Boris Brejcha

Genre: House

Origin: Germany

Boris Brejcha was born in Ludwigshafen (Germany) in 1981 and already had to experience some strokes of fate in his childhood. At the age of six, he was seriously injured in the Ramstein air disaster and spent months in hospital. Today, he still bears extensive scars from the severe burns. Because of teasing from classmates, Boris withdrew and discovered his interest in music. After a classmate of his brought a “Thunderdome” CD in middle school, he was hooked. He was dying to know how to make this new kind of electronic music. So at the age of twelve, he started producing electronic music himself as a hobby.

He made his first releases in 2006, the same year he had the first performance of his entire career. At the Universo Paralello Festival in Brazil. Since then, his mask is also indispensable. Inspired by the Brazilian Carnival, Boris chose the Joker mask as his trademark. In the international foreign countries his music found fast approval. Numerous gigs, for example South America and Russia, followed.

Since then, Boris has made a full-time living from music and has continued to develop as an artist. With the specially created genre “High-Tech-Minimal” Boris gave his extraordinary music a name. He went on to release on Autist Records and later on Harthouse. Through the music magazine “Raveline” he was named “exceptional talent 2007”.

When Boris founded his own music label Fckng Serious in 2015, he really took off. He released more music than almost anyone else.

He then achieved two notable breakthroughs in his career through the recorded sets with the French streaming channel “Cercle” and his set from the world-renowned electro festival “Tomorrowland”. Together, the videos on YouTube have about 140 million views.

In the meantime, it is impossible to imagine the music scene without Boris. He has achieved international fame and plays every weekend on the biggest stages in the world. Label bus tours in the nightliner have also taken him across Europe with his colleagues. His specially arranged concerts, with a special concept, always attract tens of thousands of fans everywhere. His own fashion brand has also already achieved great fame.

Another highlight: his personalized squeaky duck with original Joker mask. He regularly hands them out at concerts or hides them in the world’s biggest cities, where fans can then search for them.

Most recently, he released his tenth studio album on Ultra Music and was ranked 42nd in the DJ-Mag voting of the Top100 DJs. Boris still plays only his own produced music at his gigs – and the success proves him right. Sold-out halls, screaming fans, TV appearances and weeks of touring – around the globe, he is eagerly awaited at all major festivals.
