Native Berliner Sascha Funke's warm take on tech-house is rather clean and very melodic, quite possibly catering to the Kompakt label's love for the term pop more than any of the other producers on the Cologne, Germany, label's roster.
Throughout 2000 and early 2001, Funke issued a trio of 12" singles on the label -- Campus, Safety First, and Drei Auf Drei. During the same period, Funke also released a pair of singles for Berlin's BPitch Control imprint -- Luftschloß and 2:1 Fur Die Liebe. Some of his productions for Kompakt have appeared on the Schaffelfieber, Total 2, and Total 3 compilations, but he wound up sticking with BPitch Control for several years, through 2003's Bravo, 2006's Boogybytes mix, and 2008's Mango. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
