Cosmic Cowboy is Saarland's (an area in the southwest of Germany) veteran of psytrance, born exactly 20 years after A. Hofmanns first psychedelic experience and grown up with the Sgt.

This is proven by his enormous music collection which he started in his teens. In 1996 he was infected by the GOA-Virus and gained first experiences behind the turn tables of the legendary nightclub U.N.T.N. in Saarbruecken and numerous Nada-Brahma-Parties in Mainz and surroundings. Hundreds of gigs followed, within Germany and around europe.
