Badi’s first contact with electronic music was a mind blowing experience: Goethebunker, Roman Flügel, all-night-long. Shortly afterwards, he was certain there was a whole universe of music for him to be discovered. The more the, born and raised, Gelsenkirchener dunked into this matter, the stronger the wish evolved to share electronic music’s various facets with others. Gaining expertise through first attempts at off-parties in Bochum and guest performances at clubs, such as Schumacher or Rotunde, Badi became an integral part of the Baracke Bochum’s DJ team that is currently collaborating with Essen’s Goethebunker. Moreover, he is known as one of the Unikat’s residents where he also takes charge of its diverse cultural, educational as well as festive events. Robag Wruhme, Gerd Janson and Theo Parish, in particular, their approaches to DJing, were important determinants of Badi’s first sets. The music played by Badi packs as much a punch as it packs positivity. If you decide to join his musical journeys, you’ll find African Funk, classy Disco- and abstract House productions, as well as banging 80’s drums and modern New Disco tracks.
Julian aka Turbojuppe started his journey into becoming a DJ at 11 years old, when playing around with a copy of Virtual DJ that his father bought by mistake. Having been a huge fan of Deadmau5 at the time it was clear that electronic music was the way he would go. After playing House and Techno at friends’ parties from time to time, he discovered his love for the funkier side of electronic music when a friend’s tattooist was playing a funk record during a session and said friend showed him a few tracks he remembered. The two, along with two other friends, founded the collective “dudeldisco” in the beginning of 2019, who since then host events in Julians hometown Munich. After coming to Witten, he joined the Unikat crew, a student initiative to bring cultural offerings into the Ruhrgebiet.
His sound is a mixture of house music, italo disco, funk, wave and most of their combinations and variations. Influential artists in the development of his sound were Gerd Janson, Palms Trax and Job Jobse.
