Acid Pauli is Martin Gretschmann’s club-oriented live set. It has morphed over the years into an advanced DJ performance, incorporating not only techno and house but a wide variety of music across genres beyond dance music. As a versatile musician, Martin is equally comfortable performing at Techno Clubs in New York or Ibiza as he is producing radio plays and writing film music.
Born in the 70s in the Bavarian region of Germany, Martin Gretschmann started to play bass guitar in a punk/indie band in the late Eighties, whilst at the same time becoming interested in the evolution of electronic music and its instruments. The introduction of affordable samplers in that period led him towards the production of his first electronic tracks.
His initial forays under the name Console were released in 1995, and with the help of an Atari computer, a four-track tape machine, a sampler and a small synthesizer, he made his first album Pan or ama in 1996. Around this same time he joined the band The Notwist, tasked with handling the electronic spectrum of their music, and has been a constant member since until 2015.
