Digital Music Maker.
Livingroom Producer and Club / Raves DJ.
My way as DottorK started half-life ago.
I grew up in Palma de Mallorca on the golden age of Minimal Techno and discovered my own interest on music production after live listening living legends like Ken Ishii, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Dave Clarke, Dubfire, Carl Cox, A.Kowalski…. freaking out with Setups like those that Richie Hawtin showed up along the years, and exploring old legends from the “Techno-Pop and Electronic Body Music era”, what i heard from my parents as i was a child.
I made there my first experiments with software DAWs.
I started calling myself “DottorK” as I started playing doing little Live or DJing performances as hobby and at little raves for me and my friends for many (many) years, but however my style went off my living room and today I played for more people than i never thought.
After 7 years living in Germany, I’ve moved back to Mallorca (Spain) mid-2020
I started my “DottorK public life” in 2019 playing in a little location in Schwerin (Komplex, Germany)Live @Komplex Schwerin as my friend Emil wanted to celebrate his farewell party. A couple of months later we were playing, together again, at the “Soho Radio Show” in RadioX (Frankfurt am Main), invited from our later supporter by die Praxis, Steve Shoog.
But that wasn’t enough, we wanted to start some type of “DJ Collective”, so we talked with many friends around Germany looking for ideas and support and we did it, starting a project called “Die Praxis” and giving a little “first meeting” night in August 2019 with Kinetic Music, a connection we had with Köln (thanks my friend Eva Lakritz), at one of the hearths of the nightlife in the Hansestadt Hamburg, the Fundbureau .
That wasn’t all since the show must go on, and we found another underground location in the world Capital of Techno Berlin; The Void Club (November 2019).
This time was a full presentation for “our family” (the original collaborators of our project) supported by our friend Eva Lakritz and her Colleages from Kinetic Music Köln (Alalkih, Kiel Nagel) and I AM BAM, a special guest with a powerful sound who released for labels like Suara, Terminal M or Octopus Recordings.
“Die Praxis” still alive in 2020, but stopped all programmed events and future programming due to the worldwide “Corona alert”, so sadly we ended 2020 as we started it.
Stay Alert, and BE CAREFUL!
I published a couple of things on the streaming platforms, but I don’t really “produce music”.
You can search for DottorK at Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Napster, BandCamp, Beatport…. or somewhere else, and probably you’ll find some of my work.
The biggest part of this projects are lost with the years, but I started end 2018 to publish some of the tracks I finished since them, sharing strange melodies on irregular formats on almost all major streaming platforms.

But that was not all, we found another Club to continue delivering Techno; The Void Club Berlin (November 2019).
This time was a full presentation of “our family” (Emil, Aur, Shoog and Paolo) supported by my friend Eva Lakritz and her Colleagues from Kinetic Music Köln (Alalkih and Kiel Nagel) and I AM BAM, a special guest with a powerful sound who released for labels like Suara, Terminal M or Octopus Recordings.
We had a couple of events for 2020, like my own Farewell-Party in Schwerin, another presentation in a little club in Frankfurt am Main, the “official debut” in our own house, Palma de Mallorca….
But it wasn’t a good year in general, not only for parties, so I only played once in a private little event this year in Mallorca.
