Sebastian Mullaert (Minilogue) – dj set
Sebastian Mullaert is probably most famous for his recent success with his Minilogue alias, releasing the album Animals on Cocoon Recordings last year. During the last years he’s been touring heavily around the globe both as live performer with Minilogue and as a dj under his own name. He have also been producing music under the name IMPS, Son Kite and Ooze.
As a dj Sebastian is working all over the place mixing everything from dub, jazz and beats thru ambient and electronica up to techno and house in various forms. The musical direction of his sets is of course depending on place and time, night time at the club, daytime at a mountain festival or at an art exhibition sounds dramatically different. The red line through Sebastian’s dj set is the aim of storytelling and building, this is also why his set’s rarely is shorter than 4 hours and most often much longer … His favorite set starts when the club or party open, building the music from nothing up to the sweaty smoky time of the night.
