Rico Puestel is a versatile musician and instrumentalist, genuine producer, DJ, live act and avocational musicologist from Northern Germany who started producing and DJ'ing at the age of 10. Over the years, he published massive quantities of multifaceted productions worldwide and is well known for his contemporary anthology of edits and original releases on labels like SOSO, Pimprinella and Lordag, his own imprint Ponsactrilau and compilation/mix-appearances on Trapez, Get Physical or Fabric. His most salient aspiration - regarding own productions and performances - unifies the balanced concept of constructive musicality and intrinsic depth, ranging in climes of House with steadily present nuances of Techno.
TO COME TO TERMS WITH THE PAST: Rico Puestel was born in 1986 and has been raised in a small rural German town in Lower-Saxony. While attending primary school, he started taking first piano lessons and slipped off his "musical hymen". Rico grew up with different aspects of music through classical music, electronic music, the 60/70's rock music, jazz etc. - he's always been interested in every kind of audible expression, just finding it all through his different emotional moods. Concerning electronic music, he used to grew up with hardcore-techno that was going over to a "90s-techno-allround-interest", starting around records like C.J. Bolland's "Neural Paradox".
While growing older, Rico studied djing via self-education and passed various DJ-gigs when he was between 12 and 16 years old. Besides, he started creating sounds, structures and small arrangements after taking his first "producing-steps" as a young boy on an old AMIGA® step-sequencer program. His main intention was to figure out how to preserve and re-enact personal visions, experiences, situations, places, things and the connected emotions and feelings through organic tones and harmonies, electronic signals and noises.
To add new possibilities to this intentional plan, satisfy his musical desires and enlarge his practical skills, he trained himself in playing the guitar and drums. Inspired by masses of fantastic music from each line of business, he constantly urged himself to manage the next step. So, there hasn't been much time for partying, drinking or to lead a wicked and disastrous way of growing up, but even more for inhaling and enjoying people and nature.
In 2005 and 2006, he released his first singles and EPs on the German labels "Dark-Noize-Recordings" and "Minimal Sound Noise" that were followed by his musical re-invention as Dinamoe two years later, initiated for developing another line of individual sound. While personally moving further, his music steadily experiences stylistic changes and refreshments, remaining unpredictable and varied for himself in its definite form - striving, restrained, overturned, uncanny or quirky, but always keeping a clear line due to his individual touch of positive tension, funkyness and soul, integrally speaking.
