11/03/12BERLIN BOOMBOX MIX #5
DJ Dance is the alias of no one other but Axel Pfaender himself, who's been spinning records since the late 90s when the Berlin club scene was still underground and there was no such thing as MP3s. When you spend your days pampering a monster baby like the Berlin Boombox there aren't many opportunities to spin your beloved house records. So this was a rare opportunity for Axel to select an hour of house vinyls to celebrate the imminent launch of the Berlin Boombox.

DJ Hilmatic is a veteran of Germany's Hip Hop scene. As a member of 0711Club and DJ for Breite Seite he played clubs across Europe. He also ran his own recordstore Soundshop, together with DJ Emilio. Nowadays he is kind of retired, so I am lucky to have snatched this mix of classic Hip Hop tunes from him.
08/29/12BERLIN BOOMBOX MIX #3
DJ Emilio is promoter, producer, vinyl collector, record shop owner and radio show host. The last 25 years music has been dominating his life and the last 20 years he has been dominating clubs in his hometown Stuttgart. His mix takes us back to the funky 60s & 70s.
08/22/12Berlin Boombox Mix #2
Drei Farben House
Drei Farben House is not only a fellow collector of vinyl records, but also a producer of fine house tunes and boss of his record label tenderpark. He prefers his music to come in the form of big black vinyl discs and he's usually reluctant to record dj-dets, but I was able persuade him to record a set for the Berlin Boombox series. He serves up a mix of sophisticated house with splashes of disco and funk. No tracklist here, but I'm sure a few of the tracks are dubplates of unreleased tracks.
06/01/12Berlin Boombox Mix #1
Estimulo is a man with a truly flawless musical taste and dedicated to the old school. He's always on the lookout for those special moments of dancefloor salvation, digging up classic house, deep techno, old school electro and italo. He obviously has a gigantic collection of vinyl that must have taken an admirable amount of time and love for the music to collect. As part of the Berlin-based futura event and DJ crew, he's hosting events in spots like ://about blank, Horst and Chez Jacki. His weekly Internet Radio Show EstimuloShow is regarded as a mainstay for those who count themselves to the deeper House circles.
