Based in Berlin, swub is a DJ and music composer mainly in the field of audiovisual performances, live cinema and video productions.
Inspired by his long-time passion about jazz music, he started to mix early his favourite records in the local bar next door in the end of the 90ties. Finally, he was one of the founders of the travelling jazz party “Chew-Chew-Club”, which toured successfully from 2002 to 2006 through many different German clubs.
