His mileu perceives Andry Nalin as the creative workaholic, in business and for his DJ-colleagues he ist he impersonation of the determined artist, and to the worlwide community of his fans he is a living legend with a tremendous output. To think that these features are irreconcilable is the first step to getting closer to the phenomenon called Nalin. His national and international success of more than ten years is best understood by tracing the road he took from his birthplace Düsseldorf to his ranking among the international DJ-elite. It was a road away from the usual career, a new way that opened doors for other DJ's and at the same time set new standards. Since 1993, Andry Nalin has newly defined the art of DJing, the sounds of club hits and the buisness as such, giving it a very personal and inimitable quality: It's The Nalin Way.
When, in 1996, Nalin & Kane were composing their worldwide hit "Beachball", Andry had, together with his then partner Kane, already published several successful 12inches under the pseudonyms Nalin Inc. and Yellow Cab. His name was synonymous with a fresh approach in the field of housemusic. The "Andry Nalin style" became a genuine trademark that had a vital impact on the then booming european housemusic scene. Andry's gigs as a DJ have since the mid-ninetees lead him into all the international top class clubs such as "Space" on Ibiza, "Twilo" in New York or "Pacha" in Buenos Aires, as well as to the major regulars and festivals as e.g. "Renaissance" or "Mayday". Whether in Asia, North and South America, Australia or Europe - the Nalin Sound is on all continents at least as much in demand as on his home base in North Rhine Westphalia which, more precisely, is the "Tribehouse" in Neuss. Meanwhile, he had also established the trend setting record label Superfly Records which helped to launch the careers of today's DJ heavyweights like Moguai, Phil Fuldner or Oliver Moldan, to mention just a few.
But after "Beachball", which from 1997 sold over half a million singles worldwide, nothing was like before. The famous English Mixmag wrote: "German House has never sounded so sophisticated and sensual"
. Kylie Minogue, Frankie goes to Hollywood, Sven Väth, Steve Lawler, Jam & Spoon and numerous others knocked at the studio door asking for remixes. Nalin's golden hand turned Da Hool's "Meet her at the Loveparade" into a superhit and made it the hymn of an entire housegeneration. After having released "Beachball", he was hugely successful with solo production and with his projects Nalin & Kane, Nalin Inc. and, from 2003 with Bush II Bush.
Today, Andry Nalin is one of the most important protagonists of the international Underground House Sounds, both as a soloist as well as with his Bush II Bush project. This particular sound pulsates between Techno, Electro and Tech-House; it intergrates the very best of these styles and effortlessly glides across the somewhat narrow bounds in this country.
Furthermore, he founded together with Franka Siepmann, Markus Wolf and Oliver Ochs the "Die Wellenreiter
" company. All partners from this project are bundling the experiences of their work fields and they decided to create a concept, that exeeds all boundaries between cities, music styles and even continents. Climax of this concept is the music & fashion sea adventure that Siepmann, Wolf, Ochs and Nalin organized, happening one week long in september 2008. On the AIDAcara, an ocean cruiser of the Aida fleet, 1300 lyfestylers will experience the most impressing party of their lifes, supported by 20 international Top-DJs. Furthermore “Die Wellenreiter” did a clubtour through Germany’s club landscape with stops at Spindler & Klatt (Berlin), zuHouse Club (Dortmund), Cocoon (Frankfurt), Treibhaus (Neuss), Loveparade (Dortmund) and some more.
