Agent Biography

My name is Martin Naus. Until I was eighteen I was not really interested in music, but then came the era of indies guitar bands and I was most affected by the music of The Cure. In 1990 music became my hobby No. 1.

Gradually I was attracted by electronic music more and more, especially EBM. I went to the first EBM concert of The Blind band in 1991. Since then EBM became my most favorite genre and most I liked bands as Front Line Assembly, Skinny Puppy, Project Pitchfork, Leather Strip, Ministry and Young Gods. At that time I also met Prague's Radio 1 DJ Josef Sedlon, with whom we used to go to all EBM concerts in the Czech Republic and even to some abroad. Between 1993 and 1994, following the take-up of dance music, I was more interested in this new trend. I was regularly visiting favorite Thursday techno nights in the Radost club in Prague promoted by Planet Alfa and I bought my first deck. For almost a year I was practicing mixing technique and style at home. It was a self-teaching and all the knowledge at that time I acquired by watching foreign DJ's who played in Prague. The first unofficial party I played at was Josef Sedlon's residential night at club 19 in Kladno in 1995. In December 1995 I played my first official gig in Beroun. The band Orbital became my longtime No. 1 musical act for many years. Dance music was all to me so as of 1 January 1996 I quit my job and started living off gigs and music. I became the official DJ of the Lighthouse agency which helped me a lot in the beginning and I had the credit to play at all parties organized by this pioneering musical agency. This was one of the reasons why I was getting more and more bookings all around the Czech Republic. Musically, I was leaning more towards harder and faster tracks. From being originally almost a hit-based DJ I gradually became a more crystallized interpret. My sets were becoming harder and since the start I had always been particular about clean mixes full of energy. I started trying to produce first tracks and slowly buying studio equipment which I was learning to control at the same time. It was a self-teaching in this field too. Between 1998 and 2002 I was the most booked DJ in the Czech Republic. Besides that I have played in clubs almost all around Europe and my own production was beginning to be able to compete. Together with a friend and colleague Dzejar we promoted a successful festival Svojsice in 2001 for the first time. It was mostly a techno festival with no musical compromises and such it remains while we still organize it. So since then I am not only a DJ and producer but a promoter as well. In 2000 I founded my own label Fylo where I present mainly my own material and works of my close friends. I mixed several compilations, some of them presented my own tracks. It was a big honor to me to make a remix for my longstanding most favorite Czech project Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Since 2001 I have been an official DJ for the Pioneer brand in the Czech and Slovak Republic. Currently, following a gradual commercialization of the dance scene, I do not have that many gigs as I used to have few years ago. This is mainly due to the fact that my style is very specific, mostly hard and often experimental. I am not corroded by trends and I try to go my own way. I stay apart from the Czech dance music show business "elite" and parties are no longer the most important thing in my life.
