Mijk van Dijk & Ken Hayakawa – Berlin-Vienna Connection Chapter 1 EP – Trapez 216

Yiiiiihaaaa! This must be the longest post title ever so far on my microglobe website and rightly so: my new collaboration EP with label Schönbrunner Perlen head honcho Ken Hayakawa from Vienna is out on Trapez Records from Cologne: the Berlin-Vienna Connection Chapter 1 EP. I’ve been a fan of Ken’s body of work since long and when I came to Austria for the Fantastic Gondolas party in Lech am Arlberg, we immediately clicked and went to the studio. Our main tune “Song Of The Sirens” grabbed the attention of Traumschallplatten/ Trapez label head honcho Riley and as the EP title suggests we are already working on Chapter 2. As it just so happened, Chapter 1 actually has RAVE written all over it. “Song Of The Sirens” came to life when  Ken introduced that sirenesque sound, after the basic backing track was already there, but lacked that certain something. Our first version started with that siren, the final version however kicks in with a beat for easy mixing. But when I was test-driving it at Sisyphos club in Berlin, I imagined, how lovely it would be to actually open my set with that siren sound. Lucky, that I still had the first demo version on my DJ-stick so that I kicked off with that siren sound and then mixed the final version in. That moment was a perfect “take-the-club-inspiration-to-the-studio-scenario” and we then conceived “Sorrow Of The Siren” basically as a DJ-tool but couldn’t resist  to add some rough industrial breakbeats on top, in order to give the DJ softwares of the world a metronome to produce a proper grid to. And of course for the pure fun of it. Check this in your club next time! “Ravemaschine” is taking the siren theme to a melodious level, infused with an ass-shaking groove. “CatZone” is the soundtrack to a cat fight in the neighbourhood at night, with a big break that lasts as long until the cat police finally arrives on the crime scene. Check out the videos on Trapez YouTube channel and SoundCloud.  Click here for links to the streaming service of your choice. And turn the volume UP! Mijk van Dijk & Ken Hayakawa – Berlin-Vienna Connection Chapter 1 EP – Trapez 216 on Soundcloud And while you’re at it, don’t forget to treat yourself to the hypnotic videos conceived by Trapez label boss Riley Reinhold. Happy Home-Raving! Song Of The Sirens...

Announcing new EP on Trapez Records

I’m happy to announce my next EP coming up on Trapez Records, this time together with Ken Hayakawa, label boss of Schönbrunner Perlen from Vienna. I’ve been a fan of his work since long and when I came to Austria for the Fantastic Gondolas party in Lech am Arlberg, we immediately clicked and went to the studio. Our main tune “Song Of The Sirens” grabbed the attention of Traumschallplatten/ Trapez label head honcho Riley and after a few more sessions, Ken and me are establishing the “Berlin – Vienna Connection” with Chapter 1. The DJ-Promo is out now and I just can’t wait for the results coming in. Maybe you will dance to this already in your clubs before the actual release in September. Stay tuned for more!...

Mijk van Dijk – Soul Survivor (Ghost In The Shell Tribute 2004)

After my contribution to the Ghost In The Shell Playstation video game soundtrack in 1997 (see last weeks Mystery Monday post), I was asked again in the year 2004 to contribute to a Ghost In The Shell tribute album. I produced this hypnotic techno track that embodies for me the contemplation of Major Motoko Kusanagi about her inner self. Other artists on  Ghost In The Shell Tribute Album Ver 2.0.0 were Luke Slater, Green Velvet, Carl Cox, Oliver Ho, Bryan Zentz, Q-hey, Shin Nishimura, Ken Morioka and Kouichi Yamazaki.  I’ve been playing Soul Survivor again in my recent sets and it always leaves an impression. Unfortunately it’s is not available anymore. I’d like to change that. For the time being you can listen to the full album on YouTube. microglobally yours, Mijk van Dijk Ghost in the Shell 🎧 Tribute Category Techno 2.0.0 (Full...

Ghost In The Shell PlayStation Soundtrack

That was such an honour: when Takkyu Ishino curated the lineup of his favourite producers to contribute to a Sony Playstation video game based on the anime Ghost In The Shell from 1995, he invited a who-is-who-of-techno to participate: Claude Young aka Brother From Another Planet, Derrick May, Dave Angel, Hardfloor, C.J. Bolland, The Advent, Westbam, Joey Beltram, Scan X and yours truly. As a huge fan of Shirow Masamune‘s mangas and that particular anime, it was like a dream come true. I created three tunes for this game: “Brain Dive”, which you can hear in-between levels, “Firecracker” – already appearing in the second game level and “Fuchikoma”, which you can hear …uhm….in a later level. 😉 All these tunes have also been released through Sony Music Japan on double CD, on double vinyl and on marvellous picture discs and I still love to play them out.

Zug der Liebe 2019, August 24

The “Zug der Liebe” is a social rave parade, taking underground dance music and community issues to the streets of Berlin for the fifth time now, August 24th 2019. It’s an absolutely non-commercial demonstration, where floats are hosted by Berlin based labels, clubs and party crews, each representing a social cause or promoting a welfare organisation. Together with DJ Tanith, DJ Vela, ED2000 and Soulhunter I’m happy to be part of the Dangerous Drums float, who is supporting the AWO,  standing up for equal rights for refugees.  The Zug der Liebe will start it’s route at the Schlesischer Busch, right at the border of Kreuzberg and Alt-Treptow, where that infamous Berlin wall used to divide the city. Undivided we will party/walk through Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain until we reach Osthafen/ Ex-Magdalena for the final party with DJs like  Thomas Schumacher,  Ante Perry, Gunman, HRRSN, Kaldera, Mark Höffen, Nico Pusch and yours truly. It’s called the “Offizielle Zug der Liebe 2019 Charity Night” and you can get your tickets via PayPal NOW!  It is a charity night because there are no big companies sponsoring the parade or the floats.  That’s why Dangerous Drums also startet a crowdfunding campaign for their float in conjunction with the AWO. I would be absolutely delighted, if you would support the crowdfunding campaign! Available perks are Dangerous Drums music releases on vinyl, CD and USB-stick as well as shirts, posters, flyers and even an exclusive physical DJ set by Dangerous Drums master mind ED2000. Or become the ultimate Dangerous Drums Hero for a lifetime.
