Friendship is the most expensive and beautiful gift you can give someone. Over time, many people will pass you by, but only some will stay with you forever, and these friendships go with you through thick and thin. Lucky are the people who have friends you can trust and who want to stay forever.
Flame2Fame would not have become what it is today without our friends and partners. We are lucky to work with organisations that help us make the world a better place.

Sidilarsen is a French metal band from Toulouse, Haute-Garonne. Formed in 1997, the group has a total of seven studio albums, Biotop (2003), Eau (2005), Une nuit pour sept jours (2008), Machine rouge (2011), Chatterbox (2014), Dancefloor Bastards(2016) and On va tous Crever (2019) in a style that mixes metal and electronic music.
The group has a diverse musical inspiration, with rock and industrial metal influences such as Nine Inch Nails and Rammstein on the one hand, and techno and electro influences such as The Prodigy, Ez3kiel or Micropoint on the other. The group describes their music as "rock-electro metal" and especially enjoys giving concerts and going on tour. The lyrics, dark and humanistic, are written by Benjamin "Viber" Bury and David "Didou" Cancel. They are inspired by Léo Ferré, Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens and Noir Désir and, caricaturing them, denounce the shortcomings and excesses of consumer society and mass culture.
Senay Gueler was born the fourth child of a Turkish guest worker couple in Erbach in the Odenwald region of southern Hesse. He grew up in Michelstadt, where he says he had a great childhood - with lots of greenery, lots of freedom and lots of fun.
In his youth, he played goalkeeper for VfL Michelstadt, was a flute player in the marching band and in the volunteer fire brigade. He was already spinning records at the age of 14. At the age of 16, he had his first gigs as a DJ in youth clubs. Gueler completed a vocational baccalaureate and trained as a foreign language assistant.
Soon after, he said goodbye to the Odenwald and moved to Berlin in 2001 for the sake of a woman. He worked for the music label Universal Music as a product manager and artist supervisor for a good 10 years.
After his divorce, he quit his job and was homeless for a short time before starting over as an event DJ, actor and tattoo model. With his hand tattoo "Hirschbär" (deer bear), Gueler symbolises his connection to Berlin (bear) and the Odenwald (deer).
