This week´s AMFM is the second hour of my 3h set that I played at Underground in Liverpool on Friday, March 17th. The club is called Underground, since.. well it is kind of in the basement. A great location with a proper sound system is sometimes all you need. There is not really much to say about that gig other than it was loads of fun and the vibe was great. Sometimes there is just not much more to it, just enjoying playing the music. So I do hope you can enjoy listening to it now :) Looking forward to be back … next week you will find the third and final hour of the set.

This week´s AM/FM is the recording of the first hour of my set on the Main Stage at Movement Detroit on Monday May 30th. I travelled to Detroit already on that Sunday straight from London and what a blast I had, hanging out on that festival that day without having to play. As I wasn’t aware of the full line up this year (sometimes I just don’t know… and been less online lately), I was very pleasantly surprised by all the people I ran into and got to hang out. Already checking in at the hotel met my good friend and amazing musician Guti, who invited me to the first beer and from that moment on it was all fun and games till late night/morning. Amongst having great times with Dubfire, Joseph Capriati, Moderat, Adam Beyer, Ellen Alien, Heidi, Hito, Tiga, Loco Dice, Matador and many more, I finally got to meet legendary DJ Pierre for the first time ever (some of you might have seen that moment during my set when he came on stage), who influences me till today with his wild pitch style since the early 90’s. Drinking tequila and having fun with Dave Smith and his lovely wife at his booth in the backstage also wasn’t helping to stay sober. So the Sunday already had set the mood for the Monday, which turned out to be equally exciting. I played right after John Digweed, starting before sunset and ended my set in darkness. Playing this Main Stage around this time is really something else, besides the great crowd, having these GM buildings in the background really constantly reminds you of that special place you are at. One of the birthplaces of Techno (as I believe there are many on the planet). What an honor to be there and play after all these years. Big thanks, of course next to everyone I met and saw, goes out to the Paxahau Crew who organize that whole thing. I know these guys since many years, they booked me to Detroit already over 15 years ago, when I slept in their basement (back then called the Paxahau Hotel). We have come a long way since then and they are still fully in there with their heart and passion. It is getting better year after year. Hope you enjoy the set as much as I did playing it….

This week´s #AMFM is the fourth and last hour of my set that I played on August the 12th at Sunny Beach, a Bulgarian beach on the Black Sea… Well the actual venue is called Cacao Beach, quite a beautiful place with an amazing sunrise in the morning. It had been a pretty intense, fun and long day before we headed out to Bulgaria, cause it was on the same day of the great Swiss Streetparade in Zürich where I played on a float with @dice. A fun day, but also a little demanding with regard to sleep and activity. The plan was to play 5h at Cacao Beach, from 2-7 am, so into the sunrise. Shortly after we got to the venue, the promoter told us, that the government is regularly checking the sound levels of all places on the beach and that I had to play at around 90 dB for the most part. For those of you not familiar with levels, in a club it is relatively normal to have about 100-120 dB. So when I started a little delayed (this is why the whole set is only about 4h and 40min long) I tried to make the best out of it and luckily the crowd was very understanding and we ended up having a real good night/morning. Well you can judge yourself by checking out the set. Now that you have all the four parts you could even put them together into a playlist and listen to the whole set with seamless transitions. One major reason for me to upload the set to #AMFM was, that those who were there should be able to have the opportunity to listen again… and loud… enjoy..

