It began in 1998. In Gothenburg, the Swedish west coast city, characterised by its shipyards, docks, and rusty harbor cranes, came to be the home of Elektron. And just like Elektron is a part of the city, the city is a part of Elektron. For them, the rugged industrial surroundings, the hint of stubborn outsiderness sometimes experienced while riding the tram resonate in their instruments.

But in a sense this is irrelevant. When you come into contact with an Elektron instrument, your particular sound emerges. This is what matters. Designed to the highest standards, assembled by hand, and tested exhaustively before being sent out worldwide: their offerings help producers, artists, and DJs both well-known and underground to perfect their craft.

And it's not just the hardware. Outside of the machines, the award-winning Overbridge software suite fully integrates compatible Elektron instruments with computers - efficiently and intuitively.
