 - Martin Bundsen


Martin Bundsen grew up in the western suburbs of Stockholm. His interest in music started at an early age, listening to pirate radio, recording his favourite tracks and making his own mix tapes. His interest in music and street culture developed greatly when the documentary “Style Wars” was first shown on Swedish Television. Break Dancing, Hip Hop and Graffiti were new and interesting. He listened to groups like Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Afrika Bambaataa, Run DMC, T he Sugarhill Gang, Public Enemy, Kurtis Blow, and The Fat Boys, while learning how to sketch and create his own letters. In 1990, only 11 years old, Martin did his first piece in his friend’s parents garage which read “YO! MTV Raps”.With the help of pirate radio, playing the latest club tracks, Martin's interest in electronic music and the typical 4/4 rhythm was born. Groups like Kraftwerk, Ten City, Depeche Mode, Orbital, and Inner City were all an early influence. At the age of 14, Martin went to his first rave and he was in love! The music, the lights, the atmosphere, and he loved dancing all night. Electronic music and graffiti became his biggest interests.In 1996, Martin moved to the US to study in a little town in Wisconsin called Green Bay, about three hours from Chicago. He was soon introduced to the Chicago house sound through DJ’s like DJ Sneak, Paul Johnson, Glenn Underground, DJ Funk, Gene Hunt and Terry Mullan, just to name a few. After hooking up with local DJ Kevin Spencer who was originally from Chicago, Martin made his first attempt to mix on the wheels of steel. He knew right then that this was something he wanted to do for rest of his life.Back in Sweden, Martin soon saved up to get his own set of Technics sl-1200mk2's. He quickly picked up on the basics of DJing, and by 1998 he had his first official gig at a smaller club in Stockholm. Soon after things really started moving and he picked up more and more gigs all over the city.In 2005 Martin won a DJ-competition called "DJ Talent Search", that was held at one of Stockholm's best clubs Grodan (Cocktail Club). After that he went on tour with the magazine LET, "Les Enfants Terribles" and played at various clubs all across Sweden.Martin soon felt that Stockholm was too small, so in January
