 - Boot Slap


Berlin based DJ/Live act Boot Slap is the meeting of minds of two artists who were brought together by their mutual love of house music. Whilst their musical collaboration was fused by this common thread, their backgrounds are quite different, which creates an exciting dynamic to their productions and live shows. Christian has been a Berlin native since birth. Having grown up East of the Berlin Wall, he absorbed the unique spirit of freedom that came along with the fall of the wall in 1989. There were new spaces opening up in the city that were instantly being explored by an unleashed youth who were thirsty for freedom and excitement. Techno became the soundtrack to this new way of life. These experiences have defined Christian’s approach to his music and creativity. Takis meanwhile came from the South West of Germany. Growing up near a US Army barracks his musical roots were characterized by American Hip Hop culture and everything related to it like break dancing and street art. In his teens he started producing beats, writing lyrics in English and performing as a rapper. It was during this time that he realized his love of performing and entertaining on stage. He also developed instrument skills on keyboards, guitars, drums and all kinds of percussion, this developed his passion for composing and songwriting.
