WALDHAUS

Waldhaus, born in 1985, is one of the most versatile talents of the Hard Techno scene. After listening to beat oriented rock in his childhood, he was quickly caught by dance and trance music of the mid 90ies. Inspired by the TV broadcast of the Mayday festival in 1998 , he started DJing, beginning with trance and acid and then moving to hardtrance and techno and took his first steps into producing.

Realizing, that techno at that time was too soft for him, Waldhaus started to search for a harder sound on the internet, where he discovered music from DJ Amok, Chris Liebing and Sven Wittekind, that inspired him. He got in contact with Amok, who offered him his first release on Crowbar in 2004. Since then, many other successful releases have followed. Meanwhile Waldhaus broadened his musical horizon, since he got in touch with industrial and hardcore music. His sources of inspiration range from electronica, like Aphex Twin via Noise to Bach, Bruckner, Beethoven and minimal classical music like Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass. His musical approach is also influenced by novels, movies and science. He has developed and tries to refine his own unique and instantly recognizable sound, a bold combination of Hard Techno and Industrial Hardcore.

In 2005, his EPs on Artillery, including the hit track “The Darkness”, and Toolterror established Waldhaus as one of the innovators of the at that time somewhat stale Hard Techno sound, and secured his name among the top players. Both records were played by all major DJs and can be found on various compilations. The next years continued likewise, tracks on V/As and EPs, yielding the multifaceted release of Artillery16 and several hit singles on Industrial Strengh.

For his performances, Waldhaus unleashes an uncompromising Live tour de force of complex beats and viscious sounds on his ever growing fanbase. He has played all over europe with bookings in Holland, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Malta, Slovenia, Spain, Austria, Lithuania, Ukraine and many more. He takes his audience to the limit and beyond with what can be described as Borderline Techno, spiced with Industrial and Hardcore. Waldhaus’ motto is: “You can always push it a step ahead.”
