At the age of four Dirk Rumpff was sitting in front of his grandmother’s portable record player listening to her collection of 45s. Starting at age 12 he was playing tapes at summer camp and school parties. At 18 he was fully addicted to buying records. His inherent passion for music continues even almost 20 years later.
Today the Berlin based physician, CDR music project organizer and OFFtrack radio host jams out to past and present productions of artists he has been a long time fan of, and bands he just recently discovered. In FvF mixtape #59, Dirk shares current favorites including Mark Pritchard, Tunng, Mount Kimbie and Redshape; all of which reflect his mindset.
The playlist is fueled by strong arrangements, instrumentals and vocals, while featuring what Dirk calls some challenging moments, otherwise known as not just easy listening. But the doctor’s orders are: stay tuned to the end and you might be rewarded.
