JackHammer Disco Presents: the legendary DJ T. (Get Physical- Berlin) debut at Public Works

+ Bells & Whistles (As You Like It / Desert Hearts)

Main Room/Funktion One sound

Thomas Koch aka DJ T. has been a vital part of electronic music and club culture for over 20 years. Uniquely accomplished in both influence and scope, he has excelled in every one of his incarnations: DJ, label owner, producer, club operator, publisher and journalist. Having recently closed one chapter of his working life – behind the scenes of Get Physical Music management.
In 2002, T. and five of his friends started their own label, Get Physical Music. Within ten single releases, the label had forged an international reputation that took in far beyond its German base; it reached #4 in the annual Groove reader’s poll of 2004, and claimed the coveted ‘label of the year 2005’ award from British clubbing bible DJ Mag. Established by six seasoned veterans of electronic music and club culture, the label collective included DJ and production team Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung (M.A.N.D.Y.), producers Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier (Booka Shade) and studio owner Peter Hayo. Focusing his attention on A&R responsibilities, T. tirelessly scoured the scene for new talent and mentored label signees, all the while developing as an artist in his own right. Four years after inking Get Physical, its sister label Kindisch was founded. Dedicated to deepness, Kindisch was T.’s playground and he played accordingly, driving its dancefloor identity, and honing in on what he labelled the ‘minimal booty house’ sound.

T.’s production debut, Monsterbaze, with Steve Bug, graced the latter’s Pokerflat imprint in 2000, and since that time he has notched up releases on Moodmusic, 20:20 Vision, Kindisch, plus twenty 12’’ singles for Get Physical. In 2005 T. unleashed his first album Boogie Playground, a reverential collection that paid homage to T.’s past, and the strands of early club music that shaped his future. In 2009 his sophomore longplayer The Inner Jukebox was rapturously received; a co-production with Thomas Schumacher, his second longplayer is an assured work, and a singular, accomplished statement that reflects T.’s ongoing interest in rigorously re-inventing classic sounds for modern ears and dancefloors. Koch’s additional talents as a remixer have not gone unnoticed. His reworks of acts for labels like ArtofDisco, Yellow, 20:20 Vision, Simple and Naked Music have moved critics and crowds alike.
Whether DJing in his hometown of 5 years, Berlin, gigging internationally, T.’s sets are invariably stirring and extraordinarily varied. T. is no style fascist, nor is he a slave to trends; he is a bass- and groove-addicted club historian, with a firm grasp of the contemporary. His sets turn 25 years of electronic music history into one finely rendered journey, transforming the links between genres and ages into a truly physical experience, whether he’s capturing the peaktime party spirit, or sending early morning crowds into veritable delirium with one of his famed marathon excursions. T. embarked on an exhaustive 9-month world tour in the summer of 2009 with The Inner Jukebox, and drew on his journalistic background to document the experience, writing a weekly tour diary for online electronic music magazine Beatportal. Invigorated and inspired by his extensive travels, T. channelled that kinetic energy straight back into creativity, undertaking an intensive period of writing and production in early 2010.
