Born in 1983 in a small town near Frankfurt, Basti grew up in an idyllic family oasis. The little hero realized very soon that he seemed to be different than the other kids. While the others were building sand castles, Basti put on headphones and listened to groovin' Reggae tracks on his fatherís stereo system. Soon he started changing the sounds with the EQ's. He discovered his love for music and began to "structure the heights".
