- Artist name: Zemtex
- Nationality: AUT
- Style: Industrial Techno, Classic Techno, Detroit Techno
Zemtex’s interest in electronic music was sparked at the tender age of 12 with drum’n’bass and hardcore. From that point on he went to countless parties to celebrate, film and expand his musical horizons.
Zemtex was infected with the medium of techno at the age of 19 through friends and at various events. As a result of these influences, Zemtex, whose real name is Peter, bought turntables and a mixer. Initially specializing mainly in hard techno, UK, and acid, he quickly expanded his horizons to include the umbrella term ʻtechnoʼ.
After a lot of experience gained at private parties, he found another way to distinguish himself. Peter founded his platform ʻTinnitus Eventsʼ in 2008, and regularly organized events of the harder type under this flag. At the beginning of 2009, Zemtex became a member of the locally operating event series ‘Wired Sessions’, with which he made many successful appearances, but decided in March 2010, in the mutual interest, to become self-organizing.
Driven by this basic idea, Zemtex launched a new project called “Fortissimo” with the ongoing musical and technological development in order to sonicate the electronic underground of the Pinzgau and the greater Salzburg area.
His current style could best be described as stompy, industrial techno, although his musical spectrum can also be expanded to include classics and Detroit techno.
In 2014, Zemtex started the ‘Combined Forces’ project together with his longtime friend and techno enthusiast ‘Tony Vegazz’ in order to delve even deeper into the subject and also to distinguish themselves in terms of production.
He has been a member of the artem sonitus crew based in Pongau since 2019 and has been involved with his new companions in the local scene ever since.
Zemtex has dedicated his life to techno and his drive to create something new will surely make you hear a lot more from him in the future!
