Joschka Mischer


I'm Joschka R. Mahlstedt, alias Joschka Mischer.
A 30 year old guy, currently living in a town near Hamburg/Germany,
who wants to make his family proud and tries to change his lifestyle by sharing his greatest passion... and that is making music!


Early on I was always influenced by my father's love for music and his vast knowledge about the bands from his youth. I sometimes caught him listening to a vinyl record, singing, snapping with his fingers, whistling to the very loud music, bouncin' around... while cooking... I began to listen more and more to the charts of the 90's and I found myself very much attracted to pop music, until my older brother introduced me to Punk Rock music. I digged it... and after a few years his taste in music had changed the direction to Hip Hop and I digged that even more.

After getting nowhere in life, learning a "real" craft and doing a "real" job, so to speak, I decided to follow my heart and that is truly in love with music. I wanted to be a part of it... somehow...

At some point I wanted to become a rapper but after a few years of writing, trying to record it to "free" beats didn't satisfy me and my friend. Also I wasn't sure about myself and that rap thingy and soon we had our hands on a piece of software called Fruity Loops... We had some fun with it, but weren't sure how it really worked... after a few setbacks in my life I decided to learn more about music theory and how to use Fruity Loops to create our own beats to rap on and maybe to create something out of this whole audio production thing, like a business... I found myself learning the basics and produced non-stop... from that point on I didn't write any rhymes anymore and was somewhat addicted to making beats...

It evolved somehow to digging and buying samples, hardware and software with all the money I could afford and spending countless hours of watching youtube videos, reading articles on audio production sites all over the internet to learn music theory and the business side of music, like founding a music company, licensing beats, sounds and loops to other artists, producers and companies, performance rights organizations and digital distribution. I wanted to try to execute all what I have learned... but I got stuck at producing and that is what I did the last 12 years... I did got distracted from time to time and I am still not finished learning yet, but that is life I guess.

I want to achieve something with all the gained knowledge about audio production and the beats I have already created (around 1000) and that is... happiness!
For me, my family and friends and you!
