Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Born 1978 in Siegen, Germany, i was in touch with music every since. My first, and main influences in Hip Hop, as I can remember, were the Beastie Boys, House of Pain and Onyx.
What made me love these beats and lyrics so much, was in general the groove with it´s warm bass and crispy snares, combined with all that deepness in sampling and poetry. I had a very good record dealer in Siegen called Headz / Kratzer (R.I.P. Reimund) and so could bought many dope shit until 2000. I went to Wuppertal and visit a sound engineering school till 2002. I had, and still have good mixing and little turntablism skills, but focused on producing since 2001. I´m still very sad about having solt my record collection when i was mentally sick, but thank god: there´s serato. Some classics i bought back, too. Right now I´m happy about all these fresh new releases from german based producers and mcees, and i´m very proud to be a small part of this new and heavy movement.
