Daniel Fernando Wahl, better known as DJ Daferwa, was born 1979 in the German town of Tübingen. Raised in a Mexican-German household he soon got in touch with a broad variety of Latin-American music. In the mid-nineties he started to get into rap, hip hop and house while he was also being attracted by the power of reggae, dub and UK sounds. Since 2005 Daferwa has been actively contributing to Cologne’s nightlife. His sets are innovative and rhythmical trips containing anything from melodic hip hop, dancehall and cumbia to massive moombahton, electronic beats and house influenced beats with a tropical flavour.
