Drumcomplex – The Mass Movement Phenomenon

Drumcomplex aka Arnd Reichow has been one of Germany’s most dedicated techno suppliers since the late 90s. With two and a half decades of music experience under his belt, he has been crafting his own complex space within the techno industry. Arnd’s choice of monikers defines his vision of music: techno is a quintessentially complex matter, amounting to diverse layers that combine to form a universe of its own. On the one hand, there is the craftsmanship that comes with applying and enhancing your skills over hours upon hours of studio work, evident when looking at Drumcomplex’s discography with releases throughout the years on seminal labels such as Carl Cox’s Intec Digital, Monika Kruse’s Terminal M or Andre Crom’s OFF Recordings. Complementing the fruits of studio labor, and, arguably, a litmus test of any piece of sound escapism, is the dance floor duty. And Drumcomplex has arduously served his floor time, keeping up a constant schedule of gigs across the globe. Recent highlights include Carl Cox’s prestigious last Revolution Party at the infamous Space Ibiza and the legendary Awakenings Festival in Amsterdam’s beloved Gashouder.

Since 2014, the DJ and producer runs the label Complexed Records with releases by the likes of Kevin De Vries, Alexander Kowalski, Dr. Motte and Tom Wax and of course the label head himself. Fast-forward 8 years and over 100 releases, Arnd is now running three labels, with XLR8 Kleve’s KXLR8 and newborn DCMX Records, focused mainly on dark and minimalistic singles by Drumcomplex himself.

And the BPM never stops: Arnd’s weekly Drumcomplexed Radio Show is broadcasted worldwide, airing on over 50 radio stations and all major streaming platforms, while with his DJ appearances he continues to entice techno crowds across the globe.
