Kunzi started making music when he was just five years old. Influenced by the likes of Supertramp and Pat Metheny, he started out in the rock scene, building his own studio in 1985 and engineering demos for rock bands before discovering electronic music via the likes of Cosmic Baby and Talla 2XLC's Moskwa TV project.
In 1994 Kunzi launched his Tandu alias with the Acido EP. With a hard, psychedelic sound the EP marked his first foray into full-on trance. The EP went on to sell over 10,000 copies.
