I was born the 28th October 1978. I think this is a nice Date get on Earth. It`s the same Day as Bil Gates and Mahmud Ahmadinedschad the President of Republic of Iran.

I was born the 28th October 1978. I think this is a nice Date get on Earth. It`s the same Day as Bil Gates and Mahmud Ahmadinedschad the President of Republic of Iran. Early as Child my Parent`s saw that i was very interested in Music and made it possible to take different Instrument Classes at the Music Academy in Basel Switzerland. With six Years i started with the same Instrument Million`s of other Children`s started once their Music Career. My first Instrument i learned was the Flute. Twice a Week i had Lessons and the Skill grew really fast. That fast that already after one Year i moved to the alto Recorder. That is pretty much the Same thing just a little bit Longer then the normal Flute. After a few Years with the Alto Recorder i got bored with it and moved on to the Piano. That was really a wonderful Instrument but the Teacher i had was not really a friendly Person so i didn’t liked it that much. I found out that i already learned the basics and i began to practice for my self at the Piano we had at Home. With around thirteen Years i got back to Classes but i didn’t choose the Piano again. No started to take Clarinet Lesson`s. That was an Instrument i really liked and enjoyed to play. Anyone playing the Clarinet knows that once you have a certain level of Skill with it it`s no more so hard to get into the Sax. So i started to play around with the Sax but i was more into the Clarinet.
You see my Music Career was already there before i really got into DJing. To be honest i`m not really sure if i would have started ever to be a DJ if it would not be for my Brother. He was the one that got into DJing first. He is six Years older then me so he was hanging out already at Party`s when i was not even aware that there was something like a Party scene. He bought Turntables and started to buy Records at the Local Record store called Panthera Records. I was not really interested in that Music Style because i was more into Hip-Hop. This was my Passion in those Times. From N.W.A. to L.L. Cool J and back to Run DMC i had them all at Home banging them all Day long. I banged it so much that my Father once got angry and told me to Stop playing those three Black Guys that are standing around a Burning Barrel. You can`t blame him the only Cover he ever saw was the one of the Run DMC Album called together Forever. So for him any Hip-Hop was just three Black Guy`s standing around a burning Barrel. Slowly i was more interested with the Music that my Brother was playing in the Room next to me because the Beats and the Voices sounded so good. So i was hanging more and more in his Room checking out what he was doing with those Turntables and Records he had there taking all the Space in the small Room. I was listening the first Time to House but i didn’t liked anything that i heard until he brought home that blue with the White Cross in the middle. It was the Barbara Tucker Record called Beautiful Peoples and it was the Masters at Work Mix he was playing all Day Long. The Intro is so nice and Barbara Tucker has a amazing Voice. I was like hypnotized by that Voice and those Strings that where so different from anything i heard before. That was the Moement when anything started.
Around one Year later i was already living in my own Place i bought my first Turntables and a really Cheap and Bad Mixer. My first Turntables where not Techniks like i bought short Time later. Like anyone i had to learn my Lesson first. I bought some Turntables that had no Direct Drive so i got really fast really bored with them. I should have listened to my Brother that told me to wait and get Techniks in the first Place. My first Techniks Turntables that i got where from DJ Ace. DJ Ace is a legendary Hip-Hop DJ that is known all around the World. Multiple DMC Mix Champion, Tour DJ for MOP and amazing Producer of legendary Red Bull Breakedance Battle Songs like “Oh that B” or “B-Boy for Life”. I can`t tell you how we got them because i would charge my self with a Criminal Activity so let`s just say i had them and that was anything i was caring about in that Moment. What i didn’t had was real Money for Records. So i convinced my Brother to give me some old ones and he gave me like 6 LP`s. That was my first Set up. I learned really fast so i started to buy Records myself.
I would say around one Year later i had my first Gig at a Private Party. In those Times Soulful House was way more popular then in these Times. So most of the People`s liked my Sound and the Way to Mix. Soon i had my first Gig`s on regular Clubs around Switzerland like the Industry, Bimbotown, Utopia, Katakult, La Luna and so on. I had also Gigs around Europe. For example in Spain, Italy, Germany and France.
Now so much Years later i`m still making Music but in a purer Way as i was doing it back then. I just Spin fro me and for the Thousands of Listeners i have on the different Music Pages that are known in these Times. I just do it for the Music. I always just did it for the Music because it`s that what i love not the business the backstabbing and the hating Persons that are part of the Music since i can think. I am just still in Love with Soulful house Music and i don`t care about Money, Fame or anything else that Peoples think it`s important. The only thing important for me is my Music.
Nowadays i have my Radio shows that are Broadcasted all around the World. From Paris to Buenos Aires and back to Amsterdam. That is my Tour at the Moment and i love it like it is. All about the Music and the Love in it. So enjoy with me the Music because that is the most important thing in Life. Enjoy. Show less
