The Not So Serious Session 6 with Claus Voigtmann

BILLBOARD-notsoserioussessionsNOLINK

Two years ago London based Bavarian Claus Voigtmann launched a new London night alongside fiancée Isis Salvaterra called toi.toi. Showcasing some of the finest electronic musicians and DJ’s from across the world with a strict ethos on quality; toi.toi. has gone on to host some of the most talked about Live sets, the rarest of ‘DJ’s DJ’s and a fiercely loyal crowd of electronic music lovers. A young budding DJ and producer himself, Claus naturally filled the role of resident DJ from their very first party and over the last two years, has proved himself to have not only impeccable taste, but a refined technical flair as a DJ - his ability to hold his own amongst the reputable headliners each month never faltering. As this week’s guest on ‘The Not So Serious Sessions’ we’d like to wish Claus, Isis and toi.toi. a very happy birthday!

Every day I thank my lucky stars that...

...I am alive and kicking and got the freedom to do whatever I want!

The first time I heard...

 ...David Sylvian was when my dad showed me some of his work quite a long time ago ...I am amazed by this man's creativity and musicality. 

The sexiest thing in a woman is...

...when she knows what she wants and I know she wants me.

The last thing I added to my studio...

...is a bed...it's such an amazing thing...It's a monophonic hardware tool that fits perfectly into my studio workflow. The noises it generates are very calm and soothing yet very powerful. Once switched to polyphonic mode it can be operated by two people and four hands...that's when it unleashes its full potential. 

David Cameron...

...regularly uses his bicycle to commute to work. In early 2006 he was photographed cycling to work followed by his driver in a car carrying his belongings. His Conservative Party spokesperson subsequently said that this was a regular arrangement for Cameron at the time. Cameron's bicycle was stolen in May 2009 while he was shopping. It was recovered with the aid of The Sunday Mirror. His bicycle has since been stolen again from near his house.

The one genre that I really can’t stand...

...is German Schlager/Folk - it's a genre that not everyone might know here in the UK, but I'll try to explain: it does not take much to make Schlager, just take 80% of Essex add even more fake tan, then put those young people in Lederhosen and make them sing how beautiful love and life is. You will see them jumping through green meadows in the Alps surrounded by half dead 90 year olds trying to move their artificial hips....well I guess u get the idea...
