As a teenager DJ Tapesh flew into the U.K. and the U.K. acid-house, funk, and breakdance scene and has never looked back since. Now based in Düsseldorf, Germany Tapesh blends his funky grooves and infuses it with his own sense of style, which he showed on his past two EP Releases. Tapesh collaborated with Maxilijan for his One Night EP, released this last Christmas Day, where bouncing beats make tapping your feet irresistible. You can find Tapesh at Le Blogg in Lyon, France tomorrow Feburary 9th, and at the Angelovclub in Moscow on the 15th of this month.
