about

first steps

It   was   in   the   spring   of   1984   when   I   stand   for   the   first   time   behind   the   decks. 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".   This   7“   Vinyl   of   Queen   was   the   very   first rekord   I   played   in   front   of   an   audience.   On   a   tangential   turntable.   I   think   it was   Technics   SL7   at   the   time.   The   turntables   were   absolutly   unsuable   for mixing. Touching the rekord while playing? Impossible … 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   for   me   big   musical   influence.   I‘ve   spend   many   time   on   this   lovely white   island.   In   2017   I   was   booked   for   the   Club   Hush   in   Ibiza   in   the   West   End of   Sant   Antoni   and   was   in   2017   &   2018   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.   Allthough   they   let   me   in   2018   on   the decks   from   Ibiza   Global   Radio.   On   these   decks   were   already   all   the   biggest DJs   of   the   world   from   David   Guetta   up   to   the   king   himself   Carl   Cox   playing and   now   me   :-).   I   definitely   have   there   everytime   a   lot   of   great   experiences and   met   many   great   people,   for   example      Anna   Tur,   Jack   Eye   Jones,   Mark Loren, Max Porcelli, Woody van Eyden and Zonderling.

musical style

My   musical   style   in   the   80s   was   above   all   what   danceable   music   was   in   the german   TOP   75/100.   In   the   90s   it   was   mostly   Euro-Dance   with   Dr. Alban,   La Bouche,   Culture   Beat,   Snap   or   Robin      S   and   more.      At      this      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.      The famose    two    cherries,    graced    everything    advertising    effective,    from    the ground   of   the   dancefloor,   down   to   the   slipmats   on   the   SL1200s.   Pache Opladen   was   a   small,   but   very   cool   club.   Everytime      in      my      rekordboxes     was      Housemusic,      which         fits      more      in      the   real   Ibizan      Pacha.      Preferably Deephouse,   Techhouse   and   also   the   funky   tracks   as   well   as   Chill   Out   and the   classics   of   the   80s   &   90s,   and   not   to   forget   the   beloved   Balearic   Sound   à la DJ Pippi.

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.   In   January   of   2018   my   first   complete   selfproduced   single   comes   out and   is   able   in   all   shops   (Itunes,   amazon,   beatport   and   more…   &   streaming stations like Apple Music, Deezer or Spotify and so on.
