— Please, tell us more about yourself and especially your artistic development. How did you start your way in the industry?
— I started djing at an early age and was infected with electronic music in the early 90s because I grew up near Frankfurt, the capital of techno at the time. I taught myself how to DJ with vinyl and followed the scene very closely, worked in a record shop and went to the trendy clubs like Omen and Dorian Gray to dance to the beats of the idols of the time Sven Väth, Talla2XLC or Frank Lorber.
But school and working after moving to the Freiburg region took precedence, and so djing in my region was always just a hobby on the side for years. But It has always been my biggest passion and after my first gig in 2015 at the fantastic SEA You Festival near Freiburg and the opportunity to play in front of a crowd of over 4000 people, I made the decision to do it all professionally from now on. In 2017, my first tracks were signed to labels like Riot and Reload Black and I slowly managed to gain a foothold and started getting attention.
In 2018 I signed my first EP on IAMT and Spartaque became aware of me. That's why I'm still very grateful to him and the IAMT family for this opportunity, because it was the beginning of my real entry into the industry and I also got my first national and international gigs.
Since then, I have only concentrated on my dj career and the business and work hard every day to achieve success. My tracks have now been released on the biggest labels like Codex, Unrilis, Orange, SayWhat? or Prospect and just recently I managed my first top 3 placement in the Main Techno Top 100 with my track "Bluster Of The Sea" on the top label Set About. That was a really big success for me. It shows, that it's always worth believing in yourself and your dreams and working hard for your goals.
That's why, as a smaller artist, I think it's very important, especially now in this difficult and hard time for all of us, not to give up and to present myself and my music to the people out there and to show that we still exist and will still exist after this crisis.
Therefore, an appeal to all my artist friends: Don't stop making music, fight for what you love, people are waiting and need our music in this difficult time to forget the everyday life a little bit. The time will come and we will all rave together again.
