Will Chris Tietjen Rocket Germany’s Temperature Above Freezing?
It’s October. In Germany, it’s already minus seven degrees at night, so who better to step up to the challenge of getting the countries temperature, and pulse, royally roasting other than Cocoon regular Chris Tietjen?
On Saturday November 28th, home grown tech DJ Tietjen will take to the decks at Gloria’s in Regensburg, and as my first experience of both Germany and Tietjen live in the mix, I’m filled with a mix of eager anticipation and bottomless excitement, but characteristically retain the critical stance of a reviewer.
In preparation, I’ve been filling my sharply tuned ears with the sound of Tietjen, including an eleven minute mini mix that’s a pretty good introduction to his world. Oddly, it’d appear that his MySpace holds not one single track, something he really ought to fix pronto to further a global reputation. Whether in a period dominated by Twitter and Facebook or not, it’s still automatically your first port of call for music.
Despite less than a wealth of his productions online, it’s safe to say Tietjen has firmly made my hit list of must-see producers – simply for the fact he’s affiliated with my first love of 2009; Cocoon recordings. Having fallen head over heels into Sven Väth’s world and his globally renowned parties this summer, (where have I been for the last ten years?), I’m pretty certain that not only will Tiejten set alight both Gloria’s and Germany’s temperature, he’ll also do a pretty good job on mine too.
