PhilHarmonic, Ingolstadt, GERMANY Jackin, House, Electro Swing. Philipp Greiner aka PhilHarmonic was born in Germany in 1991. He got his first impressions of electronic music at the age of 16 with a lot of Mashup stuff like Funkanomics, A Skillz or Loo & Placido. His hometown Ingolstadt isn’t really big but has a pretty good electro and club culture for a small town. After the first year in the clubs, he bought his first turntables at the age of 17. Time went through, turntables got replaced of a controller and electronic music got bigger in his life. Artists like Monkey Safari, Aka Aka, Dirty Doering, Enzo Siffredi, Pleasurekraft and Parov Stelar kept the often monotone world of electronic music in his mind. The non-profit organisation “Vitalkeller” started to organise some bad ass events in local clubs and here he got the chance to play for an audience. As a result of this time he founded the “Vogelfrei” Dj&Vj-Crew with four of his friends, they organised more partys in the clubs of Ingolstadt and got some gigs in Innsbruck. Right now his music is a mix of Techhouse, E-Swing & Jackin House.
What is Electro Swing for you ?
Important is that the music has a positive feeling. Electro in the clubs often seem very dark, deep and serious. But isn’t it better to smile while you are dancing? So in general you can say: Electronic music which is not only made in the computer but also with vocals, trumpets, harmonica, Sax, guitar, piano, harp, flute, didgeridoo or whatever is the music you will find in his sets. Harmonic music, for harmonic people.
