and “Heroin”. He also made another appearance that year on Kompakt’s fourth Speicher 12”.
Since stepping out, Schaufler has done steady remixing work for the likes of Dntel, Carsten Jost and several others. In early 2004, Superpitcher released his debut album Here Comes Love. A year later, he released a mix album for Kompakt called Today.
Superpitcher and Michael Mayer have collaborated under the pseudonym Supermayer. Their debut album, Save The World, is due for release on September the 17th 2007 in Europe and September the 25th in the US.
