My name is Jacob Groening, I grew up in northern Germany and I do music since more than 20 years. I run the label Kamai music and i live in Berlin. I love Berlin and i love music!

Q: Favorite Club/Venue and why does it stand out from the rest?

Rummelsbucht Berlin, its one of the last Berlin places which made Berlin what it is. People come to have a good time and for the music. Unfortunately clubs like that are closing one after another in Berlin these days due to gentrification


Q: Analog or Digital? And why?

I prefer analog, I need the knobs and the analog warmth. When I am touring I use digital plugins to create ideas and later I recreate it with the analog synths.


Q: What was the driving force that got you into DJing/Producing and when?

When my brother got turntables I always sneaked in and made some mixes… since then it hit me.


Q: If you were to have a superpower, what would it be and why?

I would be  Sustainable Superhero and force everyone to not use plastic anymore where it is possible... we have to really change our habits.


Q: If you had to play 1 more track at your favorite club, what track would it be and why?

Let me think about it!
