Perplex On is a electronic music project from Munich. Between Apparat and Tocotronic, Funkstörung and postpunk sounds of raindrops leaking through the cracks in the city, looking for the jumps to reality where dark psychedelic replaces the omnipresent pathos. The result is on the one hand black metal for digital sleep walkers, but on the other hand dream pop for existentialists.

Amorphine is one man project, simply put – me and my computer… My name is Martin Linda and I live in Prague in Czech republic in the middle of Europe. I compose computer games soundtracks and produce rock bands… while I work as a computer games programmer… .. beside that I try to project my ideas and dreams into the music for everyone who want to forget the everyday stress – and that’s what is Amorphine about. You can hear pictures of emotions that I tried to implant into arrangements and sounds ranging from trip hop to new age and chillout electronica or breakbeat. Soundwise it uses mostly software synths and samplers acompanied with several live performed and recorded instruments, vocals and effects. That all together is produced in my home studio. The Amorphine started in 1997 (originaly called Ruber Talpa) as an EBM project. Through the time it evolved more toward the trip-hop, downtepmo and chillout gengres. In 2009 I made and released album Emotion Pictures. In 2012 I made album Everyday Reborn and it is released by Digital Paradox Records.
