Interview: Kassem Mosse & Even Tuell

Those who have followed German imprint Workshop Records will already be well aware of the label’s strong visual and musical aesthetic. Built around a core of artists – chiefly label bosses Even Tuell and Lowtec alongside Move D and Kassem Mosse among others – the Workshop sound touches on melodic, dusty and raw house and techno. The label was launched in 2006 shortly after Lowtec (aka Jens Kuhn) folded his Out To Lunch imprint. Every release since then has been imbued with the deepest of grooves, from the woozy narcosis of Lowtec’s Workshop 6 to Move D’s disco-sampling jam on Workshop 4 and the epic B-Side of Mosse’s recent Workshop 12 release.

A distribution hook-up with Germany’s home of discerning dancefloor music, Hardwax, gave Workshop the platform it deserved, and it has flourished. Given the attention to detail that accompanies every Workshop release – it’s the little things that stand out, like shrink wrapping, hand stamped vinyl and embossed text – it should be of no surprise to learn that one half of the label runs a boutique fashion label, with Even Tuell (real name Paul-David) having launched Airbag Craftworks back in 1995. Juno Plus editor Aaron Coultate caught up with Kassem and Even prior to the recent Workshop Records showcase hosted by London club types Electric Minds.

Even, how did you meet Kassem? His music seems to be such a nice fit for the Workshop Records sound.

ET: We met through our agent, Nadine. I was compiling an Airbag Craftworks compilation, together with Jens (Lowtec), who used to run the Out To Lunch label and with whom I started the Workshop label in 2006. Kassem was promoted by Nadine as a very talented musician from Leipzig that not many people had heard of – a bit of a local underground hero. And then this mysterious CD arrived with ‘K Mosse’ written on it; at first I thought it was Kate Moss so I was a bit baffled! But from the first time I listened to it I fell in love with it. This was a long time before Workshop was born, and for a while I was just collecting his demo CDs – I still have them in a cardboard box – and his tracks were supposed to be on the second or third Airbag Craftworks compilation, which never was released. But soon after, Jens stopped doing Out For Lunch because of some distribution issues, and we came up with Workshop. The first release was from Jens, as Lowtec, then there was one from Move D, and then we were thinking about what should come next. It was at the point we said, right, we’ve got some great demos here, let’s do a Kassem Mosse release. That release pushed Workshop in a really open-minded direction and, for me, it was a pretty fresh take on house music, as it incorporated a lot of IDM and slow mo vibes, with a rough feel to it. It was perfect, because at that time I was really bored with a lot of new deep house and disco and all the retro music that was going on, and I think Gunnar’s music added something unique at that point.

Kassem, you’ve done three records on Workshop now – do you feel part of the Workshop family?

KM: Yes, definitely. It’s a real honour to be releasing with these guys, being in such good company.

ET: We have a concentrated inner circle of artists with whom we want to release solo EPs, and we’re looking to do more albums in the future and open slots for newcomers. But Gunnar is really one of the central members. We want to keep a special sound and quality to everything we do, and he brings that to his music.

The visual and sonic signature of Workshop is interesting. Is it important for you to build a signature style for the label?

ET: Yes, we tried to come up with a concept that we could stand by. There’s an organic feel to the records, something handmade. On one side it’s lo-fi, then there’s little details like embossing. We also decided to give it a shrink wrap, which is not so common for white label releases. We also invest a lot into the mastering and manufacturing process. And to stamp it and then shrink wrap it makes it pretty slick at the end, especially to all the collectors. It doesn’t have a white label feel to it. Of course Hardwax do a lot of those, you only have the paper sheet around the record, which is great. But when I like one of these records I’ll always try to get another sleeve for them! (laughs)

Your own output has been pretty slow – only a handful of releases in the past decade – but I presume this is because of your day job with Airbag Craftworks? How does it tie in with what you and Lowtec do at Workshop?

ET: Airbag Craftworks is a fashion and design label that started in 1995. I’ve been working on developing it quite strongly over the last years. We started off making quite unique record bags, and it has a strong musical background. It’s all connected – it was great to have the Airbag Craftworks compilation on Out To Lunch, which allowed my friendship with Jens to grow. Workshop grew from our love of underground music, and what we listen to, what we feel… our roots. And through Workshop, we have created and found a perfect platform to express our musical and aesthetic view.

