I don't call myself a DJ or producer.
- VICIOUS STEAM ENGINE - is a vision & a project of my heart.
It is passion, pure joy of Life and creative expression of myself.
Music is my spiritually jouerney.
May music & philosophy inspire you just as it once inspired me and still does today. Technolove!
I am Born at 15. August 1978 in Germany, Lörrach. I grew up in the 90ies with the upcoming Techno Szene in Switzerland & Germany. I am/was hooked by the driving Basslines at the Afterhours, straight forward Techno! ...the crazy Melodies, the sweat, those emotions, the goose bumps, the Power of the vicious Bassline, rolling like an unstoppable steam locomotive! Untz! Untz! Untz!
I loved to loose myself, while dancing with strangers, who felt like best friends. Forgotten was the sometimes nasty World and the Problems. I am so thankful for those experiences.
...switch before the time of Corona Lockdown:
I love to travelling. I was 2 Times in Cambodia and loved the Wild East. It was like Wild West, no Laws only Opportunities, no restrictions. For a few dollars you can shoot a cow with a bazooka. Of course, as a lifelong vegetarian, I didn't.
No, I was planted some Miracle trees from Africa at a vegan Restaurant and helped them to build it up.
An Business Permission cost 200 Dollar a Year in Cambodia and you can run a Business.
I was have an good Business idea for my own. I even wrote my businessplan. I saw there knights of fortune, go from dishwasher to millionaire! I was meet some crazy peoples there. They was the same like me. Open minded, no jealousy or envy. We was happy and celebrating Life together.
Sweet & cheap fruits every day, exotic spices, Sun, Parties, fluorescent plankton in the sea, under a silver full moon, Beaches dazzling and white like snow after the Monsoon.
Deserted wilderness, island paradises without pharmacy, hospital or police, life is different there. New experiences every Day. Stunning beauitiful Architecture in the jungle with awesome History and Peoples.
Siem Reap, the city at Angkor Wat. What a melting pot of crazy characters. It is a special group of people who come here from all over the world to visit the largest temple city in the jungle. Meaning-seeking, life-hungry chaots, adventurers and knights of fortune.
But Packs of dogs roam the city hungry at night. You easily become a prey, get bitten and can get rabid. Mafia gangs fight each other on the streets, pedophile sex tourists sneak around at night. Drug Addicts and Scammer try to trick you there. Prostitutes and very aggressive drunks are on the streets at night.
Or the poisonous snakes, sand flies on the islands that eat their way into your feet as maggots. There are many more dangers lurking there.You must always be aware & mindful. Without life experience you will be eaten up there in the short & long run. Heaven and hell, life and death are so close together in Cambodia.
The Magic and the Adventure was catch me at every Corner...it was such an pure and raw experience. What an inspiration, thank you life!!!
So, my Dream was to live in Cambodia.
Back to Germany. I moved to another Village for a new Working Place. Because i wanted to work one Year and graduate my Fitnesscoach A - B Licence (Medical Training, international Certificate). My Plan was, saving some Money and go to Cambodia. I worked 100 % and beside i studied for my Fitnesscoach. Everything was fine, i thought.
But how different it would come out at the End.
I was done with life in Germany and the people. All the bridges had burned down. No retreat.
Then Covid19 happens. Lockdown.
It was frightening and no fun at all.
Alone in a new village, no Friends, no Family. Completely isolated because of the Lockdown.
I just worked, studied and be in my small room.
I was graduating sucessfully my Fitnesscoach. I was so happy.
But my Dreams got crushed. Because my idea was to work like a medical Fitnesscoach for Expats in Cambodia. But it was impossible, Siem Reap/Cambodia was dependent on tourism. Cambodia was closed for tourism and most expats struggel to survive or leaving Cambodia.
...further private strokes of fate, the loss of my work, a toxic partnership, manipulative and false friends caused my old self to die.
Broken, shattered, alone and with no Vision anymore Music found me. And i found myself!
At August 2020 i buyed my first Dj Controller, only to looking, if i like it. Since then, i doing nothing others anymore...
"People celebrate together without judging themselves. People help each other without expecting anything in return."
Let's create a beautiful world."
For as long as I can remember, my sense of justice has been very pronounced. In addition to my music, I work professionally with disabled people and help/support them.
Many people say to themselves: If you don't agree with me, you're my enemy! ...but I find it much nicer the other way around: If you are not my enemy, I am your Friend. And as long as you don't harm anyone, you can do whatever you want.
For me, social media are tools that allow me to spread my Vision through Music.
I just love all kinds of Music but i grew up in the 90ies. Techno is my Soul.
Expect a journey through all the styles of techno music. I produce my own songs and continue to learn.
Currently I am doing a "music production" course to improve my "Abelton live" skills, to continue to deliver good beats to you.
Music connects people.
Music is the universal world language. Music is the key.
Music is the Answer!
"Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence"

"creativity is intelligence having Fun"

"to live a creative Life, we must loose our Fear of beeing wrong"

The greatest gift for me is, when other people enjoy my music as much as I do and got my Message.
For me, social media are tools that allow me to spread my Vision through music. Lets spread the Message.
my favorite Quotes:
"The humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of the beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesn't permit anyone to lower his head to him. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor to anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone lower than him scrape the floor for him."
“The aim is to balance the terror of being alive with the wonder of being alive.”
“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.”
“All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. However, a path without a heart is never enjoyable. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy - it does not make a warrior work at liking it; it makes for a joyful journey; as long as a man follows it, he is one with it.”
What about my preference for dark artworks and gas masks?
A gas mask is needed to survive in a hostile environment. You are cut off from nature, isolated and what we breathe determines the gas mask. It is a symbol of the industrialized war against Mankind. We don't need more machine people, we need more humanity, connectedness and a return to Mother Nature.
The Covid19 pandemic has many similarities. And for me, Covid19 was a massive catharsis of my personality. From which I took a clearer view of the World and myself. It's amazing how much we can change ourselfs. For better or for worse.
And the dark artworks I use represents just that to me. The potential and reality of people's development in a bad direction. Machine Humans, cut off from his own emotions and nature.
Poor existance in a man-made hostile environment. Fighting in survival mode and insensitive thinking only of their own well-being.
The human beeing and Mankind is limitless potential in every directions. Good and Bad. It is our thoughts and actions that shape us.
Change is the only constant in the universe. And so much has to change at the moment.
Be the Change! Technolove!
