On his 17th Birthday, Dieter a.k.a. “Sin Plomo” was given a birthday present by his father that he knew would have a great impact on his life, an enormous collection of records. From the Rolling Stones to Led Zepplin, The Who and Elvis, to old German “hit list” features, there was a bit of everything in there. At the age of 18, both he and his father opened up a club in the German town of Rosenheim. It was at that point, that Sin Plomo finally realized that he was to be a DJ. In the coming years, almost every night he pleased his audiences with a huge variety of styles, helping him to acquire of one of a DJ’s most crucial skills, the feeling for the audience.
In 1988, when Dieter first came to Ibiza, all he wanted was a couple of days off, but at once he fell in love with the magical island, the fanatic crowds and the abundant musical potential. As a perfect platform for new talents and hues in music, Ibiza now had a new tenant. Dieter became resident DJ of the exclusive Ibiza underground club “KM 5” in the summer of 97, and as “Sin Plomo” pushed his weight in the year of KM 5’s first major hype.
After the Spanish record label “House D’ârret” signed him in 1998, they put out his first release, a self-gathered and mixed compilation for the KM 5, which brought Sin Plomo (Spanish for “unleaded”) and one of his productions “Wake up” to MANUMISSION’s attention. With the coming of the Millenium he celebrated his second release “Platinum”, which earned well deserved respect and success. “KM 5-Beats” Vol. 3 and Vol. 4, released on Virgin Rec., followed in 2000 and 2001.
But Sin Plomo is by far more than just a gifted DJ. In 1999 he met Torsten Stenzel, owner of “Magic Island Studios” in Ibiza. This was another turning point in Sin Plomo’s life. Gradually, Torsten a.k.a. “The Master of Trance” developed a serious affection for Sin Plomo’s interpretation of house music, and so the two produced several tracks and RMX’s like Bebel Gilberto’s “Sem Contencao” or Timmy Thomas’ “Why can’t we live together”, just to mention a few.
In recent years Sin Plomo was spinning in every major Ibiza club, while during off-season he toured Europe to present his “Balearic Beats” to a wider audience. For season 2000 he was in musical charge of the “SPACE’s” Sunday gathering “The Home” and season 2001’s “We love sunday…”, until he became Space’s resident DJ in 2002, earning him the possibility to go back to his roots and spin various styles, while alternately performing in the Club and Space’s exclusive outdoors area.
This also included being the resident DJ for MANUMISSION’s legendary afterhour-partys “Carry On” in the summers of 2001 and 2002, as well as gracing Wednesday’s “In bed with Space” in 2002. It was this summer, when he celebrated the Ibiza-wide release of his first fully self-produced album “Different ways to dance”.
In summer 2003 he released on CHICA DISCOS, a new label founded in Ibiza, the album/compilation “CHICA DISCOS VOL. 1”, which was a big success, so that it was already sold out after two months. The first release on Chica Discos was “Breathing Fire, produced by Sin Plomo and Torsten Stenzel with vocalist Casey Keth, who received worldwide recognition due to his latest 12” Soulkeeper on Ministry Of Sound.
Also to mention is his project he did for “AVERNA”, the Italian digestive, a lounge compilation called “Avernaffairs”. For the promotion he toured in spring and fall 2003.
In April 2004 Sin Plomo released “CHICA DISCOS VOL. 2” and did a clubtour throgh Europe.
In 2004 he also released a “jj florex remix” of his track “It´s you” on Tommy Boy Rec. for the American market and on Stereo Cool for the Iberian market. With his track “African stomper” Sin Plomo released on Stereo Production (the successful label of Chus & Ceballos) one of the best sold and most played production on the label.
Following the success of “Chica Diso Vol. 1” and “Chica Disco Vol. 2” Sin Plomo will release together with Superlounger in May 2005 “Chica Disco Vol. 3”, presenting a variety of exclusive tracks from the island along with a sophisticated selection of the best in sexy, funky and tribal house music. The compilation includes a loungy bonus CD by Superlounger and 5 exclusive new tracks, produced by Sin Plomo and Torsten Stenzel (Chilly Marry, The Ministers of Music, Daniels & Plomo and Superlounger). The release is was follewd by a clubtour through Europe from April to June.
