Since his debut album “Wolfram”, released back in 2011 on Permanent Vacation, he has collaborated with Haddaway, Hercules & Love Affair, Legowelt, and Holy Ghost!

To set the right mood, Wolfram has put together an exclusive mixtape ahead of his DJ set. As he says: “It’s a weird mix. I didn’t wanna do a normal Italo one, so its more like 40-minutes of selecting whatever”. Blast it above, and join us at at Uberdooze tonight!
