Dompteur Mooner is doing parties since about 1993. When he started working with DJ Hell in 1998, designing his „Munich Machine“ Tour, Hell heard the music he and Splank as Zombie Nation did.
The rest is history - Zombie Nations „Kernkraft 400“ became a Top Ten hit in many european countries.
It stayed No.2 in the UK for six weeks.
But Mooners background was not mainstream at all.
In 1999 he co-founded an uncommercial project that happened at an illegal location beneath the city of Munich in an abandoned underground water powerplant.
It was a wild style club that was an art project at the same time. Together with Art-School friends Benjamin Bergmann and Catriona Shaw (Queen of Japan), they organised nights as 'Club le Bomb'.
Also Hart of Noise (with Generation Aldi-man Bülent Kullukcu) was a cutting edge project between Art, Music and Pranksterism, an irony of the big names in the Techno-Biz. The project climaxed in a liveshow at a Cocoon party where about 500 Kilo of food and electronic trash were thrown into the audience.
Zombocombo, with Polly Ester (of Kamerakino), Kaput and KITT Bang is the current occupation and longtime project. They organise monthly events at Munich..s club „Registratur“, where they throw parties with music, dresses and shows that go along with crazy themes such as „Medical Congress“, „Tales of Voodoo“ or „Space Gay Cowboys“.
His label, Erkrankung (since 2000), features debut works of artists such as Steril, Hong Kong Counterfeit, Queen of Japan, The Magnificents, Mix Mup, Vostok, Nicolas Courtin, Auto, Acid Boy Chair, as well as projects like the Sid-Musique, a compilation of international artists working with sounds of antique computers like the Commodore C-64. Many of these records had been setting new genres; mostly years ahead of the time they went „hype“-like Commodore sounds, Elektro-Punk, „Elektroclash“, or the Acid-revival.
For his 2007 compilations „Elaste: Slow Motion Disco“ on Compost, Mooner researched the italian Cosmic scene for 2 years. He searched for the Djs from back in the days and interviewed them, and chased for these balearic vinyl rarities.
Mooner and his wife Pollyester just established a new label called Love in C Minor: A countdown label with limited editions that expires after 10 releases. The music will made in-house by Pollyester and Remixes of friends such as Ben Mono and others.
Mooners sound is influenced by obscure B-sides of Italodisco, trashy House, Elektro, Acid, Rock, Punk-Funk, Krautrock and the wildstyle mixing of Club le Bomb. He experienced the widespread interest of music by 70s north-italian Cosmic Music scene at the age of 15. Mooner..s further influences on his unique DJ mixing style relate to his Moms psychedelic record selection. Also he was one of the first DJs to buy an iPod for pro use, filled with obscure B-sides and demo versions.
