The 38 year old producer Peter Gijselaers started his music career as bass player in the indie/dance outfit ‘Swains' in 1989,then soon got involved in house and techno production for the belgian ‘KK' label. Between '90 and '94 he released several records as ‘Amazone' on ‘Nova Zembla Records '. His DJ career started in '90 when he began spinning after shows of the ‘Swains' , in this period he already played in lots of clubs across Europe. From '99 on the music production became more important and he released his first 12” on his own label ‘Casanova'. In 2001 the launch of the ‘Meuse muzique' label saw him as producer take another direction , with his electro/techno tracks he got recognition by Dj's like The hacker , Mick wills and Tiga who included the track ‘sacrifice' on his ‘Dj Kicks' compilation out on ‘!K7'. Later ‘Dr. lektroluv' also licensed the track ‘emolotion' from the latest ‘Meuse muzique' for his compilation. Also the collaboration with the German ‘Pocketgame' label resulted in two releases , a remix for ‘STR' and a compilation contribution. In 2003 he started to produce together with ‘James flavour' (highgrade,brique rouge), who lives in Berlin where Break3000 frequently plays since 1999. This resulted in two releases for ‘Mood music', the label of 'Freestyle man' , also the Cologne based Trapez label released two 12”s as ‘Dirtcrew' in early 2004 on their sublabel ‘My best friend'. Break 3000 also did various remixes for Trapez and Traum , especially the ‘Akufen' remix got a lot of attention by various Dj's. In 2005 his release on MBF called ‘FLASH’ stormed the charts across Europe within two weeks after its release. After this he released the ‘Lights’ Ep also on MBF Limited in 2006. Collaborations with Adam Kroll resulted in two releases, one for MBF and the other one on Dirt Crew’s own label Players Paradise. Peter also released a classic acid track on mood-Limited early 2006.
