Extrawelt

Extrawelt are Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Rabe, both coming from the Hamburg rural area. After enjoying electronic music more and more besides school, they became record collectors and DJs in the beginning of the nineties. Through that passion for vinyl, they also got to know each other much better. In 1998, countless gigs and several studio collaborations later, they conquered some borrowed equipment and a Mac, which lead to severe addiction within short time!

Many releases and live gigs worldwide followed, under various projects like "Midimiliz", "Spirallianz" or "The Delta" and "Downhill". All this prepared the way to 'Extrawelt'. Once arrived, they released the highly successful single "Soopertrack" and "Zu Fuß" on James Holden's label Border Community in May 2005, kicking off a matchless wave of success that lasts until today without ever being close to a gain sell-out-status in the scene. The readers of the two most renowned magazines for electronic music in Germany, 'Groove' and 'Raveline' voted their album "Schöne Neue Extrawelt" Best Album 2008; besides that, they also have been voted Best Live Act 2008 in 'Groove' magazine.

Their second album „In Aufruhr" came out in 2011 on Cocoon Recordings and was equally high acclaimed as their debut. Youtube clips of their tracks exceed the million clicks easily, their Facebook page likes are in the hundred thousands. Reader's poll of the „Faze", Germany's magazine with the highest circulation voted them again on the pole position in the category Best Live Act in 2014.

Extrawelt and FabFilter

"Our current favorites are FabFilter Pro-Q 2 with its innovative features and perfect sound."

"FabFilter Pro-L and Pro-MB are very powerful and much used, for example when we louden up and prepare our new and unmastered tracks for a live-set test. Also the creative plugs like Volcano and Saturn are often used to bring life to steril sounds. All over we regard FabFilter as pure quality."
