5FAVs with Philipp Lichtblau

Philipp Lichtblau is one of Austria’s most ascending talents, who is making waves on international ground. Born and raised in the capital city Vienna, he has always been faced with music. Influenced by daily surroundings and a strong affection for the beauty of mood, he attempts to transfer this perception into his productions. With continuous support from top-notch artists, Philipp proves he is truly part of the new generation of musicians.


DAVE BRUBECK - TAKE FIVE

"I'm into Jazz since I can remember. I was living with my parents and grandparents, all together in one big house. My grandparents listened to their fav. jazz tunes on vinyl at home. Nowadays I still regularly listen to that kind of music, but mostly in bit more modern way. Gregory Porter is probably one of the guys which influenced me a lot."

CURTIS MAYFIELD - MOVE ON UP

"Childhood is probably the keyword here. I grew up with my uncle's music which was basicly soul, funk, rnb and everything in between. Earth, Wind & Fire, Luther Vandross, Berry White, Bobby Womack, George Benson or Kool & The Gang are names which spring to mind when I think about that time. And I still love all those tunes."

SOULS OF MISCHIEF - 93 'TIL INFINITY

"When this track starts, I instantly get really sweet flashbacks. At this time I wasn't into electronic music quite yet. We were a crew of skateboarding guys travelling around Austria and Europe. This tune reminds me of a time, were everything was carefree - just friends, skateboarding, music and havin' a good time!"

CESAR MERVEILLE FEAT. GUTI - MAAYANCHOLY

"I'm still in love with this tune. I love all those organic sounds which are beautifully arranged - a masterpiece! This track inspired me for my very first production. From then on, I started making records in my bedroom. This was definitely a game changer!"
SVEN VÄTH - THE SOUND OF THE 5TH SEASON
It's really hard to pick one tune which got me involved in this whole techno thing, but it was definitely the sound around the early 2000's. I went to my first raves and was totally fascinated. From then on I was totally caught up in techno and it didn't let me go until this day. After some years of ravin', Sven Väth's "the sound of the fifth season" was my entrance into djing. I'm not totally sure why, but I started spinnin' records because of that compilation.
