For the first time in Germany: welcome JULIAN SARTORIUS with his gargantuan BEAT DIARY-solo project, presenting an exclusive one off BERLIN-show on HALLOWEEN!
JULIAN SARTORIUS is a drummer, a producer and a gentleman. You might know him from his sterling work with Dimlite.
He recently embarked on a project to make one beat every day for a whole year. Titled ‘THE BEAT DIARY’ it is now available in its entirety in an adequate analogue manner: consisting of 365 beats pressed on 12 LPs alongside a book with 365 photos, a poster and a personal download code for all 365 compositions.
Julian Sartorius | Beat Diary Trailer
The beat is the defining element in the life of Julian Sartorius. Born 1981 in Thun (Switzerland), he began his first drum lessons at the age of five and followed his passion via marches, Michael Jackson and as a member of local underground bands.
With his rhythms, which push the boundaries of New Music, Hip-Hop and World Music, Sartorius reveals the endless possibilities and range of his instrument. He often prepares his drums, works with unusual, unprocessed acoustic sounds and develops, beat by beat, an unheard environment of sound.

Julian Sartorius was taught by musicians such as Fabian Kuratli, Pierre Favre and Norbert Pfammatter at the Jazz Schools in Bern and Lucerne. He has collaborated with Sophie Hunger, Colin Vallon, Dimlite, Merz, Jürg Halter and Rhys Chatham.
DJ support comes from SLINGSHOT with some ultra rare funk breaks and PLANET ROCK’s own FETT with significantly less rare stuff…
