Electroboy, (born Florian Burkhardt), is a Swiss electronic musician and music producer. He lives in Berlin, Germany and is often in Zürich, Switzerland. Electroboy produces electronic trash-pop and electroclash with simple, cheeky content.
In 2004 he started organizing parties and festivals in Zurich under his new name: Electroboy. Within a year, the name became synonymous with catchy electronic music in Switzerland. Collaborations with national and international artists (musicians, graphic and visual artists, art collectives,) followed. In summer 2005, Electroboy began producing electronic music. As a party organizer, he was aware that provocative ideas are often missing in electronic music in Zurich in particular. There, the scene tends to specialize in perfecting sounds - shying away from building up an image. Electroboy is an emotional persona who shows less respect, trying not to fear embarrassing moments; all in favour of a simple, yet colourful and lively world which is sometimes absent in electronic music. He went on tour around Switzerland in spring 2006. Between 2005 and 2006 he released four CDs. (see below)
