He’s graced the stage and and djed at the Baltic Soul Weekender (Germany), Contre-Temps Festival (France), Heineken Jazzaldia (Spain), Cultura Inquieta (Spain) and Imagina Funk (Spain). His DJ sets are an elegant, addictive and eclectic mix of energy covering the broad spectrum of the  underground dance music: soul, funk, jazz, rare grooves, disco, boogie, soulful house…and mostly from his vinyl collection.

As a producer he’s well know for his incendiary disco edits and reworks, done in an ‘old school’ way, respecting the artist’s original sound, but adding some re-touches to make them more enjoyable on the dance floor. His productions have caught the attention of big names in the disco and house scene, releasing his first 12″ called ‘Disco Edits Vol. 1‘ on Street Edits, label owned by the renowned Chicago  based DJ and producer Rahaan.

This episode i host Leipzig, Germany based producer and deejay Martin Hayes. Martin founded, along with fellas LuvLess, M.ono, Lars and Eva, imprint label called Rose Records. As an “Hymne à l’Amour” from slow mid – range house tempo, the label and its artists quickly gained recognition for pushing boundaries of disco & house to a global message where everything is made out of love and where “La Vie en rose” sits atop their arts and become a vision toward their music. Believing in slower music, like soul and disco tracks mixed with the house music, Martin plays a mixture of house & disco in all its aspects, forming a perfect balance on the dance floor. A tireless vinyl collector from soul, funk, hip hop, house music and disco, his releases reveals the true character of a bottomless skilled producer with records signed to Lazare Hoche Edits, Razor-N-Tape Reserve, Editorial, Pantha Rhei as of course his home base Rose Records.
