MR.DERO started djing in 1997. He is known for his unique dancefloor filling sets, which reach from hip hop over reggae, dancehall and dub, funk, soul and breaks to uptempo big beats, dubstep and electro, with a lot of turntablism elements - all in a mix that garantees to make the whole club shake right away.
Since the founding he is an active part of tiefparterre.net, a creative plattform for producers, deejays, vocalists, live musicians and artists, and he is running „BUTTERBAR", one of the most successfull nights in Austria´s clubscene, with them. 2000 he founded the turntablism crew „ghostfaders", together with his dj collegue Amtrak, who was known for their creative and musical sets on four turntables. In 2002 he won the statewide DJ-Contest02.
Since then Mr.DERO has rocked clubnights every week all over Europe and has performed with or shared stages and dj-booths with numberous artists and bands like Guru's Jazzmatazz, Beginner, Beardyman, Eins Zwo, Krafty Kuts, DJ Vadim, Deliquent Habits, Alice Russel, Rafik, Kid Fresh, Beware, JStar & Mc Honey Brown, Dorfmeister, Bonobo, Smith & Mighty, Marc Hype, Waxolutionists, Princess Superstar, Dennis Lisk, Dj Mad and many more.
He has had special appearances at the succesfull „Battlejam" nights with Beardyman, JFB, Klumzy Tung and Ed Solo in different cities in England and Austria.
As a producer, being busy since 2000, he has found an unique sound, which, being based on hip hop, branches out in many different directions. He produced parts of Tiefparterre´s first Battlewax `RobotBreakz/ Echo Vibes´ and won FM4´s Remix Contest in 2004 with his version of Louis Austin´s `Lookin for Love´. Not only since then he is known for his fine remixing skills, which he has proven numerous times until today.
In 2005 he released his own DJ-Vinyl, Tiefparterre´s `Battlewax Vol2 - A Salute to real Dj´s´, on which Waxolutionists´ DJ Buzz produced the flipside.
MR.DERO has made various own and compiled mixtapes, like the well known „Butterbar"-series and has produced music for television- and DVD productions, for skateboard- and surfvideos and computergames.
Since 3 years he is now in the studio and performing together with MC and multi-vocalist KLUMZY TUNG from London (UK). Their live turntablism, positive lyricism, freestyle madness and all round energetic hip hop orientated shows, have been entertaining and exciting audiences from England to Austria from the moment they began performing together. Often joined by energetic live drummer dr.pheel (AUT) and sweet soul queen Farina Miss (GER), as the successful band STEVIES WONDER GLASSES, they share a passion for putting on a show that not only provides music of the highest quality, but also grabs the crowds attention, including them in the performance, evoking an upbeat and rousing response which is translated into a night of live music not easily forgotten!
