Back in the days at the west-Saxon highlands there was a missile, which marked the starting point. When Credit 00 saw the legendary rocket rise on Tetris’ final screen, it was the first time he became aware of electronic music at all. Since then it actually hasn’t changed that much. He keeps pushing that buttons that belong to the impressive pool of music machines towered up next to his bed.
After moving to Dresden in 2000 to study fine arts, his passion for synthesizers and drum machines got nurtured through visits of Dresden’s club-canalisation. He quickly made himself a name as a DJ, who is just doing his own thing and got popular for that reason. As a part of the Idealfun-crew he started hosting parties always in the twilight zone between legal and illegal. This led to “Robo Dance”, Dresden’s only and (also for some other reasons) best Electro club night featuring guests like DMX Krew, Luke Eargoogle or Imatran Voima. The track Credit made with Randy Barracuda of Imatran Voima has probably been created some time after the show. Apparently, Randy was not in good shape anymore and so “Lebensraum” unmistakably bears Credit’s hallmarks.
For his own music he’s inspired by cannibal movies, number theory and birds. Still, his music is not easy to pigeonhole. After all, he loves Synth Wave, Electro, Afro, Kraut, Kosmische, Disco, Italo, Miami Bass and other Proto stuff – a lot of machine music. “Wave Memory” and “Eiserne Lunge”, his first tracks for Uncanny Valley, are good examples for this unpredictability. Finally in 2012, “The Living Room EP” gave space for his vision of electronic music over the whole length of a record. After the raunchy EP “Ice Cream” in 2013 he was busy with establishing the new UV sub label Rat Life which he curates. But we shouldn’t forget that catchy “Obsessed” tune he contributed to the UV20 compilation and certainly not the hedonistic “Party Beats”-EP as well as his “Tribal Rhythm Machine“.
