York (AG)

Artist

York is a project of Torsten Stenzel, a pioneer in club music since the early 90ies...

Torsten Stenzel is one of the most successful dance producers of the 90s and 2000s with projects like "Dj Sakin & Friends" (European top positions with "Braveheart", "Nomansland" etc.), "Taucher", "Ayla" (in cooperation with "Tandu"), ATB, "NUKE", "Red Light District" etc..

At the end of the 90s the project "York" was born together with his brother Jörg Stenzel and immediately the first single "The Awakening" was a sensational success in all European countries (e.g. gold status in UK) and set a trademark with the typical "York" guitar.

With the second single "On The Beach" this success was extended even further and reached among others the Top 3 in the UK as well as chart positions all over Europe and the USA.

The original artist “Chris Rea” was so enthusiastic about Stenzel's cover version - which, by the way, sold more units than his 1986 original - and supported the promotion with, among other things, a joint appearance on the British "Top Of The Pops" show.

Numerous remixes (including Faithless and Moby) and collaborations with artists such as ATB ("Fields Of Gold") solidified the cult status of "York", which continues to this day.

In the last 5 years he had a lot to do with his singing daughter "Au/Ra" (UK hit "Panic Room", Jax Jones "Miss you"), whom he looked after as manager and producer.
