Matthias fell in love with DJing a year or two before COVID. He had been creating content for brands as an influencer for more than a decade, but at some point, he felt a bit of creative burnout. When he attended his first festivals and got introduced to techno, something clicked. He fell in love with the repetitive beats, and it inspired him to try it out himself. Fortunately, his successful influencer career allowed him to invest in a full professional set, and that’s when he essentially started teaching himself how to mix. He felt a sense of creativity he had never experienced before, and it genuinely made him happy playing techno and mixing it.
Now, he’s delving more into production, which is a longer and slower process but incredibly fun to experiment with. DJ’s like Charlotte de Witte, Richie Hawtin, Ida Engberg, Pan Pot were super inspiring for him, and now, artists like Alignment, Kobosil, Julian Muller, and Trym have joined the ranks of his latest inspirations.
