Originally from a diverse self-taught background of Free Jazz, Rap and Psychedelic Rock, Niklas pushed more and more into electronic territory as part of two surprisingly well-received releases in 2018. One is Wolf Müller & Niklas Wandt’s “Instrumentalmusik von der Mitte der World” (Growing Bin Records) , a contemporary fusion of dub, organic percussion, New Age vibes and Italo House infused with just a mild goofiness. The other is the debut seven inch of his German Wave duo Neuzeitliche Bodenbeläge (Themes For Great Cities). Now a couple of years and loads of eclectic detours into it, a Niklas Wandt DJ set reflects his diversity of interests with as little care for genre and imposed boundaries as possible. Fringe dance musics from percussion and library records, spiritual jazz, Balearic pop, pumping Wave and Industrial, far out Kosmisch synth excursions Don’t expect dead-serious four-to-the-floor. Stretches of hypnotic repetition easily detour and resolve into mildly goofy moments to make you smile.
His regular parties called “Smells” at Berlin’s Sameheads find him inviting an array of like-minded artists every couple of months.
