Mike Ungewitter

Now we get funky with the room by Mike Ungewitter a.k.a. Heavy User from wonderful Munich, Germany. Digging vinyl since 1988, Mike got a really impressive collection of Funk and old school Hip Hop records in his room. Time to get to know him a little closer.

Hello Mike, glad you found us on the web and sent some really cool pictures of your room. Tell us more about yourself:“I started digging vinyl in 1983. Got me 2 Technics in 1988 and collected Funk and Hip Hop. Played first time 1988 in a GI Club called Cadillac in Munich. After that I played at many events around Munich area and at art exhibitions for several years also in. In 1998 I had a Radioshow on Evosonic Radio europewide over Satelite till the station was closed due financial reasons. After the year 2000 the DJ scene got boring to me cause all that digital & laptop DJ´s came out, so i decide to go back to my Room and have a Break for a while. Nowadays I concentrate on diggin vinyl records again and play sometimes in small bars or for my friends.”

    Hi Mike, I’m a DJ and artist in Munich for a couple of days this week and would really appreciate any guidance on record digging — mainly for 60s and 70s German and European music –and bars or clubs that play old and/or independent hip hop. I have very little time left in Munich and want to get a taste of the scene. Dope room! Thanks for sharing!
