When in 2005 Paul van Dyk used “Carry on” for his album “Politics of Dancing 2”, it definitely marked a first highlight in this early stage of Wellenrausch and finally introduced Wellenrausch to a worldwide Trance community. Founded in the year 2000 by Torsten Fassbender, Wellenrausch productions and remixes for artists such as Blank&Jones, Luna Park and PPK constantly hit the international Trance charts, are present on a number of compilations and can be found on the playlists from almost every top DJ in the world.
Beside that, his superb producing skills brought him an offer from high nominated Software Developer “Waves Audio” to write a Production Book for their “Sound.org” Openmix™ Series, which got great reviews from international music magazines and is still representing a highly acclaimed classic in Trance music production.
In 2006 Torsten Fassbender moved to Berlin. Two years later his paths crossed with austrian born singer, songwriter, live- and studio musician Markus Geisberger, who had left Austria in summer 2008 to discover the Berlin music scene and who is now “the other part” of Wellenrausch. From spring 2009 on, the newly formed Wellenrausch started to spend endless hours in their studio in Berlin Buckow. Pretty soon the first tracks were finished. But, however, it should last almost another year until the first single “no superstition” was released.
In spring 2010 the collaboration with Afterglow Records was established. “No superstition”, the first single produced together, made it on Sony’s Dream Dance Album and got quite good reviews and is still highly accepted by clubs and DJs around the world. Inch by inch Wellenrausch was moving forward again. Creating new sounds within new arrangements, combined with lyrics and vocals that definitely match the ambience of every track. The ideas kept flowing and the harddisc heavy rotating, recording track by track, thus developing the new Wellenrausch style. From July to December 2010 their first album “Personal Epos” was recorded. An album release in summer 2011, a lot of new tracks and projects ahead and a lot of surprises from now on.
