Andre Rautenberg was born in Oberhausen in 1977. At the age of twelve he had the opportunity to visit a studio and immediately fell in love with music production. Ever since he wanted a studio of his own. His first paycheck was saved and shortly after, the first Technics 1210 were purchased and Andre started djing under the name DJ CANA. Various Studio equipment followed and Andre started recording his first tracks. Different Styles and music partners came and went but it never really worked with anyone until in 2004 Andre met Dominik Becker (DJ der Chemiker) and both formed the DJ Team Chemiecana. Various dj gigs and live acts followed. In 2008, Andre started focussing on his own productions under his real name which lead to his first remix release on DEBOX in spring 2009.
