Hot City Orchestra Hot City Orchestra Hot City Orchestra is a reformation of a band, which was originally formed in 1998. At the age of 17, Arno Völker (Einzelkind) and Simon Birkenfeld became friends and started making Drum and Bass music together. They toured all over Germany with their Record Label and had residencies at Robert Johnson in Offenbach and Tanzhaus West in Frankfurt. After gaining years of experience within the breakbeat scene, Arno went on to become Einzelkind with releases on Playhouse, Cocoon, White and his own imprints La Peña, Jax and Pressure Traxx as well as worldwide DJ Gigs. Simon was still focusing on his breakbeat career for another year, making an album with a UK Drum and Bass legend, but it was never released. He stopped making music and started focusing on his career in PR and Marketing, where he mostly worked on music and art projects. During this time, the long-time friends Arno and Simon came up with the idea to launch the blog-network-project www.disco-very.net Now, 16 years later, after making first beats together, the boys are back! A tiny bit older, much wiser,more handsome and around 50 BPM slower.
