His first major contribution to the scene started as a lead singer of Switzerland's popular and very-first R&B/Pop boyband "4tonite", which saw him win numerous talent competitions across Switzerland and Germany, and even provided him with the opportunity to support major acts, such as 112, Lumidee, Naturally 7 and Solange Knowles (Beyoncé's sister). After 9 years of endless highs and lows in the music industry, the group parted ways back in 2004 on a friendly basis.
Over the years, DJ Soulchild has developed himself into a self-made entrepreneur and icon on the Swiss R&B scene, not only by shaking up clubs across Europe as a well-respected DJ and thus earning his title as "The R&B King" with his selectively picked and unmistakably smooth sets, but also as a successful Event Manager / Artist Manager & Promoter / Booking Agent / Songwriter / Co-Producer / Remixer. The latter has even gained him airplay success in the UK with the support of major radio stations, such as BBC1Xtra, Kiss FM, Galaxy FM, SolarRadio, Hot 92 FM, Aston FM and Oxford 107.9 FM. If you're living in Switzerland, you'll have heard his interviews and hot mixtapes aired on Radio 105 Dope!, Radio X and Radio Basel 1 and Radio Rottu, seen him appear on TV stations such as Sat1, StarTV, TeleBasel and Tele24 or read about him in numerous leading international and national magazines and newspapers. In June 2008 the UK's no.1 selling Urban Lifestyle magazine TOUCH even published a full article in honour of his achievements.
What was once a dead and dried up Black Music scene in his hometown of Basel, has finally been revived over the past few years, thanks to DJ Soulchild's legendary party series “Soul Boutique”, “SoSoFresh”, “Like Woah!” and “Urban Lounge”, which he organizes as the co-owner of BraviRagazzi Entertainment, along with his partner and close friend Jay. The main focus of these events, is to introduce Basel to the freshest new and classic Urban sounds within a safe club atmosphere and simultaneously provide overseas exposure and performances for todays current and tomorrows up-and-coming R&B/Hip-Hop stars, as well as some of the world's best DJ's.
2009 was another big year for “Soulcheeezy”, as he is lovingly called by his friends and followers, with over 80 gigs in Switzerland and across the globe within this period, making him one of the countries most popular and sought-after DJ's of his genre. He has come a long way and looks back proudly, but humbly on his hard-earned success. But rest assured that this is only just the beginning – DJ Soulchild is here and he's here to stay. Watch out for some big and exciting new projects emerging in 2010...
