Since the age of 8 Cihan Otun, better known as Kurd Maverick, concerned himself with music. At that time Kurd was a part of a band where he already programmed songs on a Korgworkstation and presented them live on various stages all over Europe. In the early 90’s the techno-movement finally hit Kurd Maverick and consequently it was something completely new to him. Fascinated by the movement, especially by the Love Parade and the Poison Club in Düsseldorf he made his acquaintance also with house music. From this moment on it was clear where his musical journey would lead him for the future. Numerous dj shows followed until he moved back to his studio where he began to produce house music for the first time. One of his first releases, produced under his artist name “Kurd Maverick”, generated so much attention, that he decided to keep this name.
