Henning Baer [DE]
As the resident DJ of Grounded Theory, one of its founders, curators and a DJ of worldwide renown for ability and tastes, Henning Baer forged his enviable résumé with his own hands.
Since its beginning in 2009, Grounded Theory has grown from a bracing new idea in Berlin
techno to an institution of artistic nightlife both at its home and around the continent. Mirroring Henning Baer’s DJ sets, Grounded Theory combines music from different eras and areas, remaining rooted in techno while shedding light on sounds less frequently heard on Berlin dance floors: forward UK music, experimental electronics, and underground techno names from across the globe, both new and established.
Already a respected artist, Henning’s diligence has transported him from the counter to the
shelves of Hardwax and from the floor to the booth of Berghain in regular appearances. Now he
is building further upon these impressive accomplishments, profoundly shaping contemporary
techno from recent memory into the foreseeable future.
