- Oberst & Buchner


Andreas Buchner & Sebastian Oberst have been a part of each others lives for some time; their history stretching all the way back to their hometown in Bavaria, where they experimented at the age of 15 with guitars and different genres and formed their own band for a period of time. It wasn’t long however, until they realized their shared love of electronic music was too strong to ignore, daring them to venture on a new path as artists. This would soon lead them to begin crafting their first DJ-sets as individuals, bringing their own brand of emotional, melodic and melancholy beats to the stage in a whole new way. Study may have taken them both from Bavaria to Vienna, but the town soon became home for them musically as well, with its pulsing nightlife and community feel driving them to pursue their artist dreams further. Their DJ sets quickly catapulted their fan base up and 2010 saw them unify under the Oberst & Buchner umbrella, where they began shifting their focus to the live space. A couple of years later, they became fixtures in the Schönbrunner Perlen crew, with 2 successful releases with the Vienna label in 2012 and 2014, both to critical acclaim and support from the likes of Rampue, Ken Hayakawa, Matthias Meyer and Max Cooper, just to name a few. They haven't slowed down and made important steps to increase their international reputation. Their newest project, they started together with a couple of friends is called “Heimlich”. A series of events focused on downtempo music, became a label in 2017, which frequently releases podcasts and tracks of well-known artists, deriving from the slow-beat genre. This step had quite a big influence on their latest productions which appear to be slower than their earlier productions.
