At the beginning Daniel Dexter was fan of punk music but subsequently was drawn by the electronic genre. The machine-like sound of bands like Kraftwerk impressed so much that at the age of 16 he bought his first DJ equipment. Gradually he was attracted by the underground culture in Bavaria and discovered the illegal parties in his home town Inglostadt, which had been set up in abandoned factories and warehouses. Daniel sometimes had to play music for more than 7 hours and even his drinks were not covered by the club owners. Despite that he never lost his enthusiasm for the job and soon started producing his very own tracks. Shortly after the beginning of 21st century he moved to Berlin attracted by the booming musical scene over there. After the release of his first compositions Daniel Dexter was invited more and more often as leading act.