So do you get much time in the studio?

ET: I find a lot of time to lock myself in the studio, to experiment, especially in winter, to record. I like to experiment with old machines and weird, forgotten mixers, and using my father’s old organ delay and reverb. I like the idea of bringing my family’s music history into my little electronic studio, but in a very abstracted and distracted way. I take my time for music, but if I don’t have the time, I don’t want to be forced into the studio. This is something I had to learn the hard way – if you accept a remix request, something that comes with an official release date, and you don’t have the time to finish it, you can’t say no. It’s hard to deliver something that’s unfinished or something you don’t 100 per cent stand behind. Now I try to just follow my own release schedule – I want to be the one who says now it’s ready, now it can come out.

Kassem, your releases have been picked up with a great deal of interest in the UK. A lot of the British dubstep producers who have moved into house and techno have professed a great admiration of you. Did that come as a surprise at first? You’ve released on NonPlus and Doldrums now – how did they come about?

KM: Yeah I was surprised at first, because I hadn’t been following it too much. I don’t really buy that many records, just a couple here and there, and I’ve got my own niches I like to explore, and dubstep wasn’t really on my radar. I was approached by Doldrums and Non Plus, and also offered to do the Commix remix, which was very interesting to me. I’ve got nothing against house, but I don’t want to be pigeon holed with any particular sound, so the Commix project was ideal. I want to do something that I see as a challenge, something that is exciting to me. I appreciated the open-mindedness on their part.

You said in an interview last year that you plan to make more effort regarding the dubstep sound. Have you managed to do this, and, if so, which labels and producers stand out to you?

KM: A little bit, but I don’t know where to start and I don’t have the access. As I mentioned I don’t buy that many records, and when I come here I realise it’s a very specific thing, very much a UK thing. I don’t live here and I’m not really embedded in that culture, I’m looking at it from the outside.

What’s Leipzig like as a music city?

KM: I’ve been living there for close to 14 years. Musically, there are lots of things going on; there’s a popular house scene, there’s some good techno things going on. I was involved with some local crews who did techno parties, it was all non-commercial type stuff. And in terms of localities –Jens lives right in between myself and Even. I knew him because he used to play at some parties in Lepizig, so there are some connections there. So there’s a link between all of us.

Even, you’re based in Frankfurt, a city with a very impressive history when it comes to electronic music…how has that impacted on you?

ET: That’s true, but it’s funny because in the very early 90s, I was escaping to Leipzig from Frankfurt (laughs). I was having much nicer musical experiences there. There was lots of great deep house and a healthy US house scene in Leipzig, shortly after the opening of the border. I was living in Paris for half a year and went to a lot of nice club nights there; Laurent Garnier was putting on a regular night at that stage. And then coming back to Frankfurt, I became friends with people in that deep house scene; ND_Baumecker, Ata, Heiko (founder of Playhouse). I was connected to them closely, and of course that was the base for the Robert Johnson. The Frankfurt underground had some good exports, the town next to Frankfurt, Damstade was the home of Jan Jelinek, Peter Kremier (LoSoul) and Roman Flugel, so there was an interesting cluster of IDM-ish house.

And I guess that in turn impacted on the Workshop sound…

ET: Very much so. We had beautiful parties when Ricardo Villalobos started his DJ career as a Chicago house and Detroit techno DJ. He was inviting people to his huge raves, it was all pretty impressive.

Kassem, your release on FXHE last year is one of my favourite releases on Omar S’s label. What was it like working with Alex?

KM: It was great. He was a big influence on me, because there was a stage where I was bored with most dance music, and he came with this rough, edgy stuff. It was so good to hear it – it was very inspiring to me.

There’s a certain style and attitude that he brings to his music…how did that translate into the studio?

KM: He is unique. I took the original track … he wanted to re-release it just like that, and he was suggesting we do some new mixes, but I wasn’t sure what he wanted to do (laughs). We met in a makeshift studio in Berlin and we just did new mixes for it. I was just sitting there watching him do whatever he did. He’s very focused, just sitting there turning knobs, and as soon as he’s finished he’s chatty and talking again.

