Biography (german above)
Anja Dickmann, born 1968 in Stuttgart! Rolling Stones, The Commodores, Janis Joplin, Roxy Music, Hot Chocolate, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bob Seeger, Mink DeVille, James Brown, Bee Gees, were the artists that shaped my childhood. Love from the first note and unbroken until today was the encounter with electronic music. KRAFTWERK appeared in the ZDF Hitparade. „We are the robots“. That was different, completely different, not better and not worse.
BUT new, futuristic, electrifying, ELECTRONIC! My passion for electronic music was ignited and the constant search for the best and newest tracks – at that time still exclusively on vinyl and cassette – had begun and is still unbroken today. As the first Stuttgart bouncer at the legendary Club Oz, I had close contact to the techno scene and local Dj’s like Chris Maico Schmidt aka Mike S., Marco Zaffarano, Roody, Commander Tom, Harry Nash, Peter Pan, and many more, but also to international artists like Laurent Garnier.
The courage to turn the turntables myself and to go public with it I had only very late. But when the decision was made, thanks to great support and introduction to the basics, I came largely as an autodidact to the point where I am today. My journey as a DJ has just begun for me, the development possibilities upwards are limitless and I am happy about every progress and look forward with excitement to everything that is yet to come.
