Das Ding has been living and breathing electro since the 1980s. He is a lifelong synth addict who can now fully communicate through his machines. With them, he can take you to all sorts of exciting and adventurous places, from cosmic futuristic galaxies to darker, more menacing worlds, always with a sense of fun. Because of its rich detail, emotion and narrative, Das Ding’s music works as well on a dance floor as it does at home for closer listening.
Born Danny Boston, he is somehow one of Rotterdam’s undiscovered gems despite a body of work that takes in his own cult and long running cassette label Tear Apart Tapes, and releases on the esteemed likes of Minimal Wave, Pinkman and Go Finger. These include his standout Why Is My Life So Boring and Missing Tapes albums that brought new wave, industrial, synth pop and EBM influences to his always elaborate synth patterns and dynamic drum lines. His modular techno output is also nothing less than fresh, freeform and timeless.
