Top-5: Mr. Ties

0

“Mr Ties is Francesco De Nittis, a 26-year-old DJ from Giovinazzo, a small port city in Southern Italy. He left home as a teenager, eventually landing in a squat in Berlin, a city he now considers his true home. For the past few years, he’s been the main resident and creative force behind Homopatik, a once-a-month, all-day and all-night party at://about blank. This has given him a small cult following in the city” (Resident Advisor)
