If you think of Germany's Rhine-Ruhr area you might perhaps think of closed coal-mines, football and beer in the first place, but these regions have far more to offer. Especially the electronic music scene between Düsseldorf and Dortmund is very vibrant and Moguai is definitely one of its most important representatives. Living in quiet Recklinghausen, the ardent local patriot visits the whole world from there and has still never contemplated about turning his back on his hometown. This is only one of the reasons which make the man who was born André Tegeler so likable. In the first place it has been and still is his musical success which has made Moguai one of the most popular DJs and producers of our time.
Moguai has always been and still is an important act. However, he is not only a DJ for the big events. He also mans the decks in clubs around the country and abroad. As far afield as England and South Africa Moguai creates an energetic party mood and fills the dance floors. The Producer To only see Moguai as a DJ would be a big mistake. In 1998 he had a top ten hit with "The Final", which he produced together with colleague Phil Fuldner. Other products, like for example his debut-EP "Best Before End", released in 1993, or the later "Dial M for Moguai" paved him the way to the top of Germany's best producers. Moguai also owns the record label PUNX which was launched in 2001. The first release, his own track "The Rock", turned the scene upside down. The follow-up "U know Y" became the most popular track on the Mayday festival and the top selling sold vinyl in Germany. Since this track was used for the Sugababes-single "In the middle", it has made an international breakthrough.
