Frederik was born in the northern part of Germany and grew up in the city of Schwerin where he decided to spend all his time and money buying vinyl and honing his mixing skills before finishing High School and moving to Berlin.
"Music always played a big role in my family. Between my Mom’s encouragement to push me to play a musical instrument and the big independent music collection of my Dad, music always had a profound influence in my life. “
With little effort, Frederik knew in which direction he was destined to go. With this type of musical background and a deep passion for hunting restlessly for new and outstanding music, it was only natural for him to find his way behind the controls.
Before the founding of "The Reason Y“ Frederik used to play under several other pseudonyms for more than 10 years starting with gigs in 2006.
