The 37 year-old Bernese André Forrer is better known under his pseudonym DJ Mind-X. The successful DJ started his career in 1990 in Berne and he counts as one of the top elite of Swiss DJs now. In his 20 year DJ career he bought over 11,500 LPs, which the German label K7! even says he's overtaken many international stars with his stock of "black gold".
Already in 1988 Mind-X went to his first parties in Berne. Be it Gangloff, Gurten or Dampfzentrale, later on Stufenbau, the young man was always on the scene. Thanks to DJ Boumi B, a forerunner of the Bernese scene, Mind-X started to find more enthusiasm for this type of music. Not only the music grabbed him, he was also more and more fascinated about mixing it. Even today, Mind-X sees mixing as a way to send people off onto a journey to another world with his sound. After he had organized the first own parties together with friends and also fascinated the people around Berne with his music, he could also do bigger events at the Dreieck (Thun) and show-off his mixing talent. As fate would have it, one day he got to know a founder of the event organizer Inka Imperio. So after his first event in 1993 at the Bernese Aarebar he started his big DJ carrier at Inka Imperio Parties.
Meanwhile, DJ Mind-X counts as one of the most booked DJs in Switzerland. There are no major events without him (Energy, Motion, Evolution, Goliath, Atlantis, Futurescope, Warcraft, etc.). He also counts as resident DJ in major clubs like OXA Zurich, GATE ONE Berne, MAD Lausanne and NACHTWERK Thun. The latter even under his own concepts named "Harem Nights" or "Mind-X meets Snowman". His international break-through was thanks to the hit singles "Nightingale" and "Never talk to Aliens" that were distributed by Overdose/EMI. Since this moment, his bookings go far beyond the Swiss border. To name a few: Tarmcenter Cologne, X-tra Koblenz, Reaktor Buehl, Paramount Park Frankfurt, E.D. Elephant Singen, Webster Hall New York, Shadow Lounge Miami and Space Ibiza. He also had appearances in countries like Norway, Spain, Israel, Austria, France and Italy.
But the enthusiastic Bernese DJ doesn't just rest on his laurels. He also regularly produces his own singles like the remake of Men at Work's "Down Under", "Nightingale", "Never talk to Aliens", "Voyage", "Colours", "Oasis and many more. Mind-X launched two further successful projects: KARUMA (Netrecord-Z/BPM/Platipus) with DJ Tandu aka AYLA and HAREM DOCTORS with Ray Boyé. Both were big international club successors and brought him credibility at home and abroad.
DJ Mind-X also began with the compilation of his own albums. After "Inspirations", "Sensitive" and "Colours of Life", which all reached Peak # Top 20 on the Compilation Charts, he reached Peak # 8 with the versus project with DJ Noise ("Nightrockers") on the Swiss Media Control Charts.
But now we have 2010. Another big year for the workaholic DJ from Berne:
Out now the new album Godfathers by Mind-X, Snowman, Dream and DJ Noise in collaboration with Universal Music and a lot of participations with national Clubs in a big club tour...
