a young boy back in east germany he could never have dreamed of a life getting around in his own private plane but his passion for music has been with him from the start. music up to. music always meant a lot to me maybe it's because i grew up with down radio in the g.d.r. but i always listen to west berlin radio and for me it was the only connection to the outside world wonders for me so the i'm singing for britain so i was in byrds my b.-l. e. nineteen is shortly after jim and reunification and the techno club pulled vandyke finds his vocation electronic music. stings on professionally because i'm a d.j. because i love music and because i'm a total freak and a total fanatic when it comes to this kind of music good then becomes the center of the techno movement called bundling delivers the soundtrack to major events such as the love of her age. he starts producing his same tracks with
success his single tell me one reaches number seven in the british charts. one of his albums is nominated for a grammy. hold on to like then sets up his own record label bondage records and presents radio shows in germany and you think usa. but in spite of selling five million albums from twenty thirty none of his singles make it to the challenge. was. what was different about electronic music or the whole scene was that although it was a scene where people worked professionally there wasn't actually an industry. as in
the meantime it is an industry what you see in the top forty charts now for instance are all products of the music industry most people looked. like continue traveling the globe to perform its d.j. sets not you but in every twenty think scene things changed dramatically. at a festival in the netherlands he fell off the stage a six metre drop. shot and maybe it was getting in various places and i have to say i was really really lucky there was a specialist in the logical clinic about ten minutes away from the venue. and if it hadn't been traced near the university medical center say in amsterdam i wouldn't be sitting here today the damage to my brain would have been so serious that i might not have made it worse you could be in the station so i think it's. a question i couldn't speak to you as i had to learn basic things again from scratch. without the strength of my wife by my side without margarita but i
wouldn't write it off if she hadn't been there as my reason to live i would have given up and had to. have the drama. was soon back in his studio and just a few months off to be an accident he was back on stage. just gets. there wasn't like my d.j. sets were part of a therapy plan or something not at all. but it was really important for me to have this goal to set myself a deadline like by that day i want to be back on stage and start. now his in his late forty's just as much as ever. the secret to his ongoing success. garnered about women i think one of the reasons i'm still on the
