#Cologne, #Germany :


Since 1995 Techno veteran DJ Proton, hailing from the german city of Cologne (Köln) is tirelessly providing all sorts of underground Techno events in the Rhine region of Germany with his definition of Techno. Besides gigs at the legendary parties under the Mülheim bridge in Cologne during the end of the 90ties and a bunch of illegal raves, stations of his life as a DJ have been the mighty Butan Club in Wuppertal, the Ambulance Club in Cologne as well as numerous appearances in Europes big cities, such as Berlin, Barcelona, Belfast, Budapest, Helsinki, Krakow, London, Rome, Sofia or Vilnius.

During Protons early years of Techno the iconic Jeff Mills was dominating the DJ and producer polls, so after checking some of Mills’ playlists Detroit soon became a strong influence on the way Proton interpreted Techno and he started to travel around Germany to see DJs like Claude Young, Jay Denham, Juan Atkins, Derrick May or Jeff Mills himself on the rare occasions they played.

Detroit had more to offer. Not only the sound, but also the thoughts and concepts of Mike Banks from Underground Resistance, dealing with topics such as independence from Major-Labels and criticism of government indoctrination impressed Ex-Punker Proton sustainable and encouraged him to become a DJ himself.

Since 2008 till the lasst issue of the festival in 2016 he played a regular annual gig at Tundra, the biggest baltic electronic music festival, where his curiosity for crowds in foreign countries awoke. He is an integral part of the Groundzero Crew which puts underground back to live in Northern Germany, and from 2011 to 2015 he was resident at the Berlin based Hardbase events where he had regularly driven the Richter magnitude scale of the german capital into the red. 2014 he became part of the “We Are Underground” collective, doing parties mostly at undisclosed off-locations.

Coming across the work of artists like Blake Baxter, Dj Rush, Neil Landstrumm, Dave Clarke, Surgeon, Dj Kammy, Ben Sims, Cari Lekebusch, Chris Liberator, Miss Djax, PET Duo, Manu Kenton, Jamie Bissmire, The Horrorist, Mike Humphries, Exium, Perc, Remco Beekwilder and Colognes local hero and Techno pioneer Claus Bachor over the years his sets developed to be always hard, thrusting and shaped in rare stylistic diversity.

Protons enormous musical background knowledge, the feeling for the crowd, the right moment and his international experience melt down into a exciting and pumping result that is sure to rock every crowd that is open minded enough to appreciate a DJ who doesn’t act like a current Top Ten jukebox, but rather sees himself on a mission to teach and preach Techno as it was meant to be.

Techno veteran DJ Proton from Cologne is tirelessly sonicating all sorts of underground Techno events in the Rhine region of Germany since 1995. Besides gigs at the legendary parties under the Mülheim bridge in Cologne during the end of the 90ties and a bunch of illegal raves at abandoned houses and factories, stations of his life as a DJ have been the Hart aber Herzlich events at the mighty Butan Club in Wuppertal or the Ambulance Club in Cologne as well as numerous appearances in Berlin, Barcelona, Budapest, Helsinki, Krakow, London, Rome, Sofia or Vilnius.
