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.
I did this DJ Mix for “Liquid Sky Berlin presentzzz”, the radio show by the Liquid Sky Berlin posse on Alex Berlin radio 91,00 FM on March 3rd to celebrate “303-Day”.
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 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.
Looking forward to play LaLeLu at Humboldthain Club Berlin on Friday, January 27th 2017. That’s tonight, folks. 😉
My dear friends, 2016 has been quite a rough ride, hasn’t it?
Just before this Christmas Sunday ends: some midnight vibes from Inge Brandenburg, a true German Jazz Diva from the 60s.Up there with the best!
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
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 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
On may 19th 2018 I played a DJ set at the Polish edition of “The Beginning” in Wrocław/ Poland at Klub Pralnia. 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.

Today 20 years ago my first “Best-Of”-Compilation was released in Japan through Sony Music/ Office 7, the CD “Multi-Mijk” mixed by my good friend DJ Toby Izui aka Tobynation in 1998.Toby knows me and my music so well since 1992 and thus he created a DJ-mix which did not just sum up my body of work so far but also helped me find new fans in Japan that have been following me ever since. It was released through Sony Japan, so it had a lot of attention in the printed media and even a big display in major Tokyo record stores. The cover artwork is very special to me as well. When Office 7 manager Toru Nagamine asked me, which cover design I would like, I requested straight away, an artwork by my Manga hero Masamune Shirow (Ghost In The Shell, Appleseed, Orion, Dominion Tank Police, etc.). Shirow-san lives withdrawn somewhere in the Kansei-Area and only a few people know his identity. So Toru-san naturally said “maybe not possible” (which basically means “NO” in Japanese). However he somehow reached out for Shirow-san and only a two weeks later he called me and said, that Shirow-san knows my music and would be delighted to do the cover artwork for me. Oh Happy Joy! The piece he conceived is one of his first ever done completely in CGI, a technique he would keep on using for his later works like Man-Machine Interface and so on. The liner notes for the CD were conceived by my friends and Frogman Records label bosses Dai Sato and Kengo Watanabe. To round up the friends connection: the press photos have been shot at Potsdamer Platz Berlin, then still under construction, by Berlin Techno party photographer Wolfgang Brückner. The title of the compilation actually refers to an article in German Frontpage magazine, in which I was dubbed “Multi-Mijk” by chief editor Jürgen Laarmann due to the many different projects and collaborations I did. Thank you to everybody at Sony Office 7, who helped create this wonderful piece of my musical history. Thank you to Masamune Shirow for making a small part ofme a puzzle piece in his own legacy. Thank you to all the collaborators, who made this happen! Thank you to momijiko_Z (もみじこ) for reminding my about this anniversary through Twitter. I am so busy in the studio these days, producing new music, I would have completely forgot! 😀 And super special thanks to Toby-san, of course! You rock!...read more
It’s been a while since Marmion’s Schöneberg has been remixed by DJ Hell, Abe Duque,Donnacha Costello, Chaim, Roberto Rodriguez and Sebastian Krieg & Strobe in 2010. 8 years later, we thought it’s about time for some new interpretations. Today I proudly present you the Tim Engelhardt-Remix of the timeless tune I produced with Marcos López back in 1993. When you have followed my charts and playlists, you might have noticed that I quite like the music of this young chap from Cologne and I’m really glad with the path he took here: fresh, unobstructed and highly playable. I actually dropped his remix already in some of my DJ sets and it always enhanced the party. First DJ feedback is already in by Monika Kruse (“nice floating remix” 3/5), Dave Seaman (“Superb rework from Tim” 5/5)”, Youandme (“nice remix tim! thank you.” 4/5), Hernan Cattaneo (“really cool mix” 4/5), Markus Worgull (“thx a lot” 4/5) and many more. To be released 30.03.2018 on push communications. This is only Part 1 of more remixes to come and when we count to 2 and 3, we will unwrap more goodness and some of the best Schöneberg remixes so far. I’m tellin’ ya! 😉 For now, please enjoy: Marmion – Schöneberg (Tim Engelhardt...read more
