IF? Records is Sebastian's most recent project, having taken it over from long time techno cohort Andrez Bergen aka Little Nobody, in 2010. IF? Records was established in Melbourne in 1995, has over 130 releases, and a roster that reads like a who's who of the underground in the last 15 years; James Ruskin, Aux 88, Ade Fenton, Si Begg, Dave Angel, Justin Berkovi, K. Alexi Shelby, Steve Stoll, BCR Boys, Justin Robertson, Thomas Heckmann, Jammin’ Unit and Inigo Kennedy, just to name a few.
Previously, Sebastian was best known for the part he played in pioneering techno in Beijing learning his craft as a resident DJ in the city's most infamous clubs, throwing parties on the Great Wall and touring China and Hong Kong. Also well established in his home town of Sydney, Sebastian has played all the best techno parties in last 10 years including Technikal, Beware the Cat, Subservice, Deep as Funk, Lost Baggage and Disconnected.
Sebastian's passion for techno began whilst at university in the UK where he promoted parties and collected vinyl. He has also written many words about electronic music, from feature articles and DJ profiles to gig and music reviews. He was notably editor at 3D World magazine in Sydney during its heyday at the end of the 90s. Sebastian has also worked for Point Blank Music College in the UK and Machine Musik in Australia teaching DJing and music production respectively. And still does the odd tutorial at Machine Musik when time allows. His production career began in 2007 with his debut release, on vinyl, reaching number 7 in the German Club Charts. No one was more surprised than him.
