of the reasons of panacea´s success is his leading idea of the
anti-principle. against all rules and musical classifications he invents
his own revolutionary style out of drum 'n' bass, industrial, death-metal,
speedcore, techno, breakbeats and rave: techstep-punk is the keyword!
the unique artist is known and performing all around the world in
countries like the states, canada, japan, brasil, taiwan and of course
all over europe. he
worked with labels like position chrome/force inc. in germany, ant-zen
and hands productions, caipirinha and industrial strenght in the states
and also contributed one of the wellknown john peel-sessions. mathis
mootz is known for being "the hardest man in drum 'n' bass"
and just sold 5000 records of his latest lp "german engineering"
on position chrome in the first two weeks. the label itself is one
of germany´s leading and best-selling drum 'n' bass-imprints
and was nominated by london´s "knowledge"-mag for
the best international drum 'n' bass-label. in april 2001 panacea
has dropped his new split-lp named "the hardest tour on planet
earth" after the successful tour he played last year with label-mate
cativo, who also recorded 5 tracks for
the cd. performing live, panacea unveils diabolic forces to move the
crowd and push the audience to the boundaries. it´s hard to
explain to people who never saw him playing but his energetic and
charismatic habit of a real superstar is able to really touch people
and cure the harmed souls!
