He started his career as a light jockey in a well known little club, worked in a record shop and finally became DJ – this is how most DJ biographies read. It is rather unusual, however, when someone already belongs to an internationally successful music producers before becoming a DJ.Tillmann Uhrmacher is one of these exceptions. In 1989 he already had his first No. 1 Hit in the German Single Charts with his project Mysterious Art and Das Omen, Teil 1. Nearly 500,000 singles had been sold and the song quickly led the charts all over the world. Tillmann had conquered the world of pop music doing productions and remixes for the most famous Acts of the early nineties such as Mauro Picotto, Judge Jules, Tomcraft, Safri Duo, Marky Mark, Jimmy Sommerville, Inner Circle, Babyface, Culture Beat, Hot Chocolate and many more. He worked in studios together with real legends of pop producers, such as Frank Farian or Harold Faltermeyer. It must have been a great time for 23-year old Tillmann, taking part in events like Madonna’s Blond Ambition Tour 1990 as a Support Act. In 1990, when he toured the world with Madonna, he also started his radio show MaxiMal. Today, in 2006, Maximal celebrates its 16th birthday. It is now the eldest radio show for electronic music in German Broadcasting and is to be heard every Friday evening from 8 to 12 p.m. on Sunshine Live. In May 2006 Tillmann won the Special Award for his radio show MaxiMal on the DJ meeting in Duisburg. In his own studio Tillmann works a lot on Clubsound with Peter Ries and later with Stefan Fornaro. In 1999 he produced the single Autumn together with Mauro Picotto under the name Lava. It is to be found on Picotto’s own label BXR and soon became a big club hit. Step by step a lot more albums were produced, such as Bassfly, Free, etc., which all became famous in clubs. In 2002 Tillmann reached out for even more: On the popular English label Sony Directions the track On the Run was published. It became No. 1 f the Cool Cut-, Dance and Club charts, no. 16 of the English sales charts and the fans of Paul van Dyks Soundgarden on Radio Fritz made the track their No. 1 Hit of the year! In many countries the corresponding video clip became a long-running hit. More productions followed, which are to be found in the paylists of nearly every top DJ. Tillmann had been nominated in the category Best Trance Artist for the Dance Music Award Germany in 2005.Tillmanns new single The pride in your eyes (Om Nama Shiva) published on September 1st 2006. Of course, it includes the Martin Roth Remix " as Martin and Tillmann have known each other for more than ten years and both live in the Frankfurt area. Martin Roth had his first radio gig in Tillmann’s radio show MaxiMal and the two still work together quite often….
