Pr1mo is a nickname of Martin Strzalka, Polish music producer and DJ. His music adventure has started in 1998, when inspired by Ninja Tune sounds he had made his first track using the Fastracker software.
His DJing career started at DJ Shop, Katowice in 2000 where he was sitting a lot listening to his DJ friends like Poziom-X, Siasia, Zulus, Sweet and Jaco has been polishing their DJ skills, playing turntables and mixing Techno. This made Pr1mo got into DJing and little bit after in 2001 he played his first gig at Seleecta party. Spinning vinyls at Sellecta Partys with DJs: 5cet, X-Pablo, Peeql, Machine and MC Fokus, MC Hyde gave Pr1mo a real great kick into the beginning of his music career. A few years later, year 2004, he joined the Silesian Banquet Union music events agency, where with DJ Jazzbin, Matjazz, Zombee and Jahdas he started to organize his own gigs at the Silesia area.
This cooperation was very succesfull so that Pr1mo has started to organize his very own cyclic gigs like very known Technologic, House:Nasty or Rewind, Air Jamaica. Within 3 years time his parties become very popular not just at the Silesia area, but arroud whole southern Poland. But it was not enought for him....
In 2007 he decided to move to Dublin. One year later exactly at the beginning of 2008 he debuted as a producer of the song "Butterflyz'n My Stomach" on the Polish indie label Phat Sounds. In April 2008, he founded his own record label called "Orion Records" and released his debut album "Meanwhile" EP which opened him the door to the music industry. His music was appreciated and adopted by the Argentine Shufflemood Records, Polish Empedo Records, and the German Dopplegaenger, where his song Mean appeared on a compilation alongside Trentemoller and Moog Conspiracy. In 2009, Martin graduated from the Dublin Sound Training Centre gaining the Diploma of the Music Production and Sound Engineering. Since then, all his actions are focused on music production and his label development - Orion Records.
