Optimus Drums

Born in 1982, i started doing first steps in playing drums at the age of 4. First i used pots in my grandma's kitchen but i got my first drumkit quickly as my talent was discovered.
I continiued playing drums at school and practiced a lot at home playing to songs from Michael Jackson and Police - Limp Bizkit, Blink 182, System of a Down later.
After playing in various Bands in my hometown, i started playing Solo with Djs in Clubs. Its a lot of fun playing impulsively to a Dj's liveset. I dont know, what song comes next and had to feel possible breaks/pauses. I had the idea of doing this a long time ago. I love the sound of acoustic drums in house/electro/hiphop music. I'm always looking for new challenges. Lately i started playing drums with rapper/MC's and started a Metal-Project..

In 2014 i started teaching Drums on a local musicschool - 2016 i became self-imployed as a Drumteacher and professional Drummer. Since October 2016 i am supported by Soultone Cymbals as well.
Music clips and more live shows are next on the list !
