Watch & Listen
Ruede Hagelstein is a German producer, singer, songwriter, and DJ. He
was raised in the suburbs of Berlin and later moved to the capital at
the age of 20. He sang in a choir, tortured his guitar, and dreamed of
having a rock star career. Instead, he started his DJ career in the
late-nineties at the renowned Berlin club Tresor.
While his DJing career progressed, Ruede was also an editor for
various nightlife and music magazines: Groove Magazin, FLYER Magazin,
PRINZ Magazin. His time spent as an editor brought him closer to the
heart of the dance music scene, which led him to co-found
restrealitaet.de - a Berlin-based web platform covering the local
underground Techno scene. In 2006, Ruede earned an Audio Engineer
Degree at the SAE Institute and became a resident DJ at Watergate, one
of Berlin's most popular clubs.
The first tracks Ruede produced got signed by big labels such as
Kitsune, Eskimo, and Cocoon. Soon, Ruede found himself co-producing
with other major artists, composing music for commercials, and scoring
“The Wyld,” one of Europe's biggest musical productions. He now has
numerous releases that are housed on labels like Watergate Records,
Upon You, and Souvenir. He is also widely known for his remixing
skills, which have been requested by powerhouse record labels like Get
Physical Music (Germany), Bedrock (UK), Culprit (US), Suara (Spain).
Parallel to his electronic music career, Ruede has formed an
indie-electronica band called “Ruede Hagelstein & The Noblettes” and
founded his own mixing studio in Berlin, where he works with diverse
artists like the Adana Twins, Move D, Tiefschwarz, and many more…
ising from humble beginnings in NYC, Berlin based Oshana has established an unparalleled identity in today’s underground scene. Earning recognition from her productions, she’s harnessed an innate ability to captivate her audience with the transcendental quality of her music. Drawing inspiration from the raw sound of late 90s house and techno, she’s composed a style that’s both fresh and mature, distinguished by its rugged percussion and warm, melodic synths.
Since her debut in 2012, Oshana has stacked up a number of superior accolades. She was named one of the underground’s top 10 leading ladies by Pulse Radio, she earned a coveted position on Raresh’s Fabric 78 compilation, and she garnished the support of several key players for her numerous chart-topping EP’s. As well as signing her music to BodyParts and Rue De Plaisance, Oshana’s developed a close association to Dana Ruh and Anthea’s Brouqade label, also following the latter to become an integral part of the exciting, new Partisan imprint.
This connection has proven to be significant for Oshana – holding down summer residencies for Brouqade & Friends at the infamous Club Der Visionaere in Berlin, while also keeping an active touring schedule - boasting dates around the world at Fuse Club in Belgium, Rex Club in Paris, Goa in Rome, Output in NYC, and festivals like Sonar in Barcelona and Epizode in Vietnam.
No matter where her path leads her, Oshana’s intentions remain focused on capturing the minds and hearts of her listeners. While her DJ sets play on inspiration from the crowd, Oshana’s LIVE shows are a strong force of their own, making them a natural fit for big rooms and large-scale festivals. Regardless of the setting, it is evident that energy is the primary factor permeating all aspects of Oshana’s creativity. In her particular approach, there is ample space for introspection and meditation, but never at the expense of the overall vibe of the dancefloor.
DJ Nav is a house and garage DJ and producer who has been making party goers groove and reach out for the baby powder for several years now. Recently coming through the ranks of the underground after playing gigs at U street music hall and Flash bar, he is garnering a well-deserved name for himself as a purveyor of no-nonsense dance music, for dancers.
His taste is for the "the golden sound" of house dropping New York and Jersey house dubs, Chicago house jams as well as London garage. Preferring the physical nature and warmth of vinyl, you will find his bag is stocked with both vintage records as well as the latest underground house 12" releases.
DJ Nav has himself been releasing successful dance music lately, forming a following with a string of underground releases on labels such as Brooklyn's Love Revolution, Made Fresh Daily, and Spanish imprint Traxx Underground.
Nav has also curated an authentic house podcast called The Uptown House Experience, now on its 5th installment. Each podcast has a distinct flavor such as the deep disco of part 4 or the deep and techy sounds on his latest part 5. The cover art depicting locations around the DC area is also a nice touch.
