The last two are pretty nice looking... these are more like workspaces/studios than living rooms surely... at least with Richie Hawtin's you can see through to some actual living space.

on preview: Yeah, Villalobos has that great wooden chair! I want one.

Probably the case. But still kind of an interesting contrast to the rest.

Telephonething (Telephonething), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 07:54 (ten years ago) Permalink

DJ Hell seems to have the largest flat, but it really goes to show how much more space one could have once you clear out all the records.

NoTimeBeforeTime (Barry Bruner), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 08:03 (ten years ago) Permalink

DJ T's is very neat.

Poor Lawrence, despite his pristine music it looks like he actually had to throw away hundreds of McDonalds bags that were lying around, before they took the photo.

Yeah Koze is the coolest one, and has the coolest house.

DJ T's horribly anal set-up makes me dislike the prissiness of his records even more now.

Lawrence is totally in character (when he looks out of the window there's probably some drug deal going on).

I was expecting Villalobos place to be a total mess.

Omar (Omar), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 13:13 (ten years ago) Permalink

I'm disappointed in Hawtin having the same computer chair as mine. It's the Ikea Allak:

Pretty bogstandard really. I would have thought that with the filthy minimal luchre he might be able to stretch for the much more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing Aras:

"Tobias Rapp's living room to thread!"

Hey Tim! It scares me a little bit, how even living rooms of non-DJs like myself tend to look as if... But what can you do. You have to put them somewhere.

Actually I think there's a connection between the bad second hand-Techno-records situation in Berlin and the fast that rent is cheap. You're never forced to carry your records to a storage room, you just get some more shelves. So you never miss paying for the storage room and the stuff never gets to thrift stores. Good for some people, bad for some people.

"DJ T's horribly anal set-up makes me dislike the prissiness of his records even more now."

But I have to defend DJ T. They have the photostory in Groove because a record store offers the service to DJs to clean up their collection and give it a certain order. DJ T was the first one who asked them to do it. That's why it looks the way it looks. And I heard it was a lot of work.

I really had to laugh when I saw Sven Vaeths set-up - golden record players! Red designer speakers! The carpet! The way the golden record players are sunk into this obviously very expensive wood thing!

Tobias Rapp (Tobias Rapp), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:22 (ten years ago) Permalink

wouldn't be surprised about a housecleaner. lawrence's is most appealing in some ways, while villalobos's is a bit more adult.

sven vath's place makes me shiver-- very scary carpet.

also, whoever said 'paint your walls': you are forgetting that these are Germans. white walls are standard, beautiful, and without clutter.

trees (treesessplode), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:23 (ten years ago) Permalink

GOD BLESS LAWRENCE. the rest of them are pretty much the same although Koze's has some personality at least.

jed_ (jed), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:39 (ten years ago) Permalink

i probably like Sven Vath's least, even though it looks the most expensive.

jed_ (jed), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:40 (ten years ago) Permalink

the first thing i thought when i saw most of these (save lawrence's): FUCK THESE GERMANS WITH THEIR ENOOOOOOOORMOUS (and probably very affordable) APARTMENTS. and i live in barcelona, for crying out loud - i'm hardly confined to new york proportions. but i look at some of these sprawling spaces and i feel, i dunno, like veal or something.

For a reasonable fee (plus transportation, food, lodging), I can give your collection the lived-in look of Lawrence with the order of DJ T (though purposefully facing out your records is kinda corny).

Hell's weight bench is awesome.

scrimhaw1837 (son_of_scrimshaw), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 19:11 (ten years ago) Permalink

That looks like 145 lbs, maybe? Hell strikes me as a low-reps/max-out-every-day type rather than a high-reps type. DAF is good weightlifting music, though I'm getting a vision of him listening to "Art Decade" while pushing it to the limit.

Lawrence obviously has a limit on owning things that aren't gray-black-white.

Andy_K (Andy_K), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 19:23 (ten years ago) Permalink

Also: Hell probably lifts with his scarf on.

Andy_K (Andy_K), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 19:25 (ten years ago) Permalink

I like how the records on display in DJ T's room totally sum up his aesthetic. But Koze trumps him with Moroder staring out at you.

that would just be depressing/aggravating. it would either be shots of destitute degenerate record collectors with boxes of records cluttered around tiny apartments, with barely enough room for the photographer to get in, or expansive lofts from people clearly being supported externally.

Jesus christ, how do people get so much money to buy so many records AND have such beautiful homes.

As much as I love sleek, orderly, neat interiors, I have so much respect for Lawrence's place. Unpretencious and down to business.

ellen allien = i hate it. all it's missing is a disgusting nagel print.

lawrence = i hate your music but your production space makes sense at least.

richie hawtin = excellent!! if it had an ethnic rug and more art i'd like it better than ATA's.

sven vath = looks like the waiting room of the parallax corporation

villalobos = rather sleazy looking. early 80s california coastal bachelor-pad chic. something tells me a lot of shit gets snorted off the glass table.

IRL, I'd probably be slumming it a bit with Lawrence's place, but I relate best to Andre Galuzzi's setup. I see a chair way off to the left (maybe there's an actual table next to it?) but otherwise there isn't any furniture other than stuff used to store music or equipment. I love the cage setup with the turntables, and he even "sorts" his records like I do -- a giant mess except for one separate pile for unheard records. The "sex is good" sign would have to go though.

"i probably like Sven Vath's least, even though it looks the most expensive."

have to disagree here....at least its got some style.;...nice origional wood units for decks,cozy rug,etc...just quality.
i mean every1 has their own style ..but this 1 is a fave for me .;)

My goodness, Dominik Eulberg's room is great, it's 100% bedroom of 16 year old male, for some reason, the first thing that came to mind was that I half expected to see old Nirvana posters.

And again, to the picture above, God, what a collection.

I want to see Afrika Bambataa's living room or something.

supposedly michael reinboth had to have his floors reinforced to take all that weight as his house was visibly cracking at the seams with the weight of 60 000 records.

"hey tim is "middle class" australian code for "actually liveable and comfy and non-bachelorish"?"

Yes! I wasn't trying to put them down. It's just that I had a sense that Ame's house was going to be nice and stylish but not self-consciously distinctive (a la Vath's, Hell's etc.). It looks like my living room!

Tim F, Tuesday, 18 September 2007 08:13 (nine years ago) Permalink

i bet the sound in kohncke's is awesome. i noticed the soul jazz tom moulton comp sticking out of the record box, too.

tricky, Tuesday, 18 September 2007 22:07 (nine years ago) Permalink

kohncke's looks like a very industrious hobo has fashioned himself a living space in a disused subway stop

eulberg's looks pretty much like what i expected from "the early 90s equivalent of these" i was talking about with matos up thread

yes, Dominik Eulberg's room look's like mine when i was in highschool (minus all the records of course)

I think that's more a result of living in England for the first 13 years of his life a la Slick Rick (While nonetheless someone like Ricardo moves to Germany at 3 and is touted as being Mr. Chile, but that's another story altogether).
