Before heading out to Oslo to play Det Gode Selskab next Sunday,Philipp Boss created a mix for the collective’s DJ profile mix series.
Philipp Boss is a 24 years old DJ, music producer, sound artist and founder of the label Einfach Hören [ˈaɪ̯nfax ˈhøːrən] (german for “just listen”). He is part of a new generation of Frankfurt/Offenbach Producers and DJs centered around the newly established GOSU record store. Growing up in a suburb of Frankfurt am Main during the late 90ies, Boss and his friends founded a band, spending a lot of time together everyday jamming blues, funk, soul, reggae and rocknroll music in their small rehearsal room.
In the late 00s Boss started digging vinyl and diving more into electronic music. With the age of majority, Frankfurt’s nightlife and its clubs became accessible. The infamous Robert Johnson Club as a constant source of inspiration in mind, Boss started producing electronic music and soon developed his own remarkable style by blending various genres. The greatest motif in his productions is always groove and rhythm, rather than big build-ups and massive drops.
With 12” releases on Pager Records, Rawax Motorcity, a double-album on La Peña Records and appearances on his own Label Einfach Hören, Boss constantly shapes his interpretation
