Every DJ has an artist who inspires them to do what they do and for me that artist is Ellen Allien. The Berlin based queen of techno has been on the scene since the early 90s and there is not one person in the techno scene that doesn’t know her name. Ellen’s music spoke to me as a young boy growing up in a city where techno wasn’t popular and I just happened to stumble onto her by accident at the time. She became the driving force behind the beginning stages of my passion for underground electronic music.
A few years ago I happened to stumble across the music of Evigt Mörker a techno producer based in Sweden. I instantly fell in love as soon as I heard his music, one thing that is important for me is that the music really takes me on a journey and gets my imagination running wild. Evigt’s music does just that, he has a techno sound like no other, the music sweeps you away into another world that is full of color and beautiful melodies.
How perfect that this track is named “Dishes & Wishes”. If I had to rank all my household chores from best to worst, washing dishes would always be at the top of my list. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that my legs are free to dance to whatever Deep House track is currently bumping out of my laptop speakers.
