Florian Meindl is a multi-talented and multi-faceted artist, who is renowned for his technical prowess.
Producing for over fourteen years, Florian has become known for his deep, grooving powerful techno. His productions are characterised by his love of analog, which represent his true signature sound.
2006 saw the inception of Florian’s label FLASH Recordings. The label showcases Florian’s musical vision, reflects his taste and gives him tracks for his DJ Mixes. A platform for artists that Florian likes, FLASH has had over 130 releases already including tracks from Heron, Electric Rescue, Maxime Dangles, Hans Bouffmyhre & Avgusto.
In May of this year Florian released his second solo album ‘Collide’ to critical acclaim. The album was clearly influenced by Florian’s transition from producing almost entirely digitally for thirteen years to recording mainly analog jamming sessions and editing the end results after on the computer. The technical aspect is integral to Florian’s musical journey that he takes the listener on. His talent lies in enabling the machines to speak and groove, to connect with them and create sounds and patterns.
In addition to solo releases and numerous collaborations with international artists, and remixing the likes of Hot Chip & Royksopp, Florian is busy with his sound design brand Riemann Kollektion and Riemann Modular which is his new studio gear company specializing in Eurorack Modules.
As a DJ, live performer, studio producer and sound designer, Florian has over the years established an impressive producing base for himself in his Berlin based Riverside Studio complex with an exciting hardware set up including Modular Systems, an analog mixing desk as well as classic machines like Roland 909.
After fourteen years of international performances and production, Florian has developed a special connection with his analog equipment, letting them speak for him in music where words just aren’t possible.
