Mijk van Dijk’s Microglobe
Superstition Records from Hamburg is celebrating their 10 years anniversary in grand style. Label head Tobias Lampe asked Mijk van Dijk to do a mix CD in a similar fashion like his track “Super 100” of the 100th release compilation which was constructed only out of samples of the first 99 releases.
Today I gave a workshop at the DJ School G. Martell in Mexico-City together with my friend DJ Klang. I explained my philosophy of DJ and production work and also showed how to quickly mash-up some randomly chosen traditional Mexican music with a modern dance beat. Later I had the honour to give a print of […]
Here’s an interview in German language for MEMI Musicbase. Mijk talks frankly about his new album Everyground, his musical origins and how he works in his studio, all in German language.
In 2001, DJ-Mix-CDs were still the hot shit and DJ-sets.com asked me and my dear friend Toby Izui to contribute 2 DJ mixes to their series of city mixes, where one DJ from Berlin would partner with a DJ from another influential Techno city.
In 2000 I had the honour to provide music for 2 PlayStation 2 video games: Ridge Racer V, a starting title for the PS2 and Armored Core 2, a robot fighting simulation. I’ve been a fan of the predecessor of both games, so I was very delighted to work on this.
Japanese TV visited Mijk in the summer of 1998 in his Berlin studio next to Wittenbergplatz and produced a nice video feature . Long-haired Mijk explains how he works with drum machines, synthesizers, samplers and Cubase on his first Macintosh computer. Note from 2014: this is how we did Techno in the late 90s, still with […]
This is the short movie Femme by Carl Finkbeiner. I did the original soundtrack in 1997.
In November 1996 I toured with my Marmion partner Marcos López through Australia, playing Marmion shows in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
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.
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 […]
