Cedric Grosius was born on 22nd December 1976 in Eastern France.

At only 12 years old, he started to pay attention to electronic music and quickly learned how to use turntables at a local radio station, RVN.

He continued to master the art of DJing and eventually landed himself some regular local guest slots.

His love of music naturally progressed into production and he started to create his own tracks, firstly with an Amiga 500, using Protracker, and secondly with a PC, using both software vst’s and hardware synths.

During a DJ competition in a well-known French club, Zorn, he choose his scene name, Brainkicker, and introduced the real hardstyle sound to France.

Since then, Brainkicker has DJ’d at many parties and has seen a lot of his own productions released, under several alias and groups, like “Mindstomper”, “Bass Gangstaz”, “Hellboyz”, “Golden Goal”, “Global Hardstylers”.

Brainkicker is now the leading hardstyle DJ and producer in France and tries to make his name and skills popular beyond its borders, like he did at Q-Base 2005 festival in Germany.
