Info 

Philipp Lauer is a producer, musician and DJ based in Frankfurt. He performs as Lauer and also as one part in Tuff City Kids with Gerd Janson.
Raised on a strict diet of hip hop & punk rock, Philipp finally succumbed to the pleasures of electronic music in the late nineties when he started to produce deep house tracks.
One of his most successful projects in the early 2000 years was Arto Mwambe with Christian Beißwenger (AKA CB Funk, TCB). During that time Philipp founded his own label Brontosaurus and they played many live shows all around the globe.
His debut solo album "Phillips" was released in spring 2012 on Running Back, followed by "Borndom" 2015 on Permanent Vacation.
In 2013 he started to get serious with Gerd Janson: as Tuff City Kids they put out one release after the next and started to play shows together.

Lauer readies new album for Permanent Vacation

Lauer readies new album for Permanent Vacation
25.03.2015

Frankfurt producer and Tuff City Kids member Lauer will drop his second full-length album in May.

Longstanding Frankfurt producer (and, as half of the Tuff City Kids outfit, a frequent Gerd Janson collaborator) Phillip Lauer (or simply just Lauer) will issue his second full-length album, Borndom, in the coming months.
The 13-track record follows behind Lauer's impressive string of releases dating back to the early aughts for labels such as Running Back, Beats in Space, and the imprint which will release his forthcoming LP, Permanent Vacation, among others. With a style "rooted in pop music and mixed with the reactance and sound aesthetics of punk, while wearing dancing shoes," Lauer's Borndom LP promises to be a melodically rich affair that seeks out many different paths to the dancefloor.

Ahead of the album's May 8 release date, Permanent Vacation has let loose a full stream of LP cut "ESC," a new wave-indebted cut flush with classic synth tones and thick vocal layers from Jasnau. The tune can be streamed in full below, where the complete tracklist for Lauer's Borndom LP has also been included.

LARJ takes Lifesaver 2 on the road

LARJ takes Lifesaver 2 on the road
17.02.2015

Most of the label's core roster will be representing at a series of European showcases in the coming months.

Sixteen dates in support of Live At Robert Johnson's forthcoming Lifesaver 2 compilation have been announced.

The tour will see a rotating cast of the Frankfurt label's core artists touch down for slots in the UK, France, Paris, Netherlands, Spain and more. Naturally, things get underway on home turf, with Ata, Orson Wells and Massimiliano Pagliara playing at Robert Johnson on March 7th. The same night, Roman Flügel, Gerd Janson and Oliver Hafenbauer play at Bristol's Just Jack. The following weekends include dates with Portable in Stockholm (21st), Lyon with Tuff City Kids (27th) and Jena with Ata (28th).

Four dates are lined up for April. Paris's Djoon club hosts Ata and Lauer on the 17th, after which Hafenbauer and Benedikt Frey head to Golem in Hamburg on the 24th. Dates at Barcelona venue Nitsa on the 25th and Passage 46 in Freiburg, Germany, on the 30th round out the month: Ata, Lauer and Frey play the former, while The Citizen's Band, Hafenbauer and Holger Wuest soundtrack the latter.

May is the tour's biggest month, with seven dates are confirmed so far. Highlights include stops at Zukunft in Zürich with Ata, Lauer and Hafenbauer on the 9th, Berlin's Panorama Bar on the 15th with Ata and Flügel, and fabric on the 16th with Flügel and Portable. Other stops include Cologne (8th), Oslo (22nd), Amsterdam (23rd) and Munich (29th).

Smallville turns nine with parties in Berlin and Hamburg

Smallville turns nine with parties in Berlin and Hamburg
01.05.2014

Smallville will celebrate nine years with parties in Berlin and Hamburg next month.

With its status as one of one of Germany's best-known deep house imprints, it's easy to forget that Smallville's origins are in a Hamburg record store (the label didn't come along until 2006.) The upcoming celebrations will commemorate the store's nine years of operation, and will take place in Berlin and Hamburg on May 3rd and 9th, respectively. The Berlin leg will go down across Stattbad in conjunction with local promoter Odd Fantastic, with Keith Worthy, Phillip Lauer and Smallpeople in one room, and Morphosis, Helena Hauff and Fiedel in the other. The Hamburg session will take place at Mojo, and feature a live set from Genius of Time and DJ appearances from hometown favourites Lawrence and Smallpeople.

New mix from Lauer
04.04.2014

"We met Phillip Lauer two years ago in the heart of the red-light district in Frankfurt, the Bahnhofsviertel. It was a night to remember. Lauer played alongside Robert Johnson's Ata in a small club called Lido. The last track he put on was the singalong-classic "Die Erde wird der schönste Platz im All" by the Berlin band Mutter. Truth poured out of the speakers. The next day, the two of us would do the silliest interview the city of Frankfurt had ever heard. Lauer, of course, is the "melody man" known to us as one half of Tuff City Kids and Arto Mwambe. He delivered a gorgeous mix for us. And we did another silly interview with him."
