- Andre Walter


André Walter started his career as a producer in the early eighties. Influenced by bands like Skinny Puppy, Cabaret Voltaire, Nitzer Ebb and the artist Isao Tomita, André started to to experimentalize with his first audio tools (Atari 1040ST) and tracks. During that period, he made the acquaintance of folks from Giessen like Toni Rios, Marco Cannata and Tommy Bingel, the director of the record store Downtown Records. From that time on he evolved to a frequently requested producer supporting various musicians, Dj`s and artists. Andrés first releases were published on the famous labels Harthouse (as “Holocube”), Eye-Q (as “Aquaform”), Kick Down, Fucking Loud and Universal Prime Breaks. In 1994 André ran into Chris Liebing at the popular record store Downtown Records in Giessen, where famous Dj`s and acts had their meeting point. Visitors during that period of time were Pascal F.E.O.S., Toni Rios, Frank Lorber and several other nameable acts. From that day on, every Chris Liebing Release was influenced and produced by André Walter. To create a stage for his own tracks and productions, André Walter, Tommy Bingel, Toni Rios and Chris Liebing launched their own label SOAP Records. Andrés pseudonyms were “Noosa Heads" (in cooperation with Chris Liebing) and "E.H.R." (featuring Chris Liebing and Toni Rios). Besides the well working cooperation with Chris Liebing, André also produced tracks with Monika Kruse, Thomas Krome, Moguai, Umek, Marshall Jefferson, Massimo, Gayle San, Al Faris, Marco Cannata and Frank Lorber. In 1998 André began to intensify the coproduction with Chris Liebing besides the SOAP project. Within a short period of time the newly created labels AUDIO, CLR and CLAU advanced to "most-wanted-brands” and global players like Primat e, Int ec or Ground were hiring t he duo to produce songs and remixes for several artists. André`s disposition for the deep and gloomy and his passion for horror movies had a deep impact on the AUDIO follow-up-project STIGMATA, which has played a major role in t he development of modern t echno. With STIGMATA André could not only show his almost endless pool of creativity, but also his passion for myth and cabalistic writing. The extraordinary prolific cooperation with Chris Liebing resulted in the winning of the “Best Producer Award” at the German Dance Awards 2001, followed by countless successful product ions like t he concept ual Chris Liebing record “Evolution”, Remixes of “Blood Angel” by John Starlight, “Sunglasses at Night” by Tiga, "Breakthru" by Sven Vath and “Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes, to name but a few. André always breaks new ground and put s innovat ion int o pract ice.
