Blegny - Liege
Since my birth, music takes a real big place in my life. I've grown up with O.M.D, New Order, Queen, Meat Loaf,... At the age of 8, I've started to have music lessons and began Piano lesson at 9 until 19. My mistake was that I didn't want to go further and become a professionnal. At the same time I was learning trumpet and guitar, but just for pleasure...
My passion for "electronic" music started at the age of 14. Me and my cousin were listening dance, house, trance and hardcore too. It's after perhaps 2 or 3 years that we've wanted to hear some real good stuff... So by his experience of parties in La Chapelle (with D-Jack, Popane), techno became more influent for us...
"Damn! I want to do like them." And I've bought my first record techno record which was an second hand of DJ Slip... In 1998, my cousin bought decks and each week-end we tried to improve in mixing. What a fun! Some months later, we weren't alone, some friends reach the group and we've all decided to form "OSM.3".
My first experience in public was at the first City Parade in Liège in June 2001 where we've get our own stage. Yeahhh! This was the true revelation. Nearly 1000 clubbers who became mad during our sets. Some kick ass energy, woaw...It was the beginning of our own parties in Liège, in Fléron and in 2003 til now our own Mini Open Air Event called: MAGNEERADE.
Early influenced by Dave Clarke, Ben Sims, my style was changing in the years 2000 to become more electro-techno as Sven Väth, Dj Hell, Johannes Heil... And nowadays I turned into more minimalistic techno - I don't really love the word "Minimal" because it stills techno -, sometimes more melodic, sometimes more tech-house and sometimes more dark...
After some months of thinking about it, I've decided to change my record bag and record stock for a laptop. I've bought Serato Scratch Live in march 2006. One word: That's great. I still have all my records but with a program like Serato you've got the possibility to play tracks of great artists who aren't yet on a label... So, feel free to send me your production, I'm always looking for new good stuff.
