DJ Rush verkörpert den Techno aus Chicago wie kaum ein anderer.
Die Disco- und Blues-Platten in seinem Elternhaus inspirierten und bewogen ihn bereits mit 10 Jahren zum Ausprobieren und herumspielen hinter den Decks. Den ersten Plattenspielern folgten Mitte der 80er Gigs auf High-School Partys. Diese Phase ließ ihn nicht mehr los und ist auch heute noch in seinen Sets zu hören. DJ Rush unterlag als Techno-DJ einer stetigen Entwicklung, die bezogen auf Clubkultur ihren Ursprung in Disco- und House-Allnightern in und um Chicago und in der Tradition von Franky Knuckles und Lil Louis hatte. Seine Veröffentlichungen auf den legendären Techno und Ghetto-House Labels Relief und Dance Mania aus den frühen bis mittleren Neunzigern gelten heute als Klassiker. 1996 bedeutete den großen Umbruch. Nicht nur gehörte das Jahr mit Veröffentlichungen auf Traxx, Djax-up Beats, Force Inc. Music Works oder seinem eigenen Label Kne'Deep zu den produktivsten seiner Karriere, gleichzeitig siedelte er auch von Chicago nach Berlin über, das er noch immer seine zweite Heimat nennt.
Seitdem prägte er den Sound der Stadt kontinuierlich mit und sorgte für entsprechenden Einfluss aus der Windy City, denn soundtechnisch ist er sich immer treu geblieben. Seine

DJ-Sets strotzen vor Energie sowie annähernd 30 Jahren Erfahrung, mit der er als Headliner etwa auf der Loveparade oder auf seinen zahlreichen Tourneen ganze Massen in Ekstase versetzen konnte. Besonders markant ist dabei die enorme Vielseitigkeit, durch die er immer noch zu überraschen weiß. Experimente und wildeste Genre-Sprünge hat er nie gescheut. Nach Shall We Dance? erscheint nun mit Dance To The Drums nach beinahe 17 Jahren Abstinenz sein nächstes Album und es fühlt sich an wie eine Zeitreise in die Southside. Original Chicago Techno. DJ Rush hat nichts verlernt.

DJ Rush embodies the Techno of Chicago like no other.
The disco and blues albums in his parents home inspired and moved him from the age of 10 years to try and play around behind the decks. The first record players followed in mid-80s gigs at high school parties. This phase didn't let go of him and can still be heard in his sets. DJ Rush was a techno-DJ of a steady development based on club culture, originating in disco and house all-nighters in and around Chicago, in the tradition of Franky Knuckles and Lil Louis. His releases on the legendary techno and ghetto house labels Relief and Dance Mania from the early to mid-nineties are now regarded as classics. 1996 marked the great upheaval. Not only was the year the most productive of his career with releases on Traxx, Djax-up Beats, Force Inc., and his own label Kne'Deep. At the same time, he moved from Chicago to Berlin, which he still regards his second home.
Since then, he has continued to contribute to the sound of the city, bringing his influence from the Windy City, and always remaining true to his sound. His DJ sets are bursting with energy as well as almost 30 years of experience, with which he could bring ecstasy as headliner at the Loveparade or on his numerous tours. Particularly striking is the enormous versatility through which he's still able to surprise. He never shies away from experiments and wild genre jumps. To Shall We Dance? now appears with Dance To The Drums after almost 17 years of abstinence his next album and it feels like a time trip to the Southside. Original Chicago Techno. DJ Rush hasn't forgotten anything.

(english text below)

Was für ein enorm versatiler DJ- und Produzent Daniel Stefanik ist, hat er in seiner über 20-jährigen Karriere zu genüge unter Beweis gestellt. 4 Alben, unter anderem für Cocoon und eine grandiose 3x12 Compilation für Kann (unbedingt reinhören!) schlagen genauso zu Buche wie eine Residency in der Leipziger Distillery. Stilistisch irgendwo zwischen House und Techno zu verorten hat sich Stefanik nie einer festen Nische verschrieben. Der rote Faden war, wenn überhaupt eine jackende, groovende Komponente, die seine Arbeit seit jeher durchzieht. Mit seinen Wegbegleitern Matthias Tanzmann und Mathias Kaden kreuzt er dabei stetig die Wege. Letzterer wird dieses Jahr im Rahmen von Stefaniks neuem Album Teil einer Back To Back Tour sein, die Jazz-Produktionen mit Modularsystemen und akustischer Begleitung einfängt. Wir dürfen gespannt sein, was er sich am heutigen Abend für uns ausgedacht hat. Unterstützung gibt es von Damage Music Mastermind Alexander Kowalski alias d_func sowie Alexander Lukat.

----

Daniel Stefanik has proven time and again what an enormously versatile DJ and producer he is in his over 20-year career. 4 albums, including for Cocoon and a terrific 3x12” compilation for Kann (listen to it!) having as much of an effect as a residency at the Distillery, Leipzig. Stylistically somewhere between house and techno, Stefanik has never dedicated himself a solid niche. The common thread was, if at all, a jacking, grooving component that has always worked its way through. With his companions Matthias Tanzmann and Mathias Kaden, he constantly crosses musical paths. The latter will be part of a Back To Back tour as part of Stefanik's new album this year, capturing jazz productions with modular systems and acoustic accompaniment. We are looking forward to what he comes up with for us this evening. Support comes from Damage Music mastermind Alexander Kowalski aka d_func and Alexander Lukat.

Dear friends, artists, journalists and supporters,

We are planing a big charity event on Wednesday, 25.04.2018 from 22.00 at Suicide Circus for the family of our friend and artist Mike Wall who recently passed away suddenly.
All proceeds from the night will go towards helping his wife and two young children.
In addition, we will be continuing on with his own series of events WALLS in his spirit and a fixed share of that will regularly go to the family.
Since 2009, Mike Wall has been resident DJ in Suicide and for 2 years he was also busy with the bookings.
His label Wall Music already has over 70 releases and his Walls series of events has brought countless international artists to Berlin.
He himself was very active as DJ Mike Wall and also a prolific producer.

Merci,

What does a good club night actually look like? The almost claustrophobic atmosphere, the sweaty bodies heaving together at the gate to the underworld. A hint of musk is in the air. You move through the labyrinth of corridors as through the buds of a flower to enjoy the subtlety of detail here and there. The brutal concrete floor glowing in the semi-darkness, the gleaming oak ceiling panel shimmering at different heights, while above the scene the gigantic mirror-ball floated the room into a glittering sea of sparkle - accessible and perceptible. Please stay discreet! Axhan Sonn, Desolato and Lucindo are responsible for the soundtrack, which takes place in the distinguished ambience of the nightly theme park. It will be Techno, rugged and edgy. Industrial, acid, breaks and a hint of ambient for the big stunt.

Michael Placke
In order to dance this irresistible dj occupied banks in Berlin, used the wall socket to plugg in the soundsystem and yanked up the fader. He named it „Reclaim the Sparkasse“ and gathered huge crowds on this wild occasions. He cultivated a passion for parties in unused places and squated bunkers, undergroundstations, abandoned houses, park areas and glades in the municipal woods. People came from everywhere and went crazy in this unsuspected new freedom. At its peak he got the opportunity to start regular parties in clubs. He is the founder of „Exquisite Berlin“, „WE STILL KILL THE OLD WAY“ and „Encore Une Fois“.
Also whilst performing he creates new spaces. His techno sets are mindblowing and on going for ever. His style is to be described as provokingly severe and affectionately focused. He loves playing endless closing sets, melting the brains in energetic sanctums.
