Andreas Henneberg selects 10 commanding tunes ahead of Ocaso Festival
With experience gathered in his hometown of Berlin as a producer, DJ, label owner and mastering engineer, Andreas Henneberg has been a force within, around and behind the scene for over 15 years.
Owner of his Voltage Musique imprint, Henneberg has also released on esteemed labels like Herzblut, IDEAL Audio, Desert Hearts, Toolroom, Confused Recordings, Kiddaz.FM and Material.
Always pairing his contagious showmanship behind the decks with a tasty blend of tech house, minimal and techno, Andreas Henneberg consistently proves that he has his finger on the pulse when it comes to reading the dancefloor in front him.
Before heading down to Costa Rica’s Ocaso Festival for the second year in a row, Henneberg has selected 10 elite club tracks that give his sets a boost of adrenalin on a regular basis.

This year’s striking lineup includes artists like Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus, Gene Farris, Sacha Robotti, Jamie Jones, H.O.S.H, Magdalena, Desert Hearts brethren Mikey Lion and Lee Reynolds, West Coast rave leader Doc Martin, Kevin Knapp and more.
