If this were sports, André Tegeler would be running long distance. Spanning the past two decades, steadily keeping track of his master plan, he continues to deliver trendsetting, Gold and Platinum award-winning productions, while others content themselves with the occasional sprint. Alias MOGUAI, he has long established himself as one of the internationally most renowned German DJs and producers, a true pioneer in the field of electronic music, always incorporating multiple styles in his work, yet keeping the complex simple and danceable.
Born in the Ruhr area, now based in Berlin, MOGUAI made his way from the underground raves of the early ‘90s to playing the legendary Berlin Love Parade for a crowd of 750,000. He meanwhile does an approximate 120 shows per year on the world’s leading stages, festivals included. In light of numerous star-studded collaborations (with the likes of Fatboy Slim, Sebastian Ingrosso, Tommy Trash, KASKADE, Benni Benassi, Tiësto and more recently Robin Schulz) and timeless productions/remixes for Moby, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Underworld, Fischerspooner, DIDO or Beyoncé, MOGUAI has persistently and relentlessly raised the bar for his peers, albeit never losing sight of the dance floor.
For the past 11 years MOGUAI has been on-air with his weekly 1Live “DJ Session” as well as his “Punx Up The Volume” radio show, broadcasting to over 35 countries (with an estimated 3.5 million listeners). His shows are among the leading formats of the electronic music scene. In 2002 he released his breakthrough hit “U Know Y” via his own imprint PUNX. From 2008 through 2015 he landed ten #1’s on Beatport, while 15 of his productions entered the Top 10. In his groundbreaking work the internationally acclaimed tastemaker fuses the best of electro house, indie dance and techno. He released two full-length albums on Deadmau5’ label Mau5trap, namely “We Are Lyve” (2010) and “Mpire” (2012), before landing his biggest hit to date in 2014, alongside Belgian siblings Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike with “Mammoth” (100 million YouTube streams & Beatport ‘Track of the Year).
