Renowned for making strong connections between early 80s hip hop, post disco, early chicago house and all things funk related. This mix is a selection of his own hip hop based house edits, future soul, 80s funk, obscure house and weirdo techno business.

Video: Making the Berlin Boombox
See how the Berlin Boombox is being produced. Join us on our trip to various production facilities around Berlin. Our local manufacturers put all their knowledge and passion into the creation of this cardboard ghettoblaster.
We visit the printing workshop, the cardboard cutting and assembly factory and the sheltered workshop for people with disabilities where quality control of the electronic components and final assembly is done.
Thanks to Jordan Katz for the video.
