Till “Turntill” Gerber was born on the 11th of November 1985 in Bern, Switzerland and grew up there. His father is a self-employed artist who always worked at home whilst listening to Blues, Jazz, Rock, Soul and Reggae music. This inspired Till to make his own music and when he was 9 years old, he began to play the drums. Around the same age he met an artist who completely changed his vision on art in general and who especially introduced him into Hip-Hop culture. Till became fascinated by this new world that had opened itself to him and he started breakdancing and writing graffiti. In 1999 he bought his first DJ kit and started to learn “scratch” techniques and made mix-tapes.
In 2001 he had his first official DJ set, which was the first in a long series of gigs he held all over Switzerland. Till has been DJing for a local Swiss radio, www.rabe.ch, for over a decade now.
What triggered his motivation to organize his own parties was an internal need to express his personal vision of Hip Hop culture and to support and contribute to the community. He wanted artists to be able to interact and meet with the public. Turntill created three party names for regular gigs: “Funky Flashback”, “Trueskool Downtown” and “Get funky on Thursday”. He also took part in the huge Swiss Hip-Hop jam “Style Time Jam” and even helped organize the 3-day “Bärn Jam”. It has always been important for Turntill to make a bridge between the oldschool and the newschool Hip-Hop music. Turntill is very aware of the importance of conserving and developing culture.
Turntill has always been interested in the root of music and has been digging through the crates of vinyl stores all around the world to find the original records on which Hip-Hop is based. Turntill`s experience as a DJ has given him the knowledge he needs to know how to arrange a perfect team to do fresh new tracks. His networking skills have always been one of the biggest contributing factors to the success of his projects. He is very highly appreciated by all the people who have worked with him.
Over the last years Turntill has produced his events and sold his mixtapes under the brand label “The Chosen Few”. Today „The Chosen Few“ is not anymore just a brand, it`s a worldwide growing organisation for quality Peoples in and anround the hip hop culture. (www.thechosenfew.info)
Turntill is seen in the hip hop scene as an important initiator, micro manager and mediator, who brings artists from various scenes and countrys together to carry out projects. He is also respected for his quest to ensure the preservation and promotion of all aspects of the Hip Hop culture.
