When I was born, television was not as much of a big deal as it is nowadays (back then, there were only three programs). Thus, the TV was not switched on until evening hours, when I was already in bed. My mom, who was quite young, listened to music non-stop. I noticed that this situation has not failed to leave a mark on me. When I was twelve years old, my mom had another baby boy, which entailed that I never got to enjoy my own room. It was not easy for me, especially being a teen-ager. Music helped me to cope with that situation! My stereo and my great head-set helped me create my own room in my imagination. Usually, when kids want to be left alone, they go to their room and lock the door! I used to put my headset on, turned on the music and I drifted into my dream world and did not care about the rest of the world. The longer the speech, the less thought: Since always, music has played a major role in my life!
I was introduced to electronic music in the early 1990’. Shortly after getting to know Culture Beat, 2Unlimited, Marusha, U96 and Scooter (Hyper Hyper), I started getting into Techno and House!
In 1995, when I was just 16 years old, I discovered a night-club where I used to sneak in. I was still minor of age. It was the so-called TOR 3 in Düsseldorf!! Wow, what an amazing club!!! People who remember this place know what I am talking about…this was it! I was in love!!! My life consisted of nothing else but school and TOR 3. I went there every weekend for 6 month! After that, it was shut down and was only opened for special events, for instance, UNION RAVE or ACID WARS! I was terribly sad!
Although dj’s were like gods to me, I didn’t think of becoming a dj back then. In the beginning, it was just about the party for me. It was until that day when my best friend met her new boy-friend back then in 2004. He is the first dj whom I got to know in person. I regularly watched him play music. That’s how I got more interested in becoming a dj. I was amazed and thought I will be able to do the same. By the end of 2005, I had saved up enough money to buy myself my own equipment (2MK2 + DENON soundmixer) at the music store!
After having understood the basics of playing music, I gained experience with live dj’s at friends’ houses until the year of 2009! And then finally in 2009, I was the opening dj at a public party at KOLBHALLE !!! It is hard to imagine, how nervous I was!!! Luckily, the club was filled from the very beginning, since it was somebody’s birthday at that party. After having played the first three disks without having made a mistake, I went from a feeling of being nervous to a feeling of pure adrenaline and I rocked the house! After that I played at BUTAN CLUB Wuppertal,RHEINGOLD Düsseldorf, FEIER RHEIN OPEN AIR, ELEKTROKÜCHE, ESSIGFABRIK, BLUMENGOLD, KUNSTPARK, AXA-Tower, PFORT XI, NEU SCHWANSTEIN AND MANY MORE....
