Born in Eisenstadt and raised in Wulkapodersdorf (Austria), Jürgen Drimal developed his passion for music at the tender age of nine, which should coin his path of life decisively. The stepping stone for his musical evolution was the purchase of some Motown records. This was the decisive stimulus for taking keyboard lessons in the years to follow. By aid of his later next door neighbour, no other than Jazz drummer Idris Muhammad, Drimal’s love and knowledge for and about Black Music blossomed and he absorbed all shades of Funk, Soul, Jazz, R’n’B, Brasil and Latin.
His further way was the logical consequence of a passionate love affair with music. The stations he took were the following: Starting with a short tenure as a record dealer, he opened his own enterprise at the age of 19. It didn’t take long for Jürgen Drimal to make a move to Vienna, launching his record store “Cool Vibes” in the centre of Austria’s capitol.
Besides his occupation with the record market, Drimal has already been DJ-ing in various clubs since he was 16. Eventually, in 1994 he underwent his first attempts to become a producer of electronic music and this venture led to the release of ‘Time Zone’ in 1996, a corporation with Jochen Reiter. Inspired by the amazing potential of Vienna’s DJ scene and the obvious lack of a platform for releases, Drimal developed the compilation project ‘Vienna Scientists’ in 1998. Functioning as a forum for DJs and Producers alike, it gave Austrias Electronic New Skool the possibility to showcase its skills and styles. In the spring to follow, Jürgen Drimal founded his own label ‘Vienna Scientists Recordings’ which by now proudly presents its 20th release ‘Vienna Scientists V- The 10th Anniversary'.
Parallel to the foundation of the label, Drimal and his fellow music producer Gernot Ebenlechner teamed up as FREEDOM SATELLITE in order to release their very own musical ideas.
