a.k.a. Grooveterror

Music has always fascinated Florian. During his childhood he loved to sing in the youth group of the seamans choir called "Blaue Jungs aus Eckernförde", then a few years later, he also sang in the Ansgar gospel choir in Neumünster.

In the middle of the 90ths Florian also developed the love to the electronic music. He was particularly influenced by the "BlueBox/Bloer/Polimorf" group around Marc Simon, Mike Reetz and Frank Martinique as well as Azzido Da Bass and his former class-mate Robert Natus.

Of course it was bound to happen: in 1996 he began djing at clubs, at that time still hard trance, later then Detroit Techno and House. Later on - during his service for the german armed forces - he changed again to other styles: Minimal Techno und Techhouse. At the end of 1998 Florian started with - not at all professional - music producing. This was at that time, however, rather "for himself" than for any (wide) mass.After the failed attempt with his music café "cafe holstenstrasse 3" and the later breakdown of the artist's group "cafe:satz", Florian pursued a few more years the internet-community "Electronic Beatz Network" which fell victim, however, in december 2007 to a hacker's attack.

This throwback and some other health and professional problems were the reason for a longer music-break in 2008. Finally, in june 2011, Florian suffered a “burnout”. However, thanks to the burnout-therapy, Florian found slowly back in the life and repositioned himself at least in the musical area anew. It´s astonishing what you can achieve with a little rhythm in the blood and the right melody in the head.

Now he‘s producing more professional his own styles: a groovy mixture of Deep- and Techhouse as Florian Martin and Techno/Techtrance as Grooveterror.
