Diego Krause is an artist and label owner who was born in Berlin’s eastern districts during the high times of early synthesizer music as created by the likes of Kraftwerk and Jean Michel Jarre. Growing up in the nineties, he witnessed, first-hand, the golden era of hip-hop and spent his formative years as a producer making hip-hop beats before making the transition to house music.
Diego is co-owner of the Beste Modus imprint, with his partners Cinthie, Stevn.aint.leavn and Ed Herbst and he runs with cinthie also, Unison Wax, as an outlet for his own productions. He recently released a killer EP with Apollonia, entitled ‘Right About Now’, and has released original material and remixes on Adult Only, Organic Music and Rough Recordings.
Diego’s sound is influenced by funk and soul, garage, deep house and everything in-between that is both underground and raw. He has taken his sounds all over Europe and beyond – playing at clubs like Watergate and About Blank in his hometown Berlin along with appearances in Lyon, Strasbourg, Paris, Zurich and more… His DJ-sets are powered by driving basslines with a raw nineties texture and techy flourishes, while always retaining a groovy, jacking vibe.
