Born into a family of musicians, it came of no surprise to see a young Florian Rietze lay the platform of what would later manifest into an unyielding love for music.Based in Potsdam, this young DJ/producer has already received recognition from many within the proliferating European electronic music scene. Having initially been vested to the hip hop and breakdance culture, 2005 saw Florian take his first steps towards the electronic music scene when he attended SonneMondSterne.
After DJing for a couple of years freelance, in 2007 Florian joined the Potsdam-based record label Concorde Club Recordings, where he began to work with a friend as Microtune & Takter.
In 2009, Microtune & Takter released their first EP "Skytrain". From 2008 through to 2010, along with producing music, Florian gained his education in the field of audio engineering at the SAE Institute.
In 2012 Florian embarked upon a solo project as "Florian Rietze" and produced a number of breakthrough remixes that began to reach out to larger and wider audiences within Europe and beyond. Towards the end of 2012, Florian was warmly welcomed into the Steyoyoke record label, marking his debut with "Treibholz", a downtempo treasure and an "emotionally haunting track" that, as Steyoyoke put it, "will linger within the heart".In the upcoming summer of 2013, Florian anticipates his first vinyl release by Concorde Club Recordings.
Florian is on the allegiant quest of refining the sound of his music. Just like a renowned composer known for his eclectic sounds John Cage once said, "Everything we do is music", Florian too finds an inspiration for his music in the the sounds of streets, in people's voices, in silence and nature, and above all -- in the ordinary and extraordinary of real life.
