Comprised of multi-faceted producer Leibniz (shtum/Rat Life) and Golem Club’s Alex Hoppe – respectively based in Leipzig and Hamburg, DJ bwin is a production duo for whom the question of genre is certainly the furthest thing from their minds. Switching styles and approaches according to their situation and mood, Moritz and Alex have made variation and unpredictability their only constant, straying away from calibrated range and easy categorisation.
With their debut split about to drop via First Second Label, the timing felt ideal to invite Leipzig-via-Hamburg duo DJ bwin over for a little mixing session. The result defies gravity with its intense mashup of old school hip-hop, convulsive breakbeat, hi-NRG house and screwed electronics.
