Press Text
Born2Roll is Berlin`s best known monthly hip hop jam.

Started in 2005 at Cassiopeia in Berlin, 1000 people come through the door every month and it's no wonder with head honcho DJ Dister leading the way on the decks. One of the first people to embrace video mixing in Europe, Dister lives and breathes hip hop. Raised on graffiti in Berlin, he has skills on the buttons as well as the turntables and his forthcoming album features the likes of Artifacts, Kool Keith, Masta Ace.. to name but a few....

Dister was bitten by the hip-hop bug in the late
Eighties, when he saw his first painted S-Bahn train
roll past in previously inaccessible West Berlin.
This inspired him to pick up his own spray cans
and he spent the Nineties lacing trains with bold,
full-colour pieces – and the tag Dister was born. From painting trains, Dister began to collect records by the likes of Public Enemy, NWA and LL Cool J
and played them out at a night that would run for eight years. Called ‘Born 2 Roll’,
It was Berlin’s premier hip-hop event and brought talent like Masta Ace,
Lords of the Underground, KRS One and the Beatnuts to the Cassiopeia club - one of Friedrichshain's finest
music spots.

Continually innovating, Dister has now turned his hand to production
and his debut album, ‘Roll Wit Dis’, charts his rich cultural history and features musical luminaries
who rocked his Berlin parties. He brings KRS One, Kool G Rap and Greg Nice together for the first time ever and showcases new rap talent Maffew Ragazino, Torae or Skyzoo together with legends like Jeru the Damaja, Kool Keith or Masta Ace.
