Credit 00 operates Rat Life Records, makes music with synthesizers and drum machines and throws records in the mix.
For more than a decade Alexander Dorn has shaken electronic sounds, stirring shapes and forms as Credit 00 that adhere to few genre tags.
Being sonically socialized through Hip Hop in the 1990s, Graffiti and Breakdance were the first outlets for his creativity, music dominating his daily life since a young age. It was through Hip Hop Culture that he realised that you don't need a degree or know how to play an instrument to create your own music.
Inspired by the US Ghetto music of the 80s his journey to explore the endless universe of sound had kicked off. Leading him through many phases of musical preferences: Classic Electro, Reggae Dancehall, Italo Disco, Chicago House, Detroit Techno, New Wave or Ghettotech...
After concentrating on numerous styles his mission became to combine different influences in DJing and production. Music without genre and boundaries is also the concept of his label Rat Life Records, since 2014 it has been a platform for his own output and those of like-minded artists.
Having released many EP's, Compilations and Collaborations on Labels like Uncanny Valley, Chiwax, June, Nation, Bordello A Parigi or Pinkman and especially his 2017 debut Album “Game Over“ show the many voices of an open minded artist. Even now Credit 00 is always on the look out for the unknown and seeks to challenge the listener and himself rather than fulfill expectations.
