Everything you always wanted to know about Faderhead:


WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

Hamburg, Germany

WHEN WILL YOU COME TO MY CITY/AREA/COUNTRY TO PLAY A SHOW?
That is completely dependent on the bookers/promoters/clubowners in your area. Please check the dates in the “live” section of this website to find out which gigs are 100% confirmed. If you want us to play in your area, make sure to annoy the fuck out of the people at your local clubs by telling them to book Faderhead for a show. If they don’t know that you want Faderhead to perform, then they won’t book us!

CAN I BOOK YOU FOR A CONCERT/DJ SET?
Yes, of course. Please send an email to booking@faderhead.com and outline the following details: date, club/venue, city, country, other bands/DJs of the night, full name of the organizer and any other details that describe the event. You will hear back from my booking agent as soon as possible.

WHAT DOES “TZDV” MEAN?
It means “Tanz, Zwo, Drei, Vier” which can be translated as “Dance, two, three, four”. It’s derived from “Links, Zwo, Drei, Vier” which is a German military marching command.

IS THAT STEVE NAGHAVI (AND ONE) IN THE “TZDV”-VIDEO?
Yes. That video is featuring Steve Naghavi (And One), Mr. Petersen (Combichrist), Eric Burton (Catastrophe Ballet) and Myoonji Sadamune. They are all friends of mine and when I asked them to be in the video for a little cameo, they all said yes!

IS THAT STEVE NAGHAVI (AND ONE) IN THE “BLACK FRIDAY” MOVIE?
Yes.

IS THAT STEVE NAGHAVI (AND ONE) AS PANZERMENSCH IN THE “FISTFUL OF FUCK YOU”-Video?
Yes.

HOW DID YOU GET THE NAME FADERHEAD
I got that name from an American friend who saw me mix a song and watched me moving the faders on a big mixing console. So he said “Man, you’re a real Faderhead!” – and everyone in the room thought the name was fitting and started calling me that.

CAN YOU REMIX ONE OF MY SONGS?
I am currently not available for remix work. Please talk to my friends at XP8 or Project SAM. They do killer remixes.

CAN I USE ONE OF YOUR SONGS ON A COMPILATION?
For all licensing, promotion and cooperation requests please contact Mr. Alexander Jost at L-Tracks Records via email: marketing@l-tracks.com

CAN I BE IN YOUR NEXT VIDEO?
If you think you have some characteristics that could be interesting for the next Faderhead video, please send an email with 3 photos (1 face, 2 full body) to info@faderhead.com and include your name, age, hometown, cell phone number and any skills you might have (like dancing, fire-breathing, contortionist, etc.). If you are suitable in any way, we will DEFINITELY contact you.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE DRINK?
Vodka on the rocks. My favorite brands are Absolut 100 and Grey Goose, but Alpha Noble and Finlandia will do fine. The ice cubes are a must though, cause warm vodka is abominable…

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE TO MAKE MUSIC?
I don’t use any hardware anymore. There’s just no point with the quality of software these days. I use Cubase and the usual VSTis that everyone uses (Sylenth, Massive, Omnisphere, etc.). And I can’t say it enough: the equipment does not make the music. If you can’t make a song with whatever you have right now, you won’t be able to do it with the best stuff in the world. I could still make Faderhead songs on 8 track tape – and I have done that!
