The roots of Store N Forward go back to the year 1998 when two young men from Hamburg, Germany got to know each other by chance. Interning in the same firm and sharing the interest of the "new" electronic sound, trance, Thomas Boldt and Christian Steinweg became friends quickly. Store N Forward was finally founded in 2001. As the years have gone by, not only has their studio developed, but also the quality and sound of their music.
In early 2004 Store N Forward tried their luck in a remix contest of the new single 'OceanLab - Satellite' (Anjunabeats / Above & Beyond) and was placed in the top 10. In the final judging they received third place and, consequently, had a huge response to their first MP3 release: the Boldt & Steinweg Remix. Their first production is a track called 'Blind Straight', which was released in November 2004 with remixes from Marco Torrance and their own (under their 'Boldt & Steinweg' alias), from the 'FlowMotion Recordings' label.
Thomas and Christian, after receiving a lot of requests for remixes in 2005, realized that there had to be more time devoted to their music and to Store N Forward! Germany's most distinguished electronic music magazine Raveline writes: "If only such newcomers like Store N Forward would spring up like mushrooms, our trance-scene would thrive and prosper like nobody could imagine!"
With their second single release '4 Seasons in One Day', it seems Store N Forward were able to make their final “breakthrough”. The trance song with vocals by trance artist / enthusiast and friend of theirs, Jan Mühlenbrock aka Mil Brokes, was released in November 2006 on one of the top 3 trance labels Afterglow Records, along with remixes from Sean Tyas and Cressida. The vinyl also included another track of their's titled 'Sphagetti'. '4 Seasons in One Day' and their third single 'Why Don't We Talk About It' (released in 2007 with a remix by 'Hawk' from the 'Afterglow Deep' label) got support by the big ones like Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Menno de Jong, Mike Shiver and Tillmann Uhrmacher, to name a few. Their fourth single 'Honeymoon' was released in February 2008 from Afterglow Records with remixes by Funabashi and Mike Shiver. Thomas & Chris are working right now on several remixes and collaborations, on a biweekly 2hours XM Satellite Radio Show (Channel 82), on a monthly Di.FM radio show and they are about to raise their national and international reputation, also supported by a couple of DJ-gigs.
