"Über mehrere Monde auf eigenen irren Wegen unterwegs, haben sich ihre dunkelsten Winkel in einem neuen bildgewaltigen Digitalalbum getroffen: «Schiiwerfer» - visuell inszeniert von der !Mediengruppe Bitnik - ist ein postapokalyptischer Trip übers Durchdrehen in und ausserhalb unserer Städte und deren Gated Communities, ist eine Blendgranate auf die Dramen des Jetzt gedonnert, der Himmel leuchtet violett, alles brennt ab - da macht auch das Codein in der Biosuppe die Welt nicht besser."

About

Marcel Gschwend aka Bit-Tuner, born 1978 in St. Gallen, lives and works in Zürich, Switzerland

Born and raised in St.Gallen, Bit-Tuner works and lives in Zürich today. He's been producing electronic music with computers, mpcs, synthesizers, bass guitars and a fleet of analogue effect gear. He has a fondness for samples from old records, movies and has also been discovering field recording. Bit-Tuner works with heavy beats, blown up bass sounds, gloomy athmospheres, acid-driven melodies and uproaring soundscapes. His musical field of expression reaches from Experimental Hip-Hop to Electronica, from Bass Music to Noise, Theatre Productions, Fashion Shows and Shortfilm Soundtracks. 

Bit-Tuner has collaborated with various artists like Dani Göldin (Göldin & Bit-tuner), !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Audio88 & Yassin (Berlin), IOKOI (-OUS), Bleubird (Florida) or Sensational (WordSound/NYC).

Remixes: Oddateee (Deadverse Rec.), Sole (Ex-Anticon), Filewile, Tim & Puma Mimi, Kamikaze (Mouthwatering Rec.), Jeans for Jesus, Velvet Two Stripes, ... 

In his energy-driven concerts, Bit-Tuner oscillates between Downbeats, Electronica and Techno, while he pulls his tracks together to become a gloomy, but still euphoric bass monster. Live he has shared the stages with Acts like Kelpe, Jon Hopkins, Otto von Schirach, Ben Frost, Jimi Tenor, Modeselektor, Shackleton, Actress, The Haxan Cloak, Zomby, …

Quotes:

"Bit-Tuner is the master of booming basswalls and sweeping noises"
- 20minuten

"Lowrider bass sounds and angry distortions drive the St.Gallen born producer Bit-Tuner further. His apocalyptic acid-dub-adventures make the dancing crowd's heads nod, while they enter the heart of electronic darkness more and more - and they tesitfy the state of the art quality that the electronic musician recently reached with his exceptional "Drome EP"."
- m4music

"A wild demonstration of hybrid, urban, electronic music" 
- Xavière Sennac for Bad Bonn Kilbi / Case à Chocs

"Pretty much the best of what Swiss live electronics have to offer. "
- Christoph Linder / DJ Fett / Planet Rock Booking

"Bit-Tuner is a master of electronic sound architecture."
- St. Galler Tagblatt

"Regardless of the multitude of genres I could throw in here, there is no denying that there is an
undercurrent of sound here at he makes all his own; and that has to be applauded."
- Tony Young, Review on blackaudio
