Hazy Pockets

Hazy Pockets Cowboy-conjurer, dedicated disco dilettante, Berlin DJ by way of Texas and California.

Joel Isaac Black is a memorable, if not divisive figure, a tireless soul man preaching boogie music in a robotic techno town. Hazy Pockets’ marathon sets steal from the best and give to both the rich and poor, ecstatic dancing for the raver kids and the suits, human-level soul music at the club. In his last years as both DJ and chef at Berlin’s Kater Holzig and Kater Blau clubs and Fame/Katerschmaus restaurant, Joel’s primary calling has been honing a rigorous instinct for performance and service, often the both combined. Long nights in the open kitchen, riding the pulse of a packed house of fine diners, followed by even longer Berlin club nights, pushing dancers into soulful ecstasy with relentless disco-house, acid-funk, and blues-stomp, Joel is a worker dedicated to his craft. Your enjoyment. It’s working-class blues, drinking music, it’s oh-my-god-we-work-so-hard-we’re-gonna-have-a-good-time-tonight music! Joel was born in Texas to a blues musician father, harmonica and swamp guitar his lullabies. Moving out West to L.A, working first as a rock ’n’ roll drummer, and later a studio owner and producer, Joel continued to chase that certain guttural, soulful sound he was introduced to at an early age. Arriving in Berlin, re-baptised at the discotheque, he is still seeking those uplifting, funky moments to this day, albeit in maximal dance floor form. Drawing upon a decade of crate-digging and curating a world-renowned vinyl store in Los Angeles, drumming for an array of West-Coast pop-rock supernovas, Hazy Pockets’ music arsenal is extremely diverse, a conscious love-letter to both the undeniable pop hooks and the obscure dirty bass counterparts. Funky-disco-acid house in subtle winks and deliberate bounce, but all imbued with a human funkiness that shakes it all loose.

Come join us in the Eden around the fire for another warm night of lively conversations, meeting new people from around the world, and all the excitement and cathartic relief dancing to the feral grooves of Woody from Heideglühen Berlin; and the frantic beats of Ako Von Unten from Mzesumzira Records, Tbilisi.

Since an auspicious birthday cracker at Jackie O Berlin a few years back (foto!) we‘ve been very lucky to collide here and there more often for some elevated boom-boom. Don’t miss us all night under the arch. 😉🍄

°o∞° QUALITY CAST °∞o°

We’re launching our new podcast-series today 💥

👍 https://soundcloud.com/quality-time-booking/breakbeat01_nadine

These unique recordings are made to order!
On a weekly basis we will publish our artists’ sonic interpretations of a specific genre chosen spontaneously.

This prompt is selected randomly, picked blindly out of a hat by the highest authority: The regulars at our family table.

How does one’s individual taste express itself within unfamiliar, formerly rejected, or unappreciated parameters?
Who is the lucky one enjoying a throwback to adolescence or a long neglected affection?
We are challenging the self-imposed monotony and static nature of musical preference - by restraint.

Please enjoy with us now the power of specification.

The first cast is by Nadine. She has a run these days and we like it! Breakbeat it is!

Hazy Pockets née Joel Isaac Black

DJ • TV/Film Music Supervisor • Bless your little heart. Hazy Pockets has just rode into town. Cowboy-conjurer, dedicated disco dilettante, Berlin DJ by way of Texas and California, Joel Isaac Black is a memorable, if not divisive figure, a tireless soul man preaching boogie music in a robotic techno town. Hazy Pockets’ marathon sets steal from the best and give to both the rich and poor, ecstatic dancing for the raver kids and the suits, human-level soul music at the club.

In his last years as both DJ and chef at Berlin’s Kater Holzig and Kater Blau clubs and Katerschmaus restaurant, Joel’s primary calling has been honing a rigorous instinct for performance and service, often the both combined. Long nights in the open kitchen, riding the pulse of a packed house of fine diners, followed by even longer Berlin club nights, pushing dancers into soulful ecstasy with relentless disco-house, acid-funk, and blues-stomp, Joel is a worker dedicated to his craft. Your enjoyment. It’s working-class blues, drinking music, it’s oh-my-god-we-work-so-hard-we’re-gonna-have-a-good-time-tonight music!

Joel Black (Hazy Pockets) was born in Texas to a blues musician father, harmonica and swamp guitar his lullabies. Moving out West to L.A, working first as a rock ’n’ roll drummer, and later a studio owner and producer, Joel continued to chase that certain guttural, soulful sound he was introduced to at an early age. Arriving in Berlin, re-baptised at the discotheque, he is still seeking those uplifting, funky moments to this day, albeit in maximal dance floor form.

Drawing upon a 15 years of crate-digging and curating a world-renowned vinyl record store in LosAngeles, Hazy Pocket’s music knowledge and skills as a sensitive and creative selector are unrivalled. His dance-music arsenal is extremely diverse, a conscious love-letter to both the undeniable pop hooks and the obscure dirty bass counterparts, it’s funky-disco-acid house, startling edits, and future boogie in subtle winks and deliberate bounce, but all imbued with a human funkiness that shakes it all loose.

Hazy Pockets is long-time resident DJ at the Kater Blau club in Berlin, a founding participant and resident at the Garbicz Festival in Poland. As resident DJ and programmer for the ‘BerlinSummer Air’ open-air party series at Jackie O Bar (SLOW/La Granja, Ibiza etc.) Now working with the Berlin-based ‘Quality Time Booking’ crew, Hazy Pockets continues to welcome a truly international DJ scene to his home in Berlin, and travel the world performing and programming/curating music events for clubs, festivals, and cultural events abroad.
