"My real-name is Andreas Buttweiler. Original I came from Mannheim/Germany and love music.Since 1992 I’m Ambient-DJ playin on partys, raves and clubs. In 1997 i start my own ambient-club called “Kreislauf”, every monday on several locations in Mannheim and Heidelberg.
With Kreislauf I also was a part of some events like Time Warp, Big Warp, Future, Sounds of Life or any Art-Exhibitions. Since 2000 i produce a weekly radio-show, named “Kreislauf.FM” on the free radio-station “Bermudafunk” in Mannheim. Every Tuesday at 22:00 cet the motto of the show is “modern music to relax” – and allows different styles of electronic music. Since 2 years the show is also played in Hamburg on “Tide 96.0”, also a free radio-station. Since i have dsl, i look for free music and also run my blog to make it more popular.
I think it’s a human right to listen to music, cause it’s one of the things humans ever have made. And music is like a smile, everybody can understand it! I support the creative commons licenced music, cause it’s a fair licence for artists and users.
That’s not a communism idea, thats an idea of free humans to free humans.
We don’t need any major-label, which make the big money.
Give the money to the artists and not spend it in drm."
