Biography

Andy Prinz love for Electronic Music was born in the 1980s. Fascinated by new developments and innovations in synthesizer and sampler technologies and bands such as Depeche Mode, Andy soon also desired to make his mark in the electronic field. His musical talent already began while he took his first lessons in classical piano and on a simple keyboard when he began to create his own first melodies. Andy bought himself his first synthesizer on sale at a store in Zurich and two years later his first mono-sampler. Computer based music was still at its early stages during this period and studio equipment remained still too expensive to buy for newcomers. Along with two friends from the EBM (Electronic Body Music) scene Andy formed the synthpop-combo DELAY in the summer of 1991. With the help of a 286 PC and a cheap sequencer software the three young men were able to produce their first demo tape named Under The Bridge within 3 months. Soon afterward DELAY had its first live-gig as a supporting act of the then very successful THE YOUNG GODS (hit: “Skinflowers”).

In the spring of 1992 DELAY presented Pep Pill as a limited 15 track demo CD, which sold around 500 units. As a result of Pep Pill the band had its first record contract with the German label OFF BEAT paving the way for more future releases. The CD-EP Working In The Factory advanced to be an underground hit in the EBM and Dark Wave clubs, and Underdogs the 1994 DELAY album gained resonance in the entire pan-european EBM / Darkwave scene.
