Deep Passion #16 – DJ with Soul
DJ with Soul has always been a music enthusiast, primarily hooked on bands such as Depeche Mode and U2. However, in the mid-’90s he discovered a music genre which is still the biggest passion in his life – house music. This was mainly due to listening to radio shows like HR3 Clubnight as well as going to house clubs or collecting different kinds of DJ mixtapes, first and foremost influenced by DJs from the US and their particular sound, such as Jesse Saunders, Masters at Work and Terrence Parker. The latter would influence him most during his growth as a DJ, both in terms of music and skill.
In 2001, he decided to buy his first records in order to learn the art of mixing. Since then, he has become an enthusiastic vinyl collector and a DJ playing only vinyl in his sets. As a DJ, he has played at clubs, lounges and bars in different regions of Germany, such as Nachtcafé (Leipzig), Zooma (Plauen), Blumengold (Cologne) and Die Bank (Munich). When playing a set, his music comprises a wide variety of house music, especially funky, Latin, soulful and garage house.
Since 2010, DJ with Soul has also been focusing on music production, particularly on house music that comes from the heart and which has a warm sound as well as soulful elements. In 2016, he joined the Soulful House Collective Germany, a group of like-minded people such as DJs, producers and musicians, focusing on the same music as him – all true to the motto: „We love house!“
