Swiss-born and Berlin-based Rob Insinna, aka Headman, has been consistently treading the line between punk-funk, disco and proto-house since launching his label Relish in 2001, a contemporary of Output and DFA.
With four albums under his belt, collaborations with the likes of Soulwax, The Rapture and Yello main man Dieter Meier, and remixes for the likes of Tiga and Annie, he’s undoubtedly helped shape today's musical landscape. His 'slow mix' podcast begins by delving into his more cosmic records, building towards classic house flavours and ending on the sound of the inimitable Sparks, proving him a master of spanning decades of dance.
Headman's new single 'Be Loved' is released on 21st November on Relish Recordings.
