When a just twenty-year-old is able to stir up an entire city, that’s what we call a shooting star. In 2010, he was initially devoted to Drum ‘n’ Bass but he became noticeably more drawn to House and Techno. What remained and even became more intense was the enjoyment of playing records. By mid-year, the native of Heidelberg was playing records with nothing other than the sound of this genre, and within a very short period of time he was playing at major events and at one location after another in Heidelberg and surrounding areas right up to Frankfurt. Unter Freunden and Punkt vor Strich, halle_02 and halle_03, Ziegler’s, Deep, Club London Underground and countless open airs are just a few of the stations that are indicative of his omnipresence. The year 2012 marks the most important step to date: Jan Golly went mono meaning that he joined the party line up and booking roster. The contact came about once again through friends: Jan is in with the “young wild ones” in Heidelberg, Jan knows Felix Neumann, Jan knows Bunte Bummler, Jan goes to mono parties. The rest is history.
Whenever the young artist approaches the decks, the crowd is usually on its head very quickly. Jan Golly resists being cubbyholed into a particular style and instead plays records he likes with influences from the harder side of Techno, House with rich Soul tones, Garage, Drum ‘n’ Bass and vibrant sounds and blends them to a perfect beat when he structures his sets. Variety is the name of the game and he is only satisfied when the audience is going full tilt and the last behind is on the dance floor.
At almost exactly the same time as his mono debut in August 2012, Jan released his first own production “muck wild” with lifetime records, a collaboration with the old hand from Heidelberg, Yana Heinstein. And, if the new mono youngster maintains his previous pace, we will likely see more of him soon.
