Hi Julian, about your question: yes! i’m one of the parov stelar band tour dj’s together with alexej ryba. It’s a very great pleasure to support the incredible band on there concerts. it is not only a very powerfull concert where i’m playing the warm up or the after show it’s an awseome time together with each from the band starting at the beginning – tourbus check in – to the end – tourbus check out – and the time in between the concerts.
i’m loving the band all together. they are stars on the floor but best friends behind. it’s a great big family!
we played a few times together in the past and this year parov ask me: “do you like playing on our greek tour next week?”
äh … what? what’s going on? can anybody wake me up? i thought it’s an amazing dream *g
took a big breath and said: YES!
in 1994 i began to play as a DJ in little club in my hometown. two years after i changed the venue and playing all genres from rock to funk for the amazing people in the best club in our area. it was a great time for about 10 years.
after the 10 years – my little daughter was born – i said: OK, it’s time to be a little bit quieter and use your tracks for private listening only.
But harry and marcus (parov stelar) brought me back to the turntables step by step. so i found my sound again and i’m very happy to know parov stelar and his band and all my friends.
Now i’m bigger in this business than before. as an DJ or in a DJ set with an awesome drummer or an incredible keyboarder.
thx marcus, thx harry and all who listen our tracks! this is a short description to become a parov tour dj :-D
Why i’m playing Electro Swing ?
That’s easy! or? i’m loving the real handmade emotional music from the past with his incredible big band sounds and funky part’s. I’m loving jazz and listen freejazz. and thats the way to bring back the fantastic sounds on the dancefloor. it’s the fantastic mix between real pure music and the electronical incridients to cook an excellence soundmeal for the whole people.
it can be a slow track or a faster track but it’s always a happyness in each swing or jazz song! i’m loving it!
You will get my bio and the rest in a mail tomorrow after the refresh. hope thats ok for you?
thx and all the best

I will take time to reply longer later next week but as said earlier, your mix is wonderfull and very inspring ! Just what I needed before these two parties I will at on thursday & friday : )
