This was one of the first projects of Studio !k7: the experimental computer-animated movie Escape To Trancyberia, which was released on VHS Video on September 18th 1995.
This is a recording of Kate Bathgate‘s show Tranzmission on 3RRR Community Radio Melbourne Australia from June 19, 1994.
Marcos López and me were invited to disucss and perform in the music show Eurotops on East-German TV channel MDR. The topic was dance music and how people interact with it. Another guest was Frank Farian, producer of Boney M, Milli Vanilli, and others. Riding high on the wave of success of our Marmion smasher Schöneberg […]
In 1993, my friend Marcos Lopez and me composed a classic which two decades later still spreads ecstasy and goose bumps on the dance floors around the world. The Marmion Berlin EP was composed and produced in my studio in Schöneberg and hence one tune was in fact called “Schöneberg”.
Little did Mijk van Dijk and Marcos López know back in 1992 that they would only one year later release an EP with a track called Schöneberg which would stand as a classic of Techno music even decades later. In 1992 Mijk had just released his first EPs and in conjunction with Cosmic Baby produced […]

As usual the Japanese WIRE festival releases a compilation. When I played there for the first time in 1999 I wrote a tune called Lite My Wire to celebrate the festival and my friends in Japan. This time again I took the opportunity to do something special. I am a big fan of Japanese Electro pop outfit Overrocket, the band of my friend Takashi Watanabe (not to be confused with DJ Warp, who has the same name). I met Takashi-san already in the 90s when he was producing for Denki Groove and Takkyu Ishino‘s solo works. Then he established his electro pop band Overrocket and released some great albums. Their self-titled album Overrocket is my favourite. I also had the pleasure to see them live in Japan. And I always wanted to invite Overrocket singer Michiyo Honda to collaborate on a song with me. Now the time felt just right and I am happy to announce my official contribution to the WIRE13 compilation: My Wire To You. The compilation will be out on August 14th through Sony Japan and for all you Gaijins I will try to post you links to download shops, where you can find it without having to learn Japanese first. 😉 By the way: domo arigato gozaimasu to Takashi-san for recording Michiyo’s sweet vocals in Tokyo so...read more

Hah, don’t worry, I am not gonna move my monthly NuFunk/ Boogie show motherfunk from BLN.fm to another radio station. But I would like to recommend an iPhone app here. As most of you might already know, BLN.fm is a web based radio that you cannot receive on your old AM/FM radio set. Yet! But from now on, I have my AM/FM radio always in my pocket, with this nice new app called homesick.fm. In the free version you can decide for one city of your choice (which is of course Berlin in my case) and listen to all the stations from that city. All the stations are located on the FM range where you would find them also on your ordinary AM/FM radio. And guess what: on the far left of the Berlin section, there is our very own station BLN.fm, playing electronic music far from the ordinary 24 hours a day. And home of yours truely motherfunk. So make sure to get the app until July 18th and dial in at 18h CET for episode #33 of my show. To listen to the last (and all past) episodes go...read more

Monica Jeffries from Hamburg has an amazing voice. Alison Moyet, Yazoo and Erasure come to mind, when you hear her 80s infused synth pop, nowadays a highly under-rated genre. From day one she has also been a big fan of The Chaenge, my NuFunk band with Florian Schirmacher. Monica was attending our gigs and writing nice comments about our music on the usual social media sites. So when she asked me for a remix of her debut single “Mystery”, I naturally promised her a NuFunk remix. I dropped the chord changes of the original and switched on the vocoder instead for some extra harmony over a lazy Boogie beat. Now it’s finally out and I am very happy to share this with you. I hope you like it too. Wanna own it and never ever give it back again? It’s out on most of your favorite download shops. Wanna hear the original and the other remixes? Here’s a Soundcloud snippet reel. Fell in love with Monica so much that you need to listen to her album “Back To Eden” ? Here you...read more
