￼born a west-berliner, cle had his first dj residency in autumn1989 at "fischlabor" bar, the small older sister of the famous "tresor" club, where he presented a blend of dub,rare grooves, lover ́s rock, hip hop and electronica every wednesday.
shortly after "tresor" opened it ́s gates at potsdamer platz he ( and his dj mate terri belle ) took over the upper "globus" floor on saturdays, playing quite the same kind of musical mix, adding some hours of underground house music towards the end of each night.
1991 cle got involved with the "planet" crew, who encouraged him to play at their illegal warehouse raves, which lead to a residency at the legendary "e-werk" club from 1993 - 1997. during this time he also worked behind the desk at the unforgettable "new noise" record store. and started hosting his first "own" night - kaspar ́s camp at the ( later "society" club ) " 90° "
also he played a lot of parties in the area like f.e. all the various locations of the "wmf" club ( " big sexyland! " ) or the well remembered "bonito house" fiestas at "tresor".
1998 he and his partner Mike Vamp founded the highly successful electronic/pop/house/ambient project " Maertini Broes" ( still around and kicking today...) and the obscure new wave / electro combo " artist unknown. alltogether they released 6 albums and countless 12"es and remixes by now. at the same time ( also until today ) he started releasing first tracks together with his long time friend Steve Bug on his label "poker flat recordings".
also around those days cle decided to establish a new party series called "cle fc" focussing strictly on deep house at the "discount club" which later would be the "casino", but, after a short intermezzo at "pfefferbank" under the same title, due to the fact of growing worldwide interest in live / dj shows, there was not time enough to continue these projects.
but still ( until today ) he loved playing in berlin the most, so regular shows in berlin ́s best clubs like "panoramabar", "cookies", "weekend", "watergate" and numerous off-parties were ( and are ) a must.
2002 he alongside Terri Belle and Daniel W. Best feat. Dixon founded the collective " washing machine " throwing old school house jams once or twice a year to entertain an ever growing crowd until today.
after a 2 year break from the "game" and running a nice little cocktail bar in berlin-mitte, cle decided to join in again in january 2011 with a new maertini broes album titled "moved by mountains". 2015 a 3 track maertini broes ep "music, nightlife, exciting" was released, as was a new artist unknown 12".
cle also formed a new vinyl only label "apes go bananas" with steve bug with two 3 track EP releases in 2015/16
already in 2014 he teamed up with berlin dj eva be to produce and dj under the name LoYoTo. they released their first EP "looking at the starz" on "upon you recordings" (2015) followed by their "lonely young tourist" 12" for "watergate records"
since 2006 cle is a resident dj for the very well recieved " yellow lounge" event series in berlin and internationally ( salzburg, amsterdam, london... ) which presents classical music in an urban nightclub context to reach an audience for the classical music genre beyond the "usual" concerthalls. from october 2013 on he stepped up to be part of the yellow lounge promoter team and hosting the dj / club side of this unique project.
