At an early age, when most kids are discovering video games and girls, German production wizard Frank Heinrich, aka Reboot, was creating tracks on the studio equipment that he purchased with his small savings. This precocious talent was nurtured by illicit nights out sneaking in to Sven Väth’s Omen club in Frankfurt, Germany, where Reboot grew up.
Despite Reboot’s early indoctrination into tough techno sounds, he draws from a variety musical influences. As a producer, his approach borrows sounds from all corners of the musical spectrum from classic house, world music, jazz, funk or r&b. Alongside his friends, based around the legendary “Freebase Records” Shop, he spearheaded “the new sound of Frankfurt”. The result is what Reboot calls a “complex polyrhythmic architecture” and what dance floors call “dynamite”.
Reboot has consistently evolved as an artist without ever losing his initial rush of
passion that pushed him out of his career in banking and into the arms the of electronic music industry. In a career that has ranged from early collaborations, to his current incarnation as a widely demanded solo artist. He has released classic records on labels such as Cadenza, Cocoon, Defected, SeiEsDrum, Moon Harbour, Circus, Renaissance, Below, Cecille and many many more. His inquisitive musical nature pushed Reboot to constantly experiment with new sounds and rhythms. This has allowed him to develop into a compelling performer who feels equally at home behind the decks or playing live.
In 2010, Reboot released his eagerly awaited debut artist album “Shunyata”. This distillation of two decades immersed in music, “Shunyata” is the sound of an artist in full command of his medium, mingling intelligent and exotic sound structures with the propulsive, dance floor consciousness that has earned him fans across the globe. The word “Shunyata” is rooted in Sanskrit and means emptiness, however, as thrilled audiences will agree, Reboot has redefined this word for the 21st century with a full and wholesome sound. Following the success of “Shunyata” and his performances in Ibiza, Spain, he has carried his musical endeavors throughout the world at major festivals and nightclubs. His second album “Deep_V” came out in 2014 on Deep Vibes Recording, followed by his longplayer “aLive” on “Get Physical in late 2016, including reworks by “Ricardo Villalobos”, “Kölsch” or “Anna” amongst others. A new longplayer is on the work for 2021. Until today, Reboot’s musical journey has spanned the world, traveling to nearly every temple of house and techno music, such as Ushuaia (Ibiza), Pacha (Ibiza), Amnesia (Ibiza), Womb (Tokyo), Fabric (London), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt) and most major Festivals like Ultra (Miami, Japan, Singapore), Awakenings (NL) or Tomorrowland (NL).
Reboot has joined the ranks of some of the most respected names in the house and techno realm, played a pivitol role in Luciano`s Vagabundos Brand, Reboot’s very own Rock N’ Beats party at the Ushuaïa (Ibiza), his residency at Pacha (Ibiza), Noon Records (till 2018) or his latest encounters in Frankfurt at his local residency at FREUD Club. For 2021 the release schedule is packed with new releases and his new label “RBT.” will launch in September with a re-release of his track “Caminando”.
In addition to his own musical projects, Reboot is involved in the field of artist promotion and development in Frankfurt as a MEC of the Kamori Music production team / Label, as a lecturer in sound synthesis & electronic music production at the SAE Institute Frankfurt and as a Sounddesigner (rbt.studio).
