Lützenkirchen (born 1976 or 1977, real name Tobias Lützenkirchen) is a German DJ and producer. He is specialized in techno and electro, and is best known for having created the 2008 song "3 Tage Wach" which reached the German Top 40 Charts.Lützenkirchen's roots in music go back to 1992, when he first appeared on record as a singer. He subsequently worked as a promoter in Ibiza in 1995, worked as a professional background vocalist and songwriter on some projects from 1996 to 1999, before moving to the house and techno scene. It wasn't until 2006 he began his DJ career, and adopted Lützenkirchen as his professional name. By 2008 he had switched to performing pure live sets.The single "3 Tage wach" ("awake for three days") was the 60th best-selling single of 2008 in Germany. As summarized by Spiegel Online, the vocoder lyrics describe "how it feels to party for three days without sleep, ingesting lots of alcohol and drugs". Lützenkirchen has described them as satire and as a humorous "mirror of the [Techno] scene", and rejected claims that it was advocating drug use. He has been stipulating in contracts that flyers and posters must not mention "3 Tage wach", being concerned that the hit would define his image too much.
