Martin Matiske


“At the age of 10, Martin Matiske began mixing records and recording daily new mix tapes. Shortly thereafter, he met DJ Hell, who was astonished from the beginning about his interest in electronic music, records and mix tapes and invited him to interviews as well as DJ gigs, which is why he was allowed to play his first DJ set in 1999 at the Gigolo Night at Ultraschall in Munich. Performances at Union Move followed. At the turn of the millennium, inspired by acts like Kraftwerk and Jean Michel Jarre, Martin began producing his first tracks with a drum machine, a synthesizer and a computer. After a few years in 2002 at the age of 15, his first single “Stars & Galaxy” was released on International Deejay Gigolo Records, which earned him positive feedback from Laurent Garnier, Tiga and ultimately #1 in Dave Clarke’s Top Ten. Afterwards he performed at the “Pukkelpop Festival” in Belgium as well as in clubs like “WMF” Berlin, “La Paloma” Barcelona and “Roxy” Prague, just to name a few. At this time Martin deals with complex composition techniques and harmonics to become a grounded musical base and created his alter ego „Blackploid“. His first EP „Inhaltsverzeichnis“on Frustrated Funk in 2006 was played by Legowelt, Miss Kittin, Helena Hauff. Accompanying this followed other releases on Stilleben and Vivod UK. In March 2017, Martin was commissioned as a remix producer for DJ Hell single “I Want You” and the remix was very popular nationally and internationally. In 2019 Martin decided to exploit his potential as composer and producer and recorded a collection of tracks called „Robotic Theatre “. David Funk was very impressed by his work and „Robotic Theatre EP“on Moustache Records was born, which was played by Helena Hauff. In the meanwhile, his alter Ego Blackploid took over and Martin activated his project in 2020 again. Soon later in 2021 he released „Blackploid – Cosmic Traveler EP“on Central Processing Unit after a 15 years break. Martin continued with his debut Modern Disco EP „Melodic Motion“on Bordello A Parigi and a second Blackploid EP „Strange Stars“on Central Processing Unit which was very often featured in Dave Clarke’s White Noise radio show. The year 2021 ended with a Japanese styled Martin Matiske album called „からくり人形l“ on Femur Records, Spain. In 2022, a third Blackploid EP “Planetary Science” followed on CPU and “Martin Matiske – “Circle of Enlightenment” on LDI Records appeared. The year 2023 has started with Blackploid’s double album “Enter Universe”. A twelve track dark cosmic Electro journey through space out on Central Processing Unit.”
