This was my artist year in music, according to Spotify. What can I say? I´m thrilled! The stats are looking great! There´s an all over increase, from streams to listeners to countries and the crazy amount of hours my music has been listened to on all four corners of the globe, from Peru to Indonesia, from Alaska to New Zealand and everywhere in between.

Thanks for tuning in, thanks for following me!

I´m very much looking forward to 2023, when I´ll release a new string of singles. And I´m particurlarly excited for spring, when my fourth album "Sonido Lava" will be released. Hope to see you on the road somewhere in 2023, it´s time to party again!

"Magma", the second single from my upcoming album "Sonido Lava", is putting pressure on the dancefloor. With a set of string stabs, a rolling UK funky inspired beat and a surprise bossa nova breakdown , "Magma" is a hot DJ tool ready to get clubs in volcanic excitement.

Besides its dancefloor heat production, "Magma" and its music video, directed by Polish artist , reflect on the current, multi crisis moment we´re living through. It´s like we´re living in magma times, gliding on a fluid ground to uncertainty, not knowing whether our future will be hellish or if mankind still manages to let reason reign. Maybe it´s also likely that on the cooled parts of the former magma, fruitful ground will emerge, giving life to new hopes and possibilites. After all, Magma is deep underneath all our feet.

"Magma", the second single from my upcoming album "Sonido Lava" is out today on Man Recordings

With a set of string stabs, a rolling UK funky inspired beat and a surprise bossa nova breakdown , "Magma" is a hot DJ tool ready to get clubs in volcanic excitement.

Besides its dancefloor heat production, "Magma" and its music video, directed by Polish artist Kinga Kielczynska, reflect on the current, multi crisis moment we´re living through. Because it´s like we´re living in magma times, gliding on a fluid ground to uncertainty, not knowing whether our future will be hellish or if mankind still manages to let reason reign. Maybe destruction will not prevail as it´s also likely that on the cooled parts of the former magma, fruitful ground will emerge, giving life to new hopes and possibilites. After all, magma is deep underneath all our feet.

Happy to announce the release of my new single "La Mujer Dormida" featuring Berlin based, Chilean singer 𝑀𝒜𝐿𝒜𝒢Ü𝐸𝑅𝒜] on the microphone.

“La Mujer Dormida” (“The sleeping woman”) is inspired by a volcano in Mexico called Iztaccíhuatl, between the state of Mexico and Puebla. This volcano also received the name “The sleeping woman", because its form resembles the one of a woman lying on her back. In Aztec mythology, Iztaccíhuatl was a princess who died in grief waiting for her beloved and the gods turned her into a volcano covered in snow.

The song lyrics of “La Mujer Dormida” are also based on the poem "Volcán Osorno" by Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral, in which she admires the Osorno volcano and its surrounding landscapes, near lake Llanquihue, in the very south of the huge Latin American continent. In the song lyrics, 𝑀𝒜𝐿𝒜𝒢Ü𝐸𝑅𝒜] talks as if she was in love with the flame mountain, admiring and adoring it, getting intoxicated by its beauty, its landscape and powerful force.

This is the first single from my upcoming, fourth album "Sonido Lava" scheduled for a spring 2023 release on

The days are getting shorter, and temperatures are dropping in Northern Europe, so no better moment to bring back my Tropical Picks playlist series on Spotify after a little while.

The newest edition features some tunes I´m currently digging by artists such as Poirier M3B8 Lokowat BankrollBk Natoxie Dj Smallz 732 Deize Tigrona amongst others. Plus the mad funny baile funk version of "Smalltown Road" as well as my recent production "Pau" and my remix for Berlin´s La Byle , and last but not least a vintage bass gem by Captain Bubbles from the still highly recommended, visionary Bazzerk compilation from 2011 by Jess & Crabbe / Bazzerk

Just returned from a trip that went Berlin-Munich-Florence-Napoli-Capri and back. It took me 2 travel days and 2 nightly stop overs but it was a beautiful journey showing that DJ travel by train is a great, much more relaxed alternative to flying within continental Europe.

Italian fast train network Frecciarossa were the quickest and most relieable, Austrian Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB)had the best food. But the greatest thing were seeing all the shifting landscapes on the trip, especially while riding on the train smoothly through the Alps and through the vast vineyards of South Tyrol.

After this trip it became clear to me that any destination within continental Europe within a max 15hr reach could be done by train. Unfortunately for me as a Berliner, this excludes Spain and Portugal, but things are looking good for a growing EU fast train network.

The Co2 footprint my trip produced the equivalent to 90kg CO2, a flight for the same route would have produced 500kg CO2.

27/05/2022

I´m super happy to annuonce the release of my new single "Pau", released on my label Man Recordings today. It´s a baile funk inspired track that fuses European electronica melodies with the big, saucy beats from Rio De Janeiro, which seem to pop up left and right in clubs and radios at the moment. For me, having promoting baile funk culture since the early 2000´s with my “Rio Baile Funk Favela B***y Beats” compilations and the output on my label, it´s a musical return to my roots.

The track is inspired by a recent Rio visit, where I had a daily view from my room at of Rio´s famous landmark, the sugar loaf mountain ("Pão De Acuçar" in Portuguese). Morning, day and night, I could observe the many colors and shades that would put the surrounding landscape of the sugar loaf mountain in a constant, fascinating change of lights (as illustrated in the accompanying music video for “Pau”).

