About ASA 808
Ansgar started making music at the age of six, first learning classical piano and guitar, later specializing in music theory and composition, jazz and improvisation. In 2008, at the age of 19, he released a five track EP with his first solo project Hasta la otra méxico!, of which especially Túrána hott kurdís attracted a lot of attention, hitting almost one million views on Vimeo and Youtube.
Driven by his love for electronic music, he started producing and DJing as ASA 808, releasing on George FitzGerald’s ManMakeMusic, Soundspace, Blank, Yarn Audio and his own Toys imprint and playing in venues such as About Blank, Tresor, Ritter Butzke, Lehmann (Stuttgart), B90 (Gdansk), Corvin Club (Budapest), Gewölbe (Cologne), Karlstorbahnhof (Heidelberg), Kong (Munich) and Baalsaal (Hamburg).
Pushing the boundaries of techno, house and bass elements, ASA 808 combines classical instruments with analogue synths and drum machines. Featuring DJs such as Avalon Emerson, Breach, Christian Löffler, Dauwd, Ejeca, Frits Wentink, Huxley, Locked Groove, Shenoda, The Golden Filter, Throwing Snow, Tom Demac, Trikk, Youandewan and xxxy, ASA 808’s Toys parties in Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg and Düsseldorf have become a must go for all lovers of forward-thinking electronic music in Germany.
