In his own way Tend only continues the family tradition. Through the equipment given to him by his father, such as old records, tapes and tape recorders, he had already learned how to DJ as a small boy. Born in Eisenach/Thuringia, he was already infected by electronic music before the fall of the wall. Stimulated by the general progressive atmosphere in Germany, he started to organize his first parties in 1993/94 in very unique locations, ffom an old arch, factories and real street tunnels. With his ?Oder auf Brot?-Posse he plays all over Thuringia and of course beyond that. He is responsible for the Fanzine ?Oder auf Brot ?, which has existed since 1994. Apart from organizing events, him and his partner Granlab take care of the label Broque.de, which belongs to the most successful ones on the German internet, with their mp3-releases (#3 De:Bug / #13 Groove reader’s poll charts 2008). Meanwhile he has also started his own vinyl series, which is distributed by Kompakt. As if that were not enough he also writes for different music magazines such as Partysan and phlow.net. His own sound spreads in all directions somewhere between groovy house and progressive Techno. It fits as much in elevators as in huge dancehalls.
