He may not play classical music be he is one of the biggest superstars in the EDM world today, and not just in terms of his ever-growing popularity. Joey Youngman, better known for his stage name Wolfgang Gartner, is a Grammy-nominated American house music producer and DJ. At just 11 years old, Youngman was syncing a drum machine to a keyboard and teaching himself how to make music. His musical career didn't unfold until 2003 when he was given his first big break to release records under respected house labels like Tango, Om Records, Naked Music, and Doubledown. Although he became a moderately successful name as a deep house DJ, Youngman donned slew of production aliases including White Collar Criminals, Frequent Fliers, and Mario Fabriano in correspondence to his evolving music. But it wasn't until 2007 when he marked a major step in his career by introducing the world to new music under his new moniker: Wolfgang Gartner.

Not wanting to be criticized for such an abrupt departure in his deep house style, Youngman created the brand anonymously. The new alias gave him the opportunity to explore a new sound without feeling confined by the musical boundaries of his projects in the past. In a period of less than a year and a half, Gartner's single "Front To Back" shot to No. 1 on Beatport, his songs were constantly a Pete Tong's "Essential Tune Of The Week," he acquire three video game licenses, over 50,000 Beatport downloads, and has been featured in tracks with Deadmau5 and Skrillex. Gartner's identity was revealed officially in July 2008 and since then, and because of its tremendous success, has decided to make it his full-time project.
