Biography

Limit Is The Sky - The motto that Sven Kirchhof has been living by since his first single of the same title.

As one of Laidback Luke’s protégées, the Frankfurt-native has paved his way within the past 2 years as one of the top rising German Producers and DJs, as well as being recognized internationally.

Sven already began experimenting with turntables and synthesizers since the ripe young age of 14. By 16, he had released his first studio production, taking the first step towards his future in music.

In 2009 Sven was able to catch the attention of none other than Dutch house music giant, Laidback Luke, who not only booked him for his famous "Super You & Me" tour, but also released Sven’s single, “Limit Is the Sky” on his own label, Mixmash Records. The track placed in the top 30 of the Beatport Progressive House charts and Sven has been mentioned more than once as an artist to watch in Luke’s interviews.

However, Laidback Luke is not the only one who has taken notice.

Subsequent releases on Steve Aoki’s "Dim Mak" and a remix for the US band Switchfoot released on Atlantic Records soon followed after his first release with Mixmash.

Recently having achieved the no. 3 spot on the Beatport Charts for Chris Kaeser's "Shes Playing On U!", Sven broke onto the scene with international status.

As an established member of the Mixmash Records family, Sven can look back on an impressive Portfolio.

Among releases that followed on major labels such as Spinnin, Armada, Anjunabeats, Sony Music, Capitol Records, Vicious or Be Yourself, he also worked on regular collaborations with artists such as Grammy-nominated Richard Vission, Quilla, and Nuthin Under A Million.

Most notable however, were the remixes to follow for some of the top acts in the business, including Hardwell, Laidback Luke, Arty, Oliver Twizt, Angger Dimas, Zoe Badwi, Stefan Dabruck, as well as Pop acts Pitbull and famed Lady Gaga producer Cherry Cherry Boom Boom. Recently, Sven has finished an official remix for Disney and his productions have gained steady support from Hardwell, Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Afrojack and Tiesto.

Aside from all the productions, at the beginning of 2012, Sven secured a Residency at the legendary Frankfurt Cocoon Club, playing alongside DJ heavyweights Axwell, Fedde Le Grand and Bingo Players, to name a few. Playing at Cocoon with mentor Laidback Luke was not only a special moment for Sven, but also for the crowd, as their musical force together created unforgettable nights. During his “away games” at international shows, such as Cologne’s Bootshaus, Jimmy Woo in Umag/Croatia, Amsterdam’s Undercurrent, and the 3001 in Duesseldorf, he was able to quickly turn up the crowd’s energy into a home game experience through his infectious sound. Sven was also able to win over the crowds at local clubs such as Velvet, Adlib and King Kamehameha.

In 2013, Sven’s career reached a few milestones. First to note was playing the Mainstage at Croatia’s Umagination Festival alongside both Martin Solveig and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike followed shortly by the highlight of becoming the first German Prog. House DJ to play at Ultra Music Festival Europe at the Poljud Stadium in Split.

With an outstanding quality delivered consistently, fuelled by his pure passion for music, it has only just begun for Sven and the limits are nowhere in sight.
