Robin Masters Orchestra AKA
Born in East Berlin, Oliver Marquardt was first inspired to become a DJ when the 1984 breakdancing film ‘Beat Street’ permeated the city’s isolated music scene. Equally influential was the dance music he heard broadcast from West Berlin radio. After closely following these new musical styles – hip-hop, acid house, etc. – Oliver bought his own pair of turntables in 1989. This was right after the Berlin wall came down, providing fertile soil for the city’s new underground music scene to take root, and by the following year Oli was organizing his own techno parties.
Although his illegal warehouse parties (complete with 50k-watt laser lights) were noteworthy in themselves, Oli forged ahead as one of the first German DJs to establish a nationwide presence. DJ Jauche, as he was known, began a residency at Berlin’s legendary Walfisch club... www.dj-jauche.de
