DJ Hektik was named in 1999 and played mainly technoid Drum & Bass (with excursions into other realms),
mixed in tightly arranged abstracts and sometimes combined with creative intros and breaks including turntable/mixing tricks.
He maintained Tilt-Recordings and T-FREE
(see label history) and perhaps more labels (hehe),
organized events in the Mannheim/Heidelberg area in Germany,
co-hosted the weekly Drum & Bass radio show "DMF" (2001 - 2011),
was an integral part of the Trio-Music crew (2000 - 2009),
wrote websites (since 2001), reflected
on music & culture
and (co-)wrote "the tune that renewed the heart of all music genres".
