Disco In A Park On A Laptop
In 2010 Mirko Hecktor was described as one of the most influential people in Munich's Young Cultural Scene by Süddeutsche Zeitung and Discohistorian by TAZ.
Playing records since the early 90s, his debut as a music producer 'Chicago 77' was released on Don't Stop Recordings Frankfurt in 2009. Besides his national and international DJ gigs, Mirko holds residencies in Munich at Blumenbar, Goldene Bar, Club Kong and Charlie Bar. Here he invites and plays alongside local as well as international DJs such as Gerd, Munk, Metro Area, Motorcitysoul, Dani Siciliano, Thomas Meinecke and many more. He also hosts his weekly Bavarian wide terrestrial broadcasted Mjunik Disco radio show on Ego FM 100.8FM as well as Byte FM, Hamburg.
Mirko Hecktor on his mix: "I was taping this live mix, vinyl only except one track of mine. When it was finished I went into Munich's English Garden sat down in the grass and listened to it on my laptop. The sun came up on a Thursday morning and two hours later I found myself dancing like an Indian surrounded by the usual 50 naked people sunbathing in the morning light.
The mix takes a tiny look at 70s German Krautrock, European Prototechno, NYC New Wave Disco, Detroit Disco and Synth Techno, Chicago old school House, British Disco and Jazz-funk and The Sound Of Munich."
