Michael Knead

Michael was born in Southern Germany in 1979. He enjoyed a thorough education in classical music and from an early age music became a central part of this life. In the 90’s he developed a deep interest in electronic music, right at the point when the genre became popular but was still uncharted territory. During this period Michael worked as a DJ and gained his first experiences of performing on stage.

In 2010, as a natural progression, Michael became a music producer and has enjoyed some early success with his productions. Since 2013, his technological and acoustic knowledge has resulted in opening his own mastering service. Around the same time Michael started to focus on playing electronic music live – in a similar fashion a Jazz musician does.

His signature sound is created using Samples, Drumcomputers and field recordings seamlessly interwoven with the sound of Hardware Synthesizers and other instruments played by hand. Michael creates open minded electronic music with a very human touch. His tracks and performances fit best into these genres: Electronica, Minimal House, IDM and Chillout Music. He also collaborates with musicians and artists from different fields.

Free Music

Michael Knead offers some free work on his website. Amongst others he produced an electronic song named "Springtime Rain" which he decided to self-publish as a promotion. He then entered a collaboration with different artists around the globe who contributed very different sounding remixes of this song in order to form a remix album. All of this can be downloaded free of charge on Michael's website. Please make sure you give the appropriate credit if you want to use any of this material and we're always happy to hear from you if you do so.
