Indie rock, punk, metal, blues, hard rock, ska, rock and roll, psychedelic rock, burlesque – but also techno, drum and bass, hip-hop, dubstep, trap, soul – and country, bluegrass, pop and the occasional cheesy song. Welcome to Radio Werkhaus. For the 10th anniversary of Nowhere, here is a little tribute to the handful of heroes (and heroins) who make the event happen every year by building it from dust, and tearing it down to dust, leaving no trace – the mighty Werkhaus! 

Warning, ravers! This is not a dancefloor mix, it’s more a rock radio show mainly designed for desert rockers, pirates and punks, with the occasional hippy. A good soundtrack for a Werkhaus sound, I would say. What do you think?

The trick of this “radio mix” is that I got inspired by some gimmick recently done by Laurent Garnier as radio DJ hats for his Soundcloud podcast “It is what it is“. Mr. Garner once played with a single concept – control – to tie very different tracks by their track name or band name in a very open playlist. So I decided to follow his example creating a radio playlist where all the songs have the word “Nowhere” in it. Only two songs escaped the “Nowhere in the track title” rule – one because the name of the band is Nowhere, while the other, the real intruder in this radio show, is Caro Emerald’s Stuck – a total favorite at Werkhaus and Nowhere. Check out the playlist below, and scroll it to find some surprising tunes in the stream with known and not-so-known artists. Enjoy the dust and the radio playlist!
