In 2006 German DJ/producer Felix Kröcher was elected Best New DJ by the readers of music magazine Raveline. In 2020 he's still going strong! In 2015 we had a chat about his DJ debut. “Did I make any mistakes? Where to start?”

“Well, I started very early to throw parties at school and with the age of 16 I already played at the U60 in Frankfurt. That´s where I got my first experiences. I think I got some very good lessons there at the right ‘school’.”

Sven Väth and Chris Liebing

“Musically, I guess I got influenced most by my hometowns scene in Frankfurt am Main. Talking about my hometown, surely Sven Väth and Chris Liebing were of great influence. Also the line-up of the Timewarp event influenced the development of my DJ style massively. Think names like Carl Cox and Marco Carola. There inspired me a lot. Until today, I get inspired by events and sets played by others.

Nature One 2005

“One of my first breakthrough gigs was definitely the Nature One Festival 2005. I was to open the Century Circus and everyone who was important to me, was there to see me: my parents, family members, friends, colleagues from Radio Sunshine Live and even some schoolmates were present.”

Amazing

“This gig was unforgettable. I started playing at 6 PM when they opened the gates of the festival. Within 20 minutes the floor was packed. That was amazing and something I will never forget!”

Hours and days

“Of course, I prepared my first set well at home. I think I spent many hours and days on it. But you know, I still do. I always prepare each and every set very carefully.”

“Did I make any mistakes? Where to start?” (laughs) “I am only 31 now, but have been around in this scene for quite a while now. Yet, I still learn every day. You always try to improve yourself.”
