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.

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

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

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

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.

thats lawrence's, not hawtin's

señor citizen (eman), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 16:15 (ten years ago) Permalink

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).

Andy_K (Andy_K), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 18:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

Psshhh it's easy to keep your room that clean and organized when you're on coke all day.

yes. and one of them is sven vath.

I totally want to see Black Metal Cribs or Grime Cribs! Also the thing on Lord of the Decks 2 where they visit Wiley's studio/apartment is like the best thing ever.

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.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 20:11 (ten years ago) Permalink

i'm a little bit terrified of the kind of porno they shoot at sven's place.

bleep (bleep), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 20:29 (ten years ago) Permalink

Not surprising at all to see Hell a weightlifter: look at the Gigolo logo.

Michael F Gill (Michael F Gill), Wednesday, 20 September 2006 22:01 (ten years ago) Permalink

who is the dude with the marine girls as his most valuable record?

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

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.

I think it's a tie between ricardo and sven's respective homes for my favourite though

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

less records, more bowie/iron.

i like ATA's

beautiful ethnic rug(s)
warholian multiple poster hanging
mix of old and new
very very few records
looks like a room you can actually do stuff in
could use a plant, though

my favorite thing about ata's: those big paintings turned toward the wall, so all you see is the frames and blank canvas backing... the intrigue! like, is dude a gallerist in his spare time??

tiefschwarz = looks exactly like what my dj friend did to his old bedroom when he was living in his parent's basement. obv doesn't spend much time at home

andre galluzi = tedious record nerd

dj koze = let's not give the guy too much credit for living in his parent's basement

dj t = extremely tedious record nerd

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

dj hell = terrible! dining in your sleeping space? "excuse me, helmut, i can't enjoy this spaghetti you made me, your weight bench reeks!" "pardon me while i get off the couch and bang my head on this low japanese lamp"

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.

i imagine basic channel living together in a great cavernous building, like every room a gymnasium

a name means a lot just by itself (lfam), Thursday, 21 September 2006 02:53 (ten years ago) Permalink

I can relate most to Hawtin's setup as it's quite similar to my lofty office space at home, and Villalobos' is most like my living room (although that's a stretch!).

Andrew (enneff), Thursday, 21 September 2006 02:56 (ten years ago) Permalink

i like how tiefschwartz has those precariously balanced vertical record stacks just teetering on the brink.

hawtin's is pretty damn nice (nice gear too [/geek]. i'd like to see what those doors open out onto
