#13 - How to Get Creative and Stay Creative w/ Biesmans
Synthesizers, surfboards and sampling... Joris Biesmans has a lot up his sleeve. He has earned his high Beatport rankings and signings at various hot labels over the last few years with his heavy retro beats, infused with synthesizer-fueled 80s disco melodies. It also gave him a spot on the Watergate agency roster, and this year was gonna be his year - until the Big C happened. We talked what he did to stay creative, his musical roots, and what it means for him to play 'live' sets. If you're a fan of retro house/techno or live sets, then look no further.

#12 - with Ina West
In this week's episode of Berlin Roundfunk, I'm talking to Ina West, whose latest album "Girls" is truly a work of wonder. She experiments with violins and guitars in an electronic environment where she writes the music for all of the instruments herself. Her inspiration she takes from her life; her time as a nanny in England is featured on "Tender Age", and when she meets her old roommate again, now stark naked and covered in red paint, she was inspired to write "Aurora". In short, she doesn't need long to amaze both her interviewer and, I hope, you too. She's vibrant, intense, and hypnotic, which finds expression in the darker songs of her album, sometimes with an underground techno-vibe. For everyone who would rather dance to her music in a club, she's promised us to play more gigs this year in clubs, as well as regular venues. Wanna know more? Check out the entire episode now!

#10 - How to Spice Things Up and Just Start Dancing w/ MIN t
This week I'm talking to Martyna, who is making music under the name MIN t. She's bringing out her new single, "Start Dancing", and that calls for an interview. From her wide range of musical influences to her eclectic performances, she is everything but ordinary. When asked, she calls her music "Experimental Electronic Neo Soul", which doesn't really do her music justice: it's got something of everything in it and is hard to fit in any category. Interesting fact: while she composes and produces all her music, her sister writes her often emotional and tangible lyrics.

#9 Berlin Roundfunk - An Englishman in Egypt w/ Tristan Banks
Berlin Roundfunk is back with another episode where I talk to a veteran of the show, Tristan Banks. Beside his important role in the band Moa McKay and the Flying Cabaret, he is also a booming musician in his own right. With acoustic guitar sounds ranging from folk to metal-like riffs, he has just realized his first solo EP, "Heart", and played a release gig in Café Wendel. Tune in to listen to his musings on music when growing up in Cairo, Egypt during the Arab Spring. Also check out his beautiful song "Oscillations" at the end of this episode.

#8 Berlin Roundfunk - The Different Faces of Music w/ LuKKas
It's all energy and passion for this week's featured artist: LuKKas (in daily life known as Lucas) plays most rock instruments and produces his own songs, too. A rock musician by trade, he puts on various musical personas to widen his musical horizon. In Berlin, you can find him on the streets (check out Stadtmitte late at night), at events, and even book him to help you produce your own tracks. For him, being connected to electronic instruments like an amplifier or a mic functions as an extension to being human, in a way becoming a cyborg in the process. Cyborg or not, all of these extensions enhance the creative process. Tune in for a live performance of his song "Lifeline" - which might go into the books as the longest continuous vocal sound; as well as a very pure studio recording of his rock song "Ready Go". Check out his website here: https://www.lukkas-music.com/
