Housefreqs Radio – BLCK_DJ

BL.CK is a Frankfurt-based DJ and producer whose life from an early age revolved around music. His ear for a catchy beat developed through drum-playing in his early years and quickly developed into an attraction to not only acoustic beats but also the rhythmic sound of electronic music. It was then that BL.CK moved on to mastering the use of turntables to play the music he soon discovered he loved.These days BL.CK’s style encompasses a spectrum of music which ranges from dark, traditional techno to bright, funky, trippy, vocal-based tech house. His belief that ‘Groove is the key to happiness’ is the theme which runs through both his musical productions and his mixes; he is always in search of sounds with a certain je ne sais quoi which make the listener sit up and pay attention to incorporate in his musical ventures.“Music is as personal as it gets; it’s not about just hearing the music… it’s about feeling it.”For BL.CK connecting music with emotions and understanding this connection in order to generate sounds to get people dancing is key to both his productions and mixes.In 2017 BL.CK founded DOPECODEDTECH RECORDS; this ‘all about the music’ label is hopefully going to become a music ‘home’ for all of you Techno and Techhouse lovers out there.

I’m a DJ / Producer based in Hackney in East London. My exposure to music came at an early age listening to the radio and playing percussion and my first contact with parties and DJ’ing came when I was asked by a school friend to help select the music for the party he was playing at. My musical education continued throughout my teens listening to disco, pop, reggae, dub, world music, rock, dance and drum and bass. Eventually house music was to dominate all other genres.

It was only a question of time until I turned my attention to djing. the move came after I picked up a pair of second hand belt drive turntables and started teaching myself to mix, after a while and with a group of friends, we formed the deep jam collective and started gigging in bars and small clubs in London.

Since then I joined a couple of London radio station which gave me the opportunity to play regularly and to further develop my style. The move to production came as a natural progression for me. My first single ‘Roots’ came out in January 2016 soon to be followed by ‘We Dance’, both released on the suiss label MusicXplosion while my debut single for 247House ‘Fire on the floor’ came out in June 2016 followed by ‘Dance to the death’ and ‘No ordinary man’.
