Adolf Noise aka Monaco Schranze aka Swahimi aka Dj Koze aka Stefan Kozella was born and raised 1972 in Flensburg, Germany.
After he moved to Hamburg in the early 90’s he founded his first HipHop group called “Fischmob“.
As time drew on Stefan faced up with electronic music and got more and more famous as Dj. Together with Erobique and Cosmic Dj he started his second project called “International Pony“. Till 2003, Dj Koze released many tracks and albums amongst others on the labels Kompakt, Get Physical or Circus Company. He already got his own record label called “Pampa Records“. I saw him unfortunately only once in 2008 but i hope to see him anytime again.
For me Dj Koze is the best electronic Dj from Germany for the last 20 years. His music belongs from HipHop till Techno and his experimental projects are still excellent and unbeaten. By the way “Koze” -> “Ko(t)ze” is the German word for vomit. Cheers.
