First steps

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 influences

Ibiza have for me big musical influence. I‘ve spend many time on this lovely white island. In 2017 I was booked for the Club Hush in Ibiza in the West End of 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. A short 20min. set mixed by DJ of 69 is part of the show. Allthough they let me in 2018 together with Anna Tur on the decks from Ibiza Global Radio. On these decks were already all the biggest DJs of the world from David Guetta up to the king himself Carl Cox playing and now DJ of 69 :-). I definitely have there everytime a lot of great experiences and met many great people, for example Anna Tur, Jack Eye Jones, Mark Loren, Max Porcelli, Woody van Eyden, La Fleur, Sounom & Dagon, Zonderling, DJ CME, Matthias Tanzmann and many many more.

musical style

My musical style in the 80s was above all what danceable music was in the german TOP 75/100. In the 90s it was mostly Euro-Dance with Dr. Alban, La Bouche, Culture Beat, Snap or Robin S and more. At this time, for the most part, I even played in Pacha in Opladen, an unofficial "DepenDance" of the Pacha that only existed in this time in Ibiza. The famose two cherries, graced everything advertising effective, from the ground of the dancefloor, down to the slipmats on the SL1200s. Pacha Opladen was a small, but very cool club. Everytime in my rekordboxes was Housemusic, which fits more in the real Ibizan Pacha. Preferably Deephouse, the funky & soulful housetracks as well as Chill Out and the classics of the 80s & 90s, and not to forget the beloved Balearic Sound.

producing

For Spinnup Germany, in 2016 I was allowed to produce a remix of the pop oratorio Luther, a musical that tells the story of Martin Luther, by Dieter Falk (a big german producer and juror of the TV Casting Show on Pro7 "Popstars") and in 2017 with a choir of up to 4,000 people tou ring through various large halls in Germany and in October 2017 w as on TV (ZDF). In Dusseldorf I w as then invited to the performance and when the title of 3000 peo ple was sung, in which I have now worked a little bit, I had goose bumps from head to toe. Due to the tight guidelines for the remix, "Die Wahrheit ist ein scharfes Schwert“ (english: The Truth is a Sharp Sword) has become a danceable pop song from the actual ballad, and I would have liked to change more. In January of 2018 my first complete selfproduced single comes out and is available in all shops (Itunes, amazon, beatport and more… & streaming stations like Apple Music, Deezer or Spotify and so on. Also like my single Bubbles, that comes out in June 2018 „Bubbles“.

mixtapes

My mixtapes are all harmoniously mixed. I rekorded them with the DDJ-1000 from Pioneer or the Pioneer XDJ 1000mk2 or CDJ 2000 nx2 on. I prefer to play in clubs or festivals with the CDJs. Most of the time I released them on Beatport and Youtube and in August 2016 I was in first place of the worldwide Beatport TOP 100 DJ Charts and since then I have been there until the end of the service in December 2017 the TOP 20 of the DJ charts. My first number one mix was in August 2016 "Ibiza Summer - Vol. 2 - Chill at the sundowner" in the Beatport Mixcharts. Since then, there have been 16 mixes in the TOP 10, three of them in 1st place. Since end of 2017 they are allready released on mixcloud.com. Best position in 2018 was 7th in the deephouse chart.
