// Rainer Weichhold
Rainer Weichhold started djing a long time ago in the late 80ies with an eclectic mixture of Funk, Hip Hop and Indie. First he was a true hater of everything techno and house, which only changed when he had his enlightenment listening to the sets of Alex From Tokyo during Rainer’s stay in France 1993. Alex showed him how house music can be soulful and made him discover the world of Mas- ters At Work and their NY sound.
1993 was also the year Rainer met and enjoyed Daft Punk for the first time, which obviously also helped him to get into that sound.
These days Rainer Weichhold plays two resident clubs and is touring all over Eu- rope with his brilliant mixture of house, techhouse and classics. And be aware, his sets are rocking and making every dancefloor explode. So many years of ex- perience can’t go wrong.
But that’s not everything as Rainer Weichhold is also the A&R of the exploding German GREAT STUFF Records (check www.greatstuff.eu), where he disco- vered artists like Gregor Tresher, Butch, Ramon Tapia, Lützenkirchen and many more. The label quickly gained massive respect and plays by the first league of the world’s biggest djs.
Since beginning of 2010 Rainer also manages the label Kling Klong records to- gether with his friend Martin Eyerer.
After his very successful debut single “Naked”, he released his first Great Stuff 12” “Infinite Template” (with remixes by Kissy Sell Out and Martin Eyerer) in Ja- nuary 2007, a colaboration with Italian producers and djs Dandi & Ugo which gained support by countless DJs for example Agoria, Mylo, Gregor Tresher, Oli- ver Koletzki, Etienne De Crécy.
Rainer’s own „Bamboo/Very Nice“ was released at the end of 2007 on Great Stuff featuring remixes by Format:B and Michoacan. With great support by Claude VonStroke, Karotte, Gregor Tresher, Paolo Mojo, Acquaviva, Prins Tho- mas, Shinedoe and Oliver Koletzki.
End of 2009 he finally came up with the highly acclaimed “Flashmobbing EP” on Great Stuff, followed up shortly by the singles “Ride The Horse” (Starlight), “Tango For Noemi” (GSR), “I Want You” (Kling Klong) and “Reis ft. Helge Schneider” (BluFin) in 2010
His remix for the classic “Push Push” from Rockers Hi-Fi still gets played even nearly 2 years after release.
