Kai Stechert

Auf Kai freuen wir uns ganz besonders, denn wie kein anderer begleitet er das elektronische Feiern in Bonn und Umgebung seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten. Gemeinsam rockten wir Falle und Rheingarten und so ziemlich alle guten Partys, die Rang und Namen hatten. Hier eine etwas ältere Vita:

Kai Stechert first came into contact with electronic music at a New Years Eve Party 1993. One and a half years later, during his stay in New York he started buying his own records.

His first appearance in the Bonn (Germany) club scene followed in 1996, when he sought out various club orientated bars like „Cafe Blau“ or „House Cafe and had his first gigs there. The same year in May Kai, who from the beginning had felt himself mainly drawn to Deep House music, became resident in “Die Falle”, Bonn (Germany), where he continued playing regularly until autumn ’98.

During the summer of 98, together with Maurizio Schmitz (Mauromusica, Hamburg) he hosted his own party called “The Sunday Service” in the Rheingarten, Bonn. Every Sunday he entertained the crowds with chilled House music on the terrace of the Rheingarten, in combination with a range of barbecued food on offer. In spite of the often unsuitable weather conditions, he succeeded to enthuse a regular crowd of party people for the event therefore moving the party to the Indoor location “Zeppelin” in the winter season.

Since March 99 Kai has been working in the Cologne based record store „Music Man“, simultaneously being the specialist for Deep House. He has long since made himself a name in the Cologne/Bonn region for his knowledge on the subject and plays a large part in Bonn house/club scene.

Next to his residency at the „Mauromusica“ events, where he has the opportunity to display his other music passion, the “Electro” style, he is often booked as Guest DJ at various parties. He has played at events such as the “Livin’Room“Club, „Paparazzi/Pure Club“, „Taboo Party” and the Aftershowparty of a Moloko concert in the Kunstmuseum Bonn.
On top of all that he can boast of a stately number of exterior bookings. From the „Shockwaves“-Party in H90 club, to „Muschi Club“, „Tiefenrausch“, „Sensor“, „Flora“ and „Tanzschule, all Cologne based clubs, to the Sputnik Turntabledays Festivals 2002 & 2003 in Leipzig und Halle (Germany) Kai has set the tone at many clubs.

Further mentionable are his regular Guest DJ appearances in Hamburg for example at „Purgatory“, „ROI Studios“, or „Gum Club“.
Since November 2004 Kai is one of the resident dj´s at the Groovedelicious-deep parties.

Kai Stechert is quite a selective DJ, concentrating on the musical effect of a track and known for his fundamental knowledge of Deep House and Electro House. No record is pulled out of his record case at random, let alone bought without being 100% Kai’s style. On the other hand he is a DJ who keeps an eye on the dancefloor and subtly guides the happenings and moods….
