Ata's main job is actually not the production of electronic music, but to cultivate, to develope and to live it. He started in the early 90's as a DJ in Frankfurt/Main in the rising german - and special Frankfurt-based - house and techno-scene and played on many good parties and in actually every good club in the town and around. At the same time he worked together with Heiko Schäfer aka Heiko M/S/O at the Boy Recordstore in Frankfurt. After quitting their jobs there, in 1992 both founded the leading german recordstore for electronic music in the mid-90's, the Delirium. The shop was also the office for their three labels Ata started together with Heiko in September 1993: Ongaku, Klang Elektronik and Playhouse. With the development of special the Playhouse-label he influenced the german and worldwide electronic music in a huge way - and does it still.
Beside his DJ-activities he founded the first 'real' clubnight in Frankfurt for modern house and deep-house - the Wild Pitch Club at the Nachtleben-Club. After years of extasy and parties he closed the concept an opened, one year later in 1999, the Robert-Johnson in the neighbourhood of Frankfurt, in Offenbach. Through the DJ's he booked, his own DJ-sets and the club itself he made the Robert-Johnson to one of the most important clubs worldwide for electronic music.
