TORSTEN MATUSCHEK (Hamburg, GER)
 
Nació y creció en 1967, en los desolados suburbios de Wolfsburg, la “ciudad del
motor” de Alemania. En esta ciudad regentó un bar durante varios años, hasta que en
1996 se mudó a Hamburgo, atraído por el hecho de que fuera una ciudad portuaria y
por su distrito “nunca durmiente” de St. Pauli. Comenzó su andadura como DJ incluso
antes de trasladarse a Hamburgo, pero fue a partir de entonces cuando comenzó a
centrarse en la música negra en general, atrayéndole en particular aquellos sonidos
de los 50s y 60s, algo de Popcorn también… Con el paso de los años, Matu se ha
convertido en una auténtica referencia en el tempestuoso mar de la vida nocturna en
St. Pauli. Entre otras actividades, junto con unos amigos es el promotor de un club
mensual de R&B/Soul, llamado “For Dancers Only”. Como Matu ha trabajado la mayor
parte de su vida en locales nocturnos, ciertamente el verdadero hábitat del R&B, se
le puede describir no únicamente
como un amante sino como un auténtico ser viviente de este estilo de música!

RAPHI “SCORCHER” (Toulouse, FR)
 
Adicto a la música negra de los 60 y 70, es miembro de Lava Records y fundó el
«Canigó Soul Casino». Ha organizado el «Perpignan Soul Weekender» en 2007 y 2008 y
también ha coorganizado algunos scooter rallies en Perpignan desde 2003 hasta 2007.
Diseñador gráfico, a menudo hace diseños con reminiscencias 60s y 70s para
conciertos, bandas ska/reggae/soul y para otra gente con interés por lo vintage.
Coleccionista de singles Reggae y Soul, ha estado poniendo sus discos en distintos
clubes en Francia, Bélgica, el norte de Inglaterra, Suiza, Alemania y Catalunya.
Asimismo, ha ejercido como DJ en warm ups en algunos conciertos de reggae/ska como

ROCK-OLA JORDI (Barcelona):
 
Es, sin lugar a dudas, el DJ español más internacional en la escena Rock’n’Roll,
puesto que ha paseado sus discos por los mejores festivales y fiestas en Inglaterra
(“Teddy Boy Weekender” en Great Yarmouth, “Wildest Cats In Town” en Lowestoft,
“Ready Teddy Go” en Cleethorpes), Alemania (“Sunbeam Rock’n’Roll Club” en Frankfurt,
“Panhandle Rebs Club” en Düsseldorf, “Walldorf Rock’n’Roll Weekender”, “Foggy
Mountain Rockers” en Niederkassel, “2nd International Rockabilly Meeting” en
Oberhausen), Francia, Finlandia (“Crown Fire Rock’n’Roll Festival”)…

A la temprana edad de 10 u 11 años quedó atrapado por los sonidos de Bill Haley y
Elvis Presley; sin duda, estaba predestinado a encaminar sus pasos hacia el
Rock’n’Roll lifestyle. Ya a los 17 años tuvo su primera oportunidad de plantarse
tras unos platos, en el Rockin’ Bar “Swing”, de Huesca. Desde entonces, ha estado al
timón de diversos clubes en su Barcelona natal (“Magic R’n’R Club”, el mítico club
teddy boy “Crepes & Drapes Appreciation Society”…) y ha sido DJ invitado en
innumerables fiestas y festivales de la escena Rockabilly estatal (“Fifties Teds
Rock’n’Roll Club”, “Screamin’ Festival”, “High Rockabilly”, “Rockin’ Race Jamboree”,
“Hot Rock Festival”…).
 
Aparte de su prolífica actividad como DJ, Jordi ha sido el editor del Ted Magazine
“Boogie Bop Dame”, y uno de los promotores del “Rock’n’Roll Heaven Festival”.

TORSTEN MATUSCHEK (Hamburg, GER)
 
Born in 1967 and grown up in the dreary suburbs of Germany’s ‘Motor City’ Wolfsburg
where he had been running a bar for several years, he followed the teasing gleam of
the northern metropolis Hamburg in 1996 and moved to the city with its seaport-flair
and its never sleeping amusement district St. Pauli. He had been working as a DJ
even before, but it was here that he began to focus more and more on Black American
Music in general and 50s / early 60s R&B in particular, from time to time also
plunging deeply into Popcorn. Over the years he established himself as a true
landmark in the stormy sea of St. Pauli’s nightlife, besides other things he and his
companions started a monthly R&B/Soul Club, aptly named ‘For Dancers Only’. As he
has been working most of his life in obscure bars at nighttime, the true habitat of
R&B Music therefore, he can be described best as not only loving, but also living
this style of music!

60’s and 70’s Black Music addict, he’s a member of Lava Records and founded the

and also co-organised a few scooter rallies in Perpignan from 2003 to 2007. Graphic
designer, he often creates 6T’s and 7T’s influenced designs for gigs, trad
ska/reggae/soul groups and other people interested in vintage inspiration. Reggae
and Soul 45’s collector, he played in several clubs in France, Belgium, North
England, Switzerland, Gemany and Catalonia. He played for the first parts of some

ROCK-OLA JORDI (Barcelona):
 
He is, without a doubt, the most international Spanish DJ in the R’n’R scene. He has
carried his records around the best festivals and parties in England  (“Teddy Boy
Weekender” in Great Yarmouth, “Wildest Cats In Town” in Lowestoft, “Ready Teddy Go”
in Cleethorpes), Germany (“Sunbeam Rock’n’Roll Club” in Frankfurt, “Panhandle Rebs
Club” in Düsseldorf, “Walldorf Rock’n’Roll Weekender”, “Foggy Mountain Rockers” in
Niederkassel, “2nd International Rockabilly Meeting” in Oberhausen), France, Finland
(“Crown Fire Rock’n’Roll Festival”)…

He was caught by the sounds of Bill Haley and Elvis Presley at the tender age of 10
or 11. Without a doubt he was predestined to live the Rock’n’Roll lifestyle because
it was at the age of 17 when he first stepped behind the decks of  the Rockin’ Bar
“Swing” in Huesca. Since then, he has been at the wheel of many clubs in his
hometown, Barcelona  (“Magic R’n’R Club”, the mythical  teddy boy club “Crepes &
Drapes Appreciation Society”…) and he has been guest DJ of an endless list of
rockabilly parties and festivals in Spain (“Fifties Teds Rock’n’Roll Club”,
“Screamin’ Festival”, “High Rockabilly”, “Rockin’ Race Jamboree”, “Hot Rock
Festival”…).
 
Aside from his prolific activity as a DJ, Jordi was the editor of the Ted Magazine
“Boogie Bop Dame”, and one of the promoters of the “Rock’n’Roll Heaven Festival”.
