About

Based in the german City of Cologne (Köln) DJ Proton is spinning records since 1995. His style is best described as thrilling, pumping, banging hard Techno, but once you're on the dancefloor music speaks louder than words.

During Protons early years of Techno Jeff Mills was dominating the DJ and Producer polls, so after checking some playlists Detroit soon became a strong influence on the way Proton interpreted Techno and he started to travel around Germany to see DJs like Claude Young, Jay Denham, Juan Atkins, Derrick May or Jeff Mills himself on the rare occasions they played.

Detroit had more to offer. Not only the sound, but also the thoughts and concepts of Mike Banks from Underground Resistance, dealing with topics as independence from Major-Labels and criticism of goverment indoctrination impressed Ex-Punker Proton sustainable and encouraged him to become a DJ himself.

During the time the influences grew:
Dj Rush, Neil Landstrumm, Surgeon, Dave Clarke, Dj Kammy, Ben Sims, Blake Baxter, Cari Lekebusch, Chris Liberator, Miss Djax, ViperXXL, PET Duo, Sandy Warez, Boris S, Robert Natus, Manu Kenton, Jamie Bissmire - just to name a few.

On his way Proton played a lot at underground-partys in abandoned houses, barns and factories and also the Clubs of his hometown Cologne, Germany (Artheater, Bogen2, Sensor Club, Gloria, Gebäude 9, Kunstwerk) as well as at the mighty Butan Club in Wuppertal (Hart aber Herzlich) and the Ambulance Club in Cologne.
Since 2008 he plays his annual gig at Tundra, the biggest baltic electronic music festival, where his curiosity for crowds in foreign countrys awoke. Gigs in Rome (Colocon Circus, EKOrulez), Barcelona (Guerilla Basement), London (Hard Party Production), Vilnius (Blitzkrieg IV), Helsinki (Assembly), Krakow (Forty Kleparz), Sofia (Overload) and Varna (Darkness Falls) followed and there are more to come.

He is a integral part of the Bazzmacho Crew which puts underground back to live in North Germany and since 2011 he is resident at the Berlin based Hardbase events, and regularly drives the Richter magnitude scale in the german capital into the red.

Whoever had the chance to witness him play will already know that his enormous musical background knowledge and international experience of the last years melt into a punchy und stylistically exciting result that is sure to rock every crowd.
