Deep minimal techno mixed on a rainy saturday night. Tracks by efdemin, butane, joris voorn and more.
When I used to live in Paris I regurlarly had to take the péripherique. This is the highway that goes all around Paris, like a ring. Driving in it at night, especially in its tunnels, always made me space out and wishing to have the proper spacy music. This mix tries fill this gap and be that spacey music. Space out!
A pot pourri of some of my favorites Rock and Disco classics with songs by Emmylou Harris, Bill Haley, Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin and many more.
This mixtape was a demo tape in preparation of a 80’s birthday party where I did DJ and has now become the favorite mix of my kids. I highly recommend to check it out!
The set starts slowly with some jazz, then kicks off with a few regular disco classics to get everybody on the dancefloor, builds up and peaks the tension with rock classics and finally after several ups and downs it finishes nice and smoothly with Bill Wither’s lovely day. (mehr …)
Third Volume of the Sidetrack Mixtape Serie: a potpourri of some of my all time favourite songs. Tracks by Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Fairport Convention, Jimi Hendrix and many more. Do not hesitate to also check the first two volumes: Sidetracks Volume One and Sidetracks Volume Two.
Back again with a new mixtape. This time, it’s something I wanted to put together since very very long. The idea behind this mixtape serie “Sidetracks” was to put together (in a as seamless way as possible) some of my all time favorite songs of various music styles that I can hear over and over, for some of them without losing the ability to give these specials shivers. On the other hand, the selected songs had also to have the potential to be listened at en passant, while for instance at work or doing anything focused. The challenge: Intense listening pleasure & relaxing entertainment.
This is the live recording (6 hours of music) of a wedding party (Rosalie’s and Felix’s) where I’ve been deejaying september 19th. It’s a real mash-up of all kinds of different music styles from disco to electro (even including german carnival music). The people had fun though and the party went on till 7 AM.
This is the third installement of the “Memories” mix serie, done as a tribute to past music-tainted moments. As the title suggests, I focused this time on (what else!? 🙂 House Music, but in its original, more analog form. It contains mainly oldskool house classics we used to really dig when they were released. Tracks by Masters at Work, Adeva, Kerri Chandler, Dajae, Armand van Helden,….
This is a new volume of my DJ mix serie named after precious stones. This time I felt more like mixing together Minimal and Techno tracks. The result became a deep uptempo techno mix, suited for after hour moments. Panorama Bar/Techno fans will enjoy this one, the others should probably avoid it: don’t bother listening if you’re not into Techno.
This is the live recording of a 30th birthday party where I have been deejaying last summer here in Berlin. It showcases the other more mainstream side of my DJ skills, covering various different music styles from pop, hip-hop, rock, reggae, salsa, jazz, and to finally end with a fabulous Vienna walz. There is definitely something for everybody in there. Check the tracklisting for more info.
A couple years ago, Steffen “Dixon” Berkhahn started the Innercity clubnights at WEEK12END Berlin, bringing back to Techno/Electro/Minimal Berlin much needed Deep House sounds. It fastly became one of the most-talked about parties in the German capital with a very special type of music, an own style, that was and still is a major inspiration to many music lovers, and in particular to me. So…. Having been spoiled for so long by this great music, having harrassed Dixon so often for the track titles…, I finally grouped the IMHO most remarkable tracks of the 2004-2005 years (at least some of them) in one mix together. I hope you will enjoy it and above all, get a little impression of the “innervision music style”. And if you like this type of music, and if you’ve never been to an Innercity night at WEEK12END in Berlin, then you sincerely shouldn’t wait any longer.
On this page you will find a selection of various mixtapes I have compiled and mixed in the past years. Since this section is also dedicated to an international audience, I am writing in English.
