Biography

Knowing how to make a night an unforgettable experience – that is what TALLA 2XLC has been famous for since many years. As a DJ and producer the Frankfurt-based artist belongs to the cream of the technoscene and he continuously grew to be one of the top characters of the technoculture. He was the one who used the word “techno” for the first time for categorizing the arising electronic music productions – long before the US scene created the term “techno-house”.

Inspired by Kraftwerk and Beethoven, addicted to melodic and progressive atmosphere, Talla has created mindblowing anthems. He is touring all over the globe, playing & and has played at major events and clubs, such as Space and Amnesia/Ibiza, Gatecrasher/UK, Guvernment/Toronto, Space/Miami alongside Tiesto, Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Sander Van Doorn and many more.

TALLA 2XLC is one of the most booked DJs from Germany.– The list of the events and clubs TALLA plays is nearly endless and there can be found only the most famous locations. With his labels he had huge hits. Doing remixes and Edits for B.B.E., Yves Deruyter, Cosmic Gate, Faithless etc and being a member of the “Trance Allstars”-project brought him international respect. With his Technoclub compilation and the so-called “mix-battles” he built up a whole genre.

Now we live in the year 2012, many people say techno and trance are dead, but TALLA 2XLC shows us the opposite: with the reanimation of his “Tetsuo”-label, the electrohouse label “Electric” (here he discovered superstar Deadmau5), he is back in the international scene stronger than ever and celebrates big successes. Almost all tracks released on these labels have reached the top 10 of several online download platforms and many of them were presented as Single of the month at England’s famous Mixmag.

Once a month you can listen to TALLA 2XLC live on the radio. At Germany’s biggest dance radio station “Sunshine Live” he presents every first Thursday of the month (22.00 – 0.00 h) the best trax of the international trance- and technoscene. Since February, his global fans can catch him for example at ah.fm with his new internetshow “Addicted to trance”. Besides that, he has lately started a new monthly podcast, that you can find here for free:

Together with his production partners he is working on new, wonderful hymns that will be released throughout the world this year. The latest tracks such as “Dynamo” and “Two worlds” with Dennis Sheperd were already hammered by all famous DJs such as Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto and many more. The newest single “Extravanza” released on paul oakenfolds “perfecto” label, attracts a lot of attention in the scene and can be found in all charts and djplaylists. In December 2011, Talla 2xlc had released his new single “The realm of india”, including vocals by Indians most famous actor “Sharukh Khan” – taken of the blockbuster movie “veer zara”. A huge amazing reaction is happening at the moment about this single!

The Technoclub compilation series has found a new home at “Klubbstyle“ in the beginning of 2006. All the latest volumes reached the official german Media Control Charts, and vol. 29 “TALLA 2XLC meets Giuseppe Ottaviani was voted as the best CD of the year by the readers of german Raveline magazine!

A big opening night was celebrated in may 2011, when TALLA presented the first party in his “most wanted” location, the legendary MONZA-club in Frankfurt-city! At his Technoclub, he played with Tiesto, Carl Cox and Paul van Dyk behind the decks. The clubbers travel from all over Europe to join TALLA, his residents and guest-DJs at the monthly parties.

TALLA 2XLC was found at spot number 86 at the DJ Mag charts (out of more than 3000 DJs on the list!). The readers of german Raveline magazine made their choice and TALLA took the 6th spot when it comes to Germany’s best DJs for the third year in a row. In the same voting his Technoclub CD came first, as already said, and it left all major dance compilations behind, even big brands like A state of Trance.

Last months he started to work for DJ Mag Magazine, being the head critic for the trance department.

2012 will be a big year for TALLA, many new songs, new compilation CDs and a worldwide tour are in the pipeline.

TALLA wants to show at his gigs, that there can be found really good and innovative trance and progressive sounds again!
