Likably undisguised, always surprising and full of verve – putting Mathias Kaden‘s charisma in a nutshell is one thing. Another is the feeling of hearing him live in a night club or open air – nothing feels like that. Very naturally he absorbs the audience‘s vibe and radiates his own energy into it – no matter whether it‘s for a warm-up, at prime time or whilst closing. Mathias Kaden has been a DJ for more than 15 years now. And after more than 1500 gigs he still hasn‘t lost his addictive enthusiasm which has given special moments to fans on dancefloors on almost all continents.
Mathias Kaden‘s gig radius has vastly extended in the past years, with regular performances at well-known clubs and festivals around the world, including his residency at Cocoon Ibiza at Amnesia. Nevertheless he has stayed closely-knit with his Thuringian heimat. Since 1998 he lovingly nurtures his residency at the legendary Muna, a club that for more than 20 years has been and continues to be hightly appreciated as an important location for ambitious parties outside of Berlin, Hamburg et al. At the also well known club Kassablanca in neighbouring Jena, Kaden was promoting the Klanglauf night for ten years which hosted renowned DJs like Luciano, Steve Bug, Solomun and Soulphiction. And finally, Freude am Tanzen has become Mathias Kaden‘s home – due to longstanding friendships and their work as a label and booking agency.
