About this artist

Extrawelt are Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe, two musicians responsible for infusing minimal techno with a healthy dose of classic trance music. Originally known as Midi Miliz, the two began their recording careers with a series of trippy, technologic tracks for cyber-trance labels like Boshke Beats, but it was Extrawelt's 2005 single "Soopertrack," for James Holden's Border Community label, that granted them passage into Europe's electro-house and minimal-techno scenes. As demonstrated on a string of underground hits for Traum, Cocoon and Kompass Musik, Extrawelt specialize in fat, gripping anthems that combine minimal techno's precision percussion with the grandiose gestures of trance.
