room of the week 46 – Alex Flitsch

Alex Flitsch

Connaisseur Recordings label owner Alex Flitsch from Offenbach, Germany is the owner of this wonderful living room. A solid wall of sound with a DJ booth made out of the Expedit series. Let’s see what Alex tells us about DJing and his music room in a little interview.

Hey Alex, great to have a feature about you on our site. Tell us and our readers, when did you start being a DJ? “I’ve had my first public DJ-gig in 1994.”

A real turning point in your life? What happened since then? “I run Connaisseur Recordings since 2005 and I have been a DJ and record collector for more than half of my life. I live with my wife Hilary and our daughter Ava in Offenbach, close to Frankfurt.”

How many records do you have in your collection? “Around 6000 I think. During the time I studied, I sold many records. Looking back, most of them are easily missed, however for some, I could cry nowadays. Since that time, I have never sold a record again.”

What equipment do you use in your living room? “2 x Technics SL1210M3D, 1x Vestax PCV 275, 1x Stanton C314 CD-Player, 2x Tannoy Reveal Active Monitors and 1x Alesis S1 Active Subwoofer”

Is there a all-time favourite record? I don’t have THE all-time favourite record. I have favourite records for several periods of my life and special moments and situations. I have my favourite records for the morning, for daytime and for the night. I have my favourite records for when I am sad or I am happy and all of them can change again. This question usually implies searching for old and special records in a collection, ignoring newer releases. I will now take the opportunity to name the one album which I’ve been listening to most since its still quite fresh release in 2009: “Wooden Arms” by Patrick Watson on Secret City Records.”

Thanks for contributing to our site, Alex. Hope we’ll see us at some parties near our hometown Frankfurt.
