Atanasios Christos Macias
Profile:
Ata started in the late 80's as a DJ in Frankfurt/Main in the rising German - and specially Frankfurt-based - house and techno-scene and played in actually every good club in the town and around. At the same time he worked together with Heiko Schäfer aka M/S/O at the Boy Recordstore in Frankfurt. After quitting their jobs there, in 1992 both founded the German recordstore for electronic music in the mid-90´s, the "Delirium" record store. The shop was also the office for their three labels. In September 1993, Ata started Ongaku Musik, Klang Elektronik and Playhouse together with Heiko. With the development of the Playhouse label in particular, he influenced the German and worldwide electronic music. - and does it still. Together with Heiko Schäfer and Jörg Henze, he was also DJing through the German club scene as the Delirium Posse (the guys from the Delirium record store) or Heiko & Ata, Ata & Jörg (or Heiko & Jörg).
Beside his DJ-activities he founded the first 'real' clubnight in Frankfurt for modern house and deep-house - the Wild Pitch Club at the Nachtleben-Club. After years of extasy and parties he closed the concept and opened, one year later in 1999, the Robert-Johnson in the neighbourhood of Frankfurt, in Offenbach. Through the DJ´s he booked, his own DJ-sets and the club itself he turned the Robert-Johnson into one of the more important clubs for electronic music in the region.
