podcast #07 mixed by Jennifer Kaps

Jennifer Kaps was born in Offenbach am Main and grew up in a rural idyll. Today she lives in the Westerwald between Frankfurt and Cologne. Already as a teenager she listened to electronic music on cassettes in her ghetto blaster and was impressed by the mixing skills of hip hoppers. After a few years her interest in electronic music rekindled and Jenny found her way into the Goa/Psy scene, where she amused herself with CDs. Around the same time, two turntables and a mixer entered her life and so the Westerwälderin taught herself the dexterity of the record player. In 2009, the time had come and she went to the first techno parties with her learned know-how and the appropriate vinyls. This musical career already shows that Jenny cannot be musically pinned down. Although she is clearly dedicated to electronic music today, her repertoire is wide-ranging. She convinces not only with her friendly manner, but also with her sound. From relaxed house and groovy tech house to driving techno, she masters the different genres of electronic music without being arbitrary. Today she is mainly equipped with various MIDI controllers or timecode vinyls in addition to vinyls. This also finds supra-regional appeal. Because the aspiring artist is now booked nationwide. She was allowed to prove her skills at well-known events. In clubs like the legendary Berlin Tresor, the Cologne Kunstpark, Gleis 9 in Bremen, the BKI on Hamburg’s Reeperbahn or festivals like the Electro Magnetic in Völklinger Hütte near Saarbrücken or the “Back to the roots” in the Berlin M.I.K.Z. and many more. So the journey goes across the federal republic. Always with her, a fat portion of “Gude Laune” and great tracks to send her audience on a little journey. It is not to be feared that she will run out of breath soon, because the nature lover prefers to recharge her empty batteries out in nature – whether fishing or on a forest excursion with her dog – the perfect balance to the long, loud and smoky party nights in droning techno clubs. We can be curious. The little lady is always ready for new deeds.
