RECENT PRESS
A recent podcast is available via Data Transmission. Iron Curtis also caught up with The Ransom Note for some studio talk and he shared his first ever recording of a Live Set (recorded at Berlin's Prince Charles).

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Iron Curtis’ pieces originate in a place simultaneously tuned to the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and Hamburg. In his home town of Nurnberg, Johannes Paluka is more familiarly known under his surname, which he goes by at the turntable. Intertwining Deep-House with soulful Techno in a disturbingly enchanting manner, his sound moves in the equilibrium of reduced, but never minimal. Flashes of kitsch brighten the dark universe of Iron Curtis, but fail to interfere with the melancholy subtext. Profound music for the dance floor! He is currently living in Berlin and releasing for Mirau, Morris Audio, JackOff, Retreat, and Mule Electronic.

NEWS
After the release of Achterbahn D'Amour's first LP 'Odd Movements' for L.A. based Acid Test imprint in early 2014, Iron Curtis spent quite some time on the road - including his first appearances in Brazil and a string of European gigs, as DJ and Live-act. Now he's back in the studio working on solo material, both for upcoming 12"s and a new solo LP.

Together with mates Session Victim, Quarion, Kim Brown and others he contributed to the fifth edition of his homebase Retreat's 'Treats' compilation. Iron Curtis also teamed up with longtime buddy Leaves for a solo EP and remixes under their SMPL moniker 'Hello Ada' EP on Black Keys Recordings.

Also out now are remixes for J.E.E.P's 'Answering Machine' on Carry On, and for Inkswell on Burek.
