LABELS: Lapsus / Forrest Walker / Weplayminimal



As a Dj Pete plays all over Europe. From Berlin to Barcelona or Antwerp everywhere his sound delights and people celebrate it. His residency is at FABRIK, Bayreuth which is well known for it’s good bookings. He already shared the Decks with some of the biggest names in business like: André Galluzzi, Marc Romboy, Ruede Hagelstein, Luna City Express, SUPERNOVA, AKA AKA, Felix Kröcher, Chasing Kurt, Hanne & Lore, Sidney Charles, Super Flu and Channel X just to name a few.

His classic CD-Setup allows him to concentrate on clear mixing but especially track selection is always on his focus.

“The perfect track selection lets me reach my goal in seeing people on the dancefloor with a big fulfilled smile enjoying the music.“

He ranges between DeepHouse, House and Techhouse to fulfill his self-paced aspiration to always play the perfect sound for every single gig. His sound often comes down with a phat baseline and some catchy vocals which makes people get into party mood. So you hear tracks of HNNY, Ben Pearce, Detriot Swindel, Nice7 and Huxley over to Hector Cuto, Santé, Doorly and Loco Dice in his Sets.

His online mixtapes enjoys great popularity with round about 30.000 plays on Soundcloud. When he mixes it is always important for him to tell a story and take his listeners on a journey through the ups and downs of an arc of suspense ending with a happyend. Principally you will never witness Pete stumbling in a set with balls to the wall because he follows a citation of Butch: „You can’t go to a Girl and stick directly your D***k in her P****y. It’s the same with DJing you got to start slow!“
