Vienna – does that ring a bell? The reference of this town probably brings up thoughts of classical music, old emperors with white beards, art nouveau buildings and Schnitzel in first place. However, Austria’s capital also offers a lively, diverse electronic music scene to discover, which not only brought up worldwide renowned artists like Dorian Concept, Patrick Pulsinger, Kruder & Dorfmeister or Camo & Krooked, but dozens and hundreds of creative, devoted individuals pushing things forward as DJs, producers, event and club promoters or operators of labels or record stores, and making it a shiny, little gem for music lovers.
How do we know? Simple, we live here – Play.fm was founded by people from and having its headquarters in Vienna since 2004. Thus, as a kick-off for our new city channels, nothing more obvious for us to do to showcase some (thirty to be exact) of the Vienna’s most talented, demanded, interesting, forward-thinking or in any other way influential players and have them chatting about life in Vienna and the local scene as well as do what they do best: Mix up magnificent music!
So throughout the recently passed months of May and June, we did thirty interviews (in German only yet, any translation tool of your choice shall give you the overall idea though), each coming along with an exclusive mix – a collection that showcases the wide range of Vienna’s club scene, from Hip Hop, Reggae and Funk via all shades of House and Techno to Dubstep, Drum & Bass and other styles of Bass music – here’s the full list of links to the many-faceted sound of Vienna:
