Discrete Circuit

Currently based in Berlin (DE)


Being an integral part of Berlin’s techno scene, Discrete Circuit has made a significant impact as a promoter, music producer, DJ, and label owner. Over the last decade, he founded and curated the party AWAY, which has earned a reputation as a must-attend event series renowned for its vibrant atmosphere and exceptional line-ups with regular heavyweights and residents such as Moodymann, Omar-S, Move D, Richie Hawtin, Mark Broom, and Axel Boman.


With early releases on labels such as DVS1’s Mistress Recordings, Delsin, and Darko Esser’s Wolfskuil Records, Discrete Circuit recognized the need for his own dedicated imprint to unleash his techno-focused productions, ultimately establishing Astray Records in 2017. Throughout four original EPs, he demonstrated his versatility and artistic range from gloomy techno tracks with experimental notes (“Road Force”) to nostalgic Detroit funk (“Observer EP”) to straightforward bangers (“Control Zero EP”).


After the pandemic hiatus, the jack-of-all-trades returned full of energy making 2023 a significant year. While celebrating a decade of remarkable AWAY events with the quality-stacked compilation AWAY 10 YEARS, Discrete Circuit also launched another exciting endeavor: CIRCUITS, a six-part DJ mix series with each episode exploring a distinct style and mood, reflecting his deep love for all angles of electronic music and beyond.


Despite being occasionally overlooked, Discrete Circuit’s journey will continue on his multifaceted path as a promoter, label curator, and versatile DJ and producer. Shaped by the creative vibrancy of Berlin, the soul of Detroit, and UK’s dark aesthetics, he draws inspiration to keep forging his own sonic identity – soon to be heard on his upcoming Astray EP in October 2023. Driven by an unparalleled open-minded vision, Discrete Circuit remains committed to pushing not only Berlin’s electronic landscape forward.
