Following the success of its first year birthday celebration, Hijackin’ continues to satisfy hungry dancers & demanding soulful devotees for another 8th underground bonanza. Jack stays true to his high standards of freshness & funkiness daring to keep challenging you with his defining combination of leftfield & black rooted House music served by tasty local & international chefs. Thinking outside the box is an acclaimed trademark that many hijackers of the Ritter Butzke bi-monthly experience have given a generous wave of applause for. Never fading away of the original House ethos, the party found a unique way of tributing the past while being strongly turned into the future. This is why this September issue will display tons of new talents that managed already to seduce discerning international dance floors where deepness & honesty are the name of the game.
The Chicago's heritage & the analogue love will be represented proudly through a rare Berlin live performance of Mr Beautiful Granville himself, Tevo Howard renown for his melodically rich drum machine workouts on Rush Hour & Rebirth. Two other long awaited live performances will mesmerize you that night: Quarion, the long running Swiss producer, co-runner of the respected vinyl only imprint Retreat & gracious beatmaker for quality underground stables as Drumpoet, Future Classic & Quintessentials, and the mighty Kim Brown duo who released their debut album on Hardwax affiliated Just Another Beat imprint with international praise & devotion following.
On the wheels of steel, jack invited some serious vinyl tweakers to provide some sparkles of magic. Fresh of his recent appearances on DVS1's Mistress & Ostgut Ton, Borrowed Identity is one of these young cats you will remember to have heard here first. Eddie C, the Canadian freaky Disco guru, is a real master of ceremony, counting many fans thanks to his classy releases on Endless Flight, Sleazy Beats and other Nu Disco emporiums.
