About Hans Nieswandt: As soon as 13, 14 years old, Hans Nieswandt tried to take control of the sound system during school parties as well as of the music pages in the school paper. First payed for playing dance music in a public nightclub in 1983: early Rap, Dance and New Wave in the southern provinces of Germany. Moved to Hamburg in the mid 80s. Hit hard by Acid, Deep and Garage House in the late 80s, thus inspired to become a proper mix DJ. Since the early 90s Hans Nieswandt is traveling around with his record box, mainly playing his unique mix of Disco, House and Techno, but you can ask for special services ... such as late 60s Westcoast Baroque Pop.
While always playing in Punk and artsy kind of New Wavy dancy pop groups as a teenager in the early 80s, Hans Nieswandt created his first successful project in the early 90s. With Eric D. Clark and Justus Köhncke, he founded Whirlpool Productions, eventually becoming (sur)real popstars in Italy in 1997 with their Number One Hit “From: Disco To Disco:”. After four albums, this project was put on ice in the year 2000. Besides, Hans Nieswandt released two solo albums, “Lazer Muzik” in 1999 and “The True Sound Center” in 2004 as well as numerous remixes for national and international artists from many fields. A collection of his remix work has been released in 2011 on Hamburg label Bureau B.
