The electro-pop trio ELECTROROT met for the first time in 2011, at a jam session in a club under Berlin’s S-Bahn arches. It was here that the electronic beats and samples of Mike Kapelle combined with the synths, rhodes of David Schwarz and the voice of Maren Montauk. Their different musical backgrounds; ranging from jazz, hip-hop and electro, to rock and metal; spawned weeks of experimental sessions until Maren, David and Mike decided to turn their creative ideas into songs.
From then on they have forged their own unique sound, a hybrid of rough dance music and performance art.
Their first improvised performances were held at different bars in Berlin, under the name of Maren Montauk `s concept,“electric vision”. But when Maren’s “electric red” roller skates pulled the trio through Berlin, the trio were inspired to name their collaboration, ‘ELECTROROT’.
Around this time, the online independent music label, ‘unpicked.net’ spotted them and they began collaborating.
ELECTROROT have opened for the Canadian band Memoryhouse and performed at several clubs and gatherings, including the King Kong Klub, Magnet Club and Lido. The first songs were released on bandcamp.com in 2013.
