We are really happy to announce our first Word Of Mouth guests. All the way from Frankfurt and with 20 years of career as a Dj, producer and Record label owner, Heiko MSO. Also to make sure you have an amazing friday boogie DJ Oswald and residents Sonogama and Ranacat will be spinning too.
As a producer he has worked with many respected artists including ATA, ROMAN FLÜGEL, JOHANESS HELL and PASCAL FEOS to name a few. In 1993, HEIKO and ATA found the renowned KLANG ELEKTRONIK and PLAYHOUSE as sub-labels of ONGAKU, discovering and releasing talents like VILLALOBOS, ALTER EGO, BABY FORD, DANIEL WANG, DANIEL BELL, DEETRON, ISOLEE, JOHN TEJADA, LINDSTROM, LUCIEN N. LUCIANO, LOSOUL, PROSUMER and the list goes on and on and on…..
Heiko's international Dj career includes gigs in Detroit, Chicago, Chile, Tokyo and his long 11 years residency at ROBERT JOHNSON club in Frankfurt since 1999, one of the trendiest and most respected style-setting house clubs in the world.
Heiko's sets include house as well as techno elements. He finds committing himself to only one style is neither necessary nor would it make sense. His personal style is based on a balanced mixture of both influences. His musical roots lie in soul & funk, disco and Chicago house, but also in reduced and original Detroit techno. Electronic and classic repetitive music has influenced and inspired him since his early childhood.
Coming up from his natural life style, living most of his life in the
clubs, Oswald is definitely DJ at first sight.
In Slovakia, he was one of the persons responsible for pushing forward the electronic scene owning and running the leading club Spojka where he brought the likes of CARL CRAIG, SWAYZAK, MATHEW HERBERT, JAZZANOVA, ANDREW WHEATHERALL, DIXON, SLAM to name but a few, and also running for 5 years of electronic music stages at the biggest Slovakian festival Pohoda. This gave him an extraordinary experience to play with big authorities and respected djs and to discover secrets of small clubs, but also huge raves.
This original school led him to enormous spectrum of music he is
aware of in a very original form, giving to the party an experience of remembering, strong emotional disco with new techno energy, minimal sounds, deep house feeling and trans position.
Major time Oswald just belongs to his studio connected to different
With his last year music composition for the National Slovak Theatre, play Holly/Roth was awarded at New Drama festival. Now in London, Oswald study at Middlesex University a degree in Sonic Art and runs a weekly night,Sunday Club at East Village.
