Bio

 

„No pain, no gain”, Cedric Zeyenne has known and lived by this proverb since his early childhood. His greatest passion has always been ice hockey and he was well on its way to competing against the biggest names in the business. But besides the sport there was always music, at the young age of 16 he began working with music and soon it became the centre of his attention as he gained more importance over time. Therefore, Cedric decided last year to put his cards on the table and focus on developing this passion.

Through teaching himself the skill of DJing at home, his sound already became famous 7 years ago in his region. While he was increasingly gaining confidence due to his various performances, Cedric was able to start producing his own tracks and mixes. His first priority was always quality! This was also evident to the club operators in Zurich, and soon the athletic blonde DJ was playing at legendary Saint Germain, where he was responsible for creating unforgettable events and entertaining the party scene of Zurich. Along with his success came Bookings with Afrojack at Kaufleuten Zurich, Steve Angello at Club Q in Zurich and countless other performances in different cities of Switzerland.

Used to discipline and willpower, Cedric Zeyenne is not easily satisfied and therefore spends countless hours in his studio, which in turn is rewarded. His remix track “Drive Me Insane” (2010) made it to the legendary Ibiza CD and brought him some memorable Bookings to popular hotspots: Pacha Gran Canaria (Resident), Sea Lounge Monte Carlo along with Bob Sinclar, wedding Jan Tops and many more to come…

Cedric is aware that life as a DJ is not always played straightforwardly as one would like it, therefore he focuses more on his career as a producer, which was immediately intensified through the release of his first single “universal Dancing” in winter 2011. The track is available worldwide on Itunes & Beatport and suits his target audience’s taste perfectly. Not to forget, of course, is his finest hour with DJ Cruz for the release of “Storm” of spring of 2011, with provided Cedric with an outstanding reputation and prestige. To give other young DJ’s a chance, Cedric created his own party series at club Hiltl called “Cedric Zeyenne Night”, which attracts countless fans and is held six times a year.

As always, while thinfs are already going well, Cedric tries to top it off, as the sporty DJ does not settle easily. His own label production ZEYENNE 89 will be introduced and launched in August 2011 and is dominated by Modern and Progressive House with a touch of rock. Above all, Cedric is fascinated by the production and composition of music aims to exceed in every aspect of it. Not only does the piano play a great role in his beats, the guitar will now also find its place within his tracks to make them even more unique and exceptional. Zeyenne 89 will give him the opportunity to fully revel in his music and it creates a great opportunity for talented young artists.

Through his exceptional talent, his will and his love for music the Helvetic Nerd’s team became familiar with global House DJs such as EDX and Chris Reece and shortly after became a member of their team. In the summer of 2012, the crew travelled to LA to produce various tracks and vocals which will be published soon. We are looking forward to it!
Also one of the most famous House Producers of Switzerland “Remady” expressed his interest in working with Cedric and so Zeyenne was able to directly influence and structure the official remix of the famous song “Doing it Right” with the vocals of Amanda Wilson (also known thanks to “Seek Bromance” with Avicii) and Manu-L, which is currently being played by great DJs all around the world.

Not to forget: Willy Monfret, the famous supermodel from NewYork is about to initiate his career as a DJ and producer within Progressive House. After a few recordings in Cedric’s studio the Model was convinced of his work and decided to release his new tracks under Zeyenne’s label!

And as you know by now, all of this will still not satisfy the ambitious Cedric Zeyenne. His goal is to conquer the studios and dance floors of the world and he wont let anything come between him and his dreams! Greetings from the ice hockey!

„Ohne Fleiss kein Preis“, dieses Sprichwort kennt Cedric Zeyenne schon aus frühster Jugend. Denn seine Leidenschaft gehörte dem Eishockey und er war auf dem besten Weg zu den ganz Grossen des Business. Doch neben dem Sport gab es da auch immer die Musik, welche er im zarten Alter von 16 Jahren zu bearbeiten anfing und diese wurde irgendwann immer wichtiger. Daher beschloss Cedric letztes Jahr alles auf diese Karte zu setzen.

