His productions “Doppelgänger” and “Another Joy” succeeded likewise in entering the German Media Control Charts Top 100. In Belgium “Doppelgänger” ranked among the Top 20 in the Billboard Charts.

This track developed into a Clubburner in spring 2004 and reached the Top 5 of the DDC charts. After numerous bookings and TV appearances (e.g. VIVA Club Rotation) the track was also successfully released in several countries, like Spain, Italy, England, Singapore, Japan, etc…

In Fall 2004 Media Records released the second single “Don´t Be Afraid Of Tomorrow”. This Track rocked the DDC Charts even more by climbing up to position #3. Appearances in TV (VIVA Club Rotation), radio-stations (e.g. Sunshine Live) and numerous bookings were the pleasant result.

After intensive work on his new productions, now his first album called “No Way Out” is going to hit the stores, which will thrill not only his fans! Also on the new album: The meanwhile worldwide classic bomb “Pulverturm”, which represents the link between present and past.

A new Niels van Gogh is born: ripe, modern, stylish – however unmistakably in his elementary arrangements. Ingenious productions, framed into a perfect Intro and Outro, spoil the ears and inspire your senses. Danceable tracks meet chilly grooves, touched by melodic elements – a breathtaking experience in contemporary electronic music.

Indications are very good and we are curious about how the album will develop…
