Dominik Eulberg, born in 1978 in Westerwald, Germany is an electronic music artist and disc jockey who has released numerous singles as well as full-length albums on labels such as Cocoon Recordings and Traum Schallplatten. He occasionally works as a park ranger in German National parks, an occupation he plans to pursue full-time in the near future after retiring from music.

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Eulberg was born and raised in the German region Westerwald.

Dominik's fascination for electronic music began at a very young age. The radio show "Clubnights” with Sven Väth was a major early influence. At the age of 15 he started buying records and learned to DJ. From the very beginning he has given his attention to innovative and experimental records.

Career[edit]

In 1995 he bought his own equipment in order to give free rein to his creativity and to be able to appear as a live act.

Later he ended up in Bonn where he started studying ecological geography. Besides music, nature is the most important thing for him and also provides inspiration for his songs.

His first publications appeared on Matthias Schaffhäuser´s label Ware and on Raum Music, a label located in Frankfurt. Shortly after, he met Riley Reinhold and Jaqueline Klein, which resulted in a collaboration on the labels Traum Schallplatten and Trapez. It is on the former label thet his first album “Flora and Fauna” was published. Further releases on Platzhirsch Schallplatten and Cocoon Recordings come later. Eulberg has also made a name for himself as a remixer, and in the course of that has put noted artists through the acoustic hoop, including DJ Hell, Roman Flügel, Le Dust Sucker, Tiefschwarz, Einmusik and Nathan Fake.

Sound[edit]

All kinds of sounds of nature set out the repertoire of sounds in his songs and give an organic, vivid character to his tracks.

From the croaking of frogs to the tweeting of birds, Dominik Eulberg always finds enough room for animal sounds in his songs. That can be seen clearly if you look at some of his track titles, such as for example “Basstölpel” (bass gannet)

Awards[edit]

In 2004 Groove Magazine, the specialist magazine for electronic music, made him Newcomer of the year in 2004 and third best producer. His first album “Flora and Fauna” was elected third best by a readers' survey in the German magazine Raveline and fifth best album of the year for 2004 by both The Groove and De:Bug. Dominik was also nominated for the German Dance-Music Award in the categories “Best Remix” and “Best Newcomer”.

In 2005 The Groove elected him producer of the year and third best national dj. Furthermore, five of his remixes appeared in the top 20 of the annual charts. By the magazine Raveline he was voted as second-best Remixer and Newcomer and his remix for Oliver Koletzki was number 2. Also, he was voted as fourth-best act and fifth-best national DJ.

2006 Dominik Eulberg was again nominated for the German Dance-Music-Awards in the categories "Best Producer" and “Best Remix".
