Boris Werner has been in the game since the late nineties. He is known for his long sets. His personality, great taste in music and extraordinary mixing skills behind the decks have taken him around the world as well. He loves nothing better than bringing his indestructible grooves to dance floors all over the globe. Enough reasons for us to ask him for the Paradigm set of the month February!
Boris, a few days ago you came back from a little vacation. How did the flyboarding go? Made some stunning 360’s?
Haha, actually I did one. Don't ask me how though!
Speaking of traveling, you have had gigs in all kinds of scene’s, clubs and cultures all over the globe and in about a week you’re playing in Groningen. That’s a big difference. How do you feel about this?
It’s the difference that keeps it interesting I guess. But whether I’m playing in Rome, Paris or Groningen, it all comes down to the same principle: Throwing down a party with the people on the dance floor that you interact with on hopefully a good soundsystem.
You've played at Pand48 in Groningen last year. What is your recollection of that night and the Groningen scene?
That night went down pretty well, I’m always having fun in Groningen. I also remember some good nights at the Simplon but that feels like ages ago! And I can’t wait to eat some Raspatat!
As mentioned before, you are in the game already for a long time and life is always coming with ups and downs. How do you look back at your career? Did anything limit you as a dj or producer?
I can say I’m pretty proud of myself with what I achieved over the years, but at this point I can only look forward to the things to come. Also I will never be too old to learn more as a dj as well as pushing my production skills. I didn’t had a studio for a while but luckily I found a new home today. I will be sharing a studio with Maxi Mill next to our boys Tom Trago and San Proper. Can’t wait to rock the casbah again in the studio!
Finally, let’s talk a little about Saturday. We are very looking forward to it because all night’ers are one of your specialism. What can we expect this Saturday and how do you prepare for such nights?
You can expect some bootyshaking, soulshaking, undestructible Werner groove flava in ya ear!
You have made a special set for us. Can you tell us anything about it?
I think it will be a good reflection of how the night will go down on Saturday, hopefully with some more people around me though, haha!
