Mix #218 By André Hommen

Running the Objektivity label alongside East-coast house legend Dennis Ferrer, André Hommen provides a diving mix that is of utmost outstanding quality – from start to finish. His passion for music formed through his love of radio, where seminal radio-shows opened the doors to a world of music. House music, with its warmth and its groove, is the sound which became his musical home. André  started mixing for himself, but eventually went on performing at underground parties near his home-region.

Mix #210 By Baikal

He recently released ... Read more
