Markus Wanzke aka wänz* was born in 1973 in north of germany, since 1994 he lives in Offenbach. He had already in his earliest childhood ambitions to electronic music. Kraftwerk, Klaus Schulze, Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode and other synthesizer-heroes were from the beginning of his childhood his favorites, while his friends knew inspire more chart-oriented music. At the end of the 80s, as he discovered Anne Clark, Nizzer Ebb and Front 242, it was happening all around him!
As early as 15/16 year old boy, he turns the first time on the turntables to various youth centers in his area bringing with good, electronic music to rock the young crowd. After a visit in 1990 in club Omen, based in Frankfurt, his course was then made completely! Every weekend the nightlife of Frankfurt was rendered unsafe, Omen, Music Hall, XS and over again… 2 years later, the now 18-year-old wänz* handed no longer the sole party, and he began to organize first own parties in his home area, around Darmstadt. In 1994 he started producing his own tracks, te Artist Project wänz* was born. In 1996 he signed with the frankfurt record label “FRANKFURT BEATS” his first contract, simultaneously began there as a DJ promoter to work, and later partly as A & R manager, and in sales! In 1998 he moved to the frankfurt record company BEV Music AG, where he was employed as a product manager, and sales manager.There he started his own label “Ewige Blumenkraft Rec.” in 1998 with the first 3 releases. In the year 2000 he moved to the Meet-Music AG, one of the first online MP3 portals for unknown producers of his time, where he took over the complete management, as well as its promotion and thus became an integral part of the scene. More releases and bookings followed…
Over 20 years of DJ and producer experience can wänz* look back now, he knows the scene and the taste of the crowd like no other and with this knowledge every time he manages to put the celebrating crowd in ecstasy!
