Over the course of time, Niklas Worgt has used his share of project names.

His most well known would have to be Dapayk. Since 1993 Niklas has crafted

his own tracks. Cuts with Drum&Bass and Breakbeat sport the same

difference as Pumpin’ Techno and Techhouse. As the Drum&Bass live act

“Frauds in White” he started to make a name for himself on the barely

developed breakbeat scene of middle Germany in the mid-90’s. As

“Sonstware” he held residence at parties and stepped into the late 90’s as

Dapayk. There were a few years however between then and 2001 when he

released his first record. From that release, the headline was basically taken

as the cornerstone for his various projects in the labelname Mo’s Ferry

Productions. In Cooperation with Eva Padberg there came the project

Dapayk&Padberg. After the first single was released in 2005, a first album

was released reaching the years top10 charts of the magazines Groove, De-

bug and Raveline as well as bringing Niklas a Top10 spot in the producer

Charts. His sound can be characterized as “Prickling” (Frickel) displays the art

of balancing electronics music’s Minimal, Electronica and Breakbeat froms.

Together with his school mate Jan Langhammer he founded Mo’s ferry

daughter labels “Fenou” and “Rrygular” as the playground for electronica

and minimal techno respectively. In addition to his work as Dapayk, Niklas

released since the beginning of 2006 techno tracks as “Marek Bois” on

Trapez and Rrygular.

In 2006 Dapayk’s first solo album was released. He entered again the top10

of the poll charts of German techno magazin “Groove” as best producer,

live act and with the album itself.

Dapayk has released on labels such as Karloff, Textone, Orac, Contexterrior,

Trapez, Resopal, Friends of Tomorrow, Mo’s Ferry Prod., Fenou and
