In the beginning there was ... no founding myth. But let me confess that it was probably Technotronic's “Pump up the Jam” that made me click. Or was it D-Train’s proto house classic “Keep on”? Almost anything went down in the years between 1989 and 1991, and, ignorant of any genrifications we simply called it “boom-boom”: From Soul II Soul to Moby, from Belgian Techno to Rimini House. But then again, it was the kind of glorious excess fabricated in the Mad Club in Lausanne that struck our chords. And yes, we did listen to Mr. Mike’s whacky, involuntarily funny impersonations of Kim Wilde (“You just kuu-ee-uuup meee haang-iiiin ooo-uun!”) on Couleur 3. During these years it was the East Coast House promoted by Mandrax and Oliver Stumm that made me jack. Or the likes of Kerri Chandler, Chez Damier, MK and Masters at Work. At the Vision parties of 1994 and 1995, I got in touch with some of the finer Techno grooves generated in Detroit, Berlin and Frankfurt. Then, in 1998, Motorbass released their album “Pan-Soul”. Quite the ear-opener. In 2003, things accelerated. Or did they slow down? I started my monthly radio show on and writing about electronic music was next. And yes, I confess, I like to deejay, too.
