CLASSIC AMBIENT AND CHILLOUT SHOWCASE.
corins name became firmly associated with the then new sound of the chill out in the very early 90s when he launched what was arguably berlins first dedicated chill out show on kiss.fm. until then as resident dj in tachelas, he had introduced a sometimes confused audience to chill out and ambient sets several hours long, culminating in what is now regarded as a legendary and game changing multi media event entitled "mercy" that ran for 4 sundays in march 1992 at the roter salon.
after a few 2 hour long pilot shows on kiss.fm in 1992, his ambient show ran weekly every sunday night from 1 to 6, until 1998. it rapidly became one of kiss.fms most listened to shows and the most favored choice of berlin taxi drivers as a way to cool down their rave era up since thursday clientel. called ED2000, the show estsblished corin as a go to radio show host for innovation and originality. throughout his 25 years of non stop radio presence, corin has had long term residencies on kiss.fm, twen.fm ( berlins until now one and only pirate station), djsets.com, where he was also programme director, london based cult station ibreaks.fm and he was present on bln.fm and all of its prototypes for 12 years until 2016. In 2016 he was added to the show host roster of liquid sky berlin radio. In 2017 to Cashmere Radio Berlin and in 2020 to New York based The Face Radio.
the "25 years in the chillout" showcases will feature classics in their original forms as well as his re edited and treated versions, multi layered with additional dubbed and treated vocals and effects. era specific visuals combined with visuals from corins experimental sound and light project, kkdw, can also be included. a long set is prefered if possible but all interest and enquiries will be equally and gratefully taken on board.

DANGEROUS DRUMS SHOWCASE. started on NYE 1998 entitled "tonight were gonna party like its 1999", dangerous drums was the first regular event in berlin dedicated to bass music. back then it was a mix of big beat with u.s. and new school breaks. more recently its been techno redefined by generation dubstep, and the new generations bass driven fusions of classic bass and all things breakbeat. it has become berlins second longest running event series ever, and over the years has staged the berlin debut shows from pinch, kode 9, benny ill and horse power productions, dj icey, the plump djs, and many more. co run since 2000 together with dj vela, ( born in sofia bulgaria, resident in berlin since 1998), it has remained a finger on the pulse showcase for new innovations in bass heavy beats driven electronic dance. after a 12 year residency in legendary maria am ostbahnhoff, and a subsequent 6 year residency in tresor, corins jubilee 20 years dangerous drums package can be either ED2000 solo, as a guest dj on your own lineup, or a multi dj package for the entire night, selected from the Dangerous Drums residents ED2000, DJ Vela, DJ Tanith, Soulhunter plus third turntable scratches and effects maestro DJ Rollin Thunder. a 2 or 3 DJ line up can also be discussed. in addition, should corin already be comitted on any dates you might offer, the option to book Dj Vela solo, or together with one or more of the remaining residents is of course also possible.

ED2000 FUNK AND GROOVE CLUB SHOWCASE Corins first dj set in public was at Billys Club, in soho, london, in 1978. his jubilee club sound showcase features a funk and groove driven set of his own re edits. ranging from 2018 pre release material to favorites selected from an archive that commences in 1969 when he bought his first ever record, by toots and the maytals. additional accapellas and effects in the mix make this showcase quiet unique. on a recent 10 date tour of japan, he road tested this concept, culminating in a hugely succesfull night at the legendary Metro Club in Kyoto. by the end of his set even the Clubs Bar Manager and the clubs Owner were out on the dance floor, accompanied by the director of the kyoto goethe institute and his wife. in short, it went off!
his first berlin club residency was in west berlins renowned ChaCha on nurnburger strasse, 89-91. here he also presented his first ever own events. the first four nights corin put on showscased the berlin debuts of rave pioneer and initiator dj colin favor, deep house legend arnold jarvis, game changers soul to soul and the dj who introduced the wider world outside of brooklyn new york to hip hop, tim westwood. the night the berlin wall fell corin was playing alongside sven vath and geman turntablist champion cutmaster b at a high profile event in frankfurt. since 1978 corin has fullfilled over 4000 dj gigs world wide and has championed the sound of innovative forward looking dj culture in its many and ever changing styles across a 40 year long career as a professional club dj. it is the sum total of all these experiences and a seminal sound archive on which corin draws for his funk, and groove showcases, of course with an ongoing jamjam flava in the mix. Mixes to follow.
UNDERGROUND HOUSE AND TECHNO SETS corin was invited to become resident in the staendige vertretung club just weeks after the berlin wall fell. the club was the first underground techno and house club to open in the old east, after the wall was opened. his own unique take on what constituted underground house and techno, and the rock solid fan base he built up for this sound, resulted in him achieving the longest running resident status in the location, 90-93 when the club in the cellars under arthaus tachelas closed. he had by then however also become resident upstairs at the same location, in Zappatta, the Tacheleas live band and dj location on the ground floor. as well as this he remained a go to dj for special events in the same locations theater space. in 2012 when tachelas officially closed its doors for the last time corin was the only berlin dj who had been present from the opening up of the location to the incoming west berliners, until its last days. 20 years in all. during this time he also held down a 6 year residency at Tresor as the co promoter of Dangerous Drums and it was his introducing the new take on techno being created in uk by generation dubstep, that saw him heralded as having played and booked artists who played "the best techno in tresor for many years". this was around 2013.
his current techno sound reflects these developments, as well as taking on board the new wave of younger producers. his current underground house sets draw heavily on his own re edited versions of deep underground house from across the more than three decades that he hs been playing that sound. as many of his edits are of rare inependant releases that very few people ever got to hear, his house sound is a mix of unique beats that you will only hear in his sets, combined with a fresh showcase of the most upfront house that you will likely hear in many djs sets in the months and years to come.
