Back & Alive

Jos van Aken

I was born in Aachen, Germany in 1971. I have been interested in electronic music since my early youth. At the beginning there were albums by Jean Michelle Jarre, Vangelis and Kraftwerk. In my teenage years I was most interested in the synthypop bands, among them, of course, Depeche Mode, Camouflage, OMD and many others. I started as a DJ in our school disco in 1985, but you couldn't really call it Djing. In the area of trance I started to play in 2001. It all started with the tracks by Bonzai, with artists like Yves Deruyter, PUSH and Jones & Stephenson to name just a few. In 2005 I started my own live radio show Inspirations & Influeneces on PureDJ.com. Unfortunately, this station is no longer available. In 2007, a radio show was added to ODU.FM called Journey to the Sky. In 2007 I also made a guest set for the radio station Sunshine Live. In 2009 I had my first release with my friend KaltFlut on Elliptical Recordings, a few years later another one on D.MAX Recordings. After that it became quiet about me. After a long break, I'm back now. On GlobalBeats.FM and LaZer.FM I published some B2B sets with my long-time friend Danny Grunow and even took over some of his electronic impressions shows completely. This year I published a bootleg from Rank 1 - Airwave together with my friend LightControl as a free download on SoundCloud. After all these projects, I have now decided to start my own PodCast again. I hope we will have a lot of fun together in the future.
