First up is a female by the name of LIZA, she is from West Germany and resides in Munich for nearly 20 years
LIZA says there are many labels she enjoys but at the moment Potion and Strength music spark her interest.
When I asked her what should her fans expect in her sets?
Liza is a Resident at Harry Klein & Rote Sonne, Lately she has made guest appearances at Kong and MMA.
Her next dates in Munich are:
Track list and why you chose the tracks?
Carl Craig - At Les // Planet E
What Artists is an inspiration to you?
Well i guess that inspiration comes from quite a lot different things. There are def. artists that i look up to, all the guys from New York, DJ Qu, Levon, Joey Anderson, Anthony Parasole. They have such a well idea of how their music should sound like and how they produce their music. Not to mention their ideology of DJing. You never know what’s going to happen in their DJ sets and that excites me. But i really don't want to refer too much to names and labels, as I guess that there are other things that inspire me more personally at the moment. There are things that you experience, on an emotional level, on a visual scale as well as on a listening level, and that brings you to a certain mood. And for me as a DJ I try to project my current mood to my DJ sets, so this is also why they can really change from time to time. I think that your mood and your feelings are fluid and so is your music.
Not to get me wrong, i think that having role models is definitely an indispensable part of your inspiration and you always need other artists that led your way to where you want to go and be someday. But i think that your feelings, your mood and your own view and thinking on music should lead you in the first step. So to answer your question, I feel pretty melancholic at the moment - which is basically because I mostly feel like this in autumn time.
I think it's the most exciting time of the year. Everything’s changing, you’re kind of saying goodbye to all the euphoria and bliss of the summer and you start to slow down a bit and get into this certain mood. For me, this is a typical feeling that gets you every time before winter is coming, and I love it. So basically at the moment i feel pretty emotional, so my sets are emotional too. A bit more of trying to achieve a certain level of profundity. I also went to many concerts last times, non-electronic, that inspired me in many different ways. I listened to so many amazing records. I love the music of Warpaint, I listened to their latest album probably 1000 times, and I fell in love with it so deeply. Combined with all the experiences I made, people I met, in a good way but also in a bad way. I guess that all of this is flowing into my DJ sets mainly at the moment.
Born and raised?
In the west of Germany. A pretty small and nice city near to Düsseldorf, called Neuss. I moved to Munich when I was 20 I guess, so I’m living here for more than 6 years now.
You cannot name one label to be your favorite, there are too many great labels. But trying to go that way, for example for me Dolly Dubs is not only one of the best labels but also always one step ahead. As already mentioned regarding Levon and the others, also in this case I feel that Steffi has such a sharp and clear view on how her music and the artists that are releasing on the label should sound like, but without staying in the same box again and again. She always reinvents herself, as well as her label, so this is what is actually fascinating me. I'm also pretty excited about "Potion", the new label founded by Murat Tepeli und Prosumer. And for me "Strength Music" never fails. As already mentioned, I love nearly every release of DJ Qu, and I love every release of the label.
Besides my residencies at Harry Klein and Rote Sonne, in which I’m always enjoying my nights, i really like the new MMA. I think it's amazing and I'm already pretty excited to play there next time.
Yes I am. I am really a newcomer in this whole producing thing. At the moment I'm working with Logic only, no machines, just to outline my ideas and thoughts and to take first steps and afterwards extending my equipment. I'm really excited to improve my skills and to release my very own stuff one day. It feels amazing to finally have your own thoughts and music written down. It will still take some time until I'll be ready to release. But I’m already enjoying this whole new thing in my life a lot. It’s a great enrichment for me and I feel really happy with it right now.
What do you think about the Munich Underground Club Scene?
It's just so far away from the intention of the thought itself. In the end, it just doesn't matter if it's strictly vinyl, or if it's a good and well thought through set. I also play mostly vinyl but i simply don't see the need to write it as an explanation to my sets. This is just one example to try to explain what I mean, and it’s not because I want to offend anyone. But I have the feeling that there is such a strong need in categorizing yourself in something, instead of just actually creating something simply good. Of course I'd be more skeptical to see a laptop DJ playing, I also started with that in a club because I was nervous as hell and it gave me kind of a “safe” feeling.
Which turned out to be wrong. And I’d be more skeptical to know that the podcast is just recorded with cheap files on Ableton live. It’s just a fact that people who care about music mostly want to spend more money in buying vinyl, instead of just owning all of your music in form of a digital file data bank. But I'm just missing a more natural way of enjoying and handling music, more from the very original and actual intention - which is just the music. The same applies with the scene and the word "Underground". Hating against people that take photographs in the club, screaming out your one sided opinion on all your socials. Without really thinking about what you have actually said and most importantly, without really having the knowledge and therefore the entitlement to act that aggressively when it comes to your statement and intention.
Why don’t you just let people take their photos when they want to have a nice memory from the night to take at home and be happy. Sometimes I just don’t get all the hate and judgement of the people, and it really bores me. For me, putting yourself over other people, thinking that you’re in the position to define what has to be cool and what not, and for that building up hierarchies has nothing to do with the actual word and meaning of “underground”. In my definition, underground means being free from any rules, categories, regulations, boxes, hierarchies and judgement. And I think we’re still failing on this massively. But I truly believe that everything can be really simple. I believe that good DJs, good music and good people working in the scene with a good heart can create the best "underground" culture that we have. We're on our way, but there's def. always a bit of a way to go.
What is your primary source to play music (vinyl,digital,USB, cd)?
Mostly Vinyl, everything that I do not own on vinyl I have on my USB.
Yes, I'm working in the music industry. I'm mainly responsible for building up new artists and musicians.
Hopefully always something new and different. But definitely always something from the heart.
I would like to mention a few dates to you might want to attend:

Hello it's Monday December 13, 2011
As the end of the year comes near to a close I thought it would be nice to leave you something entertaining to your ear drums. The music you are now listening to was Recorded at Bohemian Grove Islington Mill United Kingdom on December 3, 2011.
The Bohemian Grove is all about hearing good electronic music, comfortable surroundings with like minded people. They like to keep an intimate garage setting so the vibe is correct, so if your in or around the UK "The Grove" is with out a doubt the place to be. Thanks to Taff/the event crew and the locals that helped make my stay positive and up beat more the residents Rick Nicholls, Johnny Abstract & Damo B, do represent.
The show, I guess the best way to describe "Decisive Podcast 12" this time around is something I made up. deepsmoothcrunchyhypnotisingbassbeateclecticfundementalorganiclove!
