After a somewhat longer break than planned, we will now start the Champloo Music Podcast series again at regular intervals. We are very pleased that Oskar Offermann has found an already completed mix in the depth of his treasures that we want to present to you..
Oskar Offermann is the mind behind the Berlin House Label WHITE. Now, with nearly 20
publications the label has shown that their claim on their own work is endless. With their hand for aesthetic in design and the good sense for the right groove the label is made to stay in the german house scene.
But it´s not only the label operation and playing records. The thirst for action unfolds in
interdisciplinary projects or own series of events, as in Bar25 or in Horst
Kreuzberg…what most established labels and producers in a city like Berlin forget about,
WHITE does -true to the DIY principle- a platform for especially newcomer and a more innovative interpretation of House.
When he is in action the “beardy sexiest man alive” focuses to Deep House and Disco.
Rough, raw and groovy, but always with an eye for songs and melodies.
But for now we will let the music speak. Enjoy.
The 11th Champloo Music Podcast is made by a vinyl lover and advocate of the pure disco sound, Marcel Vogel aka. Em Vee from Amsterdam.
The bearded Lumberjack from rural Germany is chopping soulful tunes as a profession and releasing some of these on his Lumberjacks in Hell imprint. Then others you’ll only hear in his DJ sets. Many influences shinning through when Em Vee is behind the decks: the heat and energy of the Chicago Disco masters, the grittiness of the Detroit godfathers, the playfulness of Berlin’s freestyle jocks and the soulful tradition of New York Garage.
Let’s chop some wax and heat the dancefloor up!
No tracklist, sorry.
Here are two free tracks for the disco audience. The first is made by Martin Hayes from Leipzig, Germany. Martin is one of the labelheads of Rose Records and a real disco advocate. The other one is by Frank Booker from Auckland City, New Zealand. Frank is famous for his good musical taste and his releases on labels like Untracked, Sleazy Beats & Kolour Recordings LTD.

We’d like to invite you to celebrate our 10th episode of the Champloo Music podcast. This time made by a rising and talented DJ and producer from Liverpool, Andy Ash.
Andy grew up collecting records and DJing since the age of fifteen and cut his teeth warming up playing deep house music around the clubs of Cambridge. Since then Andy has moved to Liverpool and widened his DJ spectrum, he now regularly drops vinyl bombs spanning from afro-beat through to deep house in his DJ sets.
Andy Ash has steadily been bulding his sound over the past few years taking in influences ranging from jazz through to techno. He started off with a small digital release on Five20East (The Revenge‘s original label) and has gone on to release multiple original productions, edits and remixes on labels such as On The Prowl, Boogie Originals, FOTO and Kolour Recordings to name a few. Having recently taken on the role of co-runner for Boogie Originals Records expect much more from Andy in the future.

We are proud to present our 9th Champloo Music Podcast. This time it’s compiled and mixed by Chasing Kurt and made of nothing more than 100% wax.
Chasing Kurt is a new ambitious DeepHouse-project from Gießen, Germany. Behind all this is the crew around Pascal Blanché, Wojtek Kutschke and Lukas Poloczek, who contributes the vocals. Chasing Kurt is a mixture of atmospheric minimal House and steady beats as well as the souly voice of Lukas which gives the music an own distinctive character. Last year his first songs “Daydream” (incl. Pawas remix) on Carry On and “Money” (incl. Tom Ellis remix) on Good Ratio Music were released, whereas “Money” can be found on the latest DJ-Kicks (Mix-CD) by Maya Jane Coles.
