For the past twenty years Tomáš Hartl aka Elektrabel has been one to always set a high bar for the Czech techno producers, his music constantly trying to reach the darkest corners of sonic purity and precision.
His musical origins reach back to the early Noughties, with his 2001 12″ release called Untitled, followed by Elektrabel EP, released on Jeff Mills´ Axis Records 6277 label. The godfather of techno himself praised Elektrabel´s style when he said: „The unique formula of Elektrabel (…) involves vision, an objective and a logical mental structure to materialise such ideas and then, a sense of measuring what he has done in the past and what he needs to do in the future“.
There have been countless releases with Elektrabel´s name both on Czech and international labels since. Not only a producer, but also a DJ and a performer, apart from playing nearly every club in the Czech Republic, he has also played at Berlin´s acclaimed Tresor or Womb club in Tokyo.
