tra:fo is a drum'n'bass dj
and future producer from germany.
in 1998 he discovered drum&bass and was immediately in love with this great music, which now covers so many different styles and has always been
the most expensive and highest quality music by all the (electronic) music genres.
from 2002 to 2005 he also followed the german (hard-) techno and minimal scene,
which gave him additional influences.
after visiting many different events,
came the decision to play records himself.
it was in 2006, tra:fo returned
"back to his roots" and decided
to become a drum and bass - dj.
from then on, all the money was spend
for vinyls from the good old days 1997 - 2000 to be able to play the greatest dnb classics. labels such as virus, moving shadow, audio couture, frontline, true playaz, v-recordings, renegade hardware, ram records, congo natty, dope dragon, eastside, formation, freeform, tech itch, 31 records, underfire, aspect, bad company, back2basics, biotic, breakbeat culture, congo natty, droppin science, dsci4, emotif, fuze, global thang, hardleaders, juice, live, metalheadz, prototype, splash, talkin loud, urban takeover, test, valve, mampi swift's charge, brockie's undiluted or dread recordings by ray keith...
were on the list!

now expand tra:fo's repertoire.
by the affection for this music
came the desire to produce his
own tracks and contributing a
part to this ever-growing scene.
so tra:fo began in 2011 with the building of his own homerecording studio and the learning of working steps to produce his own drum'n'bass tunes.
till this day he deals with them,
with the aim to produce qualtity music and create his own and timeless sound
that will shape the future of dnb.
in the hope that one day he will be successful with his music and get the chance to travel as known established
dj around the world ....
and help dnb to spread
further in the world! :o)
since 2011 tra:fo is playing sets around the area of hamburg.
