DJ/producer Mertens’ sensational hour-long set recorded for Future Forward Media is now available to stream on Apple Music.
Blending everything from techno’s old, fast-paced and energetic “hardgroove” cuts from the likes of Jeff Mills, Uncertain, Lars Huismann, Raw Material, Len Faki, Oxia, UK Gold, and two unreleased IDs, Mertens selected some of his favourite tracks in a battle of the beats.
Born in 2001, Mertens began to explore his passion for electronic music at a young age. At the age of 17, he started working with Jeton Records and Ferhat Albayrak, further strengthening his bond with electronic music.
Mertens released "Infliction" and "Escape Array" on Jeton Records in 2019, which were supported by artists the likes of DJ Rush, Marco Carola, Slam, Setaoc Mass and Emmanuel Arts. In 2020, he grabbed attention with the remix he made for Mahmut Orhan’s “Hero”, which was released via Ultra Records, and released his debut solo EP titled “Klaxon” on Jeton Records. The now Manchester-based Turkish artist has also produced joint projects with Horatio, Riza Gobelez and Almyra.
There's a massive 37 tracks to keep you occupied in Mertens’ new mix. Listen on Apple Music now.
