He is truely a pioneer of electronic music. In the business since middle of the 80s he produced countless tunes. His repertoire ranges from Downbeat to melodic and deep Techno. Starting with a Commodore C 64 computer, he worked with almost every good sounding tool of electronic music through the years. Early stations of his electronic career are the dance project Basic NRG on Virgin Records or the Electro-Pop band Fabrique on BMG. His love for electronic dance beats and soundscapes in conjunction with his sound engineer education and obsessed perfectionism led to many productions of the highest quality.
Inspired by a visit at Café del Mar on Ibiza, he made a trip to Downbeat during the millenium. In the end, it should last well over a decade and not only bring forth Vargo, but also establish him as a well known chillout-name worldwide. It created three artist albums, countless EPs and eight own compilations, which all entered the top of the iTunes electronic charts, most of them on his own label Ambient Domain. Vargo’s tracks appeared on more than 200 Compilations, among them the famous Buddha Bar or Café del Mar, on wich he alone had 15 releases. The tunes “Get Back to Serenity“, “The Moment“, and “One Language” became chillout world hits, all of which made Vargo’s music a defining influence on the genre. There’s hardly a beach bar where Vargos music was and is not played.
Now he has started to share his enthusiasm for contemporary electronic music. Inspired by the current development of melodic techno and downbeat, he curates his successful radio show “Lost in Music” on Planet Radio and plays thrilling sets at numerous festivals and in clubs. His EP “100” was recently released on Katermukke’s sister label MUKKE from Berlin. Due to his pursuit for Development, transformation is the credo of Vargo. And so it is not surprising that he plays as well at the Katermukke Showcase, spinning as resident DJ at big festivals like Deichbrand, as making trips to the trance music at the New Healing or Antaris Festival. In addition, since 2017, Vargo’s “Timewarp Downbeach” events on the Baltic Sea beach are enjoying great popularity. This is where a genre- and thus human-connecting journey through time really takes place. Starting with early Vargo sounds in classic lounge style on the beach, people are stylishly chilled, to be slowly taken over by melodic contemporary dance beats.
In Vargo the mysterious connecting element of electronic music is alive. As a mystic, he lives and breathes it. In his sets. In his music. Wether playing big festivals or small techno clubs: always perfect for the place and the moment the electro-gentleman is one with the enthusiastic dancers and celebrates life with his deep and stunning sets.
