Out of the "ZODIAC" and "Humanbeing" artists like Tangerinedream, Klaus Schulze, Cluster, Kraftwerk and many more has evolved. For Emanuel it was just a question of time until he would start making music. At the age of nine he got his first computer "Commodore 64" and his exploration into the digital world started. He was very interested in electronic music and machines.
And his biggest pleasure was to check the possibilities. Four years later he bought his first synthesizer "Roland D-10" and connected it via MIDI to his new computer "Amiga500". And made his first experiences with Midi, Sampling and Sequencing. He connected all sound sources to a eight track mixer and started experimenting with sound influenced by a movie called "Beat Street". 1993: After he finished school, he went for a six month trip around India with some mix tapes in his bag.
In India he experienced his first Techno party and he knew what he want to do - making people dance! And he made his first steps as a DJ, he started by chance at a Open air in Bombay organized by some friends. The DJ was so awful that they asked him to play his mix tapes and he played 12 hours in front of 700 Indian party people. And after that promoters ask him to play at parties in Goa, Bombay (Mumbai) and Pune. He rocked the parties with his mix tapes which he made at home.
He did not know what a DJ is doing but the crowd in India liked his music and DJ´s from around the world told him to continue. Now it was to late he had been infected with the DJ virus..... 1994: As he went back to Germany, he bought two Technics turntable's, a mixer and his first vinyl. He started to spin records at a local club in Dortmund, called "Orpheum". Soon he got a residency at this club, so every week he did the warm up for DJs like DAG, Marco Zafferano, Carl Cox, Mario DE Bellis, Michael Gruman and many more.
It was a really exciting time watching that guys and to learn from them. Soon he played at other local clubs like Subground, Ruhr Rockhallen. 1995: he moved to Berlin. Currently he played at Trance and Acid party's in and around Berlin, Amsterdam (Holland)@"Trance Buddha Club" and in Antwerp (Belgium)@"Pacific Club". 1996: Inspired by Berlin Underground Party's he changed his style of music from Psychedelic Trance to Techno and TecHouse. That was the right decision.
He plays at clubs like Tresor, Casino, Maria Am Ostbahnhof, 103, SO36, Pfefferbank, Tacheles, Insel der Jugend, NonTox, Connection, Sternradio, Bastard, Supermolly, Glaswerk, Factorey, Subversiv, Cassiopeia, Hangar, Ministerium für Entspannung, ShizzoTempel, RAW and many more..... He works together with promoters like Pyonen, Neurocomic, Kombinat23 and others. 1997: After some years of Djing and Party he remembered his old synthesizer and computer and his interest to know how this music is made grew ! And he wants to know if he was able to create his own Sound. He hooked up a Atari mega ST with "Cubase" connected his "Roland D-10" bought a drum machine (Roland R-7) some Effects (Boss SE-50, Alesis Midiverb4) and a studio mixer (mackie 1604).
The quest had begun he started searching for his own path, to create electronic dance music...... 2000: He thought he wants to know more and reach to the core of music production technics. He decided to go to the "SAE" college (School of Audio Engineering) to learn more about music production and technical stuff. After two years of studies, he finished the "SAE".
Meanwhile his Atari had become an apple G4 and Cubase changed to Logic Audio. The load of information about Electronics, Studios, Equipment and production technics where spinning around his head. Everything was numbers, physics or defined by rules. He had to free his mind and convert the knowledge for his own purpose and use.........
2004: He had so many tracks together people told him "you have to play live". So he started to get into "Ableton Live" to be able to perform his own music. 2005: On his 30th birthday he played his first live act. The reaction and feedback were positive, since then he keeps improving and developing his music, style and live performances.
And it goes on and on - discovering the universe of sound, new techniques new spaces driving the machines. Manipulating the flow of electrons, creating vibrating air molecules which stimulate the eardrum and make the body move. And until now his biggest pleasure is to see people dance and enjoying themselves, relaxing their mind ..!!! Read more on Last.fm.
