GANGSTERCAST 86 – TAPESH

 

Tapesh has been around the block and then some. Growing up in clubs owned by his father and having interest in all types of musical genres has made the multicultural German a true fanatic when it comes to play and produce music. He’s been making music since his teens and never stopped tweaking, improving and looking for new types of genres to produce. The same goes for his dj-ing. Having released on labels such as Mobilee, Hot Creations, Defected and Suara one can easily tell the variety of musical styles Tapesh has interest in producing. Besides being a studio monster, Tapesh loves touring around the world playing his trademark sound or spend time on Ibiza and play at his ‘Ants’ residency at Ushuaia.

 

Wanting to always reach the next level music wise, it’s no surprise Tapesh is starting his own label. The imprint is going to be called Akulee and the first release will be by Tapesh himself. The three track EP is called ‘Panus-Fasciatus’ and will be out in May 2016. Akulee is focussing on the high-quality areas of house and techno. Stay tuned for future releases by other respectable artists on Akulee well.

When we sat down with Tapesh we asked how does this mix represented him as an artist to which he explained, “I wanted this mix to be crazy, even crazier than when I’m DJ’ing. The good thing about podcasts is that they give you this possibility. I hope that his mix shows my versatility as an artist. I’m into a lot of different kinds of house music and music in general. I always want my music and mixes to be funky and a bit crazy, I think you can hear this back in this Gangstercast.” He went on to say “You jus know when you attend a Sneak gig or I’m a House Gangster party that you will only hear real house music. There are no compromises and I have a lot of respect for that. Last summer I was asked with whom I would love to collaborate in the studio. I had to choose a DJ from the whole ANTS @ Ushuaia line-up for the summer of 2015. Sneak was my definite choice. He started on a real young age and is still on top of his game, he really is a hero for me.”
