Roman Flügel is perhaps best known as one half of Alter Ego, whose 2004 single ‘Rocker’ was one of the biggest tunes to emerge from the post-electroclash diaspora.
In a career dating back to ’94, Flügel has done it all – helped shape the fate of acid and techno with various releases on the legendary Harthouse label, pretty much invented electro-house, scored a colossal solo club hit in the shape of ‘Geht’s Noch’ (2004), made futuristic jazz with Christopher Dell on the excellent Superstructure (2005) and ambient-leaning micro-house as Soylent Green. Along the way he’s been invited to remix artists like Matthew Dear, Daft Punk, Primal Scream and even Kylie Monogue. Most recently he released the fine Stricher EP.
Oh, and did we mention he’s an incredible DJ? With over 15 years of experience behind him, Flügel has cultivated his own distinctive, bass-heavy style, with a strong disco influence of late, and he showcases it to great effect on this here FACT Mix. Kicking off with Rub N Tug’s euphoric edit of Capracara’s ‘King of Witches’, this rollicking selection takes in productions from the likes of Pepe Bradock, DJ Koze and Flugel himself.
