My name is Benjamin Meyer and I was born in Solingen, Germany, in 1987.

After passing my A-levels I studied engineering at the senior technical college in Cologne and got my bachelor´s degree in 2013.

From an early age on I have been interested in deejaying and producing my own music. Meanwhile I can look back on eight years of experience as a DJ and I have been working as a producer for six years now.

During this time I have mainly used the DAW program FL Studio and various plug-in instruments, among them Nexus, Sylenth1, Massive, Kontakt and Spire. By focusing on this special kind of software I was able to acquire the necessary expertise and professionalism.

My favorite genres are Dance and Electro, but I also like producing Big Room and other genres. At the moment I´m working for the Dance and Electro collabo Solid&Sound; our first single will be released by the end of 2014/early 2015.

I´m a passionate instructor for music productions and have been a devoted guitar tutor for many years.

But as my main focus lies with electronic music, I would like to pass on my knowledge in this field.

______________

Mein Name ist Benjamin Meyer und wurde 1987 in Solingen, Deutschland geboren.

Nach der Schule habe ich das Studium zum Bachelor of Engineering als Wirtschaftsingenieur an der RFH Köln absolviert.

Schon früh begeisterte ich mich für das DJing und das Produzieren eigener Musik. Inzwischen habe ich rund 8 Jahre Erfahrung als DJ und bin seit 6 Jahren als Produzent tätig.

Dabei habe ich hauptsächlich mit dem DAW-Programm FL Studio und verschiedenen Plugin-Instrumenten, darunter Nexus, Sylenth1, Massive, Kontakt, und Spire gearbeitet. Dadurch war es möglich, mir einen sicheren und professionellen Umgang mit der Software anzueignen.

Meine bevorzugten Genres sind Dance und Electro, aber auch Big Room oder andere Genres produziere ich sehr gerne.

Derzeit bin ich als Produzent bei der Dance und Electro Collabo Solid&Sound aktiv. Der erste Single Release ist geplant für Ende 2014.

Ich arbeite sehr gerne in erklärenden Tätigkeiten und bin leidenschaftlicher Trainer für Musikproduktion. Erfahrungen habe ich viele Jahre als Gitarren-Lehrer sammeln dürfen. Da mein Focus aber auf der elektronischen Musik liegt, möchte ich mein Wissen nun in diesem Bereich vermitteln.
