Über DJ Dag

In 1985 DJ DAG started his career as a DJ at the „Music Hall“ in Frankfurt. First he played there on Mondays because nobody else wanted to. Only after a few weeks, average of about 500 people visited his events, without any promotion, only by being talked about. From time to time, he also worked as a light-jockey in the Music-Hall. Later on, he played there on Thuesday, as well and finally at the weekend. After 2 years he quit due to problems with the management and accepted an offer from a small club „Mirage“ in Saarbrücken, where he spinned since the opening. After a quarter of a year he changed tot he „Aoxomoxoa“ in Wiesbaden And then returned to Frankfurt tot he „Vogue“ (which was to become the Legendary „Omen“ later on). Vogue at that time was primarily a so called „schickimicki“ (=more chick) club, so he go problems with the management about the techno sound he played, such as „Nitzer Ebb“, „Front 242“, Skinny Puppy“ and so on even though the auditory liked it.

His dream had always been to play in the big club „Dorian Gray“. In March 1988 it came through. After he had been working there as a light-jockey for a while. He took the heritage of Sven Väth in the big club, where he shared Sunday mornings with Thorsten Fenslau for 5 successful years.

After the years at the Dorian Gray he never expected anything better, but actually he enjoyed the time at the Omen and being a member of the „Omen-familiy“ very much.They got on very well and he never had any difficulties with the management and the door and futhermore the party people where very enthusiastic.

At the same time he worked as e resident DJ at Club Uk (the later Complex) in London as well, where he rocked the house once a month.

Then again, it was time for a change and he emigrated to America. Over there he worked as a resident DJ in a club called „1015 Folsom“ with a more commercial even called „Nikita“ on Fridays and a real underground event „Sunday“ on Sudays. Homesickness made him return to Germany. Together with his wife and his daughter Suna, two dogs and two horses they lived out the dream which they had in America, back in Frankfurt.

After his return to Germany, he worked as a resident DJ at the U60311 in Frankfurt, but at that time he didn`t really feel at home there even though he had a lot of fun there as well. After one year , he again changed the club and went back to the Dorian Gray. In December 2000 the famous Dorian Gray closed and Dag and his familiy moved to Ibiza, where he worked as a resident DJ at the „Space“ in 2001 as well at the MTW in Germany, at the same time. In addition to his long-term residencies the Dorian Gray, Omen and U60311, he has always spinned in many clubs in Germany, other countries and continents.

Today, Dag played at the Cocoon Club in Frankfurt as a Resident Dj, until the Club closed, two Years ago.

With his Projekt DJ Dag & Matthew Kramer (we play records) he released next mounth there new single „Omen Ade“; a tribute to his old Club The Omen in Frankfurt.
