Ali Berger | Trackland / Spectral Sound / FCR | Pittsburgh
Ali Berger has been quietly percolating in various corners of the US dance music scene for the last decade. Originally from central New Jersey, he moved to Boston to attend university and quickly became active in the community as a DJ, producer, and live performer. Years spent playing opening slots around the city and DJing alongside fellow Bostonians Will Martin and John Barera helped Ali refine his sound palette and musical intent, exploring the spaces between distorted drum machine improvisations, synth-heavy techno trips, and warm mechanized funk.
Eventually finding his way to Detroit in 2015, Ali released his first solo 12”, Phone Calls, on Will & Susie Martin’s Firm Tracks label--a milestone in an extensive and rapidly expanding discography (now six albums, ten EPs and counting). Ali’s time in Detroit connected him with new friends and collaborators, punctuated by spells of isolation that brought him more deeply in touch with his musical goals. This led to further peaks with The Protector 12” on Detroit’s Clave House, a collaboration with Davis Galvin as Hits Only on Pittsburgh’s Is/Was, and several digital full-lengths on his own Trackland label including the massive Voltage Release Talk Channels, a bright and intimate two-hour trip drawn from years of unreleased productions.
Through these releases and new opportunities to bring his DJ skills to intimate venues across the midwest, Ali has become an integral voice in North America’s current wave of visionary music makers and DJs. He is now based in Pittsburgh and embedded in its tight-knit community of dedicated music lovers, just in time for Spectral Sound to release his next 12”, Sump Pump. On this release Ali shows yet another side of his practice, with five precisely-tuned dancefloor cuts engineered to sit comfortably alongside classics and modern productions. From the slippery groove of the title track to the hard, anxious funk of “Dreaming Of A World”, his intrepid approach now arrives with a new level of sonic cohesion. What’s clear from the last ten years is that Ali is always searching, reaching, and developing--whatever he’s done already, something exciting is right around the corner.

In the era when America's Rust Belt got its name, factory workers labored on a 12-hour day or night shift for two weeks straight. To switch shifts, one group would have to work 24-hours straight and cover the labor gap. This grueling shift became known as the Longturn.
Longturn music was founded to give people with day jobs a space to spend their second shift. No bottle service, no passwords, just a dance floor filled with good people and good music.
Come early, stay late, dance hard
