Biography

Tocadisco (Spanish for 'turntable') was born Roman Böer on 9 June 1974,[1] and grew up in a small city near Cologne, Germany. He plays several instruments and played in different bands in his youth.

In 1996, Tocadisco's professional DJ career started at Düsseldorf's UNIQUE Club. With Tocadisco on the turntables, UNIQUE got voted "Best Club of the City" several times in PRINZ magazine. He has also played for fashion brands like G-Star Jeans and Diesel. In 2000, Tocadisco moved to Cologne and built himself a recording studio.

DJ Tocadisco has produced several remixes for different record labels. The most popular remix was for "Lifetimes" by Slam; the mix got voted one of the 12 Best Remixes in 2001 by the readers of the music magazine GROOVE. In October 2003, Tocadisco got signed to the German dance record label Superstar Records. His first single under his own name was called "Nobody (likes the records that I play)". In 2005 Tocadisco got voted by the readers of Raveline as one of the best newcomers in 2004.

In September 2006 Tocadisco remixed a track by Michael Cretu's project Enigma - Eppur Si Muove, from Enigma's album A Posteriori.

On 7 April 2007, Tocadisco appeared as the guest DJ on the second hour of Matt Darey's weekly Nocturnal radio show. In the first hour, Matt Darey also played Tocadisco's remix of Dyad 10's "Sugar, Honey (Sweet Thing)".

In 2007 he also remixed some tracks, that were included in Benny Benassi's compilation album Cooking for Pump-Kin: Special Menu such as Patt (Party All The Time), Keep Control, Dance is Dead.

In 2008 Tocadisco worked together with David Guetta on his song "The Sound Of Letting Go" with Chris Willis, the song was credited as David Guetta and Tocadisco instead of David Guetta featuring Tocadisco. Instead Chris Willis was featured.

In 2009 his second album, "128.0 FM", came out and he married a Brazilian model called Natasha Garcez, changing his name for Roman Böer de Garcez.
