Born in East Berlin, Oliver Marquardt was first inspired to become a DJ when the 1984 Break Dance Film "Beat Street" permeated the city's isolated music scene. Equally influential was the dance music he listened to, broadcasted from West Berlin radio. After closely following these new music styles - hip hop, acid house etc – Oliver bought his own pair of turntables in 1989. This was right after the Berlin wall came down, providing fertile soil for the city's new
underground music scene to take roots and by the following year Oliver was hosting his own techno parties. His illegal warehouse parties were noteworthy in themselves Oliver forged ahead as one of the first german DJs to establish a nationwide presence and impressed people with his Dj skills and fine music selection.
DJ Jauche, as he is known, began a residency in Berlin's legendary „Walfisch“ Club and played regularly in many other Berlin Underground Clubs. 1995 he kicked off his party "Jauchomatic" where he brought his brother „Sven Marquardt“ into the club scene and gave him his first job as a "selector/doorkeeper" . Nowadays Sven is famous for his work as an Artist and Photographer and of course as the " Iron Man" selector of Ostgut and now Berghain Club. Jauchomatic stands for music from 1988 to 1995, House to Techno, Oldschool
Trance Tracks, Acid and Breakbeats. His ongoing Event is taking place once a year in his Homebase Berlin and welcomes over 700 happy Ravers.
1998 he launched Jetstream, a small-scale record label of his own. For the 1999 edition of the annual summer festival Loveparade, Oliver prepared under the name Jack Flash a re-edit of the disco classic "Love is in the Air" and pressed 500 white label copies. As the track became an underground hit, he approached the productionteam Milk & Sugar (who were running a label under the same name) for advice on giving it a bigger release.
Oliver debuted his new project Robin Masters Orchestra to showcase his own production paired with various guest vocalists. He continued to champion deep house with Extreme Couching Mix CD series released on DJ SETS now on its fourth edition. In his studio, he stayed busy working with co-producer Björn Brandt, releasing not only as Jack Flash but also as Machomovers, best known for their club hit "Jägermeister". Around this time Oliver expanded his repertoire by producing, mixing and arranging Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft's „15 Neue DAF Lieder“, the bands first album in almost two decades. Over the years DJ Jauche has completed numerous remixes, including for the seminal german punkband Die Ärzte, New York City´s rave pioneer Frankie Bones and Berlin fellow Marusha.
2008 he started releasing new music under the project " Rockford Inc." First release was on Jay Haze's label "Roots/Tunning Spork", followed by the Album release of Desney Bailey "Meant to be". Furthermore he published some vinyls and remixes under the name " Robin Masters Orchestra".
In May 2018 he kicked off releasing his new Album „Backseat Stories“ while continuously djing in clubs, such as „Suicide Circus“, „Sisyphos“, „Ritter Butzke“, „The Egg / London“, „Soho House“ and many more...
Jauche strictly plays Vinyl and combines all styles of music he loves, from House, Disco, Funk to make the events more interesting and keeping the people on their toes.
