Two hours outside of Berlin in the city of Hamburg Germany, lives Jacob Groening. Jacob teamed up with Daniel Wilhelm in 1998 to make Tanzen hilft! 2 DJ’s – eine Idee! Das ist “Tanzen hilft!”. Tanzen Hilft, fittingly means dancing helps.
Today we are focusing on Jacob’s solo set, Chairoplane 011. I came upon this set this last year and I haven’t been able to shake it from my mind. It begins slow and ambient, as though the soundtrack to a thoughtful foreign film. From here we build slowly, and eleven minutes in we are taken into a series of beats and piano that finally settles into a pulsing set, slower in bpm but so delicate and heartfelt. Vincenzo’s voice warms us further into the hour and a half set, and we are off, our heads nodding all the way.