Kassem, tell me about your live show? What does it involve and why did you decide to put one together instead of DJing?

KM: I’m not sure if I prefer it; it’s very different. I like both. I tend to change my live set-up a lot, I have different bits and pieces because I want to keep it interesting for myself. I like things to be good but I also like an element of uncertainty to keep it interesting and challenging. Things might go in a different way then I expected. I prepare some rough ideas, but I like to see what the flow is like and try to go with that. It can get boring for myself and the crowd rolling about with the same show.

ET: I’ve never seen him with the same set-up. I remember that time you came to a gig in Frankfurt with a backpack full of gear….

KM: What makes it difficult is that initially I was very much doing things just with analogue gear, and that was easy because I could play venues in Leipzig. It wouldn’t be a problem to get things around via car, but if you’re taking a plane, you’re worried about certain things, you’ve got to find ways to adapt. I do use a laptop for certain things. I’m not a …

…militant purist?

KM: Yeah I’m not a militant purist (laughs)…But who knows, I might change my mind. I might turn into one.

What have you got coming up release-wise?

KM: I’m working with my friend Lorenz, who also records as Mix Mup, on a new project. It’s not ambient, but it’s not dance either, it’s kind of weird. I don’t like to talk about things too much before they’re finished, as you never know what can happen. I do have another release on NonPlus coming. And a 7″ on Mikrodisko which is out very soon.

Even, what about you personally and for Workshop in general?

ET: I’m working on an album, which will be released in the near future as well as various remixes. We are working on major improvements at our mini-micro disco (hello Gunnar!) at our headquarters in Kleestadt. The strobe already works quite well! We’ve got Move D doing the next Workshop release. Then we’ve got a very old friend, who has some releases on Out To Lunch in the past, who is joining Workshop. I won’t give it away just yet but it’s going to be a very nice record and it’ll be out mid summer.

    This Article is nice, but we have to study deep……..

    Why do all the alien or ET’s or ufo’s pics r never clear, always having some kind of

    I want better pictures of the UFO.

    This seem very legit. I say that as a expert. I have had close encounters through out my life..and this video shows speeds of which we cannot achieve.

    magnificent points altogether, you simply gained a new reader.
    What would you suggest in regards to your post
    that you made some days ago? Any positive?

    HAHAHAH You must be kidding us with that second video-IT’S A BIRD,NOT UFO!!!

    Happy to see this, YourPost will be the bestin the world!!

    Everyone nowadays carries a cellphone with a camera.
    Yet no one thought of taking a picture?
    I first heard about a ufo flying over Ilinois ariport which I
    saw it on CNN it was on video.I thought wow.
    Neat little article about possibly the weirdest thing to ever happen in my hometown.
    I was in middle school at the time of the UFO sightings,
    and remember staying up late eyes glued to the skies for weeks, and never
    seeing a thing. My grandfather however worked for
    the state police and knew several of the police officers who were adamant that they had seen something they couldn’t
    explain. He also had a cousin who worked at the courthouse who also claimed
    that she had seen a UFO. From what I remember of her she was a very level-headed lady who worked as a clerk in county treasurer’s office.
    She was very much a deals-in-facts-and-numbers sort of person, not someone given to flights of fantasy.
    I’ve always hoped one day the whole mystery
    would be solved, and it’s nice to know the whole incident
    hasn’t been completely forgotten.
    One sentence about a prototype iPad and the rest of the article
    is trash, the whole thing is hearsay “oh we know someone who saw something” right, who doesn’t?

    I actually prefer that there are no pictures leaked. I thought the unveiling of the iPhone 4 would have been a little more
    spectacular had Jobs not had to say “So stop me if you’ve seen this before..”.
    Although, people did find that funny.
    It’s like a UFO sighting, wish there was a photo
    me thinks given the apparent rate of roll/banking, it
    looks exactly like an rc plane
    Well, It is clear enough to see any “Props” or propellers on it.
    Have not seen any jet powered RC aircraft around lately.
    i also have not seen any RC that has no vertical stabilizer, required
    on all aircraft except helicopters, for flight. Looks fairly authentic to me.
    been wrong before though.
    I’ve seen a triangle UFO before and this seems like it is very similar; obviously video quality is
    an issue, hard to pick up and focus on something moving quickly on a normal consumer cam but aside from what I assume
    is a focus issue (when it looks like you can see the top
    of it and it appears to be silver/grey) I can’t see anything that makes me believe this is fake.

