Justus Kohncke - 2 After 909
Extending his voracious musical appetite for all things avant-garde, pop, and dance into his own output, German producer Justus Kohncke has flirted with the charts (as one third of Whirlpool Productions, who had a hit in their homeland with "From Disco to Disco"), covered Janis Ian and Marvin Hamlisch, and has released material on the Kompakt label. Kohncke began releasing solo material in 1999 with Spiralen der Erinnerung (Spirals of Memory), an album that consisted solely of covers. Two years later, Kohncke joined up with Kompakt and released two singles between 2001 and 2002 (Jet and 2 After 99) and two albums 'Was Ist Musik?' and 'Doppelleben'.
