Live @ Tekknozid, Oldschool-Set, 18.02.2017

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

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!

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...

Peace 4 All

Posted by on Dec 22, 2016 in Berlin, Blog, Discography, Labels, microglobe productions, Mijk van Dijk | 0 comments

Peace 4 All

My dear friends and fans in Germany and abroad, I am still shocked about the horrible assault on the Christmas market at Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz, an iconic square in the heart of Westberlin, that I know by heart. I will never be able to understand the hatefulness of an individual to commit such atrocity. I am also disgusted by the kind of discussions following this incident, instrumentalizing it with prefab accusations and predictions. I am not gonna accuse nobody else but that asshole and his companions. I am not gonna follow the logic of violence and retaliation. I am not gonna get involved in endless useless discussions weighing the lives of innocent victims against each other. My language is music and this is what I have to say: PEACE 4 ALL! I wish you all a peaceful Christmas and a happy, healthy, successful and particularly peaceful New Year 2017 ! P.S.: Thanks for the quick and quality mastering by Sandro...
