Rødhåd: Weaving Psychedelic Rhythms, the Hendrix of Techno Rødhåd, the revered German DJ and techno producer, transcends mere mention alongside techno greats.

    DVS1 at FVTVR  Paris March 15, 2024

    Both sophisticated and radical DVS1 always delivers, although the sound system and soundscape at FVTVR need work – something was wrong with the room acoustics and the clarity of the sound was quite muffled and distorted. DVS1 isn’t just a name in techno – it’s synonymous with innovation, influence, and an unwavering dedication to the…

    Positive Education Festival  Saint-Étienne, France 1-4 November 2023

    Expertly curated techno festival, the music was terrific and the sound systems impeccable – Positive Education is a really fabulous example of how festivals should be, with amazing artistic lightning and lasers used in a really minimal and subtitle way.

    Marcel Dettmann Rex Club Fri, 10 Nov 2023

     Marcel Dettmann at the Rex Club was very different than the last time we saw him in Paris. We liked very much some specific moments, housey, psychedelic, rappey, but did not find it as good as his other Paris set Marcel Dettmann brings intense techno beats to Carbone Club in January 2023 or the times…

D’Julz, a true craftsman behind the decks, took us on a sonic House music journey that transcended mere genres…

    DVS1 at Kilomètre 25 Paris October 21, 2023

    On October 21, 2023, DVS1 took to the decks at Kilometre 25 in Paris for a two-and-a-half-hour set that was nothing short of a masterclass in techno. The veteran DJ’s performance was electric, incredibly complex, and profound, proving once again that experience matters when it comes to delivering truly excellent techno music. From the moment…
