Born near Cologne, in the early 80’s, DOMPE developed a taste for beatsearly on and just as quickly the pots, pans and wooden spoons were abducted from the kitchen so he could practice drumming with them. It really did not take long before a drumset was under the christmas tree. Inspired by Nirvana and Metallica, he drove the neighborhood crazy with his practicing. Then in 1996, DOMPE made a new discovery: VINYL. His amazment at how such a small needle brought such a huge dance floot rocking beats life was indescribable. The drum were quickly swapped against turntables. He survived countless hours of mixing records in his living room until he got his first gigs. At the same time, he worked on his sound and refined his skills as a producer and sound designer.
2008 was the year when everything changed. DOMPE started throwing his own parties at „Elektroküche“ (Cologne) and became a resident job at the club. At the beginning of 2011 he released his first album „Beat Back“. The album had a widerspread national support. As a logical consequence he moved to Berlin in December 2011 to be in touch with the musical pulse of time. 2012 he started working on his second album „Paradise City“ influenced by the vibes and the lifestyle of the music metropolis. „Paradise City“ was released on Mimique Records in the middle of 2013 and became another big success. And if this was not already enough he assumed the label management of the imprint Stylerockets, a sublabel of the KiddazFM Music Group.
His tracks also started catching the ears of such respected and internationald Djs and producers like: Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Paco Osuna or Someone Else.
He has released tight tracks and remixes on following labels: Stylrockets, Playmobil, Supdub, Polar Noise, Amazing Records, Italo Business, For You Records, Mimique Records, K:lender Records, Cus Cus Music, Phaze Audio, Waap, just to name a few for that busy guy – a restless worker always searching for new sounds.
