In 1987 Michael Hackl alias DJ Boost made his debut as a dj in Central Switzerland. Around the district you could enjoy him at various parties and in different clubs. At that time he already played the hardly known hip house and club sound.
In 1993 the first techno party in the area of Lucerne took place. DJ Boost was smartly promoting it with a live set and an interview to Marek (Mr. Streetparade) on radio Lora. He then showed up on the Lovemobile of the dj collective "Texa & CO”, which he had co-founded. Bookings in Zurich clubs like the "2. Akt” and the "Up Space” followed. As a result, DJ Boost became one of the most popular disk jockeys in the heart of Switzerland.
In 1996 he gave his debut abroad gig in Como. As a matter of fact, he had been booked for in-clubs like "Ruby”, "Kanzlei” and "Supermarket”. It was time now to settle down in Zurich. For promoting and success reasons, you guess. With a new flat and a new job as a vinyl seller, he finally got his desired reputation.
He became resident at "Valentino’s Paradise”, at "Zoo club” and did also semi-legal parties at "Katakomben”. Bookings at "Supermarket”, "Pravda” and "Matrix” followed. And then, he first made his journey to Germany for rocking a club.
