Eddie Zarook and Casio Casino (aka Steffan Neuert) have been quietly plying their particular brand of minimal house, techno and electronic trickery at the UV club in Heidelberg for a good, few years now. What struck me on my first visit there was the extraordinary vibe running through the diverse, expectant crowd – it’s been a long time since i’ve seen people actually dancing into a club.If you heard their 2005’s debut release Haluzengenic / The Gap on LoFi Stereo then you already know what the fuss is about. Their first outing on Gumption includes two more tracks – 6ft Under / was - that also achieve the difficult task of inducing dancefloor mayhem while remaining credible pieces of electronic music. It’s a successful fusion that will continue to bare fruit in the future and is no doubt the result of their previous musical incarnations.Steffen’s involvement with electronic production didn’t start until he arrived in Heidelberg 13 years ago. At the time he was immersed in the indie scene and was far from impressed with the state of German techno. However Dirk Mantei, the owner of his local record store slowly turned him on to a better sound and the purchase of studio equipment including a (now sadly defunkt) Roland R8 also helped shape a new musical perspective. Since then, collaborations with fellow Heidelberger Lopazz have been a constant feature of his career along with the ground-breaking project Bergheim 34, through which Steffen successfully managed to meld his love of Krautrock and Detroit minimal techno, presenting electronic music in a live band context, long before the more recent, cliched attempts of today’s electro clashers. Around the same time, Eddie was starting out on his own musical journey that initially embraced those 'gods of rock’ Led Zep and Hendrix. After relocating to Germany from Iran in 1989, he studied guitar, eventually graduating with flying colours from music school in Cologne. He settled in Heidelberg in 1998 and a year later his growing fascination with electronic music prompted him to start Djing.Typically, the pair first met in the Vinyl Only record store in 1999 where their shared love of techno classics, especially the minimal sound, led to the idea to start producing together. Their energy was such that, almost immediately, the UV club was born and it’s a tribute to their belief and enthusiasm that the club is still rocking packed crowds seven years later.
