Indigo Aera, remember that name. Detroit techno from Amsterdam, Jasper Wolff and Maarten Mittendorf have been releasing some quality records since the labelâ€™s start-up back in 2010. We welcome the talented duo to a new episode of DJB Transmission, hosted by Eelco Couvreur.

Excellent debut.
Born in Hengelo, a small town in the eastern part of Holland, Maarten Mittendorff's interest in DJ-ing started at an age of 15. Dwelling first thru pop music, and electronic music in general, he eventually found techno in the late 90s.

Apart from the love for Dj-ing he also started producing in 2008. At the moment he's running his own label together with Jasper Wolff called "Indigo aera".
