Dr Joiner's surgery is open every 1st Thursday for Consultation Hour, a very unique blend of synth & electronica from the 1970s to the present day, from 9pm on Safehouse Radio.
Dr. Joiner started DJing in the mid-nineties. He quickly specialized in Detroit, minimal techno, Schranz and acid with artists like DBX, Wolfgang Voigt, Neil Landstrumm and Moritz von Oswald - labels like Peacefrog, Basic Channel, Chain Reaction. He himself listened to techno trance from labels like Superstition, Harthouse and Eye-Q.
Last year Joiner switched from Serato and vinyl mixing to digital formats and expanded his musical spectrum to include melodic techno. But his heart still beats for straight techno - direct and without frills. His sets are characterized by a steady increase in tempo and hardness, which - at least in live performance - still likes to culminate in Neil Landstrumms classic Finnish Deception: Boom!
His penchant for straightforward music can already be found in the influences of hard Westcoast rap since the late 80s and Kraftwerk, but also early EBM and Industrial with parallels in the early Neue Deutsche Welle from Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft and Palais Schaumburg to Andreas Dorau and current releases such as from the Kernkrach label and bands like Kühle Matrosen. Joiner is currently part of the popular Hamburg NAUTILUS collective, which organizes club events and techno open-airs in and around Hamburg.
Since mid-2020, Dr. Joiner has joined Safehouse Radio and delivers his two-hour show "Dr. Joiner's Consultation-Hour", "the show where the rainbows are dancing their butts off" every first Thursday of the month. In the first hour Dr. Joiner presents crazy and confused, funny and strange, hard and soft tracks from many years of electronic music: "The madness goes on", "pearls from the realm of unconscious" - broken English free house. In the second hour Dr. Joiner boards a feisty techno set with current hammers directly for the club.
So, folks, "Join the Joiner" here on Safehouse Radio!
