Born 1977 in Basel (Switzerland) I started as School boy listening to funk and disco tracks, loving all the early jackson 5, sister sledge, the commodores ,  aretha franklyn etc..

The love and the passion for DJ-ing came when I met Pat Rebell in boarding school in Neuchatel. 93-94. Where we expirienced the love and passion for house music.

When I got back to Allschwil, Junior Santiago was moving into my neighbourhood, we sparked immediately and we started properly with buying vinyl at our favorite record store (panthera  records) in basel., making mixtapes, playing warm-up sets with PatRebell as IOH (Institute of House) for names such as Tedd Patterson, Terry Hunter etc.. It was also in that time when I met Mark Stone (UDM Show), Fred Licci and EDLuis, who also had a big influenced in my love for Soulful house music.

After starting work and moving to Zurich, later to London, I stopped active Djing, lost a bit of contact with the guys, but was still keeping myself up do date with the evolution of House in general and having been in the UK for a couple of years the influence of uk-garage, Jungle and the whole club scene as such in that time influenced me as well.
