Mental Blue (Roland Budin) developed his artistic journey differently than usual DJ’s. He was born in Germany. In his young years he started to play piano, accordion. As he comes from a music oriented family he started to produce music and very soon electronic music and developed himself as a music composer, producer/remixer and later DJ as well.
His interest in electronic music started in the late 80ies / early nineties which was intrigued with the first acid house sound grooves. Later he was infected with the electronic techno movement and the first underground techno parties in Germany as well as Croatia 10 years later. From several occasional more or less recreational DJ gigs in Germany and later on i Croatia, his experience in electronic music is now primarily acquired from two decades of his audio production studio.
His studio was an is his little empire, where inspiration is expressed through groovy sound creations. Mental Blue enriched his experience as a DJ with live acts and collaborations with the “human drum machine” and vocal acrobat “Mr. D.” Both contributed to each other and that has launched the duo. Sharing a passion for electronic music and yet a wide range of genres in which they have operated is a result of their wide audio experience. They always provided their audience a juicy progressive and tech house groove session throughout live acts mixing, live sung vocals and live played konga drums to the progressive set of DJ Mental Blue.
Even though a electronic and party like groove electronic atmosphere was his main interest in music production he often balanced his emotional life and artistic expression throughout relaxing, ambiental and symphonic music production which is more the opposite of his main interest in music production. Nevertheless he enjoyed the relaxed state that this kind of genre provided him.
