Born in 1976, ZLK’s music education began at home thanks to his father who was a microelectronics engineer and a pirate radio fanatic and at the age of eight years old he started sampling on his dad’s multitrack reeltapes and C64 using SID synthesis, making weird noise tracks.

During his teens and working at a local electronics shop he bought his first SL1200’s and began DJing and organising parties together with a group of friends. ZLK kept a very broad and versatile interest in all forms of electronic music and incorporated a computer and music software into his analog setup.

Being part of the collective ‘noxgenus‘, ZLK and the rest of the crew kept their music freely available for everyone by distributing it on cassettes, minidiscs, CDs and eventually on the internet. Releases on commercial vinyl and CD’s are rare, but some material has been exclusively released on FingersLTD, N.E.W., Kommando 6 and Simulacron.
