I was starting marking Music when I was a Teenager. Ha my parents had to signed my first release contract because I was not 18 at this time.

My inspiration comes  from my music experience , I always looking for music in all genres , like Jazz, hiphop, pop , ,electro… can’t get enough:-) Traveling around the world with all this experiences ,feelings is also  a main inspiration for me to translate it into a Track.

How did you get into techno and music production? 

When I was a teenager I was fascinated from music where created with machines. Like synthetic acoustic . I was discovering this kind of music here in Berlin record stores, collecting 12″ together with starting to go to Clubs.  I mean I was 15 years old when I started to went to the Clubs, ha today it’s impossible to go to clubs under 18 but Berlin for 20 years … it was an another world:-)