    Ahhhh… So awesome !! So stoked that my bro is part of this
    epic trip!! Y’all fckin rock!! Cheers!!
    UFOs and aliens often create a display (like a spiral over Norway or even crop circles)
    to draw attention to their presence without actually coming out in the open.
    They would prefer the governments of the world to announce
    their existence rather than do it themselves (mainly to avoid a panic).
    It is the US military/intelligence community that does not want
    the truth about advanced aliens visiting from outer
    space to be revealed, since that would undermine US military and economic dominance of the world.

    This elaborate coverup has been going on for almost 60 years.

    it would be great if someone could coach these actors to produce facial expressions that would support the science…
    it would make the show much more interactive allowing
    the viewer to join in on the hunt for clues…
    In the snapshots where the character Martin is compared
    to Richard Ramirez and Ted Bundy, what does their facial expressions mean?

    I would also like to know what kind of information the expressions of Bundy and Ramirez portrayed.

    The expressions of Bundy and Ramirez could be a “duping delight”- a
    sense of happiness that they are getting away with someone.

    Ironically, the pictures that they showed during the show was at their trials, so
    why would they be happy after being convicted?

    When one reads the Bible, a broken spirit and a contrite heart God will not despise.
    One must believe God is he, odd (John 8:24). Satan is him,
    even strange. The earthly church is described as a woman, her, she,
    women, daughters, wife. She gives birth to religion, (Exodus
    34:15) a false god in the land (Leviticus 25:23). *Galatians 4:
    26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.* Synagogue
    Jews choose virgin Mary as their idol, what is the difference
    between a statue and the golden calf? (Luke 15:30). The heart of man is desperately wicked, the world
    is afraid of truth! *Luke 2:51*
    i saw this strange light in iran, like this picture!!

    Cool! I never would have thought I could take my dog with me to
    this place.
    I know I’ve seen break dancing robots from Japan
    before. Isn’t it the least we should expect?
    Don’t they realize how cool a break dancing robot on the moon would be?.

    This has happened several times in many countriesobjects that at first sight would
    have you thinking you’re watching just balloons but under closer inspection reveal interesting characteristics as described in this article, just
    search on youtube “ufo fleets” or “ufo flotillas” and you
    will see several cases, some even at night, there’s a video particularly intriguing, recorded in
    Mexico, it shows an object releasing spheres, very, very interesting…

    THere are not 3.. but 4 UFOs in the pic
    The triangle coincidence depends on where the observer is standing.
    Viewed 50 miles away, they might appear to be in a line or in no particular arrangement whatsoever.

    Please take me away!
    Hard to tell what it is, we used to let helium balloons
    with tin foil go up. When it is bright and the sun is rather low above
    the horizon you get effects like this.
    JL is correct, there are actually 4 points of light in the pic.
    The 4th is to the left of the antenna. The points of light seem to be equidistant from
    each other. These points of light were not the ony things seen
    and filmed at the time. H.E. Miller, please keep your skepticism to
    yourself and open your eyes.
    “the two in the middle are in direct line with each other.”{
    god forbid that anyone should do anything other than to blindly accept that this is an alien invasion…skepticism bad…blind faith good!

    Ok i live in Rochester NY and my whole family saw EXACTLY the same kind of lights in the
    sky at sunset but i couldn’t tell you exactly what day.
    We made all kinds of comments about what they might be….it was my 12 year old who said
    and i quote “better look around for the mother ship”
    Finally…I always knew this day would come. The years spent in solitude preparing, contemplating,
    devouring everything ever written about aliens, struggling to discern fact from fiction, the sit-ups and karate exercises, all that effort and energy spent gloriously validated.
    I was right. I WAS RIGHT!! AND I AM READY!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!
    The video was of very poor quality, another consistency with alleged UFO sightings.

    I believe they are as the school claims them to be: Balloons.
    You can say what you want, but until the evidence is provided otherwise that it’s not (With today’s
    digital technology available to ordinary consumers).
    Read the REAL story at:
    if its a balloon why its visible both in us and china
    Please tell us the danger of UFO`s over NY or anywhere compared to the Aliens from over the border?Over 11 millions Aliens in America that dont not belong here andy its big news to see more of nothing that has never harmed America.

