hofer66 began djing in the early 90s after living the true beginning of house music in ibiza in 1989 with the performance of adamski in amnesia. after this unique experience he started to buy records and play in clubs in germany, on the island and abroad. today he is not just djing, he finally became a producer as well, first productions together with max lanfranconi and ohm-g led him in 2008 to produce with ingmarlo under the name 'sonicure'. since 2010 they are collaborating as well with stephen russell - the barefootdoctor, first trax are released since november 2010 as ‘hofer66 feat. barefoot doctor’, e.p. is called ‘psychoactive’ and contains three trax.

he is booked all over the world without playing too much clubs in summer, as he is busy with the mag. but the few dates he chooses are well worth a visit! so look for his name on flyers and posters wherever you are, and get his unique mix of sexy groovy house with shades of deep, acid, electro, deep trance and techno, flavoured with this balearic touch everybody is seeking for.
together with the barefootdoctor he plays as well long live sets with stephen performing his incredible voice live over the set, creating a unique ambience - subliminal hypnosis set to psychoactive beats.

since 2001 he is as well the editor of dub magazine in ibiza, so he is giving back the people what they gave to him - his spirit and love for this music.

in 2005 he started doing a partyseries called sense - everything that makes sense (myspace.com/sense_ibiza) in one of the most authentic places in ibiza, the grial, in order to create a perfect party. the secret behind the success of sense is the atmosphere, people come to listen and dance, no spectators, only actors! the guest djs are mainly from ibiza as there is a whole bunch of extraordinary talents, and the ones coming from outside are booked because of their musical skills, not their names. this politics is based on the concept 'less ego more music' (great idea, giorgio!) as this is what its really about... after the last winter seasons in different locations such as the great somni in figueretas in 2008 and various ones since then sense will be back this winter in a new, still secret location - stay tuned for more infos.

as this is not enough he has a very big passion since 1993 for radio as he thinks it is still one of the most powerful tools to reach the crowd. he has two own weekly shows for dub magazine and sense all over the year on ibizasonica.com and ibizaglobalradio.com and is invited to other stations all year long.
