Study: Homosexuality Mystery Solved
Scientists may have finally solved the puzzle of what makes a person gay. Doctor Newbeard and her team of experts created a mathematical model that explains how „queerness“ originates from a certain, newly discovered Chromosome Type: HOMOSOM XY. Subsequent experiments based on rhythmic high-tempo consistency schemes showed that carriers of such chromosome respond highly euphoric when exposed to certain sub-genres of electronic dance music, falling into a trance like state.
In order to find out more about this curious chromosome, Doctor Newbeard will once again perform a newly designed field experiment. With the help of sophisticated Technology the test subjects (ravers) will be acoustically stimulated with a mix of sub-genres like Euro Disco, Acid House and Detroit Techno.
Participants of this field study are highly advised to drink enough water during the experiment, to take care of fellow ravers and prepare for highly physical sensations… cause shit is about to go down
“Gaydies and Femtlemen. Thank you for choosing HOMOSOM XY for your next irrational escalation.
We live in an era of unprecedented disruption (mega scary). As a leading Schlampion of the industry (4.1 stars on Google), HOMOSOM XY recognizes your existential Angst and provides you with high quality rhythmic services, guaranteeing you effective escapism and tingling sensations in your belly button.”

Fasten your seatbelts, here comes Vivi Wahnsinn - the name says it all:
Between juicy booty Tech House and autonomous center badass-boss-b*tch demolition - Get ready to (t)werk!
Lets get down to the flooor!
Vivi Wahnsinn was dragged to the dancefloor unintentionally but found herself disappointed as none of the performing artists quite matched her taste at full scale. So without thinking twice, she threw herself into the art of djing to develop her very own style and to please fellow dancers.
By creating her distinct approach to house music, she was soon booked to various events at Odonien in her hometown Cologne, Nachtigall or Kit Kat in Berlin, just to name a few.
Her style is best described as dirty, bouncy Tech House laced with catchy vocal edits. Playing a wide range from minimalistic house to absolute G House bangers, she is always able to hold the energy on a very high level in a little bit trashy, little bit nasty way. Same as lemons being sour-sweet but you can’t get enough of it.
If you cannot find her behind the decks on her own, she is probably heating things up as a part of @latzundleder.
Driving, hard beats interwoven with trancy melodies - her tracks are catchy as well as unconventional.
In Xynia’s DJ sets she creates a pulsating union of early Hardstyle classics and modern productions. An invitation to forget yourself in the moment, to follow the stomp of your feet. Without compromise, she takes dancers on a journey.
