christian *c-rock* rindermann, born 1972 (frankfurt, germany), first dj-gig 1989, first release 1994 (on ladomat/playhouse). one of the heads of the new german house movement along names like ata macias (playhouse/robert johnson), yannick (needs not wants) and dixon (sonar kollektiv). founder and editor of germany's first house-underground-magazine "SiZE!" (together with dj yannick).
from 1994 to 1997 c-rock was the man behind a couple legendary events (together with ricardo villalobos) and clubnights with guests like chez damier, dan curtin, david alvarado, john acquaviva, carl craig and many more. a residency at frankfurt's box (former xs-club) started in 1999 and a monthly residency at club monza followed in 2000.
summer 2004 marked the start of c-rock's *going deeper* clubnight every friday at cocoonclub frankfurt. *going deeper* stands for a broad selection of housemusic, disco, classics and contemporary techno and house productions with guests like chez damier, charles webster, markus enochson, king britt, jef/k, vincenzo and many more.
running labels are stir15 recordings (deephouse), lofi stereo (electronic & minimal) and release music (chicagohouse oldskool influenced). side-projects include the management of the music network mad-net and the technical-conception for the red bull music academy. a development-collaboration with ecler audio barcelona brought up the effect-mixer nuo5 and the first real midi dj-mixer nuo4.
his productions and dj-sets are influenced by the early work of curtis mantronik, kraftwerk as well as chicago-house and the strong european electronic body movement. deephouse always has been a major influence as well as all kinds of jazz and dub productions.
c-rock's debut album track & feel (stir15-dlp1/cd1, 1998) is still classified as one of the milestones of the new school of german housemusic and has been voted up to position #8 in the spex "best-of-1998-charts". collaborations with needs (aka boobjazz), ricardo villalobos, luciano & pier bucci, sven vaeth, clair dietrich, chris duckenfield, glance & chris gray, russ gabriel, richard davis, swayzak, richard davis and many more. his dj-career took him to clubs around the globe in cities like santiago de chile, barcelona, zurich, chicago, sao paolo, lisabon, capetown and many more.
latest works include remixes for phonique & erlend oye, abdullah ibrahim and blaze. besides his solo-projects and remixes c-rock also teams up with neville attree under the name of "further" and with matthias vogt for their "motorcitysoul" project.
since motorcitysoul started their collaboration the duo released the chez damier co-production "kids in the streets" on stir15 recordings (09/2005) and the 2006 hit "mbali" (stir15) as well as the stunning jimpster remix of "aura". mcs also released on aus music (uk), lofi stereo and remixed tracks by phonique, dirt crew, tiger stripes and many more.
