Biography

Dachshund was born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland. He got his first introduction to music in the 90’s, playing guitar in Reggae bands. That was the beginning of his long lasting love story with dub music. Among other bands, his collaboration with The Restless Mashaits lead him to Downtown Kingston Jamaica in 1995, where he mixed instrumentals recorded in Switzerland on 2 inch tapes with Jamaican musicians recorded onsite. Jamaica was a revelation to Dachshund.

There, he witnessed the work of Jamaican sound engineers who were transforming reggae mixes into Dub tracks full of incredible sound effects. Dub is undoubtedly Dachshund’s first musical influence and inspiration. He produced his own Dub music in the following years, at the same time learning about every piece of studio equipment. This part of his musical experience can still be heard today in such productions as “+ 91 ahead” (Plak records) or “V2E” (Sthlmaudio records). With his roots in Dub music, Dachshund first experimented with electronic music in 1997, producing his own jungle and Drum’n’Bass tracks.

This new orientation got him involved in DJing and organizing the first Drum’n’Bass parties in his hometown. In order to play his own music during DJ sets – CDs not being available at that time - he cut his own productions on vinyl (dub plates) at Music House in London. It’s through these new styles of music that Dachshund developed his knowledge of hardware machines. Naturally, his interest soon turned towards DJing and producing club music.
