Christoffer “Luftwaffel” McWalland is getting ready for summer, just look at that hat… The Skranglejazz mainstay and DJ has been a regular fixture at Jæger since its inception, often sharing the booth with with Petter Celius and Oskar Pask. Like his fellow Skranglers, he brings that quirky Skranglejazz charm and charisma to the booth through mixes and music with an emphasis on a good time. On his last visit, a Sunday night in May where the cloud parted ways to shine a bit light on the occasion, we opted to hit record and catch a little bit of that magic on tape.
Luftwaffel brought a dynamic set, replete with eighties funk and spacey disco, traversing an unconventional path through a selection of records that bound with the energy of a nascent summer. It’s House music at its most unencumbered, a music for the purpose of joyous occasion. The tracks very much stand on their own as significant features in the annals of House music and through his Æmix Luftwaffel takes us over peaks and through troughs of feeling as he brings them together. It’s an enigmatic mix for an enigmatic personality.
