DJ, Producer, Promoter
He is one of the most influencing and interesting djs from Leipzig (Saxony) playing the real deep and heavy funk tunes for years. His collection of records includes rare funk pearls, electro hip hop from new to oldschool and grooving breaks. He started djing in the middle of the 90s and formed his unique style of mixing. Like the animal – weasel – he is a diversified and fast player who combines scratching, juggling and cutting to a fresh mixture. Without big publicity Da Wiesel is growing up to be a sure party rocker in the scene here. That is why he is the new resident dj of Leipzigs much valued club Distillery. He supports the insider locations – Horns Erben and Polyester Club, where Funk, Soul and Dancefloor Jazz tunes rip up the floor. As support for Blowfly (Alternative Tentacles, Miami), Dj Krush, Smoove (Acid Jazz, Wack Rec.), Tony L. and the Safari Sounds or Resoul (True Beatz Crew) he was able to show his “wild style” to the
dancefloors. This year he rocks the crowd of the famous SPLASH Festival, the Battle of the Year Party and Wordsound Tour together with Kouhai (Osaka), Spectre and Sensational.
As a part of the Sunsetsoul crew he playes beside Frequento, Splendor and Bond. The soundsystem from Leipzig is specialized in crossing different styles of music – from Downbeat, Funky Breaks, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop to Drum’n’Bass.
Da Wiesel is also one of the creators of the Smokin' Beatz Radio Show on Radio BLAU blowing up rare dope beats.
In April 2008 he released his first 12” on the funky breaks label Goodgroove Records which is based in Bath (UK), including big remixes of Smoove and Feature Cast. It was one of the most successful record of the Goodgroove label.
