André Galluzzi is born on July, 18th 1973 in Frankfurt/Main Germany.
1989 First appearance at the "Pie" in Erbenheim. Being 14, André works in the club behind the bar. The fact that the DJ was ill gives André the chance to fill the gap and changes his life forever.
1990/92 André has regular bookings in a nightcafé where everything can be heard, from Black Music, Art of Noise to the first House/Techno Sounds from the U.S. At the same time, he has bookings in Berlin's legendary "Bunker" and at the "M" in Mainz.
André works at the "Boy" record store in Frankfurt and has bookings in the whole Rhein-Main area. Additionally, he plays at the "Turbine" in Berlin as well as in other clubs in Berlin. At the end of 1994, he joins the Neuton label, where he gets in touch with Paul Brtschitsch. The latter organises Open Air Parties in Wiesbaden and became aware of André through his marathon-like sets. He also makes contact with promoters of the "Terra Uno" events, who are booking André regularly from now on. André is now resident DJ at the "Park Café" in Wiesbaden, plays at the "Dorian Gray" in Frankfurt and at parties like the "Holy-X-Mas Rave" and the "Euphoria". The first TAKSI record is released at the end of 1995, and Sven Vaeth immediately takes it on his playlist. After the Love Parade 1996, the names of the two TAKSI drivers are already familiar
1996/98 André moves to Berlin. The "Tresor" obligate him as Resident and his new booking agency, "Good Groove Booking" provides him with international bookings in Sweden, Canada, Turkey, in Holland und Switzerland. He releases on TAKSI, Ongaku and Force Inc. The very own TAKSI sound is created through André's experience in DJing in combination with Paul's technical abilities. The sounds range from dark and spacy to the carefree casualness of house-orientated music, from minimal-pounding and trippy to fat beats. It's not about simple tracks but songs. You don't find stupid drum-lines but real arrangements. Musical variety is surely the motto of the two TAKSI protagonists. Even without a visible audience, André knows how to excite people through his radio sets for Kiss FM, HR XXL, Sputnik and Fritz.
1999 until today The "Ostgut" catches André's attention and the corresponding ideas of club owner and DJ regarding music lead to a very fruitful collaboration. Since then, André's gigs at the "Ostgut" are highly acclaimed.
André's musical work is documented in seven TAKSI releases and the new album "Rundfahrt", for which André and Paul are currently doing some promo all over Europe. The last TAKSI release, "Schneesturm", even got the attention of Richie Hawtin: he licensed the track for his "Plus 8" label and contributed a remix.
However, the next release "Tango Erotica" proposes higher
