Ruede Hagelstein Mix

German producer and DJ based in Berlin since 2000, discreet but not the least bit talented, he works as an editor at FLYER Magazine for many years making him even more intimate with the Berlin clubbing culture. Discovered in 2004 by Andreas Baumecker, he released that year, his first EP The New Fresh on the Freudinnen label, with strong synth-pop influences.

DJs like Sven Väth, Michael Mayer, and Audion gave it credit and with his growing attention Ruede decided to professionalize his passion and learned the fundamentals of audioengeneering at the SAE Institute. This was followed by several productions, Eps, and remixes on labels like Careless, Kitsune, Upon You, and Souvenir Music.

His current sound is pretty far from the first of his pop influences and we can speak clearly of techno-house style. That guy who started late and so timid is now resident of the famous Berlin club Watergate since 2006, and has an extensive discography and support of several DJs, as his career continues to grow.
