After that he got more and more infected by electronic music, such as Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb and Front 242, visiting the legendary EBM parties at Dorian Gray. By the time OFF released the first single “Bad News” Frank left the EBM scene and went out clubbing more and more at the dance clubs in the Frankfurt area, such as the Wartburg in Wiesbaden and the Aoxomoxoa in Taunusstein, listening to the hot and new Acid sound, that came over from England.1989 the next big bang infected the whole clubscene in Frankfurt with Techno-House, such as Rozalla and Anasthasia. From that time on the Omen, the new Club of Sven Väth was the best place for him to celebrate the new music.

Then in 1992 he and a good friend decided to become dj..s, buying Techno, Acid and Hardcore records. 2 years and thousand mixtapes later Frank wanted to play at real clubs in front of audience, so he handed out a demomix to Dj R-Damski, who has worked for the Now! recordstore in Mainz.