Das Djing erlernte er bei sich zu Hause und seine Sets waren schon vor sieben Jahren in seiner Region bekannt. So hat er sich mit jedem Auftritt mehr Selbstbewusstsein aufgebaut und gleichzeitig angefangen auch eigene Sachen zu mixen und zu präsentieren. Höchste Priorität hatte dabei immer die Qualität! Dies blieb auch den Clubbetreibern in Zürich nicht verborgen und schon bald sah man den sportlichen Blonden im St.Germain, wo er an den legendären Parties für schwitzende Wände und ein glückliches Publikum sorgte. Es kamen Bookings mit Afrojack im ehrwürdigen Kaufleuten, Steve Angello im Q Zurich und unzählige Daten in anderen Städten der Schweiz zusammen.

Durch den Sport an Disziplin und Willenskraft gewöhnt, gibt sich Cedric Zeyenne mit dem Geschafften nicht zufrieden und verbringt unzählige Stunden in seinem Studio und dies wird belohnt. Sein Remixtrack „Drive me Insane“ (2010) schafft es auf die legendäre Ibiza-CD und beschert ihm einige unvergessliche Bookings an beliebten Hotspots: Pacha Gran Canaria (Resident), Sea Lounge Monte Carlo zusammen mit Bob Sinclar, Hochzeit Jan Tops und viele weitere werden folgen…

Cedric ist sich bewusst, dass das Leben als DJ nicht immer so spielt, wie man das gerne hätte und daher konzentriert er sich auch vermehrt auf seine Produzentenkarriere, welche mit dem Release seiner ersten Single „Universal Dancing“ im Winter 2011 so richtig lanciert wurde. Der Track ist weltweit über Beatport & Itunes erhältlich und schlägt beim angestrebten Publikum wie eine Bombe ein. Nicht vergessen darf man natürlich auch nicht seine Sternstunde zusammen mit DJ Cruz für die Veröffentlichung von „Storm“, der im Frühling 2011 für viel Auf- und Ansehen gesorgt hat.
Um auch anderen jungen DJ’s eine Chance zugeben, kreiert Cedric eine eigene Partyreihe im Club Hiltl „Cedric Zeyenne Night“, welche bei den Fans super ankommt und viermal jährlich stattfindet.

Und wie immer, wenn’s schon gut läuft, legt Cedric noch einen drauf, denn so schnell gibt sich der sportliche DJ nicht zufrieden. Sein eigenes Produzentenlabel ZEYENNE 89 wird im August 2011 eingeweiht und steht ganz im Zeichen von Modern- und Progressive House mit einem Touch Rock. Denn die Produktion und Komponieren von Musik fasziniert Cedric mehr denn alles andere. Neben dem Klavier soll nun auch die Gitarre ihren Platz in seinen Beats finden. Zeyenne 89 soll ihm die Möglichkeit geben sich voll und ganz in seiner Musik austoben zu können und gleichzeitig eine Chance für talentierte Nachwuchskünstler werden.

Durch sein Talent, seinem Willen und der Freude an der Musik wurde auch das Helvetic Nerd’s Team mit weltweiten Housegrössen wie EDX und Chris Reece aufmerksam und wurde prompt in ihr Team aufgenommen. Im Sommer 2012 reiste die Crew dann nach L.A., um verschiedene Tracks zu produzieren und Vocals aufzunehmen, deren Veröffentlichung bald folgen. Wird sind gespannt!
Auch einer der bekannteste Houseproducer der Schweiz “Remady” bekundete sein Interesse einer Zusammenarbeit mit Cedric und so konnte Zeyenne den offiziellen Remix des bekannten Songs “Doing it Right” mit den Vocals von Amanda Wilson (bekannt unter anderem dank “Seek Bromance” mit Avicii) und Manu-L gestalten, welcher momentan von Dj-Grössen aus aller Welt gespielt wird.

