Es ist heiß.

Okay. Es ist heiß. Zu heiß zum Nachdenken. Oder gar heiße Scheiben durchwühlen und schwere Plattentaschen schleppen.

DJ Vollkasko hat das aber auf seine charmante Art und Weise gelöst, und euch mit Pleiten, Pech und Sendelöchern sowie feinster Musik zwei zauberhafte Sommerabendstunden bereitet.
Alright. It's hot. Too hot for thinking. Or for digging through hot cuts and lugging heavy DJ bags around.

But our man DJ Vollkasko came through in his very own charming way, and brought you two hours of delightful music for a Summer evening, as well as some of the finest handcrafted dead air in the world.
