Born to Croatian parents in Frederiksvaerk, a small village 60km north west of Copenhagen, Horvat grew up on a musical education of his Dad’s 80s records, with favourites including Depeche Mode, Billy Idol, Blondie and Kiss. Shortly after, at 10-years- old, his cousin introduced him to The Prodigy, starting a long-term love affair with electronic music that hasn’t subsided since.
In 2009, Horvat then moved to Copenhagen to pursue a career in music. Before moving he’d already spun at Culture Box in the city, where he would then go on to become a resident, playing at a monthly party at the venue. The move came at a time the city has seen a burgeoning scene of underground house and techno, but the biggest shift in Horvat’s infiltration of the world’s biggest dancefloors came when he signed to Berlin-based label Upon.You Records.
A shift in his career garnered the attention of artists like Âme and Dixon, who subsequently signed him up for his first release through their Innervisions label in early 2016, with ‘Momak’ landing on their ‘Secret Weapons 8’ EP. Considering himself a producer first, after a huge 2015 – which saw his ‘Cedevita’ EP become the mainstay in the record box of the most discerning techno DJs – Horvat spent an extended period in the studio at the start of 2016. What’s followed is an intense period of releases that has seen the Dane establish his trademark sound, with the dynamic productions on releases like his ‘Exit’ and ‘In Hertz’ EPs riding the gamut from slow and deep through to more aggressive techno.
