The man behind Deetron is Sam Geiser (1978) born and still living in Bern. He first got into contact with music during his early childhood, for his father is a Jazz musician. His big youth passion, however, was HipHop. He was fascinated by the likes of Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Prince Paul but also by Todd Terrys early HipHouse tunes or Detroit techno originators Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson. After having bought two turntables and a mixer, he began DJing Hip Hop in 1992.
Nowadays he is a techno DJ and producer who produces warm techno with the soul of Detroit. He has released on labels such as Intec, Music Man and Ongaku and DJs alongside Will Saul under the alias Close.
