It's 1995 in Dusseldorf' Jan's hometown and he's consumed by the Music of Labels like M-Plant, Relief, Sound Signature, Planet E or Phono.
His first steps to present his record selection not only to his lovely dog at home, Jan owes to a very good friend who holds a residency at one of the best underground clubs for electronic music. An old wine cellar located in Wuppertal near Dusseldorf. Here he had the pleasure to play along site artists who inspired him since the early nineties. In short - this is the precise starting point of a never-ending story fuelled by love for the music.
In 1996 Jan started to work for a record store and focused on hosting his own parties starring international guests like Daniel Bell, Matthew Herbert, Ata or Steve Bug. Around the same time he also meets the young and promising producer Daze Maxim. Both clicked right away and found out that they have a quit similar interest in electronic music. Both decided to start some excursions in Maxim's backroom studio to produce deep and minimal house tracks which were finally released on Matthias Tanzmann's Moon Harbour Recordings in 2001.
Three years later Jan determined after sleepless nights to move away from Dusseldorf and all his friends in order to open a new chapter in Hamburg. Because of his long-standing friendship with the staff of Germany's leading distribution company Word and Sound, it was a logical step to take on a position as sales manager there. As a consequence of all this, it wasn't a long way to plan together with Daze to set up a platform for him and friends.
Hello? Repeat was born.
As the position as Manager and A&R is to time consuming to work on his own productions, Jan uses his little time to make everybody happy at H?R.
As a DJ he fits best in the late night hours, playing his highly individual and addictive mixture of deephouse, minimal and techno with rough edges, always focused on the dance floor.
