Profile description of Monochord:

Hey, i'm Mike
I started producing electronic music in the year 2000 after few years playing the trumpet in a Band.
In the earlier years i often switched my style from trance, progressive psytrance, minimal, techno, house, to my style. A mix between dub techno, deep house, minimal and progressive.

Formerly i produced music as "Emtex" and "The Tape Headz"

In 2014 i changed my whole studio setup from computer to 100% hardware wich was also the beginning of my new project "Monochord"

Influences are coming from jam sessions with the hardware gear and several producers like Basic Channel, Brendon Moeller, Luke Hess, Marko Fürstenberg, Quantec, Echospace, Minilogue, Dataline,...

My soundstyle is a mix between dub, dubtech, dub techno, mnml, house and other genres like idm or ambient but i call it Progressive Dub Tech
