Based mostly in Cologne, artist, DJ, producer and musician Glitterbug has spent the last decade in countless projects - from his legendary, epic DJ sets (with impeccable 3 turntable mixing skills), composing and producing club and film music, experimental radio play, creating video and audio installations to curating exhibitions, lectures and endless public events, Glitterbug's engine has been roaring with a multitude of platforms for creativity around the world and drawing his very special global fan base. Glitterbug started developing his unique musical racket and hum in the late 80's in illegal acid parties and continued in Cologne's experimental techno scene in the 90's, strongly infused with a deep love for gay house music, the early Chicago and the later Detroit sound. Combining the many worlds his feet tap in, Glitterbug has been trying to bring together new ideas, notions, content and emotions into new flavors that always are aimed at the heart.

Since 2003 Glitterbug has spent much of his time in Israel performing and helping develop the independent techno scene through artist exchanges, bookings and the esteemed 'c.sides festival for electronic music and new media art', which he co- initiated and co-curates since its beginning in 2004. When he is not stuck in his studio, he is busy with extensive international touring, playing as a DJ, performing his mesmerizing live act or performing the stunning joint audio-visual performance with Israeli photographer and video artist, Ronni Shendar. In 2008 Glitterbug released his debut album Supershelter that immediately won hearts at home, on the dance floor and the highest of critic's praise internationally. Supershelter has been applauded as a groundbreaking album by legendary personas of the music world, including album of the month November 2008 by acclaimed Groove magazine , "album of 2008" by Berlin's Steve Bug, and raving reviews in international key media. As Supershelter has brought a new sound to the club world, glitterbug promises many more exciting musical surprises for 2009/2010.
