Purple Disco Machine

The music of Tino Schmidt’s childhood came to him under the cover of darkness, through shady back alleys, smuggled through borders. Born and raised in Dresden in the German Democratic Republic, young Tino would have to rely on his avid music fan of a dad – a cheery teacher by day – going out into the night in search of black market music, cassettes or vinyl by rock bands forbidden in East Germany. The deeply roted love affair with music was inevitable from that point on. and the DJ known both as Tino Pointek and Purple Disco Machine has been producing and creating music for the better part of the last 25 years now. With his bags filled with house music, Purple Disco Machine will make his way to Lollapalooza Stockholm in 2022.