The result of these inspiring moments led to the creation of “Pau”, which also embodies the various faces of Rio, the happy and joyful city of beaches, beautiful landscapes and elegance, as well as the dark and sinister sides of social inequality and inner city violence. The track´s title is of equal duality. It´s a word play between the Portuguese word for “Pão” meaning “loaf of bread” and the Brazilian portuguese slang word for the male ge***al, pronounced almost equally, but written “Pau”. As in life, the meanings of things, words, lights always have two sides.

Spring has arrived in Europe and the Northern hemisphere, so my label and I decided it´s time to relaunch our much sought after t-shirts !

We kick off with the Funk Mundial logo, illustrating the now legendary 10 volumed Funk Mundial vinyl series from 2005 to 2009, where bass music producers from around the world teamed up with baile funk MCs from Rio. Conceived by yours truly, the Funk Mundial series envisioned baile funk as a global sound at a time when the sound was still strictly confined to Rio De Janeiro.

Fast forward to 2022, with artists such as Anitta, Pablo Vittar or Tropkillaz a household name in the pop charts around the world, the Funk Mundial t-shirt displays OG knowledge.

Available in white on black or black on white, sizes available, S, M, L, XL, XXL.
T-Shirts are boxy and made from 100% organic cotton.

Since the shirt is made to order, please allow delivery time of three weeks.

Get the t-shirt from our Bandcamp merch shop!
Modeled by DJ Pureza of Salvador De Bahia, BR

On this day, four years ago, I went to the studio w/ Coco Maria for the very first time to record her vocal contributions for "La Añoranza". It would later become the leading track on my 2019 album "With Love, From Berlin". It was Coco´s first ever day in a recording studio and she was well excited yet very shy to record her voice. At the beginning of the recordings, she even asked me and my engineer Jamie Anderson to leave the studio so she could sing parts of "La Añoranza" without our presence. Later on, Coco got more confident and we both sang different passages together, recording her bit by bit. In a second session later that week, we finalised the recording.

Fast forward to 2022 and Coco has turned into one of the main radio presenters on Gilles Peterson´s Worldwide FM and is now a much booked and celebrated DJ who performs around the world. But most of all, our collaboration "La Añoranza", with additional contributions from Dengue Dengue Dengue and Ori Kaplan turned into a radio hit and was by now streamed more than 800.000 times on Spotify. Thanks to all involved!

I´m pretty stoked that my new "Baile Das Antigas" mix ramped up more than 500 plays on Soundcloud within 24hs, thanks for tuning in!

For my mix, I went through more than one hundred funk vinyls, which I´ve collected since I first travelled to Brazil in 2003. While initially I was mostly scoring bootleg CDs from Rio´s street markets, I always had an eye on funk vinyls which in the early 2000s were often tossed away for a couple of R$ on flea markets. By now, they´re in demand for vinyl collectors. On my recent trip in January I was stunned to see some of the vintage funk albums fetching up to 200 or 300 R$, e.g. the Cidinho E Doca album "Eu Só Quero É Ser Feliz" is especially in demand and now fetches up to 400 R$ in good condition.

As some people were already asking where I got some of my tracks from for the "Baile Das Antigas" mixtape, here´s some photos of the covers, so you could look out for them.

1. V.A. "Equipe Super Quente" (Label: Fama) features "Bananeira Rap" and "Melô Da Violeta" by DJ Raphael + Tony

2. V.A. "Papa Tudo Do Funk" (No label) features "Montagem Baile Nosso"

3. V.A. "Funkmania" (BMG Brasil) features "Rap Do Sapo" by MC Azoy

4. V.A. "Pipo´s Econtro Da Massa" (Pipo´s) features Mc Mascote E Nenem´s "Rap Do C***o"

“Baile das Antigas” (“Vintage Funk Parties”) have been very popular in Brazil lately, with a new generation of music listeners discovering the vast and complex musical history of baile funk. As a genre, it emerged in Rio de Janeiro in the late 1980s, mixing up Miami bass, atabaque rhythms, LA techno hop, latin freestyle, euro house, ebm and rap into an irresistible mash up. The recent success of Brazilian producer Vhoor´s album “Baile” and particularly the “Se Tá Solteira” single - all referring to the early days of funk - have proven that the old sound is currently the newest s**t.

For my “Baile Das Antigas” mix I digged deep in my collection of funk vinyls, which I´ve collected in all those years travelling to Brazil. Having not listened to many of the funk vinyls from my vault for years, I discovered amazing tracks which I never knew I had! E.g. I never knew that the 1992 rave classic “A Fine Day” by Opus III was big in the Rio funk scene. Most of all however I was thrilled to discover various traces of Kraftwerk sounds in various tracks, proving the continuous musical conexão Alemañha – Brazil!

My selection is covering a release span from 1988 to 1999 and the majority of tracks I put in my mix can´t be found on any music streaming platforms or online shops, hence the crackling vinyl sounds on numerous tracks. The mix features, amongst others, rare tracks from Grandmaster Raphael, the great Cashmere rework of Trio´s “Da Da Da”, various montagems and the OG track by DJ Emerson which first used the Dire Straits sax sample that pops up in funk tracks until today. Check it out!
