I really am a Nerd, Programmer, Entrepreneur and shit.
But I grew up with the Demoscene and Happy Hardcore,
both of which keeping me alive and happy.
As next to no-one is promoting UK Hardcore (as it is called today) anymore,
I've decided it is time to try to learn how to DJ and get people dancing to it again.
So - while I am not a proper DJ (but I am trying to improve!), you still may enjoy the
UK Hardcore DJ sets I have played at various demopartys and, since recently, also
"proper" Hardcore dance events.
Ich bin all das wovor Dich Deine Eltern immer gewarnt haben
This is a UK Hardcore DJ set I have played at the "Deadline 2021" "demoparty" (some sort of computer art event). After all these months of lock-down, I finally had been able to play in front of a (small) live audience again. \o/
With extreme Anti-Corona measures in July my friends at Emergenzy finally had been able to combine a live-streaming event with having a hand-selected limited amount of real-life Hardcore nuts dancing on-site again. I had the honor to be able to play yet another set for them.
For the first time I had been using my freshly hand-programmed sampler gear which is supposed to enable me to do some beat mash-ups. Still quite a few glitches, but I think this does have some potential for future sets.
Please note that the video includes scamp insulting the dancers via microphone, while the Soundcloud and MP3 versions do not. Also there is a minute of the video missing somewhere in the middle.
I've played this set for the live stream of the Emergenzy guys in May 2020. As they had to cancel their real-life events due to the Corona outbreak, they instead did some online streaming sessions with various DJs from the Hardcore/Hardtek scene. I've been there for scaring off the kids representing the more cheesy side of Hardcore. With this set social distancing guaranteed.
This is the recording of the live stream, straight from my living room.
All of my sets are available for streaming on Soundcloud