Nicht zu vergessen: Willy Monfret, das bekannte Topmodel aus NewYork startet seit Neuestem eine Dj- und Producerkarriere im Progressive-House Bereich. Nach einigen Aufnahmen in Cedric’s Studio war das Model von seiner Arbeit überzeugt und beschloss seine neuen Tracks unter Zeyenne’s Label zu releasen!

Und wie man Cedric Zeyenne kennt, wird ihm das noch nicht genügen. Sein Ziel sind die Dancefloors und Studios dieser Welt und aufhalten lässt er sich ganz bestimmt nicht! Das Eishockey lässt grüssen!

French Biography will follow soon.

“Chi non semina non raccoglie”, questo proverbio ha accompagnato la vita di Cedric Zeyenne sin da ragazzo. La sua passione apparteneva all’hockey sul ghiaccio e aveva tutta la stoffa per diventare un personaggio di spicco. All’età di sedici anni, Cedric scopre di avere un’altra passione che lo affascina, la musica. Con l’andar del tempo la musica ha avuto sempre più un ruolo dominante nella sua vita e questo l’ha spinto l’anno scorso a dedicarsi esclusivamente alla musica.

Il DJing l’ha imparato a suonare per conto suo e i suoi pezzi hanno avuto un notevole successo già sette anni fa nell’ambito della sua regione. Grazie a varie esibizioni, Cedric ha acquistato sempre più fiducia in se stesso e questo gli ha permesso di creare pezzi e di presentarli al pubblico. Quello che per lui contava era la qualità! Il suo talento è stato notato anche da vari gestori di club di Zurigo e dopo poco tempo, il biondo atletico ha conquistato il leggendario St. Germain, dove lo attendeva il compito di far trascorrere al pubblico una serata indimenticabile. Con il suo successo arrivarono Bookings con l’Afrojack al Kaufleuten Zurigo, Steve Agnello nel Club Q e tanti altri avvenimenti in varie città della Svizzera.

Abituato alla disciplina e alla forza di volontà guadagnato attraverso lo sport, Cedric Zeyenne non si accontenta con quello che ha raggiunto. Passa molte ore nel suo studio e la sua determinazione e forza di volontà sono ampiamente ricompensate. Il suo Remixtrack “Drive me Insane” (2010) trova un posto sul CD mitico Ibiza, questo gli permette ingaggi in vari luoghi come Pacha Gran Canaria (Resident), Sea Lounge Monte Carlo insieme a Bob Sinclar, il matrimonio di Jan Tops e tanti altri seguiranno ancora…

Cedric è consapevole che la vita come DJ non gira sempre come lui vorrebbe e quindi si concentra sempre di più sulla carriera come produttore, dove riesce a lanciare nell’inverno 2011 il suo primo singolo con il titolo “Universal Dancing”.
Questo track è disponibile in tutto il mondo attraverso Beatport e Itunes, dove segnala un successo straordinario.
Indimenticabile è il momento con DJ Cruz per l’uscita di “Storm” nella primavera del 2011, che ha suscitato scalpore e spettacolo.
Per dare la possibilità anche ad altri giovani DJ’s, Cedric ha creato una propria Partyserie nel Club Hiltl “Cedric Zeyenne Night”, che avviene sei volte l’anno, il quale è stato accolto con entusiasmo dai suoi fans.

E come succede quando le cose funzionano bene, il giovane sportivo non si accontenta così facilmente. Il suo marchio ZEYENNE 89 viene inaugurato in agosto 2011 e viene dominato da Modern- e Progressiv House con un tocco di Rock. È evidente che la produzione e la composizione di musica affascina Cedric più di ogni altra cosa. Insieme al pianoforte ora anche la chitarra deve avere il suo posto nei suoi Beat. Zeyenne 89 gli darà ora la possibilità di scatenarsi per la sua musica e contemporaneamente dare una opportunità per nuovi talenti.

Conoscendo Cedric Zeyenne, non è ancora soddisfatto di ciò che ha raggiunto. I suoi obiettivi sono conquistare gli studios e dancefloor di questo mondo.
Una cosa è certa, Cedric non si lascerà fermare facilmente. “Saluti dall’hockey!”
