As a keyfigure of early german Techno, EBM-Techno and Acid, Thomas P. Heckmann has shaped the landscape of electronic music since his very beginning ! His huge success as DRAX LTD.II - AMPHETAMINE, KNARZ - TANZMASCHINE, SILENT BREED - SYNC IN, WELT IN SCHERBEN, EXIT 100 aso. set standards and beyond in the under- and overground ! His legendary collection of instruments and rarities are always a guaranty for new sounds and far out experiments that are far away from mainstream ! His live- and DJ-sets are classics and more Rock'N'Roll than anything else and his vocal tracks Tanzmaschine and Kind Der Nacht have developed a massive following and fan base and are more like concerts than gigs !
With his labels AFU Limited (gave big ups to Popof, Butch, Felix Bernhardt, Lowkey & Kardinal aso.), AFULAB, Trope Recordings and Wavescape aso. he is continuing his innovative way and leads the paths for other musicians from France, Japan, Russia, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Sweden who all release on his labels !
His latest collaboration with his long time mate G-Man (ex LFO) has brought a new 12 inch recently called Drive Inn EP and he's just about to release a new series of records in 2012, starting with AFUltd.38 Heckmann - Glitter & Tand.
