The idea to do a 9 to 5 job, even going to school gave Gabriel nightmares already when he was a very young boy. His passion was always bigger than his discipline and his dreams were even bigger. He wanted to be really good in something and a little famous which would solve a lot of wishes like Independency, beeing loved by everybody, especially girls and money to have a good live.

Thats why his passion for science, philosophy, electronics, sports and music often lead into complete obsession in one of these things. At the age of 15 he wanted to win the tour de france and cycled 60 to 160 km every day after school but ended his racing career after the first race, which ended up being too violent in his opinion. Then he wanted to take Richie Samboras place and ended up playing guitar for 2 years – 5 hours every day – but it didn’t do it for him either. Then he finally discovered his passion he would stick to for longer: Electronic music.

Music you can create on your own seemed like a vast, undiscovered field surrounded by endless possibilities and the hope to be finally seen as a person, to be valued, make a living and find a place in an alternative society.

In 2004 he produced a boundary-breaking track called „Süssholz“, a very melodic and uplifting tune. After several declines, the label „Treibstoff“ wanted it. A few weeks later the track was charted number one on the Groove Charts and became a must have on the DJs playlists at the time. In the following months, basically nothing happened. Spaghetti and Ketchup and a little job at a colognes clubs cloak-room still had to make his living.

He was already about to lose hope, after 9 years of production without success, when a few months later it suddenly all shifted. Bookings from many countries came in and he shifted in no time from zero to a headliner. Totally overwhelmed by this unexpected situation, he would travel with a huge Live-Set-Up to his shows, without really understanding what was happening around him. In 2005 he surpassed all his prior releases with „Ihre persöhnliche Glücksmelodie“. Everything became bigger and the massive support from Sven Väth and Cocoon at the time kept pushing his career forward.
