“A Dream In A Dream” is the debut LP by DJ Piper, also known as Felix Wagner of techno superstar duo FJAAK.

One might be surprised about this all hip-hop instrumental album looking at Felix’ all dance music focussed

musical resumé. Nevertheless, he has been crafting rap beats ever since he started producing as a teen, but had

his childhood friends freestyle over the tracks solely. It took until 2020 when he teamed up with Lukas and

Jonathan Nixdorff of Kommerz Records to release his first solo track “Iluminay”, which was part of “Kommerz

Season 1: Anti-Virus” compilation and shared by B-Real of Cypress Hill right away.

Now, 2022, marks the right moment to share his debut album, a waltzing ode to hip-hop’s golden era. The Berlin-

Spandau original merges the legacies of both Pete Rock and Dr. Dre, while funky breakbeats meet laid back

SoCal “Chronic” vibes. 12 instrumental tracks and 2 skits strong, his album tells the story of a young man, who

lives up to his wildest teenage dreams. Most of the track ideas came up while being on tour with FJAAK. Between

international transit areas, making inspirational new friends and bizarre encounters all over the world, beat making

became DJ Piper’s safe space to process all the positive madness around him. As a result, “A Dream In A

Dream” breathes that raw, untamable creative energy around Felix’ extraordinary day-to-day life, while being

heavily influenced by the sound of his childhood, 90s and 2000s rap.

To visualize “A Dream In A Dream” DJ Piper and Kommerz Records joined forces with Raman Djafari, a

childhood friend of the artist, who illustrated music videos for Dua Lipa and Elton John (no joke!) and worked for

New Release Information Adult Swim. Raman’s supernaturalistic aesthetics bring life to DJ Piper’s somewhat psychedelic, somewhat

nostalgic fantasy, locating the album in an otherworldly version of Spandau, hometown to both of the artists.

As one half of FJAAK Felix became an icon of Berlin techno conquering major festival stages and mainstream

audiences while heavily representing underground D.I.Y. mentality up to this very day. As an initiator of

Spandau20 label and collective, Felix pushes his creative family and day 1’s regardless of commercial potentials.

The same ethos and love for culture fuels the DJ Piper project. No matter if it’s FJAAK or DJ Piper, techno or hiphop…

Integrity is key!
