Gerhard Potuznik! This man is part of the first generation of important electronic musicians in Austria. A former DRAHDIWABERL roadie, he released several records together with PATRICK PULSINGER and ERDEM TUNAKAN under the monicker iO on the newborn label CHEAP RECORDS at the beginning of the nineties.
Together they produced Patrick Pulsinger’s legendary debut album „Porno“ (1994). He had several projects with HANS PLATZGUMER (H.P. ZINKER), among others CUBE & SPHERE, and has published records using various names like GD LUXXE, POTUZNIK or THE HAPPY SUN on labes like MEGO, CHEAP, DISKO B, MO‘ WAX, NOISE APPEAL or BREAKIN‘ RECORDS. At the end of the nineties he co-founded an own label (‘ ANGELIKA KÖHLERMANN ‘) with TEX RUBINOWITZ. With the latter, as well as PHILIPP QUEHENBERGER and DIDI KERN he plays in the electronic rock’n’roll band MÄUSE. Apart from making music, Potuznik is also a producer. His most renowned work is with feminist electroclash collective CHICKS ON SPEED from Munich.
Gerhard Potuznik was sound consultant on the new PHAL:ANGST album „Whiteout“, so his contribution of a remix is consequential. His track takes an avant garde hypnotic dark pop angle between TWIN PEAKS and intriguing synth-hooks reminiscent of dark eighties sounds like DEPECHE MODE or THE CURE. Compared to the original track, this one is catchier, more danceable and fatter.
