Beat Box: The globetrotting German disc jock

German born deejay Lars Behrenroth is without by any doubt one of the most interesting figures within the house music game. The well-travelled music crazy German deejay and producer started his career in the mid-80s in the second largest city of Germany, Hamburg.

The highly acclaimed Behrenroth moved to Los Angeles, United States, with probably the motive to further share his musical taste, style and expand his already glittery career. In 1996 he co-hosted a radio show “House sound of Hamburg” on Hamburg based radio station which kicked off his impressive radio career.

Over the past 15 years Behrenroth enhanced his production skills to the point where he has accumulated a stunning discography over a variety of labels including Freerange, Sonar Kollektiv and Liebe. His fine producing skills allowed him the opportunity to remixing tracks from artists such as Liquideep, Black Coffee, Atjazz, Robert Owens, MJ Cole, Arnold Jarvis and The Rurals to name a few.

In 2012 Behrenroth’s two hour weekly show “Deeper Shades of House” marked its tenth year of existence proving its strength and might. The program started out on German radio station Jam Fm and sourced out to US nationwide satellite XM Radio. “Deeper Shades of House” can now be heard on over 30 stations across the globe and episodes can also be found online.

With the creation of “Deeper Shades of House” followed the founding of his record label Deeper Shades Recording which owns digital releases featuring many new and established acts in the deep house circle.
