Welcome to the first installment of our PITSCAST series.
Our first guest has performed at several of our events here in Detroit, and it is safe to say he will take us on a smooth ride to techno heaven. An Austrian born DJ, he has played in clubs throughout Europe and Southeast Asia and dipped deeply into dance culture globally. His sounds bring a feeling that is undeniably a unique interpretation of his place in time and space.
We are pleased to welcome, Alexander Schwank.

Detroit DJ and producer, John Joseph, has teamed up with vocalist King Visionary to take you for a night drive.
For all in the tri-county area, a cruise down M-10 into the city is a familiar feeling. The track is a breathy homage to the warm, saturated synths of classic house and, infused with future soul vocals, evokes a feeling that is undeniably Detroit. The video gives a glimpse of a few places along the road that have inspired the two friends, from local art installations to the dark bastions where the bass keeps thumping until the sun comes up. Being simultaneously the birthplace of techno and one of the most competitive hip-hop scenes in the nation, the artists’ shared roots co-mingle for the inception of a new sound. The track will be featured on the upcoming inaugural release on the PITS imprint, PTS 001: John Joseph – Saint Aubin EP.
