Daniel Haaksman has been touring the world for over twenty years as a DJ and music producer, digging exciting, new, local music styles and making them accessible to a wider audience.

On his newest album effort, "With Love, From Berlin", Daniel Haaksman focuses on the city in which he has lived for over twenty years: Berlin. Since the late nineties, the German capital has changed radically. The regional metropolis has become an international boomtown, growing by 50,000 new arrivals annually. Berlin today has become a global magnet for tourists and, in a crisis-ridden political world, incidentally turned into Noah's Ark for refugees from Syria or Afghanistan, but also intellectuals from Hungary, Poland, Turkey, even from Great Britain or the USA - those with the new nationalism of their countries can not do anything or have lost their job opportunities for political reasons. And of course there are the many international artists and musicians who have long since turned Berlin into a global center for contemporary art and music.

"With Love, From Berlin" is Daniel Haaksman's third studio album. On his new album the Berlin DJ and music producer focuses on the growing cultural globalization of Berlin. For this, Haaksman cooperated with numerous international artists living in Berlin, such as Cibelle (Brazil), Robert Owens (USA), Dengue Dengue Dengue (Peru), Paul St. Hilaire (Dominica), Kalaf Angelo (Angola), She's Drunk ( France), Coco Maria (Mexico), Ori Kaplan (Israel), Lavoisier (Portugal), Kzia (Belgium). In the nine album tracks Haaksman and his artistic partners musically and lyrically reflect Berlin as a global place of longing and its drastic change. Berlin is echoed as an El Dorado for sexual self-determination ("Corpo Sujeito" ft. Cibelle), identity finding ("Occupy Berlin" ft. Kalaf Angelo), as a city of freedom and fun ("24-7" ft. Robert Owens + Kzia) , as a transitional place for the artistic self-realization ("Como Sera" ft. Lavoisier) and personal maturation, ("La A├▒oranza" ft. Coco Maria, Dengue Dengue Dengue + Ori Kaplan), or simply as an exciting city ("City Life" ft. Paul St.Hilaire). The nine tracks of "With Love, From Berlin" are musical postcards from the Berlin of today. As international as the city is, so diverse is the music of the album, for which Daniel Haaksman picks up current global circulating music genres such as kizomba, baile funk, afrobeats, trap, reggaeton or dub and subjects it to his typical music hybridizations. Each track embodies a different perspective on the city, which is as heterogeneous and diversified as few major German cities, and will retain its role as a dream destination in 2019.
