Ahnst Anders was born in 1977 in Bonn and grew up somewhere in between the two cities of Cologne and Bonn. Ahnst Anders has always had a soft spot for music, especially for stylistic variety. He began work as an indie music DJ, moving onto techno, house and minimalist sounds. But after a while, he felt the urge to try out his skill with synthesizers.
The result of this effort can be found on his debut album "Dialogue" on the label "Pflichtkauf" from Aachen. It's a dialogue of different styles of music joining together.
