Don Rogall has been creating various new music movements for 3 decades with incomparable artistic freedom, delivering the soundtrack of subculture in over 120 venues in his town Berlin and over 100 genre-defining clubs in 18 countries all over the world.
From the jazzier beginnings in the depth of Rare grooves to sampling culture and the avant-garde of 90s electronica & Headz to Raves & House, Dub, Drum'n'Bass and all types of breakbeats to various live-sound systems.
He is heavily into the early beginnings of DJ roots of 50s and 60s music based on Rhythm, Blues, Soul & early Rock'n'Roll, as well as pop punk-culture to many influences from around the globe and a passion for Exotica music and soundtrack related stuff.
Don has contributed to Arts Festivals, created soundtracks for his own Burlesque, Variety & Circus Sideshows, as well as many fashion shows of established designers, programming playlists for corporate, bars, hotels, performing artists, mixed sound for motion pictures, taught upcoming artists and DJs (also at the Berlin DJ Music Academy) and had countless own releases in various musical genres with several bands. With one of them, Nylon, he headlined the German Spiegel magazine for modernizing German music.
