Oliver Hartmann


"Technology gives you the possibility to deliver your music all over the world via laptop and also the possibility to know where in the world your music is really heard."
When Oliver Hartmann founded the label Etui Records in 1998 at the age of 21, nobody was thinking about such futuristic technologies. During the last 20 years the business economist and graduate of the 1st Scheune Akademie has published electronic music by artists from Germany, Australia, Italy or Switzerland, among others, on his label as vinyl and digitally and sold it to Hong Kong, Japan, the USA or Russia. For at least the same time he has been making music under the synonym Insect O. and has also visited some of the places as an artist. Since 2014 he is co-organizer of the DAVE Festival - Dresden Audio Visual Experience with focus on music production workshops.
