Our first album will be out on 28.10.21:
format: 2x12“ Vinyl / Digital
After a string of seminal club 12”s over the course of
two decades, and in the midst of two successful solo
careers, MMM finally release their first album. Erik
Wiegand is the critically- acclaimed, PAN-affiliated
Errorsmith and creator of Native Instrument’s Razor synth;
Michael Fiedler is Berghain resident DJ Fiedel, as well as
label head, producer, and co-founder of the legendary Wax
Treatment party. While, as Messe der Meister von Morgen,
the Berlin-based duo are known and beloved as a rave act
providing the utmost energy, On the Edge shows their more
tender side with the depth and emotional complexity
befitting the sustained passion for and experience in
music the project shares.
MMM is the collaboration of Errorsmith and Fiedel.
Since 1996 they release their takes on dance music. They
produced underground club hits like the disco-techno
and the rave infused 'Nous
sommes MMM' but also experimental club tracks like 'J-Beez'
2021 sees the release of their debut album 'On the Edge',
showing their more tender side with music which is at the
same time meditative and loaded with emotional tension.
Fiedel is a resident DJ at Berghain, releases solo work
on his label Fiedelone
and collaborations on Fiedeltwo.
He is also a co-founder of the Wax Treatment party in
Errorsmith is known for his synthesis driven solo releases
as well as for RAZOR,
a synthesizer he developed for native instruments.
Together with Soundhack aka Soundstream he is Smith n Hack.
They all release on their own label with the support of
the Hard Wax record
store in Berlin.
The track 'Donna' from their second 12“ single became a techno classic. This timeless disco-techno hybrid is still played out today, appeared on countless mix-cds made by DJ Hell to Boys Noize and causes ecstatic youtube comments to this day. So it's no wonder that MMM has to meet from time to time to stamp the repressed records (stamp=artwork).
After the first two releases MMM took a longer break. Errorsmith released music under his solo name and started Smith n Hack with befriended Soundhack. Fiedel continued to dj. Today he is one of the resident Djs of the Berghain club in Berlin and is represented by its in-house 'Ostgut' booking agency.
The long cherished plan to make music together again was finally realised in 2007. They released 'touch and go' on the 'Anniversary EP' released by Soundhack and MMM together to celebrate 10 years of existence.
In 2010 MMM released their forth 12" containing 'Nous sommes MMM' and ''Let's git it on'. 'Nous sommes MMM' was one of the biggest underground techno hits that year, played out by Boys Noize, Dj Hell, Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos, Optimo and Jackmaster just to name a few.
In may 2011 MMM started a series of soca, dancehall and uk funky inspired releases. The first features the tracks 'Dex' and 'Rio'. 'Dex' was used as a background track on a scene of the British TV series 'Skins'.
MMM haven't done any remixes yet. This changed in 2012. They remixed a track by the south african band Shangaan Electro for the Honest jon's label in London. Next was a remix of 'XTC' by Boys Noize on Boysnoize records.
The small latin and bass influenced series continued in
spring 2013 with the release of MMM 6,
Barbaro' a track for the dancefloors of this planet
with disco guitar riffs and heavy bass submission over a
soca beat. 'Casio
Dub' is more relaxed and features a dub version of a
sequence of 'Casiotone' which was originally released on
the 'Anniversary E.P'.
The following years MMM worked on their first Album
titled 'On the Edge' which comes out in october 2021.
Style wise the focus has shifted for this release. Its
music has a meditative feel, loaded with emotional
complexity and a tension on the edge of collapse.
Like most productions of Fiedel, Errorsmith, Soundhack, Soundstream and Smith n Hack, all MMM tracks are released by the artist himself instead of a label to assure the most possible artistic and financial independancy. This is possible through the support of Hard Wax, a Berlin based record store, which is the distributor of all their releases. Digital formats of their music are available at Hard Wax too, as well as all major music download shops and streaming services.
