Always working, building, never stopping, never sleeping... up next, NCM is proud to present special guest producer/DJ Lars Behrenroth from Los Angeles at the next NiteLite party on May 17th.

I've been communicating with Lars online for years now, back when he was doing a radio show called House Sound of Hamburg (in Germany). From a distance I've watched his DJ, radio and production career steadily accelerate. What I love about him is that you instantly know that he does it for the love of music and that music is his true calling in life. Lars has moved and grooved crowds in clubs all over the world such as DEEP (LA), Club Five and Red (D.C.), Motorlounge (Detroit), Distillery (Leipzig, Germany), Queens (Paris, France) and many many more. With a who's who list of guest DJ's, his 4 year and running syndicated XM Radio program 'Deeper Shades of House' (DeeperShades.net) educates and illuminates while showcasing his own versatile but selective musical range; he can play any genre within dance/electronic/house music while still keeping it deep. It is the way he programs his sets and puts songs together that stand him apart from the rest.

Behrenroth also has impressive discography over a variety of labels including Chez Music, Deep4Life, Compost, Sonar Kollektiv and most recently Liebe*Detail.  He has remixed artists such as Kathy Brown, The Rurals, Deep Swing, Dubtribe, MJ Cole, Slope, Arnold Jarvis, Sven Weisemann and more. In 2008 we'll see his remixes coming out on Liebe*Detail Spezial, Ocha Records and on his own new label Deeper Shades Recordings. This Summer he joins the ranks of label mates Jimpster, Milton Jackson & Trevor Loveys with a stellar release on Freerange Records UK titled "Ice On The Sun" with remixes by the infamous Charles Webster and Atjazz.

I'm happy we've been able to make his visit to SLC possible after years of scheming. Mark your calendars for another night of underground dance perfection and thank you again for being part of the 'Movement'.

See Lars's extended biography/ discography in the post continuation...

The story begins in Cuxhaven, Germany with organ lessons at an early age, spinning records at local dance school parties to enjoying people dancing to his music all around the world and back to Los Angeles where he relocated in April 2004.

While in Hamburg, Germany he attended audio engineering school where he completed his first remix projects in 1996. That very same year, Lars began co-hosting "House Sound of Hamburg" (HSH) on a local radio station. In 1998 he successfully brought the exclusive mix show to Evosonic Radio, a European-wide electronic and dance music radio station. The weekly three-hour house music mix show was a big hit and hosted guest DJs such as Deep Swing, Mateo & Matos, Paul Johnson, and DJ Pierre to name a few. The show went on to syndicate on the New York underground on-line radio station, Streetsound, as well as "CyberRadio & CyberRadio TV", the first German internet-broadcasting station which he launched, programmed, managed and along with Constantin Groll hosted the longest house music mix show on the net, "GlobalHouseConnection" (GHC), an 8-hour Saturday night marathon.

His current show, "Deeper Shades of House" can be heard twice a week nationwide in the US & Canada on XM Satellite Radio, THE MOVE (Channel 80), AOL Radio & DirecTV, is syndicated on Dinamo FM - Turkey, PushFM, CyberJamz, Play.fm, Netmusique.com and is available as a free podcast.

Deeper Shades of House is a weekly showcase of Lars’ versatile but selective musical range; he can play any genre within house music while still keeping it deep. It’s the way he programs his sets and puts the songs together that make him stand apart from the rest.

As a producer Lars Behrenroth has accumulated an impressive discography on labels such as Chez Music, Deep4Life, Compost, Liebe*Detail, Progcity Deep Trax and has remixed artists Kathy Brown, The Rurals, Deep Swing, Dubtribe, MJ Cole, Alma Horton, Slope, Q-Burns Abstract Message feat. Lisa Shaw, Arnold Jarvis and more.

In 2008 Lars is going full force with hot remixes on Liebe*Detail Spezial, Ocha Records, his debut EP on Freerange and the launch of his own label Deeper Shades Recordings.
