- Naked Pilotz


The year 2007: A warm summer evening in August. In the course of a surprise goodbye-party for Bernd, Wolfgang and Felix were responsible for the musical arrangements of the night. Without further ado a computer and an old 2-Channel Mixer were set up. The NakedPilotz were born. To that time nobody could imagine something "serious" were to follow quickly from this one gig. Driven by the passion for electronic music and the magical feeling to make people dance to the music coming from their "turntables", various first steps were made in the following years. Every free minute was used to try and test new ideas, to purchase first equipment, and to read and exchange news amongst one another. Time went by and in March 2008, after Bernd returned from his year abroad, the three were reunited. From then on, they almost met daily in Bernd's basement to practice and try out new things. It took months until they were able to finally demonstrate their skills for the first time at the "Technotika und Sonic-Warrior DJ-Contest" on the 28th of August 2008 in the notorious Vinylbar in Frankfurt am Main. Due to the lack of experience, a 2nd place was the result of months of work. This success, however, opened them the doors to several clubs in the Rhein-Main area. It was not long until their next gig in the "U60311" followed. Since then they have constantly continued developing their sound. In search of the perfect setup they not only altered their equipment several times, but their sound continues to evolve so that today one can speak of a unique "Pilotz-Sound". Today they combine a 4-Deck-Play with many live elements into an impulsive sound, which, together with their distinctive outfits, will guarantee a special experience.
