Dance Here Now Presents Wankelmut!

December 9, 2014

On Thursday 11th Dance.Here.Now.  presents the highly original, and very distinctive sound of Wankelmut. Sometimes things unfold fast, very fast. In autumn 2011 Jacob Dilßner, aka Wankelmut, was a young 24-year old philosophy and political science student from Berlin who DJ’d on the side. Then his remix of ‘Reckoning Song/One Day’ blew up, and sold over a million downloads on route to becoming one of the biggest house anthems of 2012. Two years on and his latest single, ‘My Head Is A Jungle’ (supporting a very large MK remix), recently hit the top 5 of the UK pop charts, and has paved the way for him to remixes cuts on Lenny Kravitz, the Writers Block, the Hozier and Royksopp. In case you were wonder what the story was behind the: “Wankelmut is my favorite word in the German language,” he reveals. “It’s the classic ‘two sides to every story’ phrase.” Fairly apt from his current point of view.
