All Music Guide:

Pan-Pot are a German minimal techno duo associated with Mobilee Records who made their acclaimed album debut in 2007 with Pan-O-Rama. Based in Berlin, Germany, the duo is comprised of Tassilo Ippenberger (from Chiemsee, Bavaria) and Thomas Benedix (from Templin, Brandenburg), who met as students at the SAE Institute. They initially made a name for themselves on the Berlin techno scene by hosting a series of parties. One person they met at their parties was Marco Resmann, a fellow SAE colleague with whom they founded Pan-Pot and at whose studio they got their production start. Another person they met was Anja Schneider, the co-founder of Mobilee Records. In collaboration with Resmann, Ippenberger and Benedix made their commercial recording debut as Pan-Pot in 2005 with a pair of EPs, Popy & Caste and Maffia, the former released on Mobilee Records, the latter on Einmaleins Musik. While Pan-Pot released additional music on Einmaleins Musik, they were chiefly associated with Mobilee Records henceforth. Subsequent EP releases on the label include Popy & Caste (2005), Obscenity (2005), Extra (2005), Black Lodge (2006), What Is What (2007), and Charly (2007). They also released the 2007 acclaimed full-length album Pan-O-Rama, which compiled the highlights of their Mobilee Records output to date. Additional EP releases on the label followed, including The Remixes (2008) and Confronted (2009). In addition to their production output, Pan-Pot established themselves as talented remixers, working with Anja Schneider, Mathias Schaffhäuser, Tim Xavier, and Sweet N'Candy, among others. They also established themselves as globe-trotting DJs, touring internationally in support of their production output.
