TR-101 is the collaborative live project of DJ Pete and Sleeparchive. Peter Kuschnereit is recognized as one of Berlin’s longest-serving techno figureheads through his work behind the counter at Hard Wax and in the studio as Substance and one half of Scion. Roger Semsroth, meanwhile, has been dabbling in the deepest recesses of minimal techno as Sleeparchive since 2004, releasing a string of low-key 12-inches through his eponymous imprint, and most recently appearing on Tresor with Ronan Point in the middle of 2011.
TR-101 stands for pitch black techno.
The first concert took place at the Hard Wax 20th anniversary party [in 2009]. Both had a great time on stage and got really good feedback and some more booking requests afterwards. The first time using the TR-101 synonym was at a Wax Treatment party in 2010. TR-101 supposed to be a live concept, there are no plans to release a record.
