About Wolfgang Gartner
The most commercial alias for Joey Youngman – the DJ and Dance producer who also recorded as Bosco & Terell, Count Funkula, Frequent Flyers, Mario Fabriani, and Spyro Pappadopoulos, not to mention monikers for his several collaborative projects – Wolfgang Gartner functions as an outlet for his active and noise-packed electro-house productions, which contrasted greatly with his more sophisticated and “tasteful” deep house releases. Youngman didn’t reveal that he was behind Wolfgang Gartner until 2008, once the alias gathered steam in clubs around the world. From 2007 through 2011, there were nearly a dozen Gartner 12’’ releases, along with remixes of tracks by Tiësto, MSTRKFRT and Britney Spears. The eventual release of a compilation album Back Story helped fill in the story.
In September 2011, Youngman released the first Wolfgang Gartner album, Weekend In America (Ultra), which allowed him to indulge in his love for rap music by roping guest appearances from Cam’ron, Jim Jones, will.i.am, and Eve, along with R&B vocalist Omarion. Additional singles on Ultra followed over the next several years, leading up to his second proper album, 10 Ways to Steal Home Plate, in 2016. Released on Gartner’s own Kindergarten label, it featured Wiley and Trina on the single “Turn Up.” He issued a handful of singles in 2018, including the club favorite “Ching Ching,” “Freak,” and “The Upside Down,” leading up to the release of his EP Medicine later that year. 2020 proved to be an even busier year for Youngman, releasing his latest EP Tucson in July, followed by two singles “Electric Soul” and “Battlestations,” the latter featuring DJ and producer Kill The Noise. As he gears up for an eventful 2021, one thing is for certain – Youngman is back, and better than ever.