This week´s AM/FM is the second hour of a 4h Collabs live set, that Speedy J and myself played on June 3rd at the Weather Festival in Paris. I got to know Jochem Paap from Rotterdam aka Speedy J first time back in 2000 when I asked him to remix a track for me. Back then he has already been a legend for all of us, with his outstanding knowledge and ability of making amazing electronic music. Just check out his discography and it'll blow your mind. So after he agreed to do a remix for me, he also performed one of his super-energetic live sets at a monthly night I ran in a club in Frankfurt called the U60311. We started to be more in touch, and one time in Frankurt, when he played a live set before me and was just about to finish, I kind of started to mix into the end of his live act, which encouraged him to not stop and play along. As much as I remember we continued like this for about half an hour, and looking back, this was kind of our first Collabs set ever. From this moment on we started to do this more and more and also started thinking about some sort of new setup that would give us more potential to recreate music live together. At that time we kind of morphed my DJ set up with his live setup. When we were about to start our first little Collabs tour, which happened to be in Australia, we spend a whole night in an apartment in Melbourne, the day before the gig, trying to find the best way to connect all of our equipment. Since both of us worked with kind of the latest hardware and software provided by Native Instruments and Ableton back in the days, all this was quite adventurous, and looking back we learned a lot by doing this. Our individual setups today are essentially the follow-ups of these early developments. Working closely with Allen & Heath as well as Native Instruments during that time really started to push the limits of what we can do. I do remember our first "official" Collabs gig in Melbourne was quite fun and interesting... and also very sweaty and rock and roll. Maybe someone who was there back then reads this now, if so please report in the comments ;) I think that was around 2003 or 2004. Around 2005 we started working on an album, which was released in 2006 on Nova Mute. It is called Metalism, for those who might wanna check it out. 10 years ago, things were a little faster. Working together with Speedy J in his studio was an amazing journey for me, not only that I got to spend loads of time in Rotterdam, I also learned so much from him… and still do. After 2008/09 we played less Collabs gigs and concentrated more on our own brands. Jochem started his very innovative and successful label and party series Electric Deluxe. We still play Collabs shows, but only about 2-3 selected ones per year. Funny is that we have the feeling that our gigs get a better flow every time we play. Last year´s Awakenings Festival was definitely in our top 3 gigs ever. Keep an eye out on Electric Deluxe, `cause that set might be published there soon too. More Collabs gigs are in the planning, and who knows, maybe one day we sneak back into the studio and do a follow up to Metalism…. until then, I hope you enjoy these 4 Collabs episodes on AM/FM.

This week´s set is the second hour of 4 hours that I played at one of the most prolific, relevant and fun clubs in Italy (which basically means in the world, as Italy is the country with the biggest history of clubs, or as I like to say with an over 2000 years long history of running events and parties). Il Muretto is in Jesolo, near Venice and every time it is quite an experience to be there, not to mention to play there. This date was not any different, or wait, somehow it was, as I felt that in all the years that I played there, I seem to get to know the club better and better, and that leads to an even more intense experience every time. This was maybe the biggest night I played there yet and I am happy to realize that I continue to say that after each gig at Il Muretto. Maybe this time it was due to the fact I had a 6h tattoo session the day before or because it was Easter Sunday and my 4th gig in a row after coming back to Europe from Miami and LA?! No matter what made it so amazing again, I can only say Grazie Mille over and over again for those good times in Italy! Hope you enjoy these 4h.

This week´s AMFM show is the last hour and 45 minutes of my set that I played in Teramo Italy at the Warehouse Alternative Club (https://www.facebook.com/warehousealternativeclub). It was the fourth gig in a row on a weekend that already started on Thursday in Moscow with a @boiler room show, that you can actually re-watch on my facebook page. Friday I headed back to Germany, to play two clubs in one night, the Bootshaus in Cologne and later the good old Butan Club in Wuppertal till early in the morning. Since travelling to Teramo is not the easiest thing (not really any major airport anywhere near), we were flying from Düsseldorf to Rome and had another 3h car ride, to finally arrive at the Warehouse on Saturday night. So kind of tired and also still jetlagged from my 3 weeks in the states before, you sometimes are not sure how a gig will turn out, but the energy in Teramo even made me play longer in the end and I had again a fantastic time in one of my favorite countries ever. I hope you enjoy listening to the set as much as I had fun playing it. Now you could also put all four parts into a playlist and listen to the whole thing with seamless transitions. Thanks to the best fans in the world, you always push me to give it all…

