From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Westbam, also known as Maximillian Lenz (born 4 March 1965 in Münster, Westphalia) was one of the most successful and popular rave techno DJs in Germany.

He started his career as a DJ in 1983 in his birthcity Münster. In 1984 he moved to Berlin where he released his first record called 17 - This is not a Boris Becker Song which was coproduced by Klaus Jankuhn. He was playing at the first Love Parade rave party at 1989 in Ku'damm Berlin. Around that time, the DJ culture made a breakthrough in Germany. After several records he released his first album named The Cabinet. In 1991 he organised the first Mayday-Rave in Berlin. With over 5000 people, it was the biggest Techno-Party in Germany at the time. Since then Mayday has been a lynchpin in the German Techno Scene. Westbam is still an organiser of the party, and he is also a part of Members of Mayday, the producer of the Mayday-Anthems.

In 1997 he released his first book titled Mixes, Cuts & Scratches. It deals with the art, the work and the life of a DJ.

He is the founder of the record label Low Spirit.

In 2005 he released a new album Do You Believe In The Westworld with first single Bang The Loop.
