Denis Matenda is a rather new act on the Gothenburg trance scene.
He was born in Sweden by Croatian parents. Already at school, he started to fiddle around with keyboards and played in a band.
Once finishing his military service, he took a long break from music and went travelling around the world, worked as a diving instructor and opened up a kickboxing club.
He even works as a bouncer at our favourite rock club. While studying economy, he decided to pick up music production again and give it a proper go.
After borrowing other artists studios for a while, he decided to invest in his own equipment.
Releases on Spirit Zone, Medium and Transient soon followed. Even though not connected to the other acts from Gothenburg he shares the same musical background and influences, a bit of funk, a bit of rock and a huge devotion to Jean-Michel Jarre and early electronic music; something that can be easily heard on his debut album, Energy Loader.
The sound is what can easiest be described as trademark Gothenburg trance, or the sound of Spiral Trax.
