WestBam – DJ Set @ Mysteryland (Ruigoord, Amsterdam) 2002-08-17
Maximilian Lenz (born 1965) started his musical career in 1978 in the punk scene of his birth town Münster, Germany under the moniker Frank Xerox. The origin of his DJ moniker WestBam is a homage to Afrika Bambaataa, thus Westphalia Bambaataa. Maximilian started his career as a DJ in 1983 in the Odeon club in Münster. He, his brother (Fabian Lenz), William Röttger, Klaus Jankuhn and Sandra Molzahn later founded their own label Low Spirit. He played at the first Love Parade rave party in 1989 at Kurfürstendamm Berlin and also wrote the Love Parade Anthems from 1997-2008.
