Who is Vegetative Wachstumsphase?
Who is behind the label "Vegetative Growth Phase"?
His name is Christian Anthony Hostettler, born August 25, 1981, and raised in a rural, pre-alpine area in the South-West of Bern, Switzerland. He is a talented and adept DJ and Producer, and he loves to dance to grooving and uplifting music.
His great sense for rhythm and movement must have been instilled into his soul even before his birth. Apparently he already danced within the tummy of his mother whose passion for dancing surely transmitted the virus. Born into a musical environment, Christian hears his Dad playing guitars and Swiss accordeon, and his Mom singing jazz ballads, blues and gospel. He shares their enthusiasm for percussive instruments, and to promote his talent starts to play the drums.
In search for the freedom to express himself and fascinated by the possibility to create and mix his own music, he places just one item on his whish-list for his 12th birthday: a set of turntables. That changes everything. Christian devotes a lot of time experimenting with his remarkable collection of vinyls and making the house shake in its grounds. He is riding the Trance wave which surges back in 1993 and steadily improves his technique. On the threshold to the new Millenium, he experiences many new styles and different beats. However, it is the Techno floors that attract him most. Christian draws much inspiration from sets like from Sven Väth or Carl Cox, and he continues to buy Techno vinyls adding beats of Tech House and Deephouse. His love for the always-danceable Afro and Latin rhythms, including Samba, enhances his compositions with an infectuous spirit.
Even in times when educational priorities leave little space for DJ-ing, he never gives up sounding. His perseverance causes him to be where he is today, and he feels far from resting. Quite on the contrary, Christian is ready to go public and demonstrate to the dancing community the power of Techhouse and Techno. With his ability to sound both melodically creative and potentially explosive, he endeavors to promote inner freedom and joy for living.
In his other life, Christian is owner-manager of a business and store for Green Technologies and gardening systems and accessories centrally located in the Bern region of Switzerland. Being endowedwith a "green thumb" flair, it occurs to him that the expression "Vegetative Growth Phase" symbolizes perfectly the meaning of his music. VGP is the period during which a plant grows, develops and takes on a form to finally blossom in unequalled splendour. In Christian's experience the human beings find themselves eternally in the growth phase. And he considers mankind to be the keepers of Mother Nature. "It is our responsibility to preserve her from being exploited and destroyed. When Mother Nature is no more, there will never be another vegetative growth period."
It is toward the end of 2010, his official label name is born. May "Vegetative Wachstumsphase" and the love to dance contribute to the growth in human consciousness.
