Stephan Bodzin - DJ Mix March 2008
Thu 15th May, 2008 ITM-FMin
Born in the northern German countryside in 1969, Stephan Bodzin started dabbling in music at an early age due to his father, also an artist and musician, whose studio contained all the magic sound-machines like the ARP2600, Memorymoog, Polysix and many others (today’s producers only know them as software-plug-ins).
After moving to the big city of Bremen, where Stephan steadily kept on to improving & built up his studio set-up, he got in touch with the experimental theatre scene and began to finding own platform to express his artistic and musical visions in compositions for several plays (including works for the established Goethe Theatre in Bremen and the infamous Ikarus Dancing-Theatre from Austria).
In December 2004, his friend and global techno player Thomas Schumacher asked him to produce Electrochemie, Schumacher’s project with his girlfriend Caitlin Devlin, and his own “Schumacher” tracks. The outcome of those collabos, released on the labels Get Phyical and Spiel-Zeug Schallplatten, struck the worldwide club-scene like a bomb, nonetheless because of Stephan’s special skills, which can also be heard in the two albums of both projects, which were released in 2006.
In 2005 Mr. Bodzin, started concentrating on his own career. The Solo-Single “Caligula / Marathon Man”, which came out on Systematic in December 2005 was his first step into the spotlight and created global interest in the artist Stephan Bodzin. Another big thing was his production work with Mr. Systematic Marc Romboy, which resulted in their Luna EP on Systematic and the tracks “House Ya” and “Jigsaw”, for Romboy’s debut LP “Gemini”.
The List of labels, which released Bodzin productions in 2005 & 2006 reads like the “who’s who” in the innovative club music scene: Get Physical, Datapunk, International Deejay Gigolo, Systematic, Giant Wheel, Spiel-Zeug Schallplatten, Confused, Dance Electric and Great Stuff. At the moment Stephan Bodzin is busy starting up his own label with the helping hand of label-god Jan Langer and he’s preparing a second career as a DJ and Live Act!
