DJsetscomIn 2001, DJ-Mix-CDs were still the hot shit and 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.  Other mix compilations would feature sets by Marco Remus & DJ Rush (Berlin/ Chicago), DJ Rok & Claude Young (Berlin/ Detroit),  Miss Yetti & Marco Bailey (Berlin/ Bruxelles), Frank Müller & Angela Flame (Berlin/ Singapore) and André Galuzzi / John Selway (Berlin/ New York). head honcho Hannes Hoffmeister put a lot of work into the promotion of his DJ mix series until the internet and free online mixes killed the business of commercial Mix-CDs.
I did the DJ mix at home with 2 Technics 1210s, 2 Pioneer CDJ-50s,  a Roland MS-1 Minisampler and a Korg Electribe ES-1, that just served with it’s delay function for sound effects like that JFK drop in the beginning.
But of course the main thing with ANY DJ-Mix is the track selection – and I am still pretty happy with it.
