Since that moment, this artist chose to pursue his activity under the name of Dj Tieum.
After being launched into the auto-production by creating the labels Psychiatrik and Gobble Records, Tieum went into partnership with Audiogenic in 2004 in order to create a new label, Altern Hate, which became quickly an international reference.
