When and where were you born, and have you always been in Berlin?
This week sees the release of Moodmusic’s Starstyling compilation
, which is a fine selection of some of the best moments from their recent catalog. Label owner Sasse
provides a large helping of fresh house and techno featuring tunes from many of the Moodmusic camp, such as Tigerskin
's already classic “Holy Grail”
along with the newest release from Dave DK
and Holger Zilkse, “You Will Find Out,”
which we can’t get enough of...Sasse took some time out to answer some questions for all things concerning Moodmusic and what’s in store next.
Originally born and raised in Finland in May 1973, I´ve been in Germany for the last 10 years, in Berlin for 6 years now. As much as I Iove the city for its vibrant scene, it´s a very nice and chilled place to live.
What got you interested in house/techno music?
It must have been the first wave of acid house which hit the UK, and eventually also the rest of Europe in the end of the 80s which made the impact. I remember taping radio shows in late 80s with italo, proto house and early Chicago stuff and dreaming of going into clubs, as where I lived in a small industrial city in Finland there [were] only shitty pubs and discos. Eventually I started traveling to London and NYC to buy records and visit clubs, which led to promoting my own nights in the early 90s, first doing proper raves, then doing club nights and so on..
