Music is what makes me move. Since early youth I was searching and collecting music. 1980s I started to share my selection as Club DJ in a small club called Lightfire in Winterthur. 2 years alter I was hired by a big event agency to spin all over Switzerland. In the late 80's I was asked to work as host and music program director for regional radio stations.
Music might change the way you experience a place or community. Perfect selected tunes are the key to move peoples feets and hearts.
Creating music programms, soundtracks and concepts for brandradio.ch, a service for branded music. I give brands a individual sound by creating the perfect playlists for them.
In the 90s I worked as music director for local radio stations (Radio One, RTGplus, etc.) and interviewed swiss and international musicians at my weekly radio show.
I share my music since the 80s. I started in a small urban club in my hometown Winterthur, called Lightfire. Here the fire to share my music selection with the crowd, to make them dance, has been enlighted.
After some years I joined the team of the famous Habegger event agency and mobile discotheque Hurricane. I was touring through Switzerland, spinning in different locations, clubs and halls for audiences from a couple hundred to more than 4'000 a night.
After a (family) break of some years I restarted djing as DJ Lexx(CH). 2007 I started the global dj community Scoutlounge.net. Scoutlounge is based on a club built in the virtual world of seconlife.com. What started small became BIG within no time. At peaktime over 120 djs were playing live 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. Scoutlounge peaked at 500'000 listeners on the webradio per month. Check out: http://www.scoutlounge.net.
Since 2013 I am part of PEP Events Agency creating events who integrates urban lifestyle, art and music to a new experience.
I don't care for technology. I use it. In the 80s I worked on my skills of syncing beats with turntables. During the 90s the CD players mixing has changed a lot in handling and technics. After the millenium the digital dj tools on computers and laptops opended a complete new dimension of creating electronic music live.
I am used to spin live on:
- Pioneer CDJ cd players or
- Technics SL1200Mk2 turntables
for special occasions I use Native Instruments Traktor Pro digital mixing software and devices as well - to create, loop and arrange live.
