“Steffen Berkhahn AKA Dixon and Gerd Janson are two of the hardest working and most celebrated DJs in Germany. Ranked number one on Resident Advisor’s yearly “Top DJs” poll from 2013 to 2016, Dixon deploys his subtle and meticulous edits in sets that blur the lines between house and techno. He’s also the co-founder of Innervisions, the Berlin-based label synonymous with house and electronic music that traverses the line between the progressive underground and the commercially viable. A music journalist and RBMA lecture host-turned-DJ, Janson, like Berkhan, co-owns a record label and spins in clubs around the world. His label Running Back is responsible for blistering analog house releases, and he is a remixer and producer of note, both on his own and as Tuff City Kids with Phillip Lauer. He also co-headlines the long-running Liquid club night at Frankfurt’s Robert Johnson with Thomas Hammann.
In their lecture at Red Bull Music Academy Berlin 2018, Berkhan and Janson discussed the highs and lows of their jobs as label bosses and full-time DJs, the joy of the All Night Long concept and the ever-changing nature of the electronic music landscape.
