- Palms Trax
- The Black Madonna
It is an enormous pleasure to welcome The Black Madonna as our next thirteen week resident, presenting We Still Believe every Friday in April, May and June.
XOYO marks the mid-point of The Black Madonna’s residency with the amazing Palms Trax and nd_baumecker.
A relative newcomer to the scene, Palms Trax aka Jay Donaldson has proven in this short time that dance music and DJing is where he should be. Donaldson traveled to Berlin following university on a kind of whim, a whim that certainly worked wonders for the boy from Somerset. Despite not planning to stay there, he secured a six-month internship with a music PR company in the German Capital, as well as further work at a booking agency and as a freelance writer. His involvement and interest in Berlin’s music scene eventually saw him hosting his own ‘Cooking With Palms Trax’ on Berlin Community Radio. Palms Trax now boats an illustrious catalogue of releases and a DJ style that reflects his prestige in the studio, and we can’t wait to see what Berlin has done the lad from the West Country.
ND_Baumecker has lived and worked all over Germany – Frankfurt/Main, Heidelberg, and Mannheim – before settling in Berlin in 2004. DJing for over 25 years, ND_Baumecker has refused to subscribe to just one genre in his varied career in both production and performing: “I’m always open to anything between the brut and the tender”. He now runs his extremely successful Freundinnen in Berlin since 2004 and has secured himself a residency at the world-famous panorama bar. Expect expert mixing of vocal-driven tracks with a heavy emphasis on funk and disco.
