My name is Martin Langer. I come from Lower Franconia (northern part of Bavaria) and I live in Berlin since August 2008. I am a harmonic and peaceful person and always try to be positive. That means I try to stay away from all negativity and pessimistic people. Surrounding myself with lovely and caring people.
A part of my money I earn as a freelancer in the internet, e-commerce and consulting area. I am a good judge of character and human nature, often asked for advice by my friends .
After a current state research, I fairly quick realize how to improve things, texts, organizational matters, planning, sales and usability. So sometimes I am hired by companies to improve their processes and workflows. Because me as an outsider, sees a lot of aspects that have not been considered by the internal staff. Furthermore, I make occasional excellent websites for companies, artists and labels. (http://www.shopmaker1.com)
However, my biggest passion is music. I am a passionate musician, DJ and producer. Playing records since 2003 and I still have a lot of fun digging, buying and playing records in my dj sets. Under the alias Martin Lewis I release warm sounding house and disco music in digital form and on vinyl on several labels.
I also decided to produce, dj and make live sets under the German pseudonym AUSSTEIGER. The name originated when I was living withdrawn in the woods for 2 years, isolated from civilisation to focus on producing and making music. As Aussteiger Beats are melodic, soulful and between 85 and 125 BPM (= beats per minute) Martin Lewis produces and plays more 4-To-The-Floor oriented between 110 and up to 136 BPM.
Furthermore I run a small record label since 2008 called Profound on which I release music digitally that is created by my friends and music buddies. Sometimes I create a remix for some songs.
Since January 2016 I also founded a dope ass vinyl Label called Dub Disco with my mate Maximillian aka Serj Nosé. We already made some nice t-shirts and the first record on 180g heavy vinyl was released in July 2016.
Of course I also like to travel the world and experience different cultures. I just came back from Cuba, where I spent 3 weeks travelling this amazing country. I will do a post about my cuba trip with some picutres soon.
I start this blog as part of the LYL Challenge as writing and blogging helps you to find who you truly are. Become a self expert: Know Yourself!
The goal is also to just start writing, to show thoughts and publish ideas.
I chose the name duboffice as dub stands for music (that I´m very passionate about) and office for the work on the computer in an office, in a cafe, at the beach or wherever. So I think it´s a good name to start with that displays my two passions (music & work on the computer, internet, blogging, etc).
I also found out that it makes me happy if I can help and support people in any way. Helping, teaching and supporting just makes me feel good.
I´m not sure yet, where the journey will go, but there is a nice saying:
THE JOURNEY IS THE REWARD.
Stay fresh, focused and keep it easy!
