In 2008 Martin Roth reacquainted the world with modern electronic trance soul, as his self-proclaimed NuStyle productions & distinctive DJ Sets took over control crossing generic boundaries.
NuStyle describes a combination of multiple influences throughout trance, Progressive, Tech & Electro – creating a fresh sound ideal for the Dancefloor & Radio / DJ Play across the barriers, with names such as Chicane, AvB & PvD or German Chart-Toppers Ich&Ich or Rosenstolz all personally requesting the MR-Remix Treatment.
Record sales proved him right as his Remix for “sensation seekers” became #1 in 2008s Beatport sales charts and Martin Roth was crowned alongside Eric Prydz & Deadmau5 “Star of 2008” as well as nominated more than any other Act in their ’08 awards receiving 3 nominations.
No surprise with 5 different #1 selling tracks on the Portal and an incredible 16 Top 10 singles.
The musical background of the Frankfurt born classically trained piano professional originates from 80s Wave heroes like Depeche Mode, having his first club culture experiences in the 90s with Sven Vth and his label imprints EyeQ & Harthouse where he fell in love with electronic dance music.
In keeping with his obsessive love of music – spanning punk, industrial/new wave, pop, house and techno – Martin set out to push the musical boundaries and challenges the dance scene’s preconceptions by going back to his roots resulting in being constantly ahead of the game feeding underground as well as mainstream interest.
Moving to Berlin marked a decisive turning-point in his career. With LUNATIQUE records and the more underground based OMFG!

The labels’ basic concept allows him to explore musical depths and artistic freedom releasing not style oriented but simply modern and catchy EDM featuring exclusive artist releases in combination with his own work.
