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
