    TIME WARP | Mannheim  Germany, April 1, 2023

    Time Warp 2023 was spectacular, too commercial, too crowded, too histrionic, and proof that the underground sound of Techno is way better and stronger than so called “Business Techno” (external link) and that being a great DJ takes experience. This is what we did 22:00-00:00 KOBOSIL – FLOOR 1 We started here KOBOSIL was fine…
