DJ Mandarin was born in 1983 in Ludwigsburg and grew up in Marbach (near Neckar) where he started his career as a DJ. From 2004 to 2010 he went to the Turkish Riviera Antalya and worked in renowned 5-star hotels such as: [Aspendos Beach Hotel (2005), Club Nena Hotel (2006) and Royal Dragon Hotel (2009)] as a sound & light employee. He soon discovered that just playing music from other people is not enough for him, so he decided to get into music production himself. Now he's able to introduce his first production, the single "8qm" together with his production partner Riottech. There is also an album in progress.
