Mathis Mootz (born 1976) is a prolific German electronic musician and DJ from Germany. Mootz is best known as The Panacea (until 2005, simply as Panacea), his drum and bass stage name and main musical project, and as (pronounced Squaremeter), his dark ambient side project and alter-ego. Born August 19, 1976 in Wetzlar, Germany, Mootz served an apprenticeship in classical music and was a member of the boy's choir of Windsbach. After studying music engineering at the SAE Institute, Mootz worked with the experimental hip hop/illbient label Chrome, an offshoot of Force Inc Music Works. Over the course of several drum and bass albums and many singles, and as A&R manager for Chrome, later renamed Position Chrome, Panacea became known for pushing the bounds of the drum and bass genre into industrial and hardcore territory, and for energetic DJ sets which fused these genres in a live setting. With his side project m², he explored a more minimal side of electronic music, first in the realm of clicks 'n' cuts, and later in the dark ambient territory pioneered by the likes of Lustmord. Mootz lives and produces in Sommerhausen, a countryside town near Würzburg. Image File history File links Flag_of_Germany. ...

The Panacea

Mootz worked with the experimental hip hop/illbient label Chrome in the mid-1990s, an offshoot of Force Inc Music Works. Under the name Panacea, he released a string of dark drum and bass singles on the label in 1996, followed by the LPs Low Profile Darkness in 1997 and Twisted Designz in 1998, which pushed the tech step format established by the UK's Ed Rush and Optical into harsh industrial/digital hardcore territory. Mootz took over Chrome's A&R, and the label was renamed Position Chrome soon after, evolving into one of the first and most notable German drum and bass labels.

Mootz's broad musical background lead him to experiment in other genres, from the avant garde minimalism of his Brasilia soundtrack (part of Caipirinha's Architettura series exploring the relationship between architecture and electronic music), to his collaboration with J-pop singer Hanayo, which saw the duo electronically re-scoring Bach's Ich Steh´ An Deiner Krippen Hier. A number of MCs guested on his LP Phoenix Metabolism (1999), while he refined his industrial drum and bass style on the LP German Engineering (2001). Mootz also began a number of side projects and collaborations in this period, releasing albums of raggacore (as Rich Kid), electro (as Bad Street Boy), hardcore (as Kate Mosh), and drum and bass with DJ Scud (as The Redeemer) and Problem Child (as Disorder). Sinecore, the first album by his glitch/dark ambient alter-ego m² (pronounced "Squaremeter") was released in 2000 on Mille Plateaux.

The Hardest Tour on Planet Earth (2001) documented his partnership with fellow German drum and bass producer Cativo, where elements of oldskool hardcore and other early rave music began entering his productions. Underground Superstar (2002) found him fusing early hardcore and jump-up with modern production techniques. The album included "The Evil Seed", a vocal track for which a music video was produced, and "The Last Brotherhood", a tribute of sorts to The Prodigy's "Rhythm of Life". Adopting an extremely energetic DJ persona, he became known for genre-bending sets that were equal parts hardcore and drum and bass. He also began collaborating with Luna-C, one of the champions of the breakbeat hardcore revival known as hardcore breaks.

Position Chrome ceased activity briefly in 2004 when Force Inc.'s distributors EFA-Medien went bankrupt, but in 2005, Mootz revived the label, changing his name to The Panacea. He has since returned to somewhat darker sounds, releasing a number of singles on Position Chrome, as well as UK labels Outbreak and Offkey Records, the latter run by UK producer Raiden and specializing in acid techno-influenced drum and bass. Acid techno is the term used to describe a style of techno that originated in the London squat party scene in the early 1990s. ...
