Oh shit. How do I post an image?

Good Dog (Good Dog), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 02:05 (thirteen years ago) link

it has to end in .jpg, .gif., .bmp, etc.

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Wednesday, 20 September 2006 02:08 (thirteen years ago) link

I think I relate to the Lawrence one the most.

Good Dog (Good Dog), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 02:20 (thirteen years ago) link

So basically they all look the same (except for Lawrence's God love him.) PAINT YOUR WALLS GUYS!

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 02:21 (thirteen years ago) link

i'm so envious of andre galluzzi's beautiful hardwood floors!

any cop (Jody Beth Rosen), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 02:34 (thirteen years ago) link

what a koze little place

geoff (gcannon), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 03:03 (thirteen years ago) link

i like villalobos' the best, he's got that dope chair and the implication of a second floor

bijoux (bijoux), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 03:16 (thirteen years ago) link

I feel liberated in not having painted my walls now. Thank you German vinyl addict people.

the dow nut industrial average dead joe mama besser (donut), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 03:17 (thirteen years ago) link

lol villalobos must be a giant!

a name means a lot just by itself (lfam), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 03:18 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

DougD (DougD), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 03:25 (thirteen years ago) link

let me know when they want to shoot the NYC edition...

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 03:30 (thirteen years ago) link

Sven Vath's setup reminds me of early Cronenberg movies

yours fondly, harshaw. (mrgn), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 06:13 (thirteen years ago) link

Tobias Rapp's living room to thread!

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 06:19 (thirteen years ago) link

I guess it's kinda fitting that Sven Väth still has those mid-nineties Goa trance speakers.

Tuomas (Tuomas), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 06:21 (thirteen years ago) link

But you do know that all of these rooms stink of stale spliffs and sweat, don't you?

Hot Hot Heat (Hot Hot Heat), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 06:22 (thirteen years ago) link

Yoy gotta love Väth's "embedded in the furniture" turntables though.

Tuomas (Tuomas), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 06:24 (thirteen years ago) link

Is anyone else kind of amused how few records are in Hell's room?

Telephonething (Telephonething), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 07:52 (thirteen years ago) link

maybe he doesn't keep them in his living room?

stirmonster (stirmonster), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 07:54 (thirteen years ago) link

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

Telephonething (Telephonething), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 07:54 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 08:03 (thirteen years ago) link

Magda, make the tea!

Nedpoleon (NedBeauman), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 08:24 (thirteen years ago) link


Heh! DJ Hell and the Weights Bench!

JohnFoxxsJuno (JohnFoxxsJuno), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 11:11 (thirteen years ago) link

I love/want DJ Koze's.

Konal Doddz (blueski), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 11:25 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

Jacob (Jacob), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 11:30 (thirteen years ago) link

Is Villalobos using the IKEA shelves for his vinyl?

Billy Dods (Billy Dods), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 11:36 (thirteen years ago) link

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

Sorted by Label and Producer apparently...

I liked the way his favorite record was "Yes sir I can boogie" everyone else being awfully cagy or elitist!

Kv_nol (Kv_nol), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 11:49 (thirteen years ago) link

These are great. But you should have put them up as a quiz, match room to DJ. I think I would have got Sven Hath straight away.

DJ Koze seems to live in the spare room at his mum's.

Bidfurd (Bidfurd), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 12:28 (thirteen years ago) link

villalobos looks like he lives in a mod-for-'67 ski lodge

katie quirk (dubplatestyle), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 12:43 (thirteen years ago) link

these are like algorithmic brain scans of their respective owners

Matos-Webster Dictionary (M Matos), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 12:47 (thirteen years ago) link

strongo: i would love to see the mid-90s equivalent of these
matos: bubble machines
matos: giant pleather couches
strongo: like, marc acardipane
matos: marc acardipane: s/m dungeon
strongo: with coin-op video games
matos: and d&d posters
matos: "my chosen motif is frank frazetta"

Amazing, i was thinking the same thing! :)

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 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm disappointed in Hawtin having the same computer chair as mine. It's the Ikea Allak: http://www.ikea.com.sg/images/products/pe103490%20allak%20swiv%20chr%20leather-artificial%20leather%20black.jpg

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.

Tobias Rapp (Tobias Rapp), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:05 (thirteen years ago) link

fast= fact

Tobias Rapp (Tobias Rapp), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:05 (thirteen years ago) link

i need this service!

stirmonster (stirmonster), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:09 (thirteen years ago) link

hawtins is exactly as i would imagine, back at the lodge, solar panels on the roof

Tommy Woodry (tommywoodry), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:09 (thirteen years ago) link

i'd bet money on the fact that villalobos has a housecleaner (either that or tia is a fucking saint).

philip sherburne (philip sherburne), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:09 (thirteen years ago) link

haha you effin namedropper

katie quirk (dubplatestyle), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:13 (thirteen years ago) link

I love the villalobos chair!

Dominique (dleone), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:20 (thirteen years ago) link

sorry, HIS GIRLFRIEND tia.
and yeah, i want that fucking chair too....

philip sherburne (philip sherburne), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:20 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

jed_ (jed), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:40 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

philip sherburne (philip sherburne), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 15:49 (thirteen years ago) link

ame's is the only one i would want to be in

elan, Tuesday, 18 September 2007 23:12 (twelve years ago) link

subway stop or bathhouse???

tricky, Tuesday, 18 September 2007 23:31 (twelve years ago) link

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

this is spot-on except where's the SCHWA poster and the pot plant?

moonship journey to baja, Tuesday, 18 September 2007 23:56 (twelve years ago) link

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

I'd like to see the rest of Villalobos' and Steve Bug's apartments

Malcolm Money, Tuesday, 18 September 2007 23:56 (twelve years ago) link

Ikea chair that is better than the one Richie Hawtin has.

jim, Saturday, 8 December 2007 01:19 (twelve years ago) link

No, I do not know why I am so fixated on this.

jim, Saturday, 8 December 2007 01:20 (twelve years ago) link

ps i like richie's half-canuck-half-german accent. north american eurotrash.

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 13 December 2007 22:07 (twelve years ago) link

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).

mehlt, Friday, 14 December 2007 14:56 (twelve years ago) link

I admit I haven't read the whole thread (just looked at the pretty pictures) but where was this originally - it looks like a magazine?

Ned Trifle II, Friday, 14 December 2007 15:37 (twelve years ago) link

Yes it was a spread in Groove (groove.de) magazine.

blunt, Friday, 14 December 2007 15:40 (twelve years ago) link

I thank you.

Ned Trifle II, Friday, 14 December 2007 17:23 (twelve years ago) link

There's just something about DJ Hell having a weight bench ...

I actually searched up this thread a few days ago and made Ellen Allien's place my computer desktop!
