Swedish Berlin based DJ with a hiphop focus.
The White Lie story, 100% true:
White Lie (aka Whitest Hiphop DJ Alive) is a Swedish hiphop DJ based in Berlin, Germany. It all started out in an rage from always seeing the same thing at Berlins clubs: a guy in a cap, staring down at mixer table, playing electronic music.
“Later on I realized that I just didn’t found type of venues, or the good DJ's wearing a cap, but the damage was already done – fortunately! Without ever seeing a mixer table before I got my first gig, I got a 15 minutes lesson where someone pointed at play, pause and master volume, and I was ready to go. It sounded horrible, but people danced. A lot.
So I kept doing it. Kept doing it to encourage more women to take up the space. Kept doing it so I could play my type of hiphop that’s not only Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z. And after a while I realized that I love it - and that I’m good at it.”
White Lie has two styles let's the beats speak, but wouldn't play any crappy lyrics, hiphop is always going to be the base - but the sets and mixes are often going soulful, funk och disco. White Lie is ¼ of the crew Unbreakable Beats that’s throwing hiphop events every third week, and one of the artist collaborators in Golden Mint Productions.
