    With more than 30 years experience as a DJ, label owner, promoter and ambassador of the arts, Sven Väth is one of the most important protagonists of German music culture and one of its most respected ambassadors abroad.


    Cool DJ Agency is thrilled to announce that Sven Väth, will coming to Beijing to play a very special show at Tango Club on Friday, February 22, 2013


    In honor of three decades spent behind the decks, the Cocoon founder will play a very special show in China. Sven Väth has always had a thing about themed parties—Cocoon's summer residencies at Amnesia, for instance, have gone through concepts like Disco Invaders, Freakshow and Party Animals, all of which come with photo shoots that show what good sports Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos can be. Much like the 10 Years of Cocoon motif from 2009, the concept behind Vath's trek across Asia is a commemorative one, honoring the three decades he's spent behind the decks. Based on alengthy post he wrote for Cocoon's website, the milestone seems to have put Vath in a nostalgic mood. "I can vividly recall when I heard Kraftwerk for the first time in 1981 at the Dorian Gray," he writes. "It literally blew my skullcap!"

    Sven Väth: The beat goes on...


    Ask a random person in Germany who they consider to be the most popular techno DJ, and you're likely to hear the name Sven Väth pretty quickly. Celebrating 30 years as a DJ in 2011, the Frankfurt-based Väth has inspired a plethora of myths and stories over the course of time. Whether it's the 40-hour long sets, the rumors about his spiritual trips to Asia or his part-time ascetic lifestyle, much of Sven Väth's legacy has always been built around the man himself.





    Hearsay aside, Sven Väth has undoubtedly played a crucial role in propagating both trance and techno music. At merely 18 years of age, he became a resident in Frankfurt's legendary Dorian Gray nightclub in 1982. After a brief and commercially successful stint alongside the Euro dance project OFF, he opened his first own club in 1988. Until its closure ten years later, the Omen became one of the most important techno clubs in Europe, inspiring a whole generation of producers. In addition to the club, Väth also guided Eye Q and Harthouse, two of the most popular labels in Germany throughout the '90s.
