André Galluzzi (Cocoon/DE)
Jean von Baden
André Galluzzi was born in Frankfurt in 1973. At the age of 14, he worked in a Club behind the bar as one of the DJs falls ill and André gets the chance to fill in behind the decks, an experience that was to change the course of his life...
In the beginning of the nineties he has become a regular in a variety of clubs.
In 1994 he started to work for the renowned record distributor Neuton, where he meets Paul Brtschitsch. In 1995, André and Paul found the label TAKSI. Shortly after receiving a residency in Berlins famous TRESOR in 1996, André moved to the German capital.
By now, he has become quite famous for his intoxicating 10 hour sets; he plays all around the globe and has another residency in Berlin´s BERGHAIN / PANORAMABAR. However arduous his working schedule may be, there is still time for creativity.
In 2011 André and Dana Ruh found the Label ARAS, not only to release their own musical vibes, but to give way to unheard-of talents and productions. ARAS takes its name from the brilliantly colored macaw parrot, and as a virtual proof stands for a multichromatic style that the label uses for its creative output.
