The Katzensprung Festival outside of Cologne / Germany is a brand new festival (15th till 17th of July) that lays a strong focus on an eclectic music selection (Electronic Music, Dub & Reggae, Live Music, Freestyle) as well as nature and cultural sustainability.
Dogu will be there this weekend representing Ancient Astronauts, Switchstance Recordings and his monthly Afrobeat & Reggae night Family Affairs Cologne. Here is an exclusive dj mix that he recorded for the festival:
It´s summer time, at least on the calendar. June was so rainy in Germany that it felt more like autumn than summer. But we hope and pray that the sunshine is blessing Germany soon, because from the 15th till 17th of July there will be the very first episode of the Katzensprung Festival in Germany. The festival is about 1 hour away from Cologne and it will present a very nice mixture of electronic music, Dub, Freestyle sounds and live music. Dogu will be there representing the sound of Ancient Astronauts and his label Switchstance Recordings. In addition he´s gonna represent his monthly Afrobeat night Family Affairs Cologne, so he has his new houseband AGWAAN with him playing there first ever festival gig.
To honour the courage of trying a new festival that comes up with an eclectic mix of music Dogu recorded an exclusive DJ mix for the Katzensprung Festival:

Following the release of our album “Themes From Tomorrowland” comes the INSTRUMENTAL version of this heavy banger. We noticed that our most listened songs were instrumentals and our fans and followers love it that way. And we love it too. So here is the full “Themes From Tomorrowland” album in pure instrumental form.
The album is a digital release and you can find it in every download store or streaming service worldwide!
Good day lovely people,
we know a lot of you guys liked our Reggae and Hip Hop mashups in the past, be it those under our moniker The Beatstalkers or the ones we addd to our Soundcloud page. Those who really dig our music know that we just love older Rockers Reggae and Dub and the booming Hip Hop, known as Boom Bap Hip Hop from the 90´s.
So we came to the conclusion to share some of our secret weapons with you for FREE.

our new album THEMES FROM TOMORROWLAND will be out on the 30th of October, but before we´re gonna hit you with some heavy Reggae dubs. We remixed our song ALL OF THE THINGS YOU feat. TIPPA IRIE and gave it some extra funked up dubby twist, some deep bassy Dancehall groove and some flying breaks Jungle style. And on top an extra melodica loaded Dub version.
You can listen and buy it here:
