The Chaenge are Florian Schirmacher and Mijk van Dijk.
Florian is known as the beloved singer of bands like Wareika, Federleicht, Glowing Glisses and Hatikvah.
Mijk has been a mainstay in the Berlin Techno scene since 1990 as a DJ, producer and live act.
It was 80s Funk and Prince in particular what inspired Mijk to buy his first drum machine back in 1988, what eventually led him into a career in the House and Techno scene. But since 2004 Mijk has been
wanting to recreate that 80s Funk sound in a modern outfit.
And he wanted a great singer.
When Florian send Mijk an mp3 demo with just his acepella and a simple drum beat Mijk was immediately hooked and together they wrote their first sing "Rebellion". Right from the beginning they thought of The Chaenge not as a project, but as a band.
First test gigs with drummer Catharina Behr have been played and filmed.
Now their first album "Rebellion" is out since July 4th 2011 on FormResonance and they are ready to go!
