The man behind the "Erot" project is Tore Mortensen, born and raised in the Danish town Aalborg. He was born in 1986. His passion for electronic music came from Kraftwerk, which his father introduced for him in an early age. This evolved to several different genres in electronic music, and in 2006 he was introduced to chill-out, which he immediately took a liking.

He then started to produce himself, and has now been playing at several parties and festivals in Denmark. His focus lie on the ambient atmosphere in his tracks, which he tries to keep as dark and mysterious as possible.
