Kool & The Gang - Get Down On It (A Oliver Momm Mix 91)

Oliver Momm is a Westfalian music producer and remixer. He has a studio in Beckum, named Oliver Momm Productions.


Music projects

In the early 1990s he joined techno music with his own projects The Creator and Federal Base. He also made his name with remixes, most notably Valerie Dore's "The Night" and Kool And The Gang's "Celebration". In 1998, he was part of the German dance campaign United Deejays For Central America, which collected donations with each sold release of "Too much rain".

Oliver Momm mixes

Most famous and popular are his megamixes, once broadcast at the German radio station EinsLive in their Partyservice, moderated by DJ Piet Blank. His monthly mixes in 1999 were so popular that they were illegally pressed and sold as hardcopy. Momm responded with a legal and official purchasable release called Oliver Momm Gigamix, released in spring 1999.

All of his monthly mixes are just for radio streaming and not released as hardcopy or download. So his mixes are offered for download - for free or illegally if paid.

In 2004, the Saturday EinsLive Partyservice was replaced by EinsLive Kruising where the Oliver Momm mixes were rarely broadcast.

In 2006, EinsLive stopped working with Momm because of modifications and changes to their broadcast programs. The Partymix in November 2006 was his last.

Oliver Momm Partymix

His monthly mixes, broadcast at the end of the month, were always given the month's name and their club and dance tracks. Running to one hour, they often phad a break within to start a new or faster style. These party mixes always include techno, trance, house and electro tunes. They were broadcast every months except December, when his Gigamix took place.

Oliver Momm Digimix

Sometimes named for some less partymixes, just like the Digimix July 2000 or Digimix June 2003. In 2004, Digimixes werebroadcast only. The 2004 digimixes differ from the partymixes because they have no break within, with the exception of the Digimix April 2004 which has a break in the middle to start a Members Of Mayday Mix and does not have the latest club tunes mixed as usual. It includes some past club tracks mixed with some 2004 released tunes.

Oliver Momm Gigamix

Often called Oliver Momm Jahresmix, these were the year end megamixes, crossing over all styles, beginning with slow R'n'B and hip hop tunes, ending in techno, trance and progressive house tunes. These megamixes extended on average over 70 to 80 tunes, many for just a few seconds, partially a cappella. Momm said that these Gigamixes took more time than a usual Partymix; four to five weeks was the time range to present a brilliant year end mix.

The Gigamix 2004 was harder work. Momm said the Gigamix 2004 would not usually exist because fewer releases in 2004.
