DJing might be one of the most underrated art forms. Despite most people referring to it as “Have u been to the main room? The music is so good” or “Downstairs was so great before – now it’s ok.” It is not like the room is somehow magically spilling out beats on its own. There is a craftsman/woman responsible for creating that sound fabric. This person is called a DJ aka Disc Jockey but that sounds like a dude in a white polo shirt with spectacles running around with a ghetto blaster. So, let’s stick to DJ. Some of them tour the world, play festivals, go from Berghain, to Smartbar, to Fabric and earn thousands with each set. They have millions of fans, and followers on social media who celebrate them for being the musical tailors that they are. But, everybody starts somewhere, and no other city is such a career springboard for DJs as Berlin. With so many unheard names on various party flyers and endless people claiming they’re pure genius behind the decks, it’s hard to have the ones on your radar who are actual masters of their art and just that one ‘Klubnacht’ away from stardom.
So here’s a list of DJs who spin regularly in Berlin. They might not have endless followers on social media, thousands clicks on Soundcloud, or tour the globe (just yet) but their music selection will never let down any dance floor.
