DJ 125ER / Housemasters Resident & Tech Adviser
DJ 125er (aka Hoop-c) is an Austrian DJ and Producer. His focus in house music are the deep, soulful, funky and techy vibes. Liquid and rollin Drum & Bass is also a favourite genre to mix and the German language hip hop / rap music from Austria and Germany, was the introduction to the electronic produced music, back in the ealy 1990s. Starting to sit in front of a turntable as a 4yr old child, this spinning black vinyl always has its own magic to him.
Coming from the music cassette and vinyl age, the first two records he owned was of course some rock and punk rock. Guns n Roses “Appetite For Destruction” 1987 and Die Toten Hosen “Ein kleines bisschen Horrorschau” 1988. Texta “gediegen” was the first Austrian Hip Hop Vinyl that dj 125er bought in 1997 and also the first pair of 1210s.
At the age of 16 he started to dj rock n metal at several private and public parties with the 2 cd player and a lil mixer setup. A few years later, the big move to house music was there by accident at a private party. Since this day 125er started a small but good vinyl collection from funky to soulful and a bit deep from 1998 to 2000. This was also the time of his first dj residency in a nice underground club in viennas 1st district.
Changing his dj name like others changing their cars, its finally Hoop-c for production and dj 125er for djing. In 2011 started Hoop-c to create his own productions with a knowledge about this whole thing like zero. After countless hours he has made bout 35 tracks in 2-3 yrs of unique sounding productions. Having a break from this at the moment, he plans to come back with new and a way better tracks in 2018.
