The road to becoming a DJ was paved for Kai from Southern Germany when he visited the OM Club in Madrid in 2004. He saw how the DJ was able to build up a vibe and play with the crowd. Being bored of his old life, with his friends who were already bound to work and family, he became deKai. Because of his affinity to heavy metal, deKai’s sound is hard and pushing. A fan describes his music as having the feeling of being chased by predators and running for your life. In the beginnings he played his techno at clubs in Ingolstadt, Munich, Augsburg, Regensburg and many other cities in Southern Germany. In 2009, he decided to take it a step further and moved to the birthplace of Techno, Berlin, with the intention to drive the crowds of the German Capital into ecstasy. The start in the new city was tough and deKai held himself above water with small jobs in construction and few bookings at Club Levee. After quite a while, he got offered a residency there and more and more clubs like Tresor, Magdalena, M.I.K.Z and Golden Gate wanted to have their share of the deKai sound, making him one of the hottest and most booked DJs in Berlin. One of the milestones along his way was a 10 hour set at Magdalena after which the cellar of the club got named after him. DeKai has come a long way. Since 2012 he is signed at Kiddaz FM and in 2014 he started his own label Ragnarök with Holgi Star. Artist like Holger Nielson, IXEL, Kenny B and Sven Sossong release tracks that will make you shiver. With gigs all over Berlin and Oktober 2014 even bookings in Stockholm, deKai is on his way to become the next promising DJ to bring Techno straight out of its birthplace into the rest of the world.
