About Orbeat

Swiss Turntablist Orbeat is known as the man behind the desk for Saimon Disko. Orbeat was born 1988 in Biel/Bienne and grew up while this city  was a sort of of Hip Hop-Mekka in Switzerland - so it was the right place to fall in love with Hip Hop and Turntablism.

 

Between 2009 and 2016 he studied at the University of Bern where he met Static Fanatic in 2013 and became part of The Wake Up. Together with their professor Reisigl, Static Fanatic and Orbeat planned and coordinated a seminar about Hip Hop at the University of Bern. Besides he digged in the crates and  built a little record collection with sounds from Hip Hop, Funk, Soul, Rock over Soundtracks.

 

In early 2014 Saimon Disko was guest at many the Wake Up gigs. After the break up of the Wake Up Saimon Disko, Orbeat and Sanuk still worked together to push each other and make great live shows.

Orbeat contributed scratches for artists like Larry Choppins, Guido S., Darrell, Miss C-Line, TRUWVE, Saimon Disko, Kaes of RAPAMOLE , Hävänäis, Franklyn or Tilt of Chaostruppe.

 

His music is a bricolage of cut-and-paste Hip Hop/Trip Hop mixed with rhythmic scratches and juggles - sometimes nearly dreamy. He loves digging deep the crates; but also movies, series or tv-talks are the substrate where he gets samples.

 

In 2019 he released the song Chatzägoud with Darrell and Franklyn, which was in many swissrap playlists during the summer months. In 2020 he collaborated with Larry Choppins: They released the album infra.red.

 

Orbeat is also part of: Team Reaktor, Chaos-Soundsystem, Hävänäis, Injahpendent.
