When the music does the talking through precise song selection not requiring much of a vocal backing… JanuaryOne’s sharp percussions frame the warm bass lines that add the signature bit of melancholia to his sets be it under the open sky at Afrikaburn, on the dusty grounds of the townships or the clubs and bars of the Mother City.
Far away from his homeland Germany JanuaryOne established himself as one of Cape Town’s most in-demand DJs with residencies at highly acclaimed establishments like Asoka, Grand Africa, Jade and Orphanage.
Guest appearances across the country have seen him on club and festival lineups alongside local and international greats of House Music… Weiss (UK), Hot Chip (UK), Superflu (GER) Ryan Murgatroyd and Goldfish (RSA) to name but a few have shared the decks with JanuaryOne.
Artistically evolving naturally over the years the #TANZMUSIK sound of JanuaryOne has constantly progressed into a deeper and less obvious approach on House Music, having audiences curiously awaiting his sets in Southern Africa and on his regular visits back home to Europe.
With the JanuaryOne Music Podcast series he reaches over 5000 listeners every month from well beyond the borders of Germany and South Africa and remains the only Cape Town based DJ to have his podcast listed on iTunes.
