Simon Drosten records his sets to reach out to people. Some people who know his sets would agree that they don’t necessarily lift you up in a party mood but contain various melancholic elements accompanied by heavy emotions. First and foremost, the DJ from Gütersloh wants to get people involved in electronic music with his mixes – even though he doesn’t deny the fact that he himself likes to include Pop music elements. But what does affect him is the growing tendency towards electronic tinkle music. “To fight this development, music should have to pick people right up where they stand”, says Drosten.
His most recent mix is titled “Anschalten & Abschalten”, which one should take to heart instantly.
