Mixtapes & more


There are songs which remind you of very specific situations. Which tell a story or represent something like a personal milestone.


Here you will find a few chosen recordings – rather DJ mixes than own productions – which represent something like that for me in my so far quite short and unobtrusive musical journey as a musician. Own productions are availabe on my Bandcamp page, for my latest gigs you might check my Resident Advisor page.

TDHS0617: Middle of nowhere


The last Desperate Housemen Session was almost one and a half months ago now so I really had to deliver new stuff.

I just dug out a lot of records that I've never recorded before and so I also used many that are totally new in my collection, too. The mix is ​​actually made of music, which was very inspiring to me at that time.

Recorded: 2017 / 06 / 21

TDHS0417: Deep into the bowel of house


This is my very first mixtape, recorded in Darmstad in our new, lovely refurbished flat. Somehow smooth, laidback and mostly housy sound, digging in the crates on a cloudy afternoon in addition to some fresh coffee and in presence of our three fluffy cats. Obviously a very placid atmosphere.


The name of the mixtape pays hommage to DJ Sprinkles' classic house track "Grand Central Pt. I (Deep into the bowel of house)". I thought the title would fit because the mix includes very smooth housetracks and also because bowel literally means "Darm" in German. It's somehow a funny amphibology.


This little wordplay inspired me to paint an abstract picture of a bowel for the cover layout.

TDHS0816: Homelistening


That special sunday where you just start digging in the crates at your flat with some friends and have some nice coffee and beer, maybe later a bottle of vine and some glasses of a tasty whiskey. And you end up recording a weird five hour session with some of your favourite records, discovering some new Hardwax deliveries and watching the sun set while getting more und more drunk, having infinite fun and being hypnotized by the sound. Couldn't have spent this sunday any better.

We had a few problems while recording the session but I hope you enjoy anyway.
