Biography

Rico Henschel was born in Berlin in 1980 and at the end of this eventful first decade of his existence his hometown was infested by a musical revolution - the first Loveparade. Infected by this event he bought his first 12” records at the tender age of 13 and dabbled in being a DJ at the old gramophone of his parents.

So Rico started working after school, to afford two DJ-Turntables and with it the needed vinyl. Initially he played for friends on parties he organized on his own in cellars and garages, which was soon followed by gigs in bars and on small events.

But why only buy and play records, when you can also make them yourself? So the logical consequence for him was to produce music on his own. Early driven by own ideas, it´s was the lack of knowledge and technical possibilities that prevented these to be put into action.

The solution quickly has been found with “Fast-Tracker”. A program which offered the basic functions needed to challenge himself as a producer. The first hardware instruments followed, but they got almost completely displaced, thanks to a rapidly proceeding development of computers and software.

As every artist is equipped with a certain curiosity regarding to possible reactions of his environment to his own work, Rico introduced some of his early works to his closer circle of friends. Those encouraged him to keep on going and soon he decided to send some first demos to labels.
