Eric Martin (Technotronic)
Forever connected to the development of the worldwide house phenomenon as part of Technotronic, this multi-talented musician is equally at home with club music or hip hop.
Eric’s first solo project “As Far As I’m Concerned” on Island Records featuring Guru of Gangstarr and The Roots, was short-listed for the Mercury Music Prize.
In addition, Eric has written and produced for Jeff Beck, Maxi Priest and Capleton among others. He has also developed a ground-breaking DJ set as MC Eric, establishing a career as a house producer in his own right.
Back in 1989, Technotronic took the world by storm with their first chart success ‘Pump Up The Jam’, a track now considered by many as a seminal house classic. Eric, alongside Jo Bogaert and Manuela Kamosi, sustained a long period of success with the group. Chart and club hits included ‘Get Up! (Before The Night Is Over)’ and ‘This Beat Is Technotronic’. The act sold well over 14 million albums along the way.
After Technotronic, Eric released two acclaimed albums as Me One, collaborating with some hip hop legends along the way, yet 2017 finds him focused on the dance floor again. He is currently working with Shaun Escoffery, Lifford, and Akil The MC of Jurassic 5.
As a DJ, Eric brings classic flavoured house sounds to crowds across the world. His DJ sets fuse timeless classics with recent floor-fillers, which are manipulated on his bespoke set up to great effect.
Using a combination of decks, hardware, and MIDI controllers, Eric maintains a live element to his DJ performances and creates an environment where he can manipulate tracks on the fly. Bridging turntablism with live sequencing, his creativity is felt in every aspect of the set as he remixes house classics for a contemporary dance floor. In addition, Eric also maintains a dialogue with his audience, harking back to the days of New York’s old school block party DJs.
Eric regularly rocks international dance floors with his unique solo DJ performances. As well as touring with Technotronic, who have recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of ‘Pump Up The Jam’, he has performed as MC Eric all over Europe in destinations such as Croatia, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and France. He will soon be branching out to the rest of the world.
MC Eric has combined the best elements of live performance with his unique turntable skills to create a breathtakingly dynamic DJ show which simply cannot be ignored.
