Growing up listening to his uncle's record collection, Axel's original music roots are very much planted in the golden eras of the sixties and seventies. For him stadium-ruling rock legends like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Queen and Aerosmith still cast a mighty shadow and frequently land on his own turntable at home, much to the disapproval of his three sons.
Music has always played a huge role in his life and even during his former career as a professional volleyball player he ensured to keep DJing in every country he had the opportunity to live in including Germany, Southern Italy and Mallorca. After finishing his sporting career, he fell into managing a small boutique hotel in Mallorca, where he witnessed first-hand what great importance music has in influencing the wellbeing and sensory satisfaction of guests and employees.
Being involved with Musicstyling from virtually day one, he has had the opportunity to see most parts of the world and explore many different cultures, exciting influences and musical nuances. These influences and an ever-growing network of trusted connections are the backbone for the company’s ongoing growth. The joy in connecting with like-minded people and working closely with our partners is the most motivating factor in Axel's working life.
