Reboot, aka Frank Heinrich, the 30-year-old Frankfurt musician
Reboot, aka Frank Heinrich, the 30-year-old Frankfurt musician, started releasing tracks for Combi.int and i220 with his former partner Delle in the duo Delle-Heinrich. Launched only a year ago, Frank’s Reboot project is so far responsible for the well-received “Charlotte” for Frankfurt’s Below label as well as recent remixes for Greek duo Lemos & Kreon, on Be-Chosen and Below.
At an age when most kids are discovering video games and girls German production wizard Frank Heinrich, aka Reboot, was making tracks on studio equipment he bought with his pocket money. This precocious talent was nurtured by illicit nights out at Sven Vath’s infamous, and influential, Omen club in Frankfurt, where Reboot grew up.
Despite Reboot’s early indoctrination into tough techno sounds he draws on diverse musical influences. As a producer his approach borrows liberally from across the musical spectrum from jazz to world music to classic house. Alongside friends like Chris Tietjen, Marc Scholl and Markus Fix he now spearheads ‘the new sound of Frankfurt’ The result is what Reboot calls ‘complex polyrhythmic architecture’ – and what dancefloors call dynamite.
Reboot has evolved as an artist without ever losing the initial rush of passion that pushed him out of his house and into the arms of electronic music. In a career spanning early collaborations with Marco Delle Done, as Delle & Heinrich, to his current incarnation as a hugely in-demand solo artist, he has released classic records on labels such as Connaisseur, Supplement Facts, Combi Int, Moon Harbour, Cadenza, Renaissance and Cecille.
His inquisitive musical nature pushes Reboot to experiment constantly, developing into a compelling performer equally at home behind the decks or playing live, and who travels effortlessly from temples of techno such as Womb, Tokyo; Fabric, London and Cocoon, Frankfurt to intimate clubs such as Robert Johnson and Brazil’s legendary D-Edge, without losing its energy and power to move.
Reboot is an essential ingredient in the live show Æther, whose futuristic combination of sound of combining the sensory with cerebral, audio with emotional. Fans and record labels alike have taken note of Reboot’s rise, resulting in invitations to join Cocoon’s 2008 Disco Invaders compilation along with Johnny D and Chris Tietjen and – in 2009 – to mix the epic ‘From Frankfurt to Mannheim’ compilation for Cecille Records.
Twenty-ten is set to be a definitive year for Reboot with the release of his eagerly awaited debut artist album ‘Shunyata’. The distillation of two decades immersed in music, ‘Shunyata’ is the sound of an artist in full command of his medium, mingling intelligent, exotic, articulate sound structures with the propulsive, dancefloor consciousness that has won him fans all over the world. The word ‘shunyata’ means ‘emptiness’ but as thrilled listeners will surely agree, Reboot has redefined the word for the 21st century with the fullness of ‘Shunyata’.
After the big success of the album and Ibiza, 2011 & 2012 was characterized by touring all over the planet.
Australia (Stereosonic Festival), USA (WMC, Electric Zoo Festival, etc). Asia (Zouk, Womb) South America (D-edge, Cremfields Brazil, Chile, Etc.)and of course all mayor clubs in Europe.
Due to the travelling, 2011 and 2012 studio time was rare, still there was numerous remixes (Marshall Jefferson, Can 7, Santos, Spencer Parker, etc.) plus a new release on cadenza in 2012 – followed by a mixcompilation alongside Pete Tong on defected.
Twenty-Thirteen kicked off with a extended USA tour including Performances during WMC at Space, Story, nikki beach and Delano.
During 2013 summer, it’s all about touring europe (EGG, Mamaia, Guendalina, Rashomon, Extrema Festival, Ultraeurope etc..)
