REVIEW

His career as edm DJ started in 1998 in the legendary trance-club 'A2' in the town of Peine (Germany). He was able to let the techno-crowd go crazy on every event while performing with the top of the national and international DJ-stars as there were:

Paul van Dyk, Cosmic Gate, Talla 2XLC, Blanck & Jones, Alex M.O.R.P.H., ATB, Kai Tracid, Marc Spoon, Steve Mason, Ives de Ruyter, Westbam, Marusha, Da Hool, Tomkraft and many more.

It was the time you were able to watch and listen to Claus Backslash on all other main events as for example as the permanent local hero of the 'Reincarnation Rave' in Germany, on 'Radio Sunshine Live' and other well known radio stations.


In the beginning of 2002 Claus Backslash meet the producers of the 'Plasticstudio' of that time:

Tom Porcell 'Funabashi' and later 'Alphazone' & 'Ralph Novell'.

From the first moment on everyone got along with each other so well, that they decided to start some new trance-projects together.

Over the last years up to now further productions, remixes and chart-hits were created for national and international labels Ministry of Sound, EMI, WEA, Universal, Sony Music and many Artists.



AT THE BEGINGING

Claus started in a village disco in the north of Germany in 1990. At this time when funk, soul, rock and other music from the charts were regularly played and a CD-player was not part of the standard equipment of the clubs. But this was not the problem at all because DJ Backslash always was fascinated by the music on vinyl. So a 'rookie' started his first steps into deejaying.

1997 Backslash also began to produce his own music - which first of all was line-house and dance. He tried to arrange songs, to record and remix on an Atari-computer, Yamaha DX 7-synthesizer and an analogue-sampler. But the first results seemed to be a bit doubtful. After some more tries and errors and changing his producer again the first own single: 'Air-Condition' was brought out a year later. He performed it live as 'the newcomer of the week' on the music channel VIVA-TV in Cologne (Germany). This turned out to be a successful entry into the world of music business being in that interactive show featuring the VIVA-Allstars: Backstreet Boys,Touche, Scooter and Alex Christensen (U 96). But after all he still was waiting for a so badly wanted record deal.

1999 Claus Backslash specialised as a DJ even more on electronic music (progressive trance and techno).

From 2002 to 2005 DJ Backslash was working for the Braunschweig radio-station 'Radio Okerwelle 104,6' every week, where he and his DJ-friend had their own edm show 'Deep Space Live'.

Finally in 2002 the second vinyl-release 'Backslash-Rhymes and Rhythms' was brought out on the indie-label 'Pro-Ceed' (Max/Headline), for which the Deggendorf DJ and producer Kaylab a.k.a.Reeloop added another mix to this record.
The official hymn of the Sony Dreamdance 23 'Backslash-Move your Body' was released as a Kosmonova-Mix at the end of 2002.

Over the last years up to now further productions, remixes and chart-hits were created for national and international labels (Ministry of Sound, EMI, WEA, Urban/Zeitgeist/Universal, Sony, Dos Or Die Records) and Artists Groove Coverage - Moonlight Shadow, God is a Girl; Norman Bass - How u like Bass?; Kosmonova - The Daydream; Sha - Vergiss mich.

2006 DJ Backslash and D-Gor produced 'Electronic Body'. A mixture of progrssive house & electro.

In the middle of 2007 the vinyl and the Bee-Low-mix were brought out as well as numerous sampler-editions (Top of the Clubs, House of House) over Diskret/Storm/Kontor Records.
