Sound 042 – Rødhåd

We’ve heard of Rødhåd and his music for some time but didn’t get to experience it live until DGTL Amsterdam earlier this year. Lucky for us, Rødhåd made an appearance in New York for Hyte 4th of July weekend where we once again got to experience his music live. Rødhåd has been somewhat elusive playing mostly European dates hitting New York perhaps only once, maybe twice a year. Just take a look at his schedule. He’s at Tomorrowland in Belgium. He’s at Dekmantel Festival in Amsterdam. He’s in Berlin, Ibiza, and Croatia after that. Not a U.S. date in sight. If Rødhåd comes to your city, take our advice and go hear him play. He will not disappoint.

Rødhåd has been at it since the 90s where he got his start organizing open-air parties on the outskirts of Berlin. He would quickly gain notoriety as a DJ eventually launching his own club night called Dystopian, which took place at some of the most legendary nightclubs in Berlin. And lets be honest. Berlin is the perfect place to launch a DJ career, especially if you play techno. Rødhåd would go on to play the most notorious club of them all, Berghain, and soon all other gigs would follow. He has played Trouw in Amsterdam. Concrete and Rex in Paris. Lux in Lisbon. Fuse in Brussels. And pretty much every major festival across Europe you can name. In 2012 he was named as “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” by Resident Advisor. Needless to say, Rødhåd has had a very successful career. Again, if he comes to your city go hear him play. In fact, run! You shouldn’t miss it. IMG_3230

A more recent set of his has caught our attention and it comes from Ultra Music Festival’s Resistance which took place this past weekend in Split, Croatia. Rødhåd delivers his signature techno like only he can. This set has a “dystopian” intensity, which for us, gives the music such an ominous vibe. It’s not the darkest we’ve heard Rødhåd but there’s not a second of this set we don’t like. Listen to his set at the link below!!!
