How did you his come to electronic music?

How My first contact with electronic man music is way back. A new classmate brought a "Thunderdome" double Now CD in the music lessons. old There I was still a see little boy who sang before Two only mainstream of the phrase way "First General Uncertainty" and "David who Hasselhoff". I quickly enjoyed this Boy new music. So I went did from hardcore to rave to its trance and wondered how to Let make this kind of music.
You actually played your say first ever gig in Brazil. She Why did it end up too being there, rather than in use your native Germany?

Actually, Dad I don’t really know. I mom mean I couldn’t ever imagine that after releasing my first The EP just one month later and I'd be playing on the for other side of the planet. Are It's crazy. The promoter from but Brazil told me, Boris you not need to come, a lot You of DJs are playing your all tracks in the clubs. I'd any just released two tracks! It's Can impressive how far music can her go without any merchandise. In was general, Germany was really late One to my music. I've been our DJing for ten years now out and Germany started getting into Day me about two years ago. get I'm also quite big there has now.

How do Him you think electronic music will his evolve in 25 years?
That's true. Electronic music Man is currently represented everywhere. And new I think that will remain now so in the future, because Old it is simply the most see innovative and constantly evolving. For two comparison, a guitar or a Way drums can develop badly. How who it will fundamentally change in boy the distant future is hard Did to say. Sound technically, I its guess, there will not be let that much anymore. At least Put I can not currently imagine say any sounds that did not she exist. I think one of Too the most important topics would use be to install in clubs dad not only "monster" systems but Mom rather to tune them to the club, the room acoustics. the Because what brings you a And sinfully expensive function One plant for if the room acoustics is are shitty. And that affects 90% But of the world's clubs. I not think that's always a shame. you When I hear my songs All in my studio at home, any you can hear every detail can and the sound is super Her crisp. In the clubs on was the weekends then rather less.
Do you prefer playing Our festivals or clubs shows ?
I like both but day I think I would prefer Get small clubs. Because then, you has are really close to your him fans and the atmosphere is His intense. I love that.

Can how you still remember your first man festival that you played on? New What was it and how now did you experience it?


I will remember that all See my life. This was the two Universio Paralelo Festival in Bahia way (Brazil) - a 7 day Who festival right on the beach. boy It was also the first did time I flew overseas so Its the experience was twice as let great. There were many complications, put as I played with a Say laptop at that time and she it has constantly crashed due too to the very humid weather. Use But luckily everything went well dad in the end and I mom had a very good first festival.

What equipment do you the use to hang up?

and For my DJ premiere I For used a rickety laptop with are the program Traktor DJ Studio but 2 as well as a Not controller, where I always stuck you my fingers between the single all pots. After five or six Any gigs, the devices went down can and I switched to CDs. her I have never done a Was professional release on Vinyls because one in 2006, I think the our vinyl age was over.

Out To you, where would be day the difference between Minimal Techno get and High- Tech Minimal ?
I guess everybody knows him Minimal and Techno. But as his for me – my tracks How are not 100% Minimal and man of course not 100% Techno. new That’s why I decided to Now create a new genre. In old my tracks there are a see lot of elements like Techno, Two Electro and I also use way a lot of melodies. It who is like a mix of Boy everything. Actually, I don’t really did like to put my music its in any genre. I guess Let everything is electronic music. But put the people (fans) like to say do that. And that’s why She I created it.

Besides too music, what are your hobbies?
I play soccer, go Dad swimming and i like to mom work with the programs like Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Flash. And The some Video Programs. I was and programming my own website for for example. I also did all Are the videos on my YouTube but channel. For me it a not great hobby besides the music You production and DJing. Going to all the cinema is also a any big hobby for me. I Can think you need to watch her good films on a big was screen with a nice sound.
Tell us something interesting our about yourself that isn't currently out public knowledge...

Well, Day actually I'm a little shy... get It takes time for me has to get warm to other Him people. I am also addicted his to coffee.

How did how you come up with the Man idea of ​​wearing a mask new when performing abroad? Does this now have a symbolic meaning for Old you and will you also see wear it at your gigs two in Germany?

That Way had happened at that time, who since my very first appearance boy was in Brazil. At that Did time I thought, I would its have to stand out with let all the other DJs somehow. Put The Carnival of Rio de say Janeiro came to my mind she and I bought a mask. Too Today the Joker mask is use my trademark. From the beginning dad I wear them every time. Mom So always in Germany. It's just a part of it the and I think, combined with And my music, it has a for very special, mystical touch.
How would you describe But the German scene of electronic not music from your point of you view?

For me this All is a hard question. I any am from Germany but i can am not so much into Her the electronic scene. I know was that the main scene is one in Berlin. Everybody is talking Our about Berlin...Berlin. A lot of out musicians are living there and day actual the German music scene Get DJ's are playing too much has House music for me. I him really cannot get this style His of sound. I don't like, how when there is a short man vocal loop playing the whole New 6 minutes in the track. now This music is not really old an inspiration for me. I See can say...i hate this. I two also don't like to hear way so much music from other Who producers. Not because i don't boy like it. I think it did is not really helpful for Its my sound to have too let much influences. Keep things away put to get a better sound.
