Some facts about “Colt!”:
I was born in 1976 in the GDR (German Democratic Republic).
I started to make music in 1999. I liked to go to party, dance all night long…….and I was interested in “the other side of the floor”. At first I thought “I must be a DJ”. After a short time I knew that I must produce my own style and I must perform this as a live act!
I had my first gigs at my own parties to learn how to handle the crowd. It then grew step by step and I was soon getting gigs with musicians from all over world such as: Matthias Kaden, Chris Liebing, Marks Kavka, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Reboot, Das Krause Duo, Alex Smoke, Claude van Stroke, along with my live set on the 2nd Sunday of each month on www.undergroundhouse.tv.
I have released my sounds on different labels including Elster-Records, Traxacid Italy, Daso Records, Eve Und Shack Lmited.
Sometimes I work together with other musicians who play trumpet, drums, bassguitar, and didgeridoo… or with Andre Kurz and his “Traktor” on 4 decks!
My equipment is a MacBook, a Novation SLMk2 controller and a Tascam UC-144 soundcard.
Undergroundhouse.tv show times: Airs the 2nd Saturday of each month ~ 9-11am PST/11am-1pm CST/12-2pm EST/5-7pm UK/6-8pm CET
