"Eclectic Club Music"

This dude is crazy. Stacking 6 World Titles, 2 European and 8 national titles this young member of the Lordz Of Fitness Crew (Kid Fresh, Rasgunyado, Rafik and J-Bounce) is a small institution of it's own today, his greatest battle success being the 2007 DMC WORLD DJ CHAMPION title which he accomplished alongside superproducer Le Jad.
A Dj-Battle predator, clubrocker, scratch music pioneer and upcoming producer - Rafik covers every facette of his art in great variety.

Rafik offers a great variety of styles, be it eclectic club smashing blends, hip hop to breakbeat, rock to electro and a broad variety urban dance music. The technical finesse of a 6 time world champion heavyweight leaves no questions - and since he knows how to work that crowd, you better make sure your barometers are in shape!

Check out his newest mix for Faux Magazine. Enjoy...

Hate it, or love it Part II

Mmmh, I´m still in two minds about Uffies new single ` A.D.D. S.U.V.`. Produced by Mirwais, featuring vocals by Pharrell Williams. Nice beat, nice feature, but something is missing. Maybe to much electro-pop?! Should I hate it, or luv it?! I don´t know, so it`s your decision.

Uffie returns to the club scene this summer with A.D.D SUV a banging electro crunk monster that sees the Miami-born, Paris-based rapper and future icon, step up to front of the queue 6am hand in hand with fellow rhyme spinner Pharrell.

Poking fun at the rap fraternity's obsession with possessions, particularly their cars, Uffie was certain she wanted Pharell involved when the track was coming together; I was so excited when I was introduced to him in Tokyo a few years back that I knew if there was ever the right track I would have to ask him to be on it. This was that track and, fortunately, he said yes.

If the dream team of Madonna-collaborator Mirwais, rap-icon Pharrell and Parisian scene-makers Ed Banger wasn't enough, legendary house-giant Armand Van Helden took the track on a journey back to his roots with the Banging summer anthem remix that is currently hanging tough at No. 3 in the Beatport Charts. Not to leave the underground lacking, the UK's producer du jour, Hudson Mohawke (Warp) drops synthetic bleeps into a 2 step garage rhythm transforming the track into a thoroughly enjoyable and mind-bending trip through the electronic jungle.

All My Beloved Big Fat Monster Beats Party

This saturday! May, 29th @ A.R.M., Kassel

„You hear the bass and you say whoa!!!“

Wir haben uns drei Wochen lang in einen abgelegenen Hütte eingeschlossen, nicht um einen neuen Pabst zu wählen, sondern um die neusten Sommerhits für die frühste Weltmeisterschafts- Fanmeile bei der REWINDParty auszuwürfeln. Nach unzähligen Knobelrunden konnten wir nun weißen Rauch über dem A.R.M. aufsteigen lassen.


Auf riesigen Grossbildleinwänden könntet Ihr das erste Spiel der Deutschen Mannschaft auf der Fussballweltmeisterschaft 2010 anschauen, wenn es nicht erst zwei Wochen später beginnen würde. Also wird Euch nichts anderes übrig bleiben als auch am letzten Samstag im Mai wieder in den Tropen-Keller runterzugehen, um zusammen mit der derbsten Party-Crowd der Welt die Hütte abzureißen. Bis in die frühen Morgenstunden gibt’s eine Polonäse nach der anderen, also Sonnenbrille auf, Halstuch umbinden und die Schweißbänder überstreifen! In enger Zusammenarbeit mit unserem Beratern der ́Lehman Brothers Bank ́ konnten wir einen dicken Kredit aufnehmen, um unser Fantrikots Imperium weiter auszubauen. Eigentlich verballern wir solch eine Summe an nur einem Wochenende komplett für Schnaps, Zigaretten und Frauen. Doch dieses Mal haben wir irgendwie geschwächelt und einfach volltrunken angefangen neue T-Shirts drucken zu lassen. Nach unseren kläglichen Versuchen die Shirts mit offenem Mantel im Bergpark an den Mann zu bringen, haben wir uns wieder dazu durchgerungen, euch bei unseren Partys mit dieser exklusiven Rewind-Modelinie zu beglücken. Musikalisch untermalt wird das ganze wieder mit Perlen aus 80’s, Classic’s, Rare Grooves, Mash Ups und Bootybass, skandinavischen Disco-Hits, Baile Funk, Funk Carioca, Baltimore Club, Miami Bass, Electro, Rock und Soul bis hin zu HipHop-2.0 und Dingsbums.

Parken und Campen sind wie immer kostenlos!

Und nicht vergessen: 54, 74, 90, 2010!! Scha-la-la-la-laa-la-la-la!

I wear my sunglasses at the Fan-Meile – do you!?

Doors open at 23PM


No dress code

and here are some new moves to practice...
