Here’s the DJ Set I played at packed Club Oil in Shenzhen/ China on New Year’s Eve 2018. What a night to start the New Year.
I’m very happy to announce my 2017 Japan Tour. This September I shall tour Fukuoka, Osaka and Tokyo and introduce the music of my new label microglobe.
Music that I have recorded 30 years ago is finally out on Tapete Records from Hamburg. The album “JETZT! – Liebe In Grossen Städten (1984-1988)” contains recordings from several formations of the band “JETZT!” by singer/ songwriter Michael Girke. I have been the bass player
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”
The video premiere of the second a glow single monsters is out NOW: the very fashionable KALTBLUT Magazine presented the stunning video
Oh, I know, I did not post a proper monthly mix for quite a while now. So here’s a mix with the type of Techno I like to spin.
This is the Dusty Dub Mix I played live on Liquid Sky Berlin presentzzz on April 21st during Superbooth17, featuring new and classic dub tech tunes.
This is my jam for “Liquid Sky Berlin presentzzz” , the radio show by the Liquid Sky Berlin posse on Alex Berlin radio 91,00 FM from our show on April 14th 2017.
Apart from appearances at DOMMUNE and Oiran Warm Up Radio Show my main occupation on my 30th tour to Japan was my first ever gig at Kaga Music Festival, a beautiful little music extravaganza in Ishikawa prefecture at the Japanese Sea. It’s an onsen festival, so taking a hot bath was also on the list, despite the hot weather of 35°C. After a convenient ride from Tokyo with the Shinkansen and Thunderbird trains, our small group arrived in Kaga. The festival hosts many different stages, some electronic, some with bands and even some with pop idols. One great experience was when House legend Soichi Terada invited Toby Izui and yours truly on stage for a solo with the Korg Kaossilator. I’m so glad that this enchanted moment was captured on video. Soichi Terada invites Toby Izui and Mijk van Dijk on stage My DJ set after this sweet live jam was ever so rewarding. Playing after Tofubeats and before Towa Tei to an enthusiastic crowd, my set was more like a concert. And of course, after an after hour in our traditionally style room, we went to the onsen (hot bath) at 4 am in the morning for relaxation. How good is that? Thank you Kaga Festival for having me, it was an unforgettable pleasure. Oiran Warm Up Radio...read more
Hello there, as the Berlin real estate market is heating up, we just made more room in Schöneberg with remixes by 2raumwohnung and Der Dritte Raum. We must say we are more than chuffed to finally announce this, since Marcos and Mijk are both huge fans and long-time friends with both of these extraordinary German artists and both remixers have truly achieved to blend our original track perfectly with their respective musical trademark style and sound. Inga Humpe and Tommi Eckart have been playing the original version off the Berlin EP often in their DJ sets, which finally led to their inspiration for their track 1993 off their Nacht & Tag album. Their remix does not just jam on the irresistible groove but pays homage to the chord theme, that just seemed too delicate to touch for many a remixer in the past. It’s a wonderful modern update to our 25-year-old classic. Der Dritte Raum mastermind Andreas Krüger talked with Mijk about Schöneberg on a Christmas party last year and how much he would love to remix our tune and was pleased to hear that we were just in the process of planning new remixes anyway. He reconstructed the whole track with MIDI and his machines and remixed it from there, to achieve his unique DDR jamming style. So together with the wonderfully trippy Tim Engelhardt Remix that we already revealed in March, we’ve counted “one, two, three” now. Check the new spaces (2raumwohnung in German: two-room apartment, Der Dritte Raum in German: The Third Room) in our residence called “Schöneberg” NOW on Soundcloud and share your house guest experience in the comments.

If you find it sometimes a bit silent on my WordPress based website, why not follow my Instagram account? I think it’s easy and fun to post pictures here and there’s so much to discover and share when in Japan, so I just do it! Check it out! Of course I will keep on posting things on my Facebook page and on this website, my own...read more
I did an official remix for the wonderful tune “1993” by German duo 2raumwohnung. I’m very happy with it and can’t wait for your comments. I wanted to keep the beautiful vocals of Inga all over the track structure and aimed for that big emotional break that’s fully covered in the spaced out video teaser by Lucia Gerhardt. I hope you like it as much as I do. Full tune out soon in June. 2raumwohnung – 1993 (Mijk van Dijk...read more
On July 21st I will participate at the Kaga Music Festival in Kaga/ Japan on the northwestern coast. It’s a daytime festival with Japanese local culture, food and onsen (hot spring bath). It sounds super-exciting and I just can’t wait to go, meet old and new friends and spend a couple of days in Japan. The list of artists features Towa Tei, Yuki Kawamura, Toby Izui and many other Japanese acts and DJs. All the information here on the festival website. Or like it on...read more
New Mijk van Dijk Remix out on Schönbrunner Perlen from Vienna. I remixed the track “Horizont” by Austrian artist T Raum, along with Lycoriscoris, Kalitos, Staudinger & Schreder and T Raum with label boss Ken Hayakawa himself. When I spend two weekends in Austria last December, Ken played the original to me on our way back from our own recording session (pssst, there’s something in the making too…) to the train station and I immediately opted in for a remix. I’ve been playing my mix on several occasions already and I am well happy with it. How do you like it? Now it’s finally out for all of you of Ken’s label Schönbrunner Perlen. So check out the snippet below or simply head over straight to Beatport or the shop of your choice. T Raum – Horizont (Mijk van Dijk Remix) – Schönbrunner...read more

Also on decks: Dr. Motte, Jay Dee, Alexander Koning, Carla Roca, Pablo Rouve and many more. Although it’s so close from Berlin, I haven’t been playing in Poland for years.

On May 12th 2018 I had the pleasure to play again along with my friend DJ Jauche at Suicide Circus in Berlin. It was an oldschoolish event and since I always play early 90s tracks at my annual Walfisch Revival Performances, this time I was eager to play also some late 90s stuff at Jauchomatic, like those big tracks by Technasia, Thomas Schumacher and a lot of tunes from my 90s home base Superstition Records. Here’s my set from that night for your listening pleasure. Mijk van Dijk DJ-Set at Jauchomatic, Suicide Circus Berlin, 12.05.2018 Mijk van Dijk DJ Set @ Suicide Circus, Jauchomatic, 12.05.2018 1.
