Cuckoo Music Presents a one off special event. A rare night of underground electronic music, involving two integral producers of the Berlin techno scene. Tom Clark and Guido Schneider. For Tom Clark this will be his second visit to Cuckoo, after playing a sellout show in 2009 he is amped to get back behind the decks and flog Cuckoo’s Funktion 1 system! Guido on the other hand has never toured Australia before, quite surprising considering his consistent release schedule over the last 10 years, with a number of his tunes circa ’06 becoming late night underground club classics. This will be a rare opportunity for lovers of Techno, Minimal, and House to be immersed by two old hands of the sound. Not to be missed.

Tom Clark is an original native of the city that is sometimes too often referred to as the capital of techno, Berlin. Unimpressed by the hype, Tom’s label Highgrade is not only an integral part of Berlin’s success story but also stands for the fresh and new sound of the city. Tom’s own releases and DJ sets have been detonating on the dance floors of the city and the rest of the world for a decade now.
His DJ sets have become synonymous for intense, diverse and suspenseful club nights. His style varies from minimal deep tech/house, Detroit Techno, Electro and House. So naturally producing his own music was just a matter of time. Next to producing his own music he also does remixes for International top acts and has been featured on various imprints. His first album “King Tide” was released on the Swiss Minimal House label Morris/Audio. He has since released various Maxi’s on Morris/Audio and other labels. His second album “Service Station” was released on Highgrade in 2006. Although being extremely busy with his label and club work he has still found the time to finish his third album “Pressure Points” An album which shows his musical development.
Guido Schneider founded his own Label “Neue Welten“ in 1995 based in Celle, Germany. In 1996 he moved to Berlin where he began to fully focus on music. His productions and co-productions (e.g. as “Schneider & Radecki“ with Sammy Dee) always sounded sort of minimal, but were also exceptionally functional as he dared to stick his head out of his soundlab at an early stage. This together with the experiences from various live performances helped to perfect his tracks.
Changes marked the beginning of the new millennium: Guido closed down his label “Neue Welten” and met vocalist Florian Schirmacher. After the first joint studio sessions it became obvious that Guido‘s production and Florian‘s vocal skills would complement each other perfectly and together they founded the project Glowing Glisses, which under the pseudonym they released 3 singles and the album “Silver Surfer“ on Poker Flat.
In 2002 Guido and Glowing Glisses joined Steve Bug, Märtini Brös and Martin Landsky on the Poker Flat World Tour. Back in Germany, highly inspired, Guido began focusing on his solo project “Guido Schneider“. His first Poker Flat single “Triple Bolted“ (pfr35) and the track “Moved“ showed Guido’s huge potential.
Two 12“s followed in 2004: “Unterwegs mit Guido Schneider“ (pfr47, including a fantastic remake of “Moved“) and “Oh My Buffer“ (pfr53). These two 12“s finally put Guido on the map of internationally acclaimed producers. Guido was also Steve Bug‘s first choice to remix his unstoppable classic “Loverboy“ for Poker Flat‘s 50th anniversary release. With his remix of B.’s “Minikool” he ended an extremely successful year 2004. In 2005 Guido first contributed the exclusive track ”Las Cuerdas de Las Canarias” to the “Poker Flat Volume Four“ album, alongside artists such as Steve Bug, Donnacha Costello, Argy and Jeff Samuel.
Recently, Gudio joined forces with his old friend Sammy Dee (Pantytec) again, with whom he had worked years ago as Schneider & Radecki. The result of this reunion was the Clubcharts and Dancefloors ruling Poker Flat 12” “Styleways” (pfr63), which also was licensed to Richie Hawtin’s „Transitions“ album (Mute).
