Morten began DJ’ing at the age of 14 and since then, the passion for music has been the driving force in his life. Like most DJ’s, Morten started his career by playing small, private parties and local venues in his home town of Aarhus, the second biggest town in Denmark. His passion, drive and talent quickly escalated him to today’s most sought after DJ in all of Denmark– playing the biggest events both nationally and internationally for more than a million people in 2009 alone.
In 2008, Morten won the category of Best DJ, at the prestigious Danish DJ Awards. That same year, he teamed up with successful producer Klaus Christensen – the mastermind behind several top hip-hop hits who possesses an incredible feel for progressive house music and they instantly clicked and began to work on their unique and distinctive sound that today is the trademark of Morten Breum.
During the following year, the two worked day and night in sweat and tears and finally produced Morten’s debut album, DROP! DROP! was released August, 2009 on Disco:Wax/Warner and instantly gained national and international recognition. The single DOMESTIC from the album quickly went Gold and now closing up for platinum and DROP! received two additional awards for the single “HøjereVildere.” which he actually did as a dj gimmick record with fellow dj Rune RK before he started to work with Klaus Christensen.
Morten also had the single “ON IT” released on Ministry Australia – this track later being selected to Pacha’s annual compilation, a noteworthy recognition as Pacha is the undisputed biggest brand in house music.
While working 24/7 in the studio and playing several gigs a week in the winter days of 2009, the phone call came from danish pop icons “Nik & Jay” – the best selling artists (more than 600000) during the last decade in Denmark, and they were so impressed with “Højere Vildere” that they had to do a vocal remix. That remix now named “Skru Op For Den Bitch” was released around Easter 2009 and instantly hit No.1 on the dance charts,and it made more weeks (3 months) on the topspot than any other dj had ever achieved before . In addition, Morten was invited to tour with Nik and Jay that following summer.
They performed almost 200 gigs that summer and autumn, playing for nearly 1 million people in total – a record he would top the next year!. He will in 2010 once again be part of the Nik & Jay festival campaign adding even more fame to his belt and he will be releasing a mix cd of his favourite club tracks during the summer,distributed by Sony Music. Finally he is the first dj to remix The danish rock band Dizzy Mizz Lizzy – the band who still holds the record for most sold debut albums in Denmark – the track WATERLINE was in the past voted as Best Rock Track ever in Denmark!!
