Born in Munich, Calvin Bosco is not a new face in Germanys growing scene of electronic DJs.

With his move to Berlin in 1997, it didn't take long before he became one of Germany's Elite behind the decks. Playing at some of Europe's top addresses for House Music like the 90° or WMF as well as underground-hotspots like the Cookies or Sternradio makes him one of Germanys Breakthrough Artists in his scene. Together with DJs like Alan Sommerville, Sebastian Krieg or Phonique, he is responsible for some of the most memorable Parties in the german capitol.
In the beginning of the new millennium, Calvin Bosco finally became the host of his own weekly radio show on the famous pirate station „Twen FM“. Not only is this a huge boost to his confidence, but also it opens the door to residencies at the 40 seconds, Sage Club, Q-Hotel Berlin or his own underground partylabel „stylomat“.

His energetic performances meanwhile brought him to Switzerland, Austria, France and also to Romania, Greece, Russia or Playa del Carmen in Mexico.
In 2008, his groovy oldschool remix for „Wait 4 U“, originally produced by New York’s House legend Lenny Fontana (Powerhouse), brought him international attention and was released over Ministry of Sound Germany / Caus-N-Effect.
The record was licensed to Italy and the UK (Ministry of Sound UK) and was the last step stone on his way to become one of Germanys new talents when it comes to producing.
2009 was the year to bring his career to another level! With the song „The Chase“ together with his producing partner Chris Bekker, he brought the same titled Giorgio Moroder theme (Academy Award winning soundtrack from the movie „Midnight Express“) back to life.
The song was already played, amongst others, by DJ legends like Junior Sanchez (Miami), while some of worlds most popular DJs like Lenny Fontana, Todd Terry and D.O.N.S.

All new remixes were released in the summer of 2009 in a cooperation of Raboisen Records and Caus-N-ff-ct and reached the top ten in several Dance Charts all over Europe in 2009 (DDC # 5, Ibiza Club Charts # 5, Swiss DJ-Charts # 7).
