How did you start?

I started my DJ career when I was 19/20 years old. Prior to that I was playing occaisionally in small clubs around Frankfurt. My first record came out in 2007 on my own Label Deep Vibes Recordings.

Where are you currently based?

In Frankfurt, Germany.

What are you working on right now?

I am currently in the process of finishing the last tracks for my new album which will be released in the summer of 2018. In addition I am working on a remix for Joe Smooth which again comes out next year on Trax.

What is your gear setup?

Ableton Live and a vast amount of analog equiqment. I use, amongst others, drum machines from Roland and Jomox & Vermona and synths from Waldorf, Roland, Moog & Nord.

What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?

Right now I am enjoying the wonderful experience of being a father. Not quite sure if that is having a positive or negative (time consuming) effect on my music but it is fun! Ha, ha!

Generally I am of the opinion that whatever one does, whoever one meets or wherever one goes there is always something that effects your feelings and which, sooner or later, affects/influences your music in some way or another, even if the effect is not always immediately obvious to ones self!

Do you know any music theory?

Truthfully no, not as yet! I started, one might say, quite by chance in the field of electronic music! To learn more about music and notes is certainly on my “Things to do” list!

What are your plans for the future?

Finish my album. Be a good father. Further my music tours around the world. Buy a house in Ibiza – hahaha!!

What are you listening to at the moment?

All kinds of music – currently biased towards Hip Hop, Jazz and Soul. In fact I have just been listening to some old Isacc Hayes albums.

Who are your top 5 influences and icons?

Influences:- Parents


Soul & Funk

Hip Hop

House Musik

Icons:          Moodymann
