Born in Kiel, Germany, in the late 60’s, Finn Johannsen started collecting records since he was a kid, with a focus on anything danceable from Disco, Soul, Post Punk, to Synth Pop and all points in between, and entered the nightlife as soon as he could. He spent his formative years dancing in some legendary clubs in Hamburg and started out as a DJ in the 80’s on the Rare Soul circuit, then later fell in love with House and Techno and the styles that followed suit.
Over the years he played a vast array of national and international gigs, and his widely acclaimed mixes and radio shows are all over the web. He is also a well respected and prolific writer for numerous print and web media publications (and there are rumors that he is affiliated with the mysterious D*ruffalo collective). He lives in Berlin, where he operates the Macro Recordings imprint with Stefan Goldmann. He used to work for the Hard Wax store, and is now acting as impresario at the Berlin clubs Paloma and Monarch.
