Recondite is the alias of Bavarian-born, Berlin-based electronic music producer and label owner Lorenz Brunner. In 2011, he founded Plangent Records and released his first EP as Recondite. That same year he played his first gig at Berlin's legendary Panorama Bar/Berghain venue and began touring.
Recondite's first full-length, On Acid, was released in 2012 and garnered praise from critics around the world. Ghostly International released his follow-up, 2013's Hinterland. Soon after, Recondite became a fixture on the global DJ circuit, performing across Europe, Australia, North America, and Asia. In 2014, he released the Iffy LP on Innervisions and the Caldera EP on Hotflush Recordings. His newest full-length, Placid, was just released November 6, 2015 via Acid Test.
A longtime hip hop fan, Brunner kicks off his "What's in My Bag?" appearance with the 1992 self-titled debut from Body Count, the heavy metal band fronted by Ice-T. Next up is Nate Dogg's Music & Me and the Wu-Tang Clan's classic Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). He also shares the artist he considers to be the most influential techno and house producer in Germany today.
