Arteq turns Five with Florian Kruse (Last Night On Earth, Kompakt, GER)

It is with great joy we welcome back to Arteq Productions a humbled gentleman; a talented musician; a driven creative. A family man. A man, with a blood stream that holds only the purest of intentions.


Introducing for the second year running; Florian Kruse.


Deep, driving, melodic, energising dance music. When it comes to mastery in music production, Florian Kruse sits a foot above, writing his own story; creating and staying true to his own sound.


We are honoured to be part of his journey, and look forward to displaying his genius to the land down under for years to come.


Florian, thank you. You are as good as they get. And we LOVE this mix. We'll see you soon bro :-) P.S. This set is comprised of Florian's original music from the last 5 years. Boss!

What direction did you take on the podcast?

I decided to go on a little time travel with this mix with own productions only of the past 5 years. Why did you decide to go this way?

Someone asked me where to listen to my music. He didn’t know about me as a musician at all and wanted to check what I am doing. So I send him a Spotify link Introducing: Florian Kruse and actually took the time to listen to it as well. I have found a few tracks I almost forgot about and that was the time when you guys asked me to send a podcast. I was inspired using own productions only. What did you use to record this mix?

I have used the Pioneer DDJ400 Controller in combination with rekordbox.

When did you start DJing, but more importantly, why?

I started DJing in the age of 13 when I bought my first Technics MKII turntable. My older brother was DJing and started his career at this time and I was fascinated by this whole life style and wanted to do the same. Officially DJing in bars and clubs happened a little later when I was 19 and moved to Hamburg.
