Peter Esaah:

Geboren und aufgewachsen in Berlin und angefangen unter dem Namen Pit war er schon früh fasziniert von der bewegten Clubszene und deren Magie. So war er schon als Teenager ein Nachtschwärmer und war in den Tempeln der elektronischen Musik unterwegs. Inspiriert von der vibrierenden Atmosphäre und ihrer Energie geladene Musik die z.B. von dem legendären Frankfurter Omen ausging, war ihm klar das er in dieser Welt zuhause sein wird. So verbrachte er die darauf folgende Zeit in Vinyl Oasen, um sich und sein Gehör weiter zu entwickeln. Aber vor allem um seinen eigenen Style zu finden und zu kreieren. Privilegierte er zuerst den harten Techno hinterlassen heute minimal, Techhouse und Elektrobeats die unverkennbare Handschrift in seinen Sets. Somit lässt er einfache Clubnächte zum Soundspektakel werden. Mit den richtigen Beats zur richtigen Zeit, beweißt er das seine Musik Kein Fast Food für die Ohren ist. Damit sorgt er mit seinen treibenden Sets dafür, dass nicht nur eingefleischte Musikliebhaber auf ihm kleben bleiben, sondern auch Gelegenheitsclubber. Fast darf man schon sagen, dass er ein Garant für eine erfolgreiche Party ist. Aus dieser Ekstase heraus, neue Klangwelten zu erschließen und seiner unerschütterliche euphorische Gier nach Musik wurde das Projekt Connected Soundz in 2006 ins Leben gerufen. Connected Soundz setzt sich aus eng befreundeten und angerierten Künstlern zusammen. Nach einer 5 Jährigen Pause startet er in Berlin als Peter Esaah erneut durch.
