I have been fascinated with music for a very long time. Some would even say, I am obsessed with music. I played in Rock bands, got turntables at the age of 15 and listened to so many styles that I can confuse almost anybody who thinks he or she knows my taste in music. My music collection includes such different styles as Black Metal, House, Drum&Bass, Jazz, Alternative Rock, HipHop and Swing. Yes, I am a music nerd. 🙂
I live in Cologne with my girlfriend and three cats now, and even though I also have “normal” job now, I have never lost my thirst for new music. Wanting to discover new and exciting music and being a part of the music scene is a strong driver for me.
I have been DJing in clubs since 2003, and I also started doing radio shows at about the same time. Sweet Headache is the result of both of these experiences: I wanted to continue playing DJ sets and distributing them to people all over the world. At the same time, I want to give people some background on what they are listening to.
In doing so, I am reserving the privilege to be strictly subjective. I believe that it is not really possible to talk about music in an objective way. Trying to do so is either doomed for failure or terribly boring.
I hope I can spark at least a little of my music enthusiasm in my readers. And of course, I am happy to be in contact with music nerds all over the world.
