Warte:mal started his DJ career playing in various radical collectives, social house projects and pirate parties in Copenhagen in 2012. But back then he was spinning post-hip-hop, ghetto funk, glitch and psychedelic downbeat.
After getting his initiation on Fusion Festival - he fell in love with the suave Berlin bummeltech.
Valdemar was born and raised in a social housing project in the suburbs of Smile City - Aarhus, Denmark. Growing up in a multicultural neighbourhood next to an orphanage exposed him to Hip Hop culture from an early age. Hanging out with the juvenile delinquents next door brought a lot of mad adventures with it, ranging from exploring the myriad of sewers under the hood to treasure hunting in the industrial area across the street. And of cause a healthy amount of skating, break-dancing and graffiti.
There where no piano in his childhood home, but in Waldorf School, he learned to sing and play the flute from 1st grade and was chosen to play the violin from 3rd grade. He continued to play violin in symphonic orchestras and big bands throughout his teenage years. He would also join two bands playing the bass guitar, and in 2007 he played the viola on Epicentre's debut album Fokus.
In 2008 he moved to Copenhagen where he joined the anarchist movement. At the Art House Bolsjefabrikken, he participated in loads of cultural activism, happenings, presswork, documentary screening, subversive TV and of cause loads of free parties.
With his friend and DJ colleague Tadoh, he started the monthly soliparty Folkets Haus to ease the weight of throwing solidarity parties and to introduce the radical left to deep house.
In 2015 he moved to Berlin to follow his dream of producing his own music, but went on a hedonistic voyage - and quite fast his passion and taste for good music and mixing skills brought him back behind the decks in renowned clubs like Kater Blau, Sisyphos, Renate, Charlet and Rummelsbucht.
He got the idea to turn Rebellion der Träumer into a label as he envisioned it to be the perfect platform to launch a revolution of the music industry - by building a blockchain based music service where music no longer is seen as a commodity. He strongly believes that it is possible to build a sustainable music industry if people instead of buying music would donate an amount on a monthly basis that would be distributed pr played seconds between the played tracks.
Warte:mal have played in 12 countries and on 14 festivals in the summer of 2017.
