Danilo Plessow’s been through a lot in the last few years. In our second film about artists on the road, we see where he’s at now, and hear about what it took to get there.
Two years ago Motor City Drum Ensemble was one of the busiest DJs on the circuit, with a string of popular EPs and a hit DJ-Kicks mix under his belt. But suddenly, the Stuttgart native disappeared from public view, and his once-packed release schedule all but dried up. These days he’s back on tour, which is where we find him in the latest edition of Between The Beats. RA shadowed Plessow from Boiler Room and Corsica Studios in London to a gig in Aix-en-Provence and an appearance at Lyon’s Nuits Sonores festival, with a stopover at his new home in Utrecht in between. In our time together, he told us about his temporary withdrawal from DJ life, what happened during his enforced break and what’s changed since then.
