Prince Charming in Germany, Hamlet in Denmark, & DJ Chancellor in Heaven

Traumprinz, Prince of Denmark, and DJ Metatron are three pseudonyms used by the most prolific artist on the esteemed, niche record label Giegling, which specializes in vinyl-only releases of melancholic deep house, tech house, and dub techno.
