Welcome back to Selections, a series of artist-curated playlists from those in the know.

Thabo is an artist very much entrenched in his home city’s scene. Born and bred in Berlin, he’s the mastermind behind the label and party Home Again. Thabo – real name Nils Thabo Gelfort – is also a DJ, producer and artist in his own right with a focus on soulful, house music at the core of his own work as well as his label’s output.

Having started up Home Again as an event series, Thabo launched the label arm back in 2020 and has since platformed a range of artists across the house music spectrum with releases from Szafran, Thalo Santana, DJOKO and Thabo himself. Now, the imprint is gearing up for its inaugural festival later this month, marking its biggest event to date with a 65 hour non-stop party at RSO Berlin. Boasting a stacked line-up featuring Leon Vynehall, DJ Assault, Elijah, Interplanetary Criminal and Satoshi Tomiie the event will also host a programme of panel discussions and masterclasses.

For his Selections playlist, Thabo gives a taste of his forthcoming set at Home Again Club Festival featuring groove-driven tracks from the likes of Sally C, e-freq and Detroit In Effect as well as Fantastic Man – the latter of whom will be playing after Thabo at the event. Get locked in below.

Thabo plays Home Again Club Festival at RSO, Berlin on 19-22 May.
