Stefan Kozalla, better known as DJ Koze (/ˈkɔːtsə/), is a German DJ and music producer.[1] Born in Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein, he first became known in the Hamburg music scene.[2] Kozalla competed in his first mixing competition in 1988 at the age of sixteen. He was part of German hip-hop act Fischmob in the 1990s, while also recording under the name Adolf Noise. He began recording under the DJ Koze moniker in the 2000s, releasing music through the German electronic label Kompakt. He recorded three full-length albums during that decade, as well as numerous singles and remixes. He started his own recording label, Pampa, in 2010,[3] and released his latest full-length recording, Knock Knock, in 2018.

In 2017, he was nominated for two Electronic Music Awards for Record of the Year and Remix of the Year, both for his Extended Disco Version of Låpsley's "Operator".
