1992/1993 - first steps to bring some noises together with my Amiga, I didn't know what a 4/4 beat means and so it sounded
1994 - someone explained me how to make music with the rigth beat and so i composed my first Hardcore-Technotracks
1995 - on 18th Nov 95 I put on records for the first time in a club at school. My name was DJ Freddy. I played a couple of my own tracks. Some guys liked it, wow.
1996 - I bought the TECHNOSOUNDturbo-AmigaStereo Sampling Catridge. The first thing I sampled was the voice of Babylon Zoo in the Song "Spaceman".
I made a lot of new tracks. They became better and better, at first alone, later with a friend called Christian. I gave him the name "Bassthard".
We put on records in a youthclub for a few times. We took our Amigas and played our own tracks, too.
Here you can see some flyers from that time (just click on the pics)
1997 - I started writing own lyrics and arranged them into my tracks.
1998 - The music production stopped 'cause of my job and girlfriend.
2001 - The seperation from my girlfriend made me writing lyrics and composing again.
Now, the Amiga is old so I've bought some new equipment. And so I make new stuff.
