Sascha Ring (AKA Apparat) has released an amazing album in 2019 titled LP5. I’m definitely planning on scoring some tickets for his band’s show in Berlin during their Live European Tour. I’m a good friend of the group’s cellist; he contributed some sounds to my second-to-last LP. Apparat’s band is just pure art.

The young and talented producer Ben Böhmer has one of the most compelling live acts in Berlin right now. He recently released a fantastic debut album on Anjunadeep called Breathing. I feel honored that I had the chance to work with him on it. I believe we are planning on cooking up some new tunes together in the future. By the way, his world-tour concert in Berlin is nearly sold out, so you better run and get a ticket!

I’m a big fan of Giorgia Angiuli‘s melodic productions and unique approach to live performance. I was so happy when she played at my night at Heart Ibiza last season. I’m not sure, but I think she is finishing her new album soon. I’m certainly looking forward to giving it a listen!

No words needed here. It’s always breathtaking when you hear the sounds that come out of this man’s mind. Stephan Bodzin has earned a lifetime’s worth of my respect.

Rodriguez Jr is one of the best deep house producers and live performers I’ve ever seen. Also, it doesn’t hurt that he’s such a handsome guy. We played together two times recently. It’s always a very inspiring experience.
All the live acts I meet backstage at various shows and festivals are such wonderful and creative people. There are tons of other phenomenal live electronic performers that deserve honorable mentions here as well, such as Kiasmos, Satori, HVOB, Monolink, Rampue, Parallels, Maga, and Bob Moses, just to name a few.
