Wankelmut is a pretty unique alias, where did it come from?

Wankelmut

It’s like black & white or up & down. It shows opposite directions that I follow in my life. I love heavy rock music but also Techno. I live my life inbetween those opposite directions.

Your Banana Split EP is about to drop on Hive Audio, tell us how the collaboration and EP came to be?

Wankelmut

We are in contact since the early days of me making music. We always stayed in contact and his productions never leave my sets and playlists. Out of this grew the idea to cooperate.

You saw insane success with My Head Is A Jungle, did you think it would do so well?

Wankelmut

It was the follow up to my ‘One day’ Remix which went No.1 in eight countries and sold 1.6 Million copies. With these circumstances it was not easy for ‘My Head Is A Jungle’ but over the months it became a solid follow up single and made it to #5 in the UK single charts remixed by MK.
