Mijk van Dijk’s Microglobe
So glad I finally found this TV advertisement from 1996 for the first generation Renault Mégane car on YouTube. The featured music is my song The Wildlife off my first Mijk’s Magic Marble Box EP on Superstition Records in 1994 called The 4 Seasons Of The Mind. It was the first time, my music was synchronized on TV.
I just discovered this Techno Lexikon at a friend’s place, published by Raveline Magazine back in 1998. Funny to read about myself from the perspective of a point of time passed long ago.
He just earned the Grammy Award in the category “Best Dance/ Electronic Album” for his long awaited long player Syro released on Warp against such competition as Deadmau5, Little Dragon, Mat Zo, Röyksopp and Robyn.
To all my Chinese friends and fans: Happy Chinese Year Of The Goat! May it be filled with peace, joy, good luck and good health! And may we meet all soon again!
Welcome to Neu West Berlin. A place in the East of Berlin, where things are slightly different than in other places of Berlin today. It’s a temporary place for contemporary cultural actions: art, food, drinks, life, music. A house full of artists, musicians, freaks and visionaries, run by some of my old friends from the 90s.

Mijk van Dijk presents the first episode of music 4 the microglobe 2015. The first episode after “Charlie Hebdo”. Without fear, but high on hope and confidence. Power To The People!
In 1991, a few years after I left Jetzt! (see my story about Jetzt! << here), Bernd Begemann asked me if we could record a song together. It was the year after the German reunification and German nationalist feelings started to grow again here and there. Bernd wanted to produce an electronic track in which he would caricature conservative […]
Dear All, like probably all of you I feel heartstruck by the events that happened just a few days ago in Paris on January 7th 2015, when brute criminal terrorists slaughtered the good people of French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo allegedly in the name of Allah.
Yesterday I attended the “Trans-Europa-Express” show of Kraftwerk’s 8-concert series at Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Each concert puts a different of their classic albums in the spotlight. The Neue Nationalgalerie will be closed for renovation after these concerts, so this was a once-in-a lifetime chance to witness classic futuristic music in classic futuristic architecture.
In June 2014 Mijk van Dijk gave an interview to Italian DJ Mag which was published in the issue #42. So far this was only published in paper print, not online. By friendly permission of DJ Mag Italia we are now able to post the first big feature of Mijk van Dijk in an Italian magazine.
