After buying many records from Andy Dux’s record store, Andy opened the doors to his studio and began to teach Eric the basics. Eric later joined the SAE School in Frankfurt, to study audio engineering. In 1995 he secured a release a vinyl EP on Andy Childs label “Forces Of Nature”. In 1998 he got his first offer to play at The Palazzo in Germany, where he went on to become a resident. In 2002 he also started his own party series “Tanz Der Familie”.
Around this same time period (together with Udo Niebergall) Eric founded the Masters Of Disaster and Beatdisaster record labels. These featured influential releases from artists, such as - Gayle San, The Advent, Chris Liebing, Hertz, Rush, etc - and were also a platform for Eric’s own releases. In 2003 the worldwide club hit “Ciao Bella” and the German chart hit “Tube Tech - The End” were released to massive acclaim.
