Musician, underground producer and rare performer on exclusive stages. Jörg Hanke aka LICHTNEST/ LICHT * produces, releases and performs electronic music in his own unique style - and now appears as a regular guest DJ on a UK techno radio show.

After being touched by classical music at an early age and then by contemporary rock music, he learned how to play the guitar and was soon getting hands-on training through playing and composing in bands. As a child of his time, Jörg quickly embraced the machines. Lessons in rhythm and sound programming followed immediately. He worked in record stores, at a music distribution company as well as in clubs. And it was from the beats and sounds of the dancefloor that he drew his inspiration. It was no surprise that Jörg went on to become a DJ, later branching out with his own in-house underground electronic music productions.

    Edelfettwerk - 6 a.m. eternal 'Neujahrsfruehclub'

* LICHT was Dirk Blankenhaus, drummer and application programmer, from Kellinghusen - and Jörg Hanke, guitarist and event technician, who entered the world in Hamburg. Dirk sadly left the world for a better place in early 2011.

Opening for 16,000 people at an open-air festival was breathtaking - but they still remained a legendary living room act, known only to a few select insiders. Dirk and Jörg launched the LICHT ambient music project in 1996. In autumn that year, they recorded the Hale Bopp Series, sharing a mutual understanding and fine harmony. As LICHT, they first performed 6 months after formation and it was all up and running. Promoters became aware of what they did and a steady stream of invitations to perform followed. The principle of creating material for each new job was so fruitful, that Dirk and Jörg were able to enhance Ambient Floor and intensify their musical collaborations with guests at their live appearances and performances.
