Ruede Hagelstein is a German producer, singer, songwriter, and DJ. He was raised in the suburbs of Berlin and later moved to the capital at
the age of 20. He sang in a choir, tortured his guitar, and dreamed of having a rock star career. Instead, he started his DJ career in the late-nineties at the renowned Berlin club Tresor.
While his DJing career progressed, Ruede was also an editor for various nightlife and music magazines: Groove Magazin, FLYER Magazin, PRINZ Magazin. His time spent as an editor brought him closer to the heart of the dance music scene, which led him to co-found restrealitaet.de – a Berlin-based web platform covering the local underground Techno scene. In 2006, Ruede earned an Audio Engineer Degree at the SAE Institute and became a resident DJ at Watergate, one of Berlin’s most popular clubs.
The first tracks Ruede produced got signed by big labels such as Kitsune, Eskimo, and Cocoon. Soon, Ruede found himself co-producing with other major artists, composing music for commercials, and scoring “The Wyld,” one of Europe’s biggest musical productions. He now has numerous releases that are housed on labels like Watergate Records, Upon You, and Souvenir. He is also widely known for his remixing skills, which have been requested by powerhouse record labels like Get Physical Music (Germany), Bedrock (UK), Culprit (US), Suara (Spain). Parallel to his electronic music career, Ruede has formed an indie-electronica band called “Ruede Hagelstein & The Noblettes” and founded his own mixing studio in Berlin, where he works with diverse artists like the Adana Twins, Move D, Tiefschwarz, and many more…
Rising from humble beginnings in NYC, Berlin based Oshana has established an unparalleled identity in today’s underground scene. Earning recognition from her productions, she’s harnessed an innate ability to captivate her audience with the transcendental quality of her music. Drawing inspiration from the raw sound of late 90s house and techno, she’s composed a style that’s both fresh and mature, distinguished by its rugged percussion and warm, melodic synths.
Since her debut in 2012, Oshana has stacked up a number of superior accolades. She was named one of the underground’s top 10 leading ladies by Pulse Radio, she earned a coveted position on Raresh’s Fabric 78 compilation, and she garnished the support of several key players for her numerous chart-topping EP’s. As well as signing her music to BodyParts and Rue De Plaisance, Oshana’s developed a close association to Dana Ruh and Anthea’s Brouqade label, also following the latter to become an integral part of the exciting, new Partisan imprint.
This connection has proven to be significant for Oshana – holding down summer residencies for Brouqade & Friends at the infamous Club Der Visionaere in Berlin, while also keeping an active touring schedule - boasting dates around the world at Fuse Club in Belgium, Rex Club in Paris, Goa in Rome, Output in NYC, and festivals like Sonar in Barcelona and Epizode in Vietnam.
No matter where her path leads her, Oshana’s intentions remain focused on capturing the minds and hearts of her listeners. While her DJ sets play on inspiration from the crowd, Oshana’s LIVE shows are a strong force of their own, making them a natural fit for big rooms and large-scale festivals. Regardless of the setting, it is evident that energy is the primary factor permeating all aspects of Oshana’s creativity. In her particular approach, there is ample space for introspection and meditation, but never at the expense of the overall vibe of the dancefloor.
