"DJing forces me into here and now, into a higher state full of vitality, clean of problems, clean of thinking."
Since the beginning of the nineties, Upzet is a fan of electronic music. At first he was attracted to Acid, Rave and Trance. 1997, at the age of 16, he discovered his all-consuming passion for drum & bass music and in 1998 he started mixing it.
Since this time, Upzet has been constantly motivated to improve his mixing skills and he attaches great importance to harmony and diversity in all of his sets.
Today, Liquid, Deep, Dark, Tech, Neuro and Jumpup are his usual styles, but mixing Oldskool Jungle or Happybreakbeats also gives him a sense of delight. He also plays Techno, House, Melodic Minimal and more.
In 2001, after experiences with various artists, he started organizing drum & bass events. In 2009, Upzet moved to Berlin, where he of course is still djing and where he promotes clubdates like 'Out of Mind', 'Step higher', 'Infected', 'Lucid Dreaming', 'Therapy Sessions' and other special events. Since 2015 he runs the club 'VOID'.
Due to Corona he found access to music production again. One or the other release will be published in 2021.
This evening he'll play Volume 7 of his liquid dnb series 'Hidden Keys' as a debut. So get ready for mainly melodic dnb tracks.
Because of Corona, Gretchen is closed since mid-March 2020. That is why the club is now presenting music from the club into the living rooms of the world. If you like it, Gretchen would be happy to receive donations at the "virtual bar" to compensate for the total loss of income.
