There is an air of mystery shrouding the true meaning behind the acronym of
M.A.N.D.Y., an alias which embodies the mutual talents of childhood friends Philipp
Jung and Patrick Bodmer. The pair readily indulge this curiosity by toying with various
clever possibilities, including Me AND You, but the truth is likely a giggle under each of
their talented breaths. P and P have carved a unique niche in electronic music by
consistently selecting productions that induce their audience into a somatic frenzy. On
the platform of their aptly titled Get Physical label, M.A.N.D.Y. has achieved massive
success in colluding to create music that simply makes bodies move. Their foot
stamping, hair flying passion is the ultimate expression of a dance music phenomenon
for many years.

When M.A.N.D.Y. and Booka Shade joined as musical soul mates with DJ T., first in
Frankfurt, then in Berlin, Get Physical produced a caliber of electricity that rippled
throughout the EDM community and into the relative mainstream. Philipp’s charm and
savvy, Patrick’s allusive artistry, DJ T.’s killer entrepreneurial sense and Booka Shade’s
collaborative genius combined to form a masterpiece of intelligent design that reflects
romantic sensibility and technical virtuosity. Together, they push the boundaries of
dance music to compile an enviable arsenal of electro kissing house while caressing
disco and flirting with techno. Body Language was the ubiquitous hit of 2005 and
M.A.N.D.Y.’s Fabric Series three years later cemented their reputation as two of the
most captivating selectors on the planet. One of their most recent prestige was a
complication for Renaissance in 2009 which was met with tremendous accolades and
described by Resident Advisor as “maturity, smarts, and cohesion…that is rare these

Philipp and Patrick know exactly which buttons to press to make that bass jiggle up your
spine and seduce your body free. Alongside many lives compadres Booka Shade,
M.A.N.D.Y. has taken some time from their hectic global tour schedule to devise new
elaborations, culminating in the release of Body Language Vol. 10 in April 2011. In
addition to a single release that will be the first Booka Shade vs. M.A.N.D.Y. cooperation
to be heard in years, the boys have closed on a revolutionary touring show that utilizes
infrared technology and a new mapping technique to project inverted video effects onto
their Physical form as they perform. It is no doubt that their plans for this never before
seen live visual component will conjure the kind of visceral excitement that only this duo
can. In the feat of the imagination, M.A.N.D.Y. powers on through a perpetual rebirth into
pulsating beats and pretty lights.
