Biography[edit]

Tocadisco (Spanish for 'turntable') was born Roman Böer on 9 June 1974,[1] and grew up in a small city near Cologne, Germany. He plays several instruments and played in different bands in his youth.

In 1996, Tocadisco's professional DJ career started at Düsseldorf's UNIQUE Club. With Tocadisco on the turntables, UNIQUE got voted "Best Club of the City" several times in PRINZ magazine. He has also played for fashion brands like G-Star Jeans and Diesel. In 2000, Tocadisco moved to Cologne and built himself a recording studio.

DJ Tocadisco has produced several remixes for different record labels. The most popular remix was for "Lifetimes" by Slam; the mix got voted one of the 12 Best Remixes in 2001 by the readers of the music magazine GROOVE. In October 2003, Tocadisco got signed to the German dance record label Superstar Records. His first single under his own name was called "Nobody (likes the records that I play)". In 2005 Tocadisco got voted by the readers of Raveline as one of the best newcomers in 2004.

In September 2006 Tocadisco remixed a track by Michael Cretu's project Enigma - Eppur Si Muove, from Enigma's album A Posteriori.

In 2008 Tocadisco worked together with David Guetta on his song "The Sound Of Letting Go" with Chris Willis, the song was credited as David Guetta and Tocadisco instead of David Guetta featuring Tocadisco. Instead Chris Willis was featured.
