Swedish producer Henri Hurtig aka Cid Inc began his journey into music production in the early 1990s. It's a fervor that eventually led him to electronic dance music and more specifically house and techno. The sounds of KLF, Underworld, Future Sound Of London and Aphex Twin are what shaped Henri's musical foundation early on and eventually led him to begin DJing in 1993.
Drawn to more experimental sounds at the time Henri's early studio ventures were that of breakbeats, techno and abstract electronica. Slowly these early experiments were forged into more club oriented constructions which Henri soon began road tested in his DJ sets each week. It was the Swedish producers dedication for perfection that led him to eventually study sound engineering from 2001-2004. This proved to be an important step in Henri's evolution as an electronic music producer as he is now highly regarded as a sound engineer by all his industry contemporaries. His mastering is sought after by some of the most widely respected producers and labels. Christian Smith, Guy J, Hernan Cattaneo, Pig & Dan, Hope Recordings, Lost & Found, microCastle, Octopus Recordings, Sudbeat, Transmit Recordings and Tronic are just a small selection of the many artists and labels that swear by Henri's mastering expertise.
Innovation was a characteristic Henri always aimed for in his studio work and it was that very trait that led to the birth of Mashtronic in 2004. Formed in conjunction with German producer Mathias Bradler the Mashtronic moniker was one of the leading lights in the fashionable electro-club sound which dominated electronic music from 2005 to 2008. This success was met with a very hectic tour schedule for the better part of the next three years. It saw Mashtronic travel to over twenty countries and perform as an integral part of Global Underground's 2007 World Tour.
As the aforementioned electro-club sound quickly became passé Henri felt that the musical integrity of the project was no longer relevant. Never one to be constrained to a certain frame of time or sound Henri then set out on a new solo studio venture. He created the Cid Inc. moniker in 2008 and essentially changed the landscape of what progressive music was regarded as at the time. It was such a unique sound that was coming out of Cid Inc's studio at the inception of the project. Henri quickly built the Cid Inc. moniker into one of the largest, most loved and most in demand names in the new landscape of progressive house. In this rapidly changing genre the next 6 years saw Cid Inc. with a number of notable achievements including appearances on Anjunadeep, Lost & Found, microCastle, Natura Sonoris and Sudbeat. He was also chosen as one of the best artists in progressive house by Beatport. It was a prestigious achievement and one which he shared with Guy J, Charlie May and Henry Saiz. Cid Inc's knack for creating fresh, hypnotic grooves has never wavered and he has continued to reap the success of his studio dedication with now countless Beatport #1 Must Hear Records of week and a long line of chart success. In addition to being an extremely in demand remixer Cid Inc's own original productions have been reworked by an impressive list of industry A-listers including Guy J, Henry Saiz, Hernan Cattaneo & Soundexile, Jamie Stevens, King Unique, Microtrauma, Nick Muir and Petar Dundov.
Cid Inc. has always featured a wide array of electronic music talents in his DJ sets. The Swedish producer is on a never ending search for the freshest sounds and most promising up and coming talent. This passion ultimately led to the creation of the Replug Records imprint in 2009. The label would not only become a place for Henri to feature some of the best up and coming talents but also an outlet for some of his own productions and those of his electronic music contemporaries. Since its inception Replug has showcased cutting edge sounds from the then up and coming DNYO, Juan Deminicis, Mike Griego, Rich Curtis and Rodskeez as well as more established producers like Andre Sobota, Darin Epsilon, Deepfunk, Hernan Cattaneo & Soundexile, Jamie Stevens, Luis Junior and Nick Muir.
