BIOGRAPHY

Andreas Schmidt was born in 1976 in a town next to Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He went to school in his hometown but then moved on to international schools in Bangkok, Thailand for 4 years and New Delhi, India for 2 years. After the A-Levels graduation (Abitur) he did his statutory military service. Thereafter he studied Chemistry at university in Germany.

In 1998 he met Marcus. They shared an interest in electronic music and with Ace’s composing and producing abilities and Marcus’ Dj-ing skills they cooperated under the pseudonyms “Marc & Ace” and “Marc la Cruz & Ace da Brain”.

From that time on, Ace started many projects and produced a wide range of tracks with Marcus as DJ at his side. Projects like “Airfire”, “Traveller” or “Sonic Inc.” were born and were very well received by many Dj’s and fans all around the world. Especially the Sonic Inc. Project was very successful and stood several weeks as No. 1 in the official charts in Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK with video clips in VIVA and MTV.

Early in 2003 the business partnership with Marc ended and as did the partnership with George Acosta. A number of composed tracks were released until that day. To mention a few: “Emotions”, “The Reaper”, “Oval Sun” or “Taking over Space” …

Beginning 2003 Ace and his new company team founded and registered Music-Labels like “Venom-Recordings” and “AceAge-Records”. In addition a Publishing Company was established, the “AceAge-Musikverlag”.

With more than 150 official releases, Ace influenced the Techno and Trance Sound remarkably. Projects like “Ace’s Delight”, “Pervading Call” and “BACED!” were placed numerous times within the Top 10 of the World Trance Charts making him one of the best and most valuable trance producers of that time.

Under AceAge-Records his first album Ace’s Delight – “Sublime” was produced. The album was especially popular in Japan and the USA.

Even though you might only know him from the trance and techno scene, he is also active in other genres of music like writing chart projects for Captain Jack & Roberto Blanco, Franca Morgano from Magic Affair or soundtracks for movies for the film industry.

In the second half of 2006, Ace teamed up with DJ Talla 2XLC. Tracks like “No Signs 2006”, “Shine”, “No Inbetween” or “I Know” were produced with huge success. Later in 2010 Talla 2XLC was awarded with the badge of honour by the city of Frankfurt for his musical achievements.

In 2012 Ace started to add various EDM styles to his production skills and began to produce newcomer DJ’s in this field. One of the most famous by now is probably Chris Stritzel alias “Le Shuuk”. Among several well-known singles and remixes in 2014 and 2015, who were played by the likes of David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, or the remix for Noize Generation who participated in the Grand Prix D’Eurovision for Germany, they produced the anthems of the Big City Beats World Club Dome, which is one of the biggest festivals across Europe, for 4 consecutive years in a row, as well as for its sub-branch in Korea since 2017.

2018 Ace teamed up with newcomer DJ Kaspar also known as MXB. He expanded his field of production to Future Bass and Techno and especially Techno was very successful. So they were directly signed to Krafttek (one of the best Techno labels of the world) for their debut single.
