PestoMix 014 by Martin Broszeit "Music For Lovers"

PestoCast150x150
Looking out the window, it's obvious that autumn is all over Cologne: a sky in just that one shade of grey (ok, that can happen any season here), yellow and red leaves falling from the tree in the backyard and the cat sleeping on top of the heater. It's the season for hooded sweaters, thick socks and german cuisine - of which the latter is impossible to enjoy during summer as good and solid it usually is. It's time to get cozy and we would not be Pesto Music if we did not serve you the proper soundtrack. Disclaimer: PestoMix 014 will also work for you if you're located on the southern hemisphere. I just could not come up with a better introduction;)

PestoMix 014 comes from Hamburg's Martin Broszeit (link is in german language) and is named "Music For Lovers" which is a more than suitable description for the atmosphere created. Martin's name may not ring a bell since he's not your favourite overhyped producer of the moment rather than a long player in Germany's music business. Born in 1972, Martin found his way behind the wheels of steel at the age of 17, mainly focused on HipHop and HipHouse back then. Going under the name of DJ Phoenix, he soon became a regular guest in all of Hamburg's top venues and events: Palladium, Kontor, Phonodrome, Juice Club and the Nature One festival to name but a few.
Martin, together with production mate Chopstick, formed "Smart System" in 2001 and one of their tunes was placed on Tiesto's "Nyana" compilation, two more tunes were signed by Germany's House veteran Oliver Moldan. The buzz made bigger labels become aware of the duo and eventually, one of Smart System's remixes made it on top of the official german Dance Charts.

During the same time, Martin Broszeit was working as a plugger for Kontor and later on Universal Music, promoting the who-is-who in music biz: Rolling Stones, Sophie Ellis Baxtor, Spiller, Blank & Jones and too many more to mention. No wonder why Martin, still the nice and down-to-earth guy he is to date, played alongside the frequent flyers of electronic music.

Even though Martin admits to having played a support gig for Scooter (hey, we all need to pay our rents!), his heart is with his wife, his glamourous daughter and the spirit of Deep House.
