at the beginning mick was addicted to techno and trance, until the mid of the 90ies. fascinated by all the djs and vinyls of these years he started in 1993 to spin the turntables. then he was more and more excited and touched by house sounds. small gigs brought him first experiences with the technical aspects of “djing” and in contact with the crowd. at this time he already recognised that this new way of live will take a lot of time but will bring him extraordinary joy and pleasure.
his first resident job he got on accident: first he should just do the warm-up for dj tanith from berlin. due to the fact that dj tanith did not show up mick got the chance to convince the crowd of his talents the whole night long. quickly he got the offer for doing the resident in the, at this time, well-known and prestigious cave-club in salzburg. more gigs in austria and in the south of germany were following: ahead his residency in the legendary tribeclub (loft/salzburg), in the viennese “meierei”, in the “babenberger Passage”, in the “villa” in traunstein (at that time the gigolo homebase of dj hell) and the “funky kitchen” in munich are big prosperities. however he has to do what every music-addicted have to do: not only playing music but also producing their own sounds.
in the beginning of 2001 he starts to work on his first production together with the tribeclub-founder and producer gerald peklar (force sense music/hamburg). Besides establishing a friendship they both create the track “take me now or never” which wins over with his composition, and belongs to the deep/vocal house style. after this big and unexpected success of the first single, it was more than 10times licensed for European compilations, mick thammer worked on his second release together with christian hornbostel (soulfuric/usa). "free your soul" enters lots of charts and playlists of top house djs in europe. amongst others the track was licensed for the ibiza compilation "balearic sundown session vol.1".
mick’s activities as producer and remixer don’t remain unnoticed internationally. consequently he is not only playing regularly in Germany (climax/stuttgart, u60311/frankfurt, prinzip & palais club/münchen, mach1/nürnberg, terminal 1/dresden, nachtcafe/leipzig, villadrei/mannheim...) and austria (circoloco tour austria/cembrankeller 2007 & 2008, rave on snow/saalbach-hinterglemm, republic/salzburg, babenberger passage, sass, meierei & club hochriegl/wien, dom im berg/graz, beluga & remembar/linz...), but also in spain (privilege/ibiza, virtual/mallorca...) and slovenia (klup lipa/ljubljana, imperius/izlake...). while the earlier productions belong more to deep/vocal/disco house, the releases from the third one onwards are getting definitely harder and more electronic.
After "we are all one", a minimal groove monument named „sweep“ is following in cooperation with peklar`n`brauns. The rough-mix of "sweep" was not only heavily praised by djs like loco dice, ricardo villalobos and florian meindl, but they also play it regularly. interested folks can prelisten the rough-mix of „sweep“ on mick thammer’s myspace. the release of “sweep” is planned for 2008. also expected in 2008, his next loony track called "before after".
