He mixes side by side with Dj Die, Krust, Aphrodite, Bad Company…and this in the biggest rooms of Switzerland and Italy. He obtains a residence at the Loft in Lausanne, plays occasionally for the Swiss radio station “Couleur 3”. From 1998, his eclectic side leads him to techno, electro and minimal as well.
