O'Jay biography

Born in Berlin in February 15th, 1965. He studied photography starting at the age of 16. At 18, the hip-hop movement caught his attention and he made his first trip to New York. He learned how to do 'pop-locking' from street-dancers and began to write, produce and of course rap. In 1990 he became the rapper et co-producer of Real McCoy. He also co-produced and co-wrote Maxx' album To The Maxximum under the pseudonym of Dawhite. In 1999 he left the group because he had different opinions about Real McCoy's new musical trends. He says he is very disappointed with the orientation they took.

He began playing tennis when he was 14 and has practiced kendo for the past few years. He loves all kind of sports and loves to watch the championships. Currently, he enjoys working on his computer and playing computer games. He has 3 cats called Calico, Cindy and O'Malley. Most importantly, O-Jay wants to stay healthy and and keep in good spirits. Eventually, he wants to be able to spend more time with his family and to make a family on his own. 

2000 : he came back on the Eurodance scene as a solo artist, with a single he wrote and composed in memory of his father. Entitled Nite To Remember, it was released on April 2000 and 'it brought back the sound of one of the pioneers in dance music' as O'Jay describes it. The female vocalist featured on this track is called Franziska. O'Jay also decided to slightly modify his name : now he is O-Jay.com, becoming the first artist in the world with an internet URL as a artistname. For therealization of his first album, he collaborated with many other well-known personalities of the Eurodance world : he'd been working for about 2 years with Gary B (ex-rapper of Maxx), and Vanessa Mason (his former partner of Real McCoy) appears as guest vocalist.

2005 : O-jay has been producing many very succesful artists under his label Blue PM. They also did a lot of remixes, for instance for ATC, Rollergirl, Right Said Fred, Jeanette, etc. He still collaborates with Boris Köhler (Gary B). He is currently working on 3 new projects for this year, and 2 Dance oriented groups are in the making. Results will be on the market in March/April this year.

2006 : O-jay was featured by the project Ich Troje (their name means The Three of Them in Polish) for the single Follow My Heart, that will represent Poland at the Eurovision contest. Ich Troje had already represented Poland back in 2003. In March, 2006 Follow My Heart was released as one-track single under the label EMI Poland. Ich Troje presented their song on the 18th of May, but were not selected for the final.
