Music Montag: Pan-Pot
by James Glazebrook
The new compilation from Berlin-based DJ/production team Pan-Pot comes complete with an hour-long documentary… HEY, WAKE UP! The film skips over the usual pitfalls of melodrama (Berlin Calling), hysteria (It’s All Gone Pete Tong) and tediousness (everything else about dance music, ever), mainly because its protagonists are so likeable.
The duo, who take their name from a piece of studio tech, infect the viewer with their endless enthusiasm for their work and the places it takes them. The fact that one of them overcame a crippling fear of flying to appear at global bookings, that they still get nerves (especially just before a gig supporting permatanned technosaur Sven Väth in Ibiza), and that they never fail to be delighted by things like the giant fireworks display that accompanied their (indoor!) NYE date, makes Pan-Pot an endearing and enthralling subject. The compilation’s not bad either!
Mobilee Back to Back Vol. Six, Presented by Pan-Pot (including “The Documentary”), is out on Monday 26th March on Mobilee Records.
