Rødhåd is one of techno’s fastest rising stars. The Berlin native has gained impressive ground over the last year thanks to consistent output on his Dystopian imprint and his epic closing sets at a certain legendary German discotheque. He makes a rare London appearance this Easter Sunday at ‘Gay Dance Party’ Chapter 10.
Rødhåd means 'red head.'
"NATURAL RED HAIR IS HARDER TO DYE THAN OTHER SHADES" – HAVE YOU EVER DIED YOUR HAIR? I DID MINE BLUE ONCE YEARS AGO… NOT A GOOD IDEA… OR A GOOD LOOK!
I remember I tried to colour it for a love parade party… but to be honest, to colour red hair is not the best idea 🙂
“REDHEADS HAVE LESS HAIR ON THEIR HEADS” – THIS IS NOT TRUE OF ME AND IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT IS WITH YOU EITHER?
It is like techno music – it's just growing and growing… cant see any difference to normal hairs. look at my beard !
“WHILE THE REST OF THE SPECIES IS DESCENDED FROM APES, REDHEADS ARE DESCENDED FROM CATS.” ― MARK TWAIN. FAN OF CATS?
Actually, i have two cats at home. And it 's always nice to come home and get a huge hug from them…
THE ANCIENT GREEKS BELIEVED THAT REDHEADS WOULD TURN INTO VAMPIRES AFTER THEY DIED – BEING A PERSON OF THE NIGHT WOULD YOU SAY THIS COULD STILL BE TRUE?
Haha, sometimes I feel like a vampire, yes. It s crazy, I do so many things at night, but still have the energy to handle my daily life under the week from 8 am in the morning on. Maybe i am more like a red robot – Kraftwerk!
REDHEADS ARE MEANT TO HAVE FIERY Tempers HOW ABOUT YOU? I HAVE A LONG FUSE BUT WHEN I SNAP… I SNAP!
I have to say, hate and beef take too much energy away – I try to be calm always. It doesn't make sense to loose power for such unimportant things… Keep cool !
WHAT WAS THE MUSIC OF YOUR TEENAGE REBELLION?
My father was really into rock music, so me too. Of course like all other Germans I liked Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode, but was never the biggest fan. My rebellion music is maybe still the techno music – the music which made nights into days and let me explored the city of Berlin!
FIRST AND LAST RECORD BOUGHT?
Too many ! 🙂
WHERE ARE YOU FROM, WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
In Berlin born and raised.
Now on the way from Bucharest to Stockholm!
WHY DO YOU DJ TOPLESS? DOESN'T IT GET A BIT COLD IN THE WINTER MONTHS?
I only play topless when I am short before circulatory collapse. It’s getting hot in here…
ANYWHERE YOU’VE BEEN ASKED TO PUT YOUR TOP BACK ON?
I just did it once, so luckily nobody asked for it 🙂
ARE YOU A KICK DRUM, HI HAT OR A SNARE? AND WHY?
I am the bass….
WHAT ARE YOU OBSESSED WITH AT THE MOMENT?
I buy so much nice stuff for my studio, I could actually life there…
WHAT'S YOUR ANSWER TO EVERYTHING?
WHAT’S THE BEST THING YOU'VE DONE SO FAR THIS YEAR
Definitely my taxes! And: making people happy with music!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
Always where I am – hopefully on Sunday it will be at Chapter 10 Warehouse!