This week´s #AMFM is the third and last hour of my set at Guendalina club in the south of Italy on July 29th 2017. For about 15 years now I have had the pleasure to play on a regular basis in Italy, but never played at that beautiful open air club before. For me this Saturday, July 29th, had 3 gigs planned. I started at the playdifferent stage at Tomorrowland and afterwards I flew directly to Stuttgart airport, where they sadly had some repairs on the runway, which caused some heavy delays, making me miss my gig at the @wetfestival. Things like this can happen and are beyond anyone´s control, yet they are really frustrating, not only for me, also I believe for all of the people waiting at the event. Luckily my good friend Dubfire was willing to fill in and what I heard he smashed it. After all, the trip continued and I arrived a little late, but very psyched to play at Guendalina. And what a good time we had, what a beautiful place and what an amazing crowd. South of Italy never disappoints in the summer. I am so blessed and thankful for these moments. Grazie Mille once more. For those of you who glue the weekly AMFM hours together, I need to tell you that due to the fact that my set was just a little short of 3h, I needed to overlap the 2nd and the 3rd hour to make it fit for three shows. So if you really wanna fit it together, be aware that the first 15 min of the 3rd hour are the same as the last 15 min of the 2nd hour. Sorry for this inconvenience, but I couldn’t find any other way. Hope you will enjoy the set as much as I did playing it …

This week´s AMFM is the second hour of my 2h set at the Movement Festival in Detroit. The memorial day weekend in the States has been since many years now the weekend when the techno world travels to Detroit. It has always been a very special date in my calendar for many reasons and it also is the time of year when the summer season is upon us. This year I had the pleasure to close the Pyramid stage on the last day of the festival. The weather was warm, but a bit cloudy with chances of wind and rain. Which id did. Not too long into my set. Not only rain, also stormy winds that almost blew my equipment away. The amazing stage crew managed to keep stuff dry, holding plastic covers over me. Somehow everything that was happening did not disturb me at all, it became actually more fun. As it started raining I played my little edit of Josh Wink’s track “Resist” and told the one stage manager who was trying to keep everything dry, that the rain will stop as soon as the track is over. Funny that it then happened that way. You might hear it on the recording. I wanna thank the audience for not running from the weather, but rather kept partying even harder, the wetter it got. You sometimes throw around the phrase “this was magic”... but those were magic moments indeed, having the Detroit sykline behind you, looking over the Detroit River, this amazing crowd and fun with the weather. I really enjoyed that set and I am happy to present it here, so you can relive it, in case you were there, or check it out in case you weren’t. In any case, I hope you enjoy it. And thanks again to the whole Paxahau crew, who produces this amazing festival. Been sleeping in their basement back in 2000 and so happy to see what they are achieving. Love you all!

This week´s AMFM is the ninth and last hour and a half of a 9.5h set that I played at Concrete in Paris on May 7th 2017. The French Techno scene has had a revival as big as I haven’t really seen it before in any other countries. Since about 5-6 years France has managed to really come back into the circle of countries where Techno and House music play a major cultural role. By now there are many amazing events and clubs all over France and one major driver of that scene and one of the places to be, is the club Concrete in Paris. This is not the first podcast of mine that comes out of this beautiful club on a boat on the river Seine. I have been playing Concrete regularly in the past years and enjoyed every minute of it. I also played many all night long gigs, but nothing like this one beginning of May. Now that the club has a license to stay open longer, I was told a week before, that I could play till 9:30 in the morning if I wanted to, starting of course at midnight, when the main floor opens. Besides the fact that I love playing opening sets (you will see me doing this for HYTE in Ibiza a couple of times again in the main room of Amnesia this summer), it is something special at Concrete. Once the doors open, it only takes about 10-20 min, till the place is packed, so not much time to fool around in the beginning, but also not to smash it right away, since you know you have another 9h to go. Playing those long sets is always an adventure, you never know where you end up and you are subject to many different factors. I did prepare a little more than usual for this gig, so I picked some special old goodies and had them in mind to drop them here and there. Let´s see if you can spot them. This night, I must say, went incredibly well, but that is not only due to the nice staff and promoters, it is mostly thanks to that open minded beautiful audience, that is willing to join you on a journey through the night - as cheesy that might sound now - but that ´s what it is. So I hope you enjoy this long ride right here on AMFM in the next weeks. Remember, you get one hour each week and after 9 weeks, you will have the whole set, with only little of my talking, as I give you most info here in my set report. I wanna thank the Paris Clubbers again for pushing me through such a long night with such a great vibe. Concrete rocks and I can’t wait to be back. Now that you have all the parts of the set you could even put them together in a playlist and listen to the whole thing with seamless transitions. Comments always welcome :) Enjoy!
