Biography

how he calls himself was born in a giant funpark near the belgian border, his mother called him Gabba and his dad didn´t call again after his birth so Candie had to take care of the hypnotic synthscapes his mother used to love so much in the background of her Palmreading sessions.

Candie spent all his childhood in the admirable place called Worringen where the Birds and Bayer Chemie say good night to eachother and despite the pollution in the neighbourhood business was doing very well so Candie would buy more Oscillators, synthesizers and Noisecontrollers for the now higly sophisticated and stunning live performances.

At the age of 12 Computer electronics like the old Commodore 16 and later on the C64 moved into Candies separé and things started to become very wild back then.

Candie now being able to control a whole Oscillator Orchestra and little Toy music machines with a personal Home computer soon was the sensation in the little village and Candie spent more and more nights at celebrations they had in the towns nearby, sometimes there was a wedding where he played the old evergreens on his Twin tone machines, a funeral or a baptising…

No matter, people loved him and all the attention soon dragged the jealousy of his mother on him. Finally he got kicked out of the fun park because he was too busy thinking his own thoughts and all his mother gave him on his way was a tube of hair gel with the advice to spend it wisely.

Moving from city to city and town to town and learning more about music and entertainment he got involved with Gabba, Breakbeats and Gypsie Polka music of the eastern regions.
