Sven Jozwiak’s fascination for electronic music grew from a close affinity to Berlin’s lively electro scene. Years of clubbing, dancing and listening to what the city had on offer lead to an urge to participate himself. He wanted to become a DJ, so he bought some turntables at the age of 22 and began his career in the MOMA summer of 2006 after spontaneously taking over the decks at one of the many legendary Berlin afterhours. It worked out and his passion for DJing had been awakened.
He was able to improve his skills through playing at parties like Klangspiel and the famous Berlin HOMESWEETHOME, as well as at other events organized by the KASSETTE label. Soon just playing music wasn’t enough anymore and so he started to produce his own tracks. Two years later in 2008 his first track, recorded in cooperation with Tassielo Ippenberger (Pan-Pot), was published at 60SEC RECORDS. Tracks at labels like KASSETTE Rec, QT RECORDS, UPON YOU, Arera Sur and K:lender then followed and today he can now look back on an impressive discography. In the meantime his Djing brought him to legendary clubs such as Bar25, Kater Holzig and arenaclub as well as to festivals such as MELT!, with each performance enabling him to improve his skills continuously.
When Sven takes to the turntables he enchants the audience with his mixture of house, tech-house and minimal vocal techno. The percussive, slightly melancholic and often playful sound takes control of Berlin’s dance floors and his feeling for beats and atmosphere is as impressive as his lively, passionate and beguiling performances. But he never loses sight of his goals. His favorite clubs are those with low ceilings that the audience can actually touch and thus provide an intimate and inspirational energy to his sets. Such an atmosphere inspires him to completely submerge himself into his DJ set. Then he doesn’t just play the tracks, he lives them. Sven about Sven: „DJing is the best, most fantastic, greatest thing. If all are dancing, kissing, just being happy and satisfied, having fun and simply enjoying the feeling of freedom, I am happy too.”
He finds great enrichment within his musical work through close cooperation with other DJs and musicians. At the height of the Berlin electro scene’s “minimal” hype he met Mert. Sven and Mert complement each other perfectly and they have been producing and experimenting with music since 2008. Together they are searching for one language to realize their vision of grooving dance floors in a certain special way. Their tracks are characterized by drifting, dynamic sounds in both the sparkling highs and the majestic solid bass depths.
During a summer at Bar25, Sven found himself playing a DJing marathon set together with Empro. The congenial project „Empro & Jozwiak“ went on to publish several tracks in 2010. Tracks from an upcoming project with Jan Fuchsberg will be published under the working name “Sven Jozwiak & Fuchsberg“.
