Biography of Thomas Muller
|Moniker(s) / ||Change|
I grew up in the 9th district of paris in pigalle. there i got in touch early with the dazzling nightlife scene around my neighborhood. but let us start in the beginning...
in the 1996s i listened to a lot of hip hop. especially the new york stuff like wu-tang clan, a tribe called quest and stuff like that as well as outkast. in 1997 when i was just fifteen the prodigy album „fat of the land“ with their hit „smack my bitch up“ was released. i listened to it three years later...like to almost everything. there are many albums i discovered which came out just a little bit too early for me.
„consumed“ plastikman changed my mind. since then i listened to every single piece of electronic music. pole 1,2,3, alexander kowalski, squarepusher, josh wink, jeff mills, laurent garnier and many more. there is a big mess of artist names on my myspace site that influenced me. still, i have kept the "sense of silence concept" from plastikman for many years in my deck.
i think my deepest influences come from the period of 1999 to 2004. like mr. oizo's "analog worms attack" in 1999.
in the summer of 2001 i experience my first club scene shock. i started using programs like propellerhead and ableton 2 and the korg er1 drum machine. this was the second big change in my mind. in 2002 i decided to go to ibiza with some friends and i discovered the happy punch techno of carl cox and the worldwide hugest smoke machine. during the same time i started to listen to drum'n bass music. mainly to roni size. i like dum'n bass because it mixes my taste of hiphop together with techno. i still listen to it from time to time.
finally in 2003 i decided to seriously produce music. i started off with two close friends of mine: okain and paul ritch. in 2005/2006 i became a sound engineer and on the 30th june of 2006 we were at the legendary "dimuschi" party in paris. live with my friends okain and paul ritch.
in may 2007 i moved to berlin. ich bin ein berliner. from there on it was only a short time till the 18th of february 2008 when i became an official bpitch control artist with signing my exclusive contract and releasing my first ep „ride on“(BPC168). now i am on the road!!!
i have to update my biography , its missing the last 4 years , i m working on it.
