”The Club is just an empty space, the drinks are the same worldwide, but I as a DJ, let magic arise through my music!”
Vlader is a world famous DJ. He tours throughout the USA to Asia and the whole of Europe. Yet still, he has not arrived at the climax he will reach in the near future. Vlader has an upcoming album release with many world-renowned artists, including a number of which he has already worked with. In 2010 he was included in “Shadyville DJs’, consisting of 25 DJs from all over the world, with only a handful from Europe – Vlader is one of them. The roots of this group are Dr. Dre and Eminem. Vlader is also the official DJ of the Ying Yang Twins. Collaborating for and with him is worth it, as well-known artists such as Snoop Dogg, DMX or Daddy Yankee bring him on board regularly as a support-DJ. His potential seems limitless, if you consider one thing: all the bookings and support he has received has been without a single release or publication. Anyone who has experienced a little taste for him only has to look at his biography to see his all-around talent.
Vlader as he is, was not born as a star. His polish was developed over time. In his early childhood he received the proper instruments: drums and a pair of sticks. With percussion he discovered his musical vein, which brought him to his schools orchestra. In addition, he joined the school band. He then commenced to win numerous musical awards. Even today he confesses his love for other genres, such as rock or classical music. In an effort to try something new, different musically from his existing image, Vlader became a DJ for his school at the tender age of twelve…and that with success! From across the region, every two weeks, more than 400 people celebrated his mixings. Vlader was way ahead of his time, laying the foundation as a thirteen-year-old: he learned to perform in public and promptly became a professional, while his peers played at home and considered DJing a hobby. In parallel, he garnered one prize after another as a B-boy. With his crew, he traveled throughout Germany. After his B-boy career, Vlader committed as a breakdancing teacher, conducting classes with more than 80 students. In 1997 he produced the hip “Q Dance Club”. After two years and a lot of experience, he became Resident DJ at some big city nightclubs. And again after two more years, in 2001 the Partykingz made him the head-DJ of Northern Germany. He was then and still is talent scouting … and his skills are incredible! Some of his students are well known throughout Europe.
Vlader has definitely made a name for himself. RTL signed him for “German Idol” parties…and where he once danced before, he now puts on the “Battle of the Year”, the world’s largest breakdance Event.
And the momentum continued to pick up. Because of his awareness, MTV hired him as an editor. Vlader was responsible for the “German Black Charts” (DBC) and the “German Reggae Charts”(DRC). Where his task was to determine current trends. His analyses are on the radio, television and Internet, and have been published in major music journals. Vlader has therefore influenced the music scene immensely and helped to set trends.
The rough unpolished gem that Vlader once was – is now sparkling. He has mastered the DJ booth even more than his drums-once his main passion. He is a master of his craft, not only with two, but with even three decks. But now comes the small but fine ingredient, which makes him even more particular: In 2008 Vlader began video mixing. So now, not only does he mix music on his turntables, but he simultaneously presents matching selected videos. Since 2011 he belongs to the world’s best in this category and is consistently among the finalists in such awards. In addition he was the European Champion in 2013 and 2014. Because of his widespread connections almost 350,000 music videos are available to him. An important selling point of an elite DJ is worth mentioning here: brands and companies show their attention. Vlader belongs to this elite. He represents and promotes diverse names such as Rane DJ, Ortofon, UDG Gear, Smash Vision and many others. Since video mixing is a rather new discipline, one can consider Vlader as one of the early pioneers of this genre. To underline his status, you can find him in the “Worlds Best Video Mixing” by the Society of “Video Dj Booking”. In addition, the Guinness Book of World Records carries his name in the longest DJ relay from 2013, where 125 DJs mixed continuously on turntables.
Currently Vlader is regularly flown to the United Arab Emirates, especially Abu Dhabi and Dubai since 2011, where he plays in large clubs. He was also awarded the 2014 “Middle East most favorite Hip-Hop DJ”. His Hype doesn’t stop, even for royal families, as the sheiks welcome him as a guest and DJ at their events. This year Vlader was booked among others, for Formula 1 in Abu Dhabi.
Furthermore, he has planned a tour of the United States and Canada. In addition to New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Toronto, he will also stop in various other major cities.
After all that, we finally do not forget what Vlader is. He gives the club its own personality. When Vlader takes control he rules the people in the club, he can control them. Vlader brings only the best out of it.
”For an artist and DJ like me, support is very important. I am grateful for all the support I receive, may it be positive or critical. You are only successful if, no matter what, how your work affects people stands in the focus. I also do it for my mother, who was and will always be my role model. She’s my number one.
