Based in the german City of Cologne (Köln) DJ Proton is spinning records since 1995. His style is best described as thrilling, pumping, banging hard Techno, but once you're on the dancefloor music speaks louder than words.
During Protons early years of Techno Jeff Mills was dominating the DJ and Producer polls, so after checking some playlists Detroit soon became a strong influence on the way Proton interpreted Techno and he started to travel around Germany to see DJs like Claude Young, Jay Denham, Juan Atkins, Derrick May or Jeff Mills himself on the rare occasions they played.
Detroit had more to offer. Not only the sound, but also the thoughts and concepts of Mike Banks from Underground Resistance, dealing with topics as independence from Major-Labels and criticism of goverment indoctrination impressed Ex-Punker Proton sustainable and encouraged him to become a DJ himself.
