Tobias Becker is the owner of techno label Platzhirsch Schallplatten, home to releases by king of melodies Gabriel Ananda and Rocco Branco aka Dominik Eulberg. After working as a trainee at German distributors Neuton, Becker set up Platzhirsch in 2003. It has been voted as one of the top ten German record labels in the influential Groove Magazine Readers Poll. Besides running the label, Becker is also a DJ. He's hosted label nights at the Berlin's Panoramabar and The Loft in Barcelona plus held down residencies at clubs in Cologne and Dusseldorf.
'Trallafitti' is the debut mix CD for both Becker and Platzhirsch. Mixed the old skool way with vinyl on two turntables and no digital touch-ups, the CD is a club mix from start to finish showcasing the more pumping end of tech house and minimal techno. It includes tracks by Akufen, Audion, Gabriel Ananda, Funk D'Void & Phil Kieran, Marco Carola, Shed and The Mole. The compilation also comes with a bonus CD that includes nine tracks from the Platzhirsch catalogue including current dancefloor slayer 'Doppelwhipper' by Gabriel Ananda.
