Time: 10:00 PM Friday
Venue: Jenja, Seminyak
This Friday, Jenja's Weekenders return with an artist who can only be described as a modern phenomenon. Whether you knew the artist or background of the music or not, there's a very high chance you've been shuffling your feet to the sounds of Wankelmut for a few years now...
DJ Jacob Dilßner, aka Wankelmut, rose to fame when his unofficial remix of Asaf Avidan & the Mojos' "Reckoning Song" went viral after being posted on his Soundcloud page. Born and raised in Berlin, Dilßner started DJing while studying at University and after dabbling in music production, released his remix in 2011.
The single was released in 2012 to acclaim throughout Europe, reaching the top of the charts in Austria, Italy, Germany, Hungry, Belgium, and Poland. Putting his studying on hold to focus on his music career, Dilßner headed out on a European tour to support the release. A year later his second single, "My Head Is a Jungle", appeared and managed to reach both the Italian and UK Top Tens. We can be pretty sure that we will hear a lot more of the young producer in the years to come.
