Das Mörtal began his career in Berlin, inspired by artists such as Steve Moore and Aphex Twin. The producer creates an obscure and nostalgic sound, mixing influences from German techno to horror and science fiction film soundtracks.
2014 was an exciting year for Das Mörtal. In addition to composing the music for the film Naissance d’un Zombie, he launched Hotline Miami II on Lisbon Lux Records. That year he also participated in Osheaga (CAD), the MEG Festival (CAD) and the FME (CAD), Les Transmusicales (FR) all while taking part in two European tours supporting Perturbator.
On June 9, 2017, Das Mörtal released his first album, Always Loved, which is rapidly selling on vinyl in more than 20 countries. The album features a furious, passionate and melancholic story, with a nod to Depeche Mode, Jean-Michel Jarre and Boards of Canada. Always Loved is a contemporary romance with lots of intensity that is underscored by a panoply of synthesizers crisscrossing the paths of synthwave, new wave and techno. With performances that include duets with Canadians Ghost Twin and French Fox, the album received international acclaim that allowed Das Mörtal to headline his first US tour.
In April 2019, he released a deluxe edition of his EP Hotline Miami II, which now has more than 8 million plays on streaming platforms. He'll released is sophomore album, Miami Beach Witches, in October 2020.
