May 10 @ 22:00 - 22:05€10
Düsseldorf has a face for its new musical generation. Chameleon, adept tastemaker and consummate vinyl lover, Jan Schulte is one of Germany’s best DJ exports, honing his taste and styles to a fit a mix of percussive and wave styles. As an artist he has more pseudonyms that you can shake a stick at.
As Wolf Müller, Schulte embodies a prototypical krautrock deity, one that earned sterling plaudits for his 2016 EP The Sound of Glades, recorded alongside Cass for International Feel Recordings. There’s Bufiman, an act that characterizes the artist’s more percussive and classic house side featuring an abundance of African rhythms. He’s also not shy on the collaborating front working as Montezumas Rache alongside Christian Pannenborg from The Record Loft in Berlin, as Young Wolf with Young Marco while a new collaborative EP with Tim Schumacher is also in the works.
A resident DJ at Dusseldorf’s iconic nightclub, Salon Des Amateurs – nicknamed the ‘post-kraut Haçienda’ by Resident Advisor – Schulte is part of a newer generation of artists that surmise the venue’s approach to diverse music that also includes the likes of Lena Willikens and Tolouse Low Trax. He’s also part of the local imprint and community Themes for Great Cities, that push forward thinking, dancefloor wave, techno and house. Basically cool new electronic music that’s only available to vinyl-heads.
