Viva la Electronica


Artist Name
Ruede Hagelstein
Birth Place
Upon You


Ruede- a child of Berlin, almost that is. Actually born in the rural surroundings of the capital he decided to move inside- eight years ago. Nevertheless call him a city-dweller cause the city is where he feels home.

After civil service he left ´mean´ Brandenburg trying to find work as a ricochet in web-agencies, movie-shakes and magazine night-guides. From the proceeds of the new economy he soon is able to buy himself the first records. He is fascinated of the artwork mixing and with every night that is being danced through his drive to express himself through it grows. At the same time his passion for writing leads to the long coalition between him and the FLYER Magazine where he works as editor for many years making him even more intimate with the Berlin clubbing culture.

Inspired by the exzentrical clublife he and his friends decide to found a not commercial partyforum called Restrealitaet. “Restrealitaet” that up ´till today is playing an important role for the Sub-cultural scene in Berlin. The producing of electronic music is developing slowly. Ruede is not coming out of a musically gifted family- his father is loving Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones but reading notes for him is a foreign language. In his youth, making music is reduced to the notes in choir, the holes in his flute and the permanent out-of-tune guitar. It was his first computer that established him the view through the sequence-window which he still favours to look through upon the world of squares.

His prime- track is released on the Berlin Freizeitglauben – Label where he is almost showing off his poppy side which he articulates further on the following “New Fresh EP” on Freundinnen Records. One could find his actual disco-electro sound on international label compilations like Output Records and Kitsune while his sound started to spin more and more around techno and house with every extra after-hour. That explains why soon a far more minimal outline for the dance floors: The Dog vs. Dog on Lebensfreude Records could be heard. Dj´s like Sven Väth or Michael Mayer gave credits and with his growing attention Ruede decided to professionalize his passion and learned the fundamentals of audioengeneering at the SAE-Institute.Since 2006 Ruede is playing as resident Dj in the Watergate Club in Berlin as well as in the Harpune in Düsseldorf and- along with his friend Fraenzen, has set up a studio they can call their own. Since 2007 he belongs to Upon You Records on which he entered with the “Ghostdriver”
