INTERVIEWS ► Henning Baer June 2016 - short interview by Heart Beat
with Henning Baer  just before the show at the Observatory. 
When did your “love Affair” with electronic Music begin and when you've got
consumed by the techno scene?
I got “infected” around the age of 13 and because of my 8 years older sister.
That was around 1996. She was listening Techno and had a DJ as boyfriend.
This is how the story began…
What’s your favorite place on earth you have visited or lived so far?
I’ve been to many places already. This is a very fortunate “side effect” of being a
travelling artist. A city I feel very attracted to is Los Angeles. I’ve been there now
three times. But there are many other great places I’ve been to and cannot really
name a “favorite” place.
What was one of your best gigs of this last 12 months?
This is impossible to say. There were many fantastic gigs but of course there are
also a few challenging gigs here and there. My latest Berghain gig on May15, 2016
was outstanding. This was definitely one of the top 5 in the last 12 months.
Is this June 2016 the first gig  and your first time in Vietnam ?
Yes it is and I am very excited about that… 
What is your expectation with Vietnam and is there something you would like to see,
eat or try when you are here?
I have no real expectation with Vietnam to be honest. South East Asia is a very popular
travel destination for Germans I think. Same goes for Thailand, Laos & Cambodia.
Many of my friends of people I know went or go. It was somehow never on my list
mainly because everyone else went. I don’t want to go where everyone else goes.
That’s my I never developed expectations about the region. But I want to
experience sometimes off the normal tourist things. Regarding food things are often
a bit difficult for me on the road as my diet is more or less 100% animal free.
What was your drive to start your new label MANHIGH? 
Independency. Even more than I have already. I want to run a label completely alone
for the most possible freedom possible. But also to have a platform to release music
quicker than releasing it on other labels where you have to deal with longer schedules.
And/ or which artist would you like to see release on MANHIGH?
Artists and music I like. I want to be able to discover and give those people a platform
to express. For the third release I’ve signed Matrixxman, an artist I respect a lot.
Are there any aliases you have released under? Can you name an example of one,
including the name of the production?
I’ve release a record under the alias “Stallion” in 2012 but other than that I kept it up
to my real name.
Since you haven’t sit still performing & production wise, we are extremely happy you've  decided to tour in Asia and also SE Asia. First Taiwan, then Japan and then Vietnam. All very different from each other which will make it a very nice experience for you.
Now the question: Will there be an album coming out soon?
As I’ve never released an album I think it is time to think about one. Indeed.
The format attracts me a lot…
 And would you release this on MANHIGH or maybe somewhere else?
… and MANHIGH would be the perfect platform for it I think! [~18 months later
Shatter Proof was born, 11 tracks Album on Manhigh]
Last one! Would you be willing to share one of your favorite productions you are listening  to at the moment and one of your favorite (techno) productions of all time?
Recently I am enjoying Lucy’s new album on Stroboscopic Artefacts a lot. It’s a great piece of art! One of my favorite productions if this one:
Jiri Ceiver - Osiac (Vogels Funky Sola Mix) 
iri Ceiver - Osiac (Vogels Funky Sola Mix) (Osiac)
