It all started out with an old PC and a borrowed synthesizer. When Dapayk, alias Niklas Worgt, at age 15 first started playing around in his own studio it soon became his second home. Obsessed with the idea of bringing together his favourite music styles from the early 90ies in his productions, his journey led him from Drum’n Bass to House and finally to Techno. Playing ping pong with all those different styles and the fact that he wasn’t willing to commit to just one of them, led to the typical Dapayk sound: groovy, edgy and different. With releases on labels such as Stil vor Talent, Herzblut and his own mothership Mo’s Ferry Prod., Dapayk has proven his up to dateness for over a decade. With 7 LP releases and over 50 single releases under his belt, he is one of the main protagonists in the world of electronic music.
He was able to expand his abilities as a producer with his own projects, such as Dapayk& Padberg or Marek Bois. And when it’s time to get the best out of their tracks in the studio, he is also is the man to count on for other artists like Monika Kruse, Marcel Knopf or Kleinschmager Audio.Dapayk and his Mo’s Ferry Crew are succesfully staging the I Love Vinyl Open Air to make a statement for their big love- the “black beauty”.
Since Niklas has been a wordtraveller with his live act for many years, he knows just what a good party needs. He’s using this knowledge to create a unique atmosphere at his festival which is appreciated by more and more guests and fans each year.
