Softcore showed his interest in music at an early age by listening to various (and sometimes contradictional) genres of music and later on by studying anything related to music, composition and production. At schoolyears he took up guitar lessons which didnt last long because his dream always was to produce a complete music piece from scratch and not just playing an instrument! Technological achievements were always his other passion and along with that he was always fascinated by digital forms of art!
So it simply makes sense that nowadays, Softcore is creating his own musical pieces based on electronic-dance music with a mixture from old style house, new tech beats, minimalistic techno and dark atmospheres! He is considered by more than a few a "perfectionist" regarding the quality of the final production and he is well known for his extended use (and abuse) of MIDI - OSC controllers as parts of his performance routines.
His releases have received support from producers and DJs such as Fernando Ferreyra (Outside the Box, Frisky), Herc Kass (Proton, Pure.FM), Hypnotic Duo (Deepsessions), Placid (Lightworks, Frisky Radio), Sasha Le Monnier (Proton Radio, DI.FM), Jerome Robins (Bedrock, ensonicFM), 16 bit Lolitas (Bits n Pieces, Frisky Radio), Ingo Vogelmann (A&R FriskyRecords, L2 Music) and Aaron Lee (PureFM) amongst others.
His tracks have also appeared in compilations alongside producers such as Alex D'Elia (Ready2Rock, Rekluse), Lutzenkirchen, Mynude (Several Reasons Recordings, Frucht), Wally Lopez (theFactoria), SCSI-9 (Kompakt), Solee (Get Physical Music), SQL (Gem, Form), Tomkraft, Zoo Brazil, and others while as a DJ he has participated in events with Axel Karakasis (Remain Records), Christian Smith (Tronic Music), Mark Reeve (Cocoon Recordings, Drumcode), Tom Hades (Rhythm Convert(ed)), Lutzenkirchen, the Advent (Kombination Research, Codeworks) and many more.
