Who is Hell?

Helmut Josef Geier, professionally known as DJ Hell, is a German house / techno DJ. He is the label boss of International DeeJay Gigolo Records and has been responsible for many of the big records to come out of the electroclash that emerged in Berlin in the mid-nineties. He is seen as the musical initiator of the 80's revival movement later known as electroclash popularizing the music from his hometown Munich from the mid to late 90's.

In 2006, DJ Hell was involved in a German Intel promotional campaign involving five renowned demogroups, who were set out to create 30-second demos using remixed versions of a DJ Hell track.

DJ Hell's hit single "Keep On Waiting" released as a 12" as Gigolo 122 reference with a remix by Tomas Andersson and a cover designed by French graphic artist Laurent Fetis "Keep On Waiting" was produced using samples as a basic track from a song titled "Blurb" by a New York based group known as Intense Molecular Activity. IMAs 4 track EP was released in 1980 on an independent label.

From 2007 to 2010 DJ Hell performed at the legendary aftershow parties of Michael Michalsky's cultural event StyleNite during Berlin Fashion Week.
