- Philipp Kipphan


The 26 year old DJ and producer Philipp Kipphan is based in the city of Heidelberg, in south germany, running his studio, office and his own regular clubnight. As a young kid he grew up with the music from bands such as Metallica, AC/DC and Nirvana. His dad recorded him tapes with those bands songs, that young Philipp listened to over and over again. His DJ carreer on the other hand began with his fascination for "The Prodigy". Soon he started playing at local Breakbeat events. So he discovered his love for straight and rough beats, that he found in Techno. This diversity of influences on his music career lead him to be the musician Philipp Kipphan is today. His productions are fresh and driving and he is daring for something new, regardless of the trend. As Techno didn’t have a homebase in Heidelberg at that time, he started his own clubnight in 2009 that he called "Auf & Davon", (up and away). Philipp Kipphan impresses his audience by his collection of records, which includes a mixture of extraordinary and impulsive tracks. His sound is a crossover between dubtechno and straight techno, especially representing rough and distorted sounds with a dirty touch. His reputation spread like wildfire and soon lead him to DJ gigs all around the country, from Berlin to Munich. 2010 was the time for his first guestshows in other european countries beeing an ebassador of pulsing techno.
