That was around 2002 and he was already digging to the deepest roots of Dance Music, listening
from contemporary techno down to Kraftwerk. His first performance was in 2009 and since then
he realized this would be his life path, however it was only in 2013 that he really could express
himself and start to carve his on way on music creation. A lot of effort was put into it and in 2016
Waltervelt was born.

unimagined boundaries, consequently getting support from some of top tier talents like Maceo
Plex, Solomun, DJ Hell, Raxon, Zombies in Miami and Joris Vorn, between other relevant names.
