Smile For A While welcome proud Frankfurter and 'House Is Ok' label head Janis into their ranks for this dope four tracker of lush and lively summertime house. Working with a vintage set up of Moogs, Rolands and a Prophet 600, Janis delivers three original tracks of melodic majesty and undiluted yearning, accompanied perfectly by a rework by Johannes Albert. Whatever the set time, this four tracker has something for you!
This time our Podcast comes out of Berlin, from the Tieffrequent labelhead Siggatunez.
Janis is hell of a Frankfurter. Born and raised that is. His bold imprint
"House is OK", being run with two friends was started 1 year before "smile for a while", so there was surely some kind of inspiration coming from that end.
The S4AW guys kind of adopted the sound maniac and gave him a cozy little music studio together with all the other smiling madmen. There he sweated blood & tears onto his Prophet 600, the Moogs, the Rolands and all the other vintage music boxes. The outcome is an amazing wall of House sound, crazy in the details, epic in dancefloor quality.

He's 19 years old and has founded the collective called "Friends of the family." He's DJing some classic House and he's about to start his own Music productions - keep an eye on him, guys & gals!
