"DJ Axel F." alias Axel Kneschke is born in Frankfurt am Main and in Ebern (Germany) grown up. His musical career already began beginning of the 80th.
He founded the schoolband "KIZZOU" with 3 other guys.
In 1986 Axel won a DJ's younger generation competition in Roxie at that time in Haßfurt (Germany). With an education as a Lightjockey and as a Discjockey he collected valuable information and experiences.
To the pseudonym "DJ Axel F." he came by the title song to the soundtrack "Beverly Hill's cop" (leading role Eddie Murphy alias Axel Foley) which was composed by Harold Faltermeyer and was produced.
The song called "Axel F." and at that time was Axel's opening song (Intro) in the greeting of his guests in the disco. Because on the Vinyl-Promo-Maxi a big sticker with Axel F. was to be seen, Axel put this Maxi always accidentally in front of the mixer with it everybody could see. One day the guests started calling Axel as Axel F. or DJ Axel F. and responding.
