first steps

It   was   in   the   spring   of   1984   when   I   stand   for   the   first   time   at   a   mixing   desk.   That   was   in   a   cellar   of a   Youth   House   in   Leverkusen.   More   than   100   guests   celebrated   in   the   "phonothek“   and   danced   to "Sweet   Dreams"   of   Eurithmics   or   to   Queens   "I   want   to   break   free".   Queen   was   the   very   first rekord   I   played   in   front   of   an   audience.   On   vinyl   and   a   tangential   turntable.   I   think   it   was   Technics SL7   at   the   time.   The   turntables   were   really   unsuable   for   mixing.   The   happieness   with   music   was and   is   still   in   the   foreground   for   my   work   and   of   course   the   emotions   that   music   can   trigger.   I don‘t   like   the   DJs   hiding   behind   their   cappy   and   face   down,   I   like   to   watch   the   people.   Over   the years I have been able to experience so many great moments.

Ibiza influences

Ibiza   have   great   musical   influence.   I‘ve   spend   many   time   on   this   lovely   white   island.   In   2017   I   was booked   for   the   Hush   in   Ibiza   in   the   West   End   of   Sant   Antoni   and   was   part   of   the   Nexus   Ibiza   Radio Show   on   wideline.it,   which   is   broadcast   live   from   the   Mambo   Studio   Ibiza,   directly   above   the world   famous   Cafe   Mambo.   On   these   decks   were   already   all   the   biggest   DJs   of   the   world   from David   Guetta   to   Carl   Cox   and   now   I   was   playing   there   :-).   I   definitely   had   there   a   lot   of   great experiences and met many great people.

musical style

My   musical   style   in   the   1980s   was   above   all   what   danceable   music   was   in   the   german   TOP   100.   In the   nineties   it   was   the   direction   of   Euro-Dance   with   Dr.   Alban,   La   Bouche,   Culture   Beat,   Snap   or Robin    S.    At    that    time,    for    the    most    part,    I    even    played    in    Pacha    in    Opladen,    an    unofficial "DepenDance"   of   the   Pacha   that   only   existed   in   this   time   in   Ibiza.      Cherries,   graced   everything advertising effective, from the glass to Slipmat, in this small, but very cool discotheque. Always    in    my    repertoire    was    House,    which    also    fits    more    in    the    Ibizan    Pacha.    Preferably Deephouse,   Techhouse   and   also   the   funky   tracks   as   well   as   Chill   Out   and   the   beloved   Balearic Sound   à   la   DJ   Pippi.   Unfortunately,   there   was   vinyl   nearly   gone,   but   now   it's   finally   getting   more. And DVS at least gives the feeling back, although I do not like sratching;-).

producing

For   Spinnup   Germany,   in   2016   I   was   allowed   to   produce   a   remix   of   the   pop   oratorio   Luther,   a musical   that   tells   the   story   of   Martin   Luther,   by   Dieter   Falk   (a   big   german   producer   and   juror   of the   TV   Casting   Show   on   Pro7   "Popstars")   and   in   2017   with   a   choir   of   up   to   4,000   people   touring through   various   large   halls   in   Germany   and   in   October   2017   was   on   TV   (ZDF).   In   Dusseldorf   I   was then   invited   to   the   performance   and   when   the   title   of   3000   people   was   sung,   in   which   I   have   now worked   a   little   bit,   I   had   goose   bumps   from   head   to   toe.   Due   to   the   tight   guidelines   for   the   remix, "Die   Wahrheit   ist   ein   scharfes   Schwert“   (english:   The   Truth   is   a   Sharp   Sword)   has   become   a danceable   pop   song   from   the   actual   ballad,   and   I   would   have   liked   to   change   more.   Other remixes,   u.a.   from   the   Flying   Pickets,   Lionel   Richie   or   the   Steve   Miller   Band   are   already   finished, "only" the releases of the right holders are missing.

mixtapes

My      mixtapes      ( http://www.djof69.com/mixtapes.htm .),      All      harmoniously      mixed      (keyword: Harmonic   Mixing,   Camelot   Wheel   :-)),   I   rekorded   them   with   Serato   DJ   and   the   DDJ-SX2   from Pioneer   or   the   Pioneer   XDJ   1000mk2   or   CDJ   2000   nx2   on.   I   prefer   to   play   in   clubs   or   festivals   with the   CDJs.   Most   of   the   time   I   released   them   on   Beatport   and   Youtube   and   in   August   2016   I   was   in first   place   of   the   worldwide   Beatport   TOP   100   DJ   Charts   and   since   then   I   have   been   there   until   the end   of   the   service   in   December   2017   the   TOP   20   of   the   DJ   charts.   My   first   number   one   mix   was   in August   2016   "Ibiza   Summer   -   Vol.   2   -   Chill   at   the   sundowner"   in   the   Beatport   Mixcharts.   Since then, there have been 16 mixes in the TOP 10, three of them in 1st place.
