Christian Fischer a.k.a. Playpad Circus is an eclectic musician/composer/beatmaker from Berlin.

A couple of years later, not saving money for that serious electric guitar, he rather spent the cash on turntables that led his way from Hip-Hop to experimental electronic music.

His love for boombastic sounds, film scores, rock and club music as well as the ability to handle and combine all those different styles in his works, made him an established figure in the new German electronic scene. Soon afterwards, Playpad Circus’ connections reached out to international level where has made official remixes for a diverse bunch of Hip-Hop and Indie/Electronica acts such as Kraddy (formerly of The Glich Mob), Subtle (Lex Records), 2econd Class Citizen (Equinox), Bleubird (Endemik), among others.
