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 have for me big musical influence. I‘ve spend many time on this lovely white island. In 2017 I played at the Club Hush in Ibiza based in Sant Antoni and was in 2017 & 2018 part of the Ibiza Radio Show on Wideline Radio and Sky Radio, which is broadcast live from the Mambo Studio Ibiza, directly above the world famous Cafe Mambo. In 2019 I played poolside sessions at Destino Pacha Resort Ibiza, PlayaSol Mare Nostrum, New Algarbe & Jabeque. Since 2019 Ibiza Global Radio is broadcasting some of my sets 3-4 times a year. TheOne Marbella , The One Ibiza, Beach Radio (London) and Evosonic Radio (Berlin) are broadcasting my weekly slow, smooth & deep LIVE Sets of „AbSoulute Beach“.
