45 Day Interview



German Hip Hop Pioneer DJ Defcon is one half of the Cologne-based Soundsystem, “Disco Diamant – Jewels Of The Dancefloor”. In the late 80’s he was a member of the  band LSD, who put out the first German Hip Hop album: “Watch Out For the Third Rail”—sixty minutes of sample madness destined for cult status. As a lifelong digger, he is always on the hunt for obscure breaks in every genre. Defcon’s DJ-sets are a musical journey through myriad categories of groovy music: Boogie Disco Breaks, Oldschool Hip Hop, 80ies Electro, Latin, House Classics, Miami Bass, Rock, Soul und Funk. He has been known to quite literally “fire up” the dance floor with amateur pyrotechnics.