    TRUTH: Why is it that it’s always the guy
    with the wrong camecorder taking the shot. Com’n….people it’s New York.
    There’s got to be a person with an Red One, DSLR ….
    something that can zoom all the way to it.
    From the video, the description in the story is BS.
    It wasn’t four UFO’s in a symmetrical formation.
    It was a cluster of white balloons, probably all set
    free at the same time. The picture above just happened to catch four in a “formation” which was merely chance.

    Hate to burst the UFO bubble (and I certainly think it is possible there are other
    life forms in the universe) but this was apparently 12
    shiny pearl colored balloons that escaped the hands of a woman with 4 dozen (then 3 dozen) for a surprise engagement party close to Manhattan.
    The wind carried them over the city…
    Hello Earthlings. We come in peace, as we have for thousands
    of years. Our interest in your planet is scientific research.
    We are preparing for contact with you soon. Please send your best
    representative, Kim Kardashian would do just fine
    They are clearly balloons. To see a few faint sunlit objects in the sky and immediately assume it’s otherworldly is grossly ignorant.
    I wish we weren’t alone as much as anyone, but we are. Grow up, this is NOT
    In the 45min? nobody thought to whip out a set of
    binoculars and nobody owns a telescope in that city? I guess doing so would KILL the BUZZ?

    We are a spec of dust in the overall cosmos.
    Yes, other life exsists “out there”.. but odds are, they have no intention of booking a spot on
    Jerry Springer anytime soon…
    Oh, hey Roland. Just wanted to let you know youre a complete idiot.
    Grab something to measure those balloons instead of your shitty eye and youll see that
    they are in no way in any sort of pattern. They coincidentally appear
    to be in a crude triangular shape. Any jackass with a brain can deduce that.
    And every video Ive seen shows that they are moving.

    Soooooo yeah…. Try some real reporting and stop wasting our time with
    this garbage.
    I watched 2 of these in the eastern sky 2 weeks ago.
    I live near Charlotte. This was in the evening just as it got dark.
    There were 2 bright stars where there shouldn’t be any.
    Then I watched them just fade away. They never moved from their position.

    It takes a while for the sun to set on objects at high altitude.
    They are seen to just fade away.
    Hey tucker was just wondering where your from actually, be honest of course?
    If you have actually witness these U.F.O? (unidentified Flying object)
    Man we know how balloons look in the sky. Why every time its the same
    cover up.
    I and my friend,were at a park in Colorado Springs on Labor Day 09/06/10, where there is an annual balloon fest;there were no hot air balloons anywhere around that day.The event had been cancelled.

    I think the reason there are fewer reports of faerie sightings
    is more due to the fact that reporting a ghost sighting is more acceptable.

    Even among a group of open minded people discussing the paranormal I’ve gotten patronizing reactions and pats on the head if I even hint about my many experiences.
    Seeing little people from the garden is somehow crazier than
    little green men from space
    This object was seen from Sinai which is almost 2200 KMs away.
    It is highly unlikely for a missile to be seen that far
    away so clearly. It may be man-made but it was not the Russian Topol ICBM.

    I don’t know what that was. More than likely man made.

    I am loving the boots and dress, i would rock that shit,
    I actually like this outfit.
    SHE IS A BAD BITCH !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Lol Lol Lol, The best part of this picture is the Dick Rider caption……..He is indees a Dick Rider and she does indeed have a DICK!!!!!!!

    Really?Okay.And yeah I like the outfit too.Shades,
    not so much. Too ~edgy~ for my old arse.

