Well, he was born in the country called Yugoslawia, left it at age 20, 1991 as war started and became Berlin resident, and as he says, Berlin is the city, the place where he is at home, the metropol where the world is meeting. So will be the set he plays on the festival, a meltingpoint of different styles of underground music and soundscapes.
“After more than twelve years of experience playing electronic bass guitar with bands of several styles of music
such as Jazz, Hip-Hop, Rock, Funk and Experimental, André Schöne is now mainly working as a DJ and producer of
His DJ-sets are dancefloor orientated and stretch throughout jackin’ Chicago House and Acid to bangin’ Techno and trippy Minimal.
