In 1993, Mohan built his studio in Switzerland. At that time he also joined a 6 piece soul, funkjazz band called “Funk You”. In 1995 he was the lead vocalist & backing keyboardist and also wrote songs for the outfit. His first ever 12″ came out when he moved to Berlin to study Audio Engineering. It was on a Berlin-based label,Blaou, called the “Free my Soul EP” under the Das Deva guise. In 2002 he was approached by Funkhausmusic to join them in building up the label and its sound. He released there as Audio Royal and Hybrid Funk (together with Felix Rennefeld). In 2005 Frankie Flowerz was born – Crosstown Rebels signed his music – he did two 12″ -”The Key” (the record with the scratch) and “SweetsistaVoodoo/In your Eyes”, and a remix for Adamsky (“Larynx”).

In 2006, Mohan sent Tiga an MP3 for his then 12″ on Funkhaus, “Now or Never”; Tiga loved it and they met. Funkhaus disbanded in 2005, but he continued the label with one of the owners. Then came Hypercolour in 2006 and a 12” was cut – the “Sweet Dreamz” EP on Hypercolour, UK. In 2007 Mohan discovered Myspace and puts some of his different sounding productions on the player and hunts for friends. Prinsthomas found him and “Break The Barriers” gets signed on to his label Internasjonal. He sent out “Rain” and “Stylo” to Tiga and they met…again. Then, Mohan met Thomas von Party (Tiga’s brother), and “Funk Dat” got signed on to Turbo Recordings…it continues.

With some hard hitting releases on some fine electronic music labels, Mohan was set to expand his music; sharing it with people who dig his vibe. In July 2009 his next stop was OM Records, San Francisco.
