Desolat Records

Patrick Specke Mix

He started his liason with nightlife at the tender age of 17 being totally absorbed by the colourful world of dancing and house & techno music. In 99, after being a full-on collector for some years he went forward and successfully made the move to start his Djing career.

What followed were years of mingling with the who are who of underground dance music and residencies at well known underground clubs in Essen.

In 2003 the claim of Patrick’s ability became such undeniable fact to score him both: a residency at Düsseldorf’s prime Harpune Club and a residency at Heitmatmelodie parties at Hotel Shanghai in Essen.

In 2004 he teamed up with Daze Maxim of Cocoon fame to produce his well-received first EP on Kahlwild Records. This vital and highly creative companionship celebrated their groove once again in 2007 with producing the follow up to the first EP, also on Kahlwild.

Meanwhile his circle of Dj-gigs has expanded scoring him gigs around Germany in highly prestigious places like Panorama Bar, Berghain, Bar 25, Cdv, Watergate, Weekend, Tape Club (all Berlin), Westpol (Cologne), Flow (Italy), Hotel Shanghai (Essen), Tribehouse , Six Dogs (Athens) and has furthered him in his quest of dance music and elaborate grooves, getting back to the studio in 2009 to release cooperating with Daze Maxim on Desolat Records and an EP on Hello? Repeat Records in 2010!
