Dr Joiner's surgery is open every 1st Thursday for Consultation Hour, a very unique blend of synth & electronica from the 1970s to the present day, from 9pm on Safehouse Radio.
Dr. Joiner started DJing in the mid-nineties. He quickly specialized in Detroit, minimal techno, Schranz and acid with artists like DBX, Wolfgang Voigt, Neil Landstrumm and Moritz von Oswald - labels like Peacefrog, Basic Channel, Chain Reaction. He himself listened to techno trance from labels like Superstition, Harthouse and Eye-Q.
Last year Joiner switched from Serato and vinyl mixing to digital formats and expanded his musical spectrum to include melodic techno. But his heart still beats for straight techno - direct and without frills. His sets are characterized by a steady increase in tempo and hardness, which - at least in live performance - still likes to culminate in Neil Landstrumms classic Finnish Deception: Boom!
His penchant for straightforward music can already be found in the influences of hard Westcoast rap since the late 80s and Kraftwerk, but also early EBM and Industrial with parallels in the early Neue Deutsche Welle from Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft and Palais Schaumburg to Andreas Dorau and current releases such as from the Kernkrach label and bands like Kühle Matrosen. Joiner is currently part of the popular Hamburg NAUTILUS collective, which organizes club events and techno open-airs in and around Hamburg.
Since mid-2020, Dr. Joiner has joined Safehouse Radio and delivers his two-hour show "Dr. Joiner's Consultation-Hour", "the show where the rainbows are dancing their butts off" every first Thursday of the month. In the first hour Dr. Joiner presents crazy and confused, funny and strange, hard and soft tracks from many years of electronic music: "The madness goes on", "pearls from the realm of unconscious" - broken English free house. In the second hour Dr. Joiner boards a feisty techno set with current hammers directly for the club.
So, folks, "Join the Joiner" here on Safehouse Radio!
Mikey Jay spins his magic every 3rd Wednesday from 11pm with the greatest techno sounds around with his show Symbolism.
Many years a raver, many years a DJ, Mikey has an unwavering passion for what he does and the music he loves.
His taste is by no means exclusive, drawing on influences from virtually all styles of dance music over the last 30 years.
Whilst he can enjoy most styles, it is Techno that makes his heart beat deeply, right from the early days of Reactivate and the work of greats such as CJ Bolland, Sven Vath, Mentasm and Joey Beltram.
In the UK he was an avid fan of Colin Faver and Colin Dale, slamming out techno on Kiss when it was still a pirate station.
In the mid 90s, when the "age of the superclub" hit, Mikey was far happier in the legendary Club UK in Wandsworth, in the Tribal Temple where he was a regular, or its reincarnation, The Complex in Islington. He was also proud to be a member of the exclusive techno cult, "Lost".
Mikey loves progressive and melodic Techno/House and the whole "renaissance sound" but it is the harder edged pumping/acid techno that he spins these days.
"Symbolism" on Safehouse, is about symbolising techno in its many forms, a blend of dark and light sounds, drawing influences from any of the many that Mikey loves to play.
Expect surprises. Expect underground. Expect pounding acid techno!
