Le Guess Who? presents 'The Big Playback', a podcast about all things music. For the occasion of Le Guess Who’s 15th Edition, we pay tribute to DJ Fitz- the man, the legend, the only artist to have been on every single lineup.
In this final episode of the series (revisit the first part here), we follow Fitz to Berlin and beyond, where he co-founds Kreuzberg venue West Germany, labors to propagate Turkish psych on dance floors across all Hipsterdom, and fully evolves into DJ Fitz- festival DJ extraordinaire.
Reflecting from present-day Portugal, Fitz shares his insights on what it means to be in the scene for 25 years, the lessons learned along the way, and what we get wrong about the relationship between the underground and big investment.
Featuring interviews with:
Paul Carlin, co-founder West Germany; Severin Most, City Slang; James Hakan Dedeoğlu, Bantmag; Kelman Duran, Producer; Eric Copeland of Black Dice, Sanae Yamada of Moon Duo; Brad Truax, Jeremy Glover & DJ Fitz.
Host of 'The Big Playback' is Margaret Munchheimer, an American visual artist and writer living in the Netherlands, and veteran Le Guess Who? supporter since 2012.
