Sven Weisemann spins on January 27 at Shine in Boulder

Visitors to Sven Weisemann's website or Soundcloud page will notice one thing immediately: This DJ/producer dabbles in more than just electronic music. He's also a self-taught pianist, percussionist and guitar player who composes jazz tracks along with his beloved house music. Perhaps most astonishing, Weisemann, who's been mixing records since 1997, is a mere 26 years old. Based in Berlin, he draws heavily from Detroit and Chicago house influences, but his sets are all his own. He takes his time winding up the action, teasing the dance floor with gorgeous vocals and sweeping melodies before dropping in the beat. But the wait is well worth it: Weisemann's sets are funky, soulful and perfect for dancing the night away. Catch him at Shine in Boulder on Friday, January 27, with Attentat, Pandemix and John Templeton, courtesy of Communikey and Inciting.
