Then in 1992 he and a good friend decided to become dj´s, buying Techno, Acid and Hardcore records at Now! recordstore in Mainz from Andi Düx and Holger Wick. 2 years and thousand mixtapes later Frank felt to be ready to play at real clubs in front of audience. He handed out a demomix to Dj R-Damski, who also worked at the Now! He liked it and asked him to play the warm-up at the Easy in Limburg.