    .. the oddest thing .. I saw this in bristol, ct on
    feb. 3rd .. a few of them.. no noise.. but they did blink out and on ..
    so I guessed they are helicopters?
    Thank you for the video. Follow up article with the video
    will be posted soon.
    Man…acid trips are rough, huh?
    Nice post, Brain.
    Thanks, I’ve only been using it a couple of months,
    but fell instantly in love. As you may know, it’s perfect for
    fiction (built for it really) this was another way of using it.
    I hope it didn’t come across as “the autobiographer’s program.”
    There was some assumption going in that most readers were familiar with

    see if I could offer a discount, so it worked
    out that way. Thanks!
    to the Bible the world has been created in six days,but
    according to the Science this process has taken billions of years.If
    we exclude the difference in time and we pay attention to the SEQUENCE,we will
    see that there is no contradiction between both,but only the
    question-why in the Bible things happened so fast?There is an answer and it`s in the Bible
    itself.Moses described the Creation from his own sight as an eyewitness.Where
    and when he saw It,how could he have seen something happen before his existence?Answer:For forty days he has been at the mount Sinai where he got information about the past,present
    and future.The Creation had been REcreated to him in six days there,he had seen how the already existing world had
    been made.The long process of evolution had been shown to him in the first six days and the SEVENTH day had been
    dedicated to human`s appearing.After that he had seen the difference between Adam`s
    origin and Eve`s one.Adam comes from the dirt in the process of evolution,but Eve comes from DNA material
    out his body,which marks another jump for the evolution or
    in other words-the missing section of the chain which Science is looking for.The Creation continue and The
    Next Jump Is Coming…2012 ?!If I contacted to You by mistake and this is the wrong address,please make sure that you send me the correct e-mail or You can send that to
    the people who are interested on the subject.

    As much shit as Bill talk about the progression

    blowing smoke up our asses about being a positive pillar in the community.
    Well if grandfathering is the reason they must have
    one hell of a lot of labels in some warehouse, because I’ve
    seen Champagne’on Barefoot’s label as recently as last week.
    The term is always modified (as above); the stuff is not called simply Champagne.
    Korbel does the same thingtheir labels read California Champagne.’
    Hey, I recognize that picture!
    I think most people are aware that Champagne is a region and therefore not applicable to all
    sparkling wines. I see that Barefoot actually has the California Sparkling designation on the label (although less
    prominent than the Champagne). So maybe they’re trying
    to wean their consumers off of that designation… maybe not.

    However, if drinking sparkling white zinfandel is what it
    takes to get some consumers to try wine… then I’m all
    for it.
    Those who pay $8 for a “California Champagne” may assume that it is not from
    the Champagne region (or from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier).

    Karen’s comment brings us full circle back to the discussion
    on whether or not Roederer went overboard protecting the Cristal trademark.

    Protect it or lose it. It is not unreasonable for interested parties to
    pursue litigation in order to protect a name.

    This article was just referenced by the Champagne Bureau Facebook page as proof that
    “…over 50% of the sparkling wine sold in the U.S. is improperly labeled as “Champagne?”
    Woah! I’m really loving the theme.

    Being an alien abductee since childhood myself, I always find such tales riveting. Truth be told, I’d never heard of the Wood-Wright case, but look forward to seeing the film when it’s released. Take care guys, for all you know you may have hybrid kids somewhere who might come pay you a visit someday.
    Veru nice post
    Congratulations on two years of blogging. I am with you in your choice to include Sufjan Stevens to commence such a great event. Have you heard Damascus by Sufjan Stevens?
    Congrats on the two years.
    hi there, thank you so much for all your Sufjan posts !!! I have found some really great stuff here !!! THANKS !!
    Several UFO mentions here. I’ve pretty much never talked of possible UFO sightings I may have had. I was young, maybe 10ish. Everyone was asleep. I heard a slight strange sound outside and looked out the window. we were 2 -3 stories up. I saw something with many different color lights and an almost flat shape. It disappeared in seconds. Another time I saw a neon green glow zig zag and take off in the distance. My mother told me when I was an infant, during one trip her and my dad went on (with me) they were driving through the mountains (I believe it was West US). When they say they saw a UFO. I am more used to the Paranormal, ghost, spirits, angels, demons. My whole life I’ve been around those and have so many stories to tell. But, UFO’s. I find more difficult to comprehend, though the very knowledge of my soul tells me “you saw it, it exist”. also offers Dr. Dan on twitter as smartmedicine. Please let families know 90 days of rehab is available for only $399.
    I’ve got to hand it to you, you did a good job. The info is really appreciated.
    I saw something like that in Denver 2 years ago. It turned out to be a parachute troop that had flame packs on their backs.
