Biography

Dutch artist born in Vught, The Netherlands, 1967. Uses a handfull of monickers producing Detroit techno, electro, house and ambient. Recorded for R&S Records, Outrage Recordings, Apollo, Djax-Up-Beats, See Saw, ESP, Klang Elektronik and Phono Records to name just a few. Since 1996 he is also releasing music on his own label Signum Recordings. (and it’s two sublabels Passiflora and Glam) Van der Vleuten switches without any effort from ambient to (experimental) techno, over jazzy house to vocal dance.

He’s a schooled musician (drums, piano and bass) and played in several new wave/industrial bands. Maarten’s musical vision knows no limits: working in his own studio, he’s constantly experimenting and exploring all aspects of danceable music, looking for innovation and bringing new angles to it. Due to his experimental vision towards his music, Van Der Vleuten’s productions are not mainstream material. As a result of that he has gained more credits from within the “underground” scene. Or as the database of The Dutch Rock And Pop Institute writes; “…one of the pioneers of the dutch dance scene…” Call him an eclectic, and you’re absolutely right. Label his music as neo-romantic, and you’re close to an accurate definition.
