Torsten Stenzel

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

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!
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 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. He has been living on the small Caribbean island of Antigua for the last 16 years, where he also works as a consul for the Foreign Office, among other things.
