Magical Mystery: Marmion in the movies

Yesterday I attended the Berlin premiere of a new movie after a book by Element Of Crime singer Sven Regener. It’s a comedy set in the German Techno scene of the 90s.  Marmion’s 1993 classic “Schöneberg” is part of the soundtrack.

German electronic pop duo 2raumwohung aka Inga Humpe and Tommi Eckart just released their 8th studio album Nacht und Tag. The opening track “1993” also carries some inspiration from “Schöneberg”

Metro at Wilde Renate, 25.02.2017

I’m happy to come back to Salon zur Wilden Renate for a DJ set at Metro, together with Frank Muller aka Beroshima and Alex Cliche at Schwarzer Raum on Saturday, February 25th 2017. After my spontaneous B2B set with Frank at Ralph Ballschuh’s birthday this January (see photo by Bendeg), I’m even more looking forward to this event. Metro is Michal Ziętara‘s party series. He also repaired my UDG-DJ trolley in his famous DJ-Trolley Pitstop Station. Very much recommended! I will try to take all the love from last Saturday’s Old School Tekknozid Party and transform it into a DJ set with my latest promos and productions. Hope to see you around!

Live @ Tekknozid, Oldschool-Set, 18.02.2017

I played live at the Old School Party Tekknozid last Saturday. So much love, so much sweat, it was just great! Thanks to Tekknozid head honcho Wolle XDP, for whom I played already almost 25 years ago at Wizzzard and Tekknozid X. A big thank you also to the DJs Tanith, Olivier Abbeloos, ED2000 and everyone at super-packed Club Griessmühle, you really made my night. Many of you asked for a recording of my set and here it is, live from my stagemixer. Unfortunately my microphone created heavy feedback so that I refrained from using it and could not perform with vocals just as I planned it. Next time, baby! 😉 I hope you enjoy my live set. Only tracks from my first EPs as LoopZone or 9-10-Boy with Tanith and some unreleased tracks with samples from the attic (aka floppy discs). Mijk van Dijk live at Tekknozid, 18.02.2017 I’m waiting for more pictures to come in. In the meantime here’s some video footage for you, thanks to René Meier. You can hear and see my LoopZone tunes Sex Machine Man, Natural High and Home Is Where The Hartcore Is, played live and direct, with sampler, sequencers and drum machines. No laptop!

Live at Tekknozid, 18.02.2017

I’m gonna play an Old School LIVE-Set as LoopZone at Tekknozid on February 18th, just like almost 25 years ago. It’s gonna be all live with hardware machines and no strings attached. The Wizzzard-Party at Quartier (which is now Wintergarten) on February 29th 1992 wasn’t exactly a Tekknozid Party, but organised by Tekknozid head honcho Wolle XDP. DJs were Jonzon and Tekknozd resident Roland BPM. I played live as LoopZone with my partner in crime Hannes Talirz, all live, all improvising, all energizzzing. Back then there were no laptops yet, so we used drum machines, synths, hardware sequencer and hardware samplers to play hardware Techno. This time again, I’m bringing no laptop, but only hardware machines and will probably play one of my harder sets, only playing tunes from very early 90s and of course a lot of jamming around with the machines and with YOU. It’s gonna be hard, it’s gonna be justified and it’s gonna be ancient. My fellow DJs will be Olivier Abbeloos & MC Zeno (T99, Quadrophonia/Belgium),  DJ Tanith & Wolle Xdp (TEKKNOZID Residents) and Terri Belle & DJ Clé (Planet/Washing Machine) . Chill Out Area by Ed2000 (Interference). It wouldn’t be Tekknozid if there wasn’t the legendary “Magic Bassline” provided by Kirsch Audio Sound System, the Oldschool Laser Inferno and the Tekknozid Strobo Hell.

a glow – perfect – The LSB Remixes

The first single release „Perfect“ of a glow aka Jette von Roth and Mijk van Dijk is now remixed by their friends from the Liquid Sky Berlin collective. Omsk Information reconstructs the original song with thumping drums and fat bass. Together with LSB head honcho Dr. Walker he also created a deeper dub version. Ambient Master Sense from Melbourne/ Australia grounds his typical dense soundscapes with surprisingly swinging beats. André Fischer aka ADSX takes Jette’s tender vocals on a 12-minute journey through cosmic rhythmical reverb spaces. Lose yourself in this remix. Finally there’s an edit of Omsk Information’s phat remix in radio-friendly length. Out now on many major download stores like iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, Juno...

Musotalk

I took part at Musotalk Stammtisch today, a live video conference hosted by my friend Non Eric of Lunatec fame. Eric, who had also created a great remix of Marmion‘s track Best Regards is hosting a talk about musical instruments, industry developments and basically full-on spec wars! Expect some super-nerdy Fachsimpelei here. The talk revolves around the revival of the turntable in the record booth, Stem Mastering and the connections between DJ work and studio production. With me were Non Eric, Stephan Bobinger and Kai Schwirzke. If you missed the live stream, here’s the...

I wish us all a better 2017!

My dear friends, 2016 has been quite a rough ride, hasn’t it? Hard to swallow all the negative that has been thrown at us: – dangerous warfare in Syria and Ukraine with the superpowers involved – fake news and info wars over the interpretive authority – worldwide terror and the after-effects like  – the rise of right-winged despots and parties – often by the votes of those they actually oppress, – the way too early departure of idols as Prince and Bowie and – even worse – of dear personal friends. Nevertheless, let’s be “High On Hope” that the New Year 2017 will bring good luck and fortune and eventually peace for us all. Let’s stand together in all our diversity, because that’s the best answer to those who want to divide and conquer our thoughts and minds and life for their own benefit. I will finally launch my label microglobe productions soon in 2017. I shall continue my radio show music for the microglobe in an advanced format. And there’ll be much more music by a glow, my new duo with Jette von Roth. It’s gonna be an exciting 2017. Happy New Year,...

Merry Christmas everybody!

It’s the time of year again: Christmas season is here. Back in the early 90s, the discontinued Boom Magazine invited several activists from the Berlin club scene for a Christmas photo shooting: DJ Terrible as the little Jesus baby, Heike Woosey and Uwe Reineke as Mary and Joseph, Ellen Allien, Kati Schwindt and Mac Folkes as the three holy kings and finally Clé, Bernd Neff and yours truly as the shepherds. Already a classic! I hope that your Christmas wishes may all come true and wish you a peaceful and merry...
