His pioneering deep, dubby sound was well documented on releases such as "Song For Annie" and remixes for artists like Bertine Zetlitz, DK, Kings of Convenience and Mental Overdrive, and he also produced the classic pop single "The Greatest Hit" for his girlfriend Annie. Erot was also an important figure in the music scene in his home town Bergen, DJing alongside Bjørn Torske on clubs such as Agora and Kennel and contributing extensively to the renowned Tellé label; among other things, he was their in-house designer, and the Tellé logo and all the early sleeves were done by him (as well as loads of logos and posters for other Norwegian artists). Tore suffered from heart problems from birth, and tragically, this eventually demanded his life; in April 2001, he passed away after a prolonged illness. Stephan Grieder of the Svek label said to burntblue.com: "Tore was the only guy I ever asked to do remixes for Svek. He was so original in the way he did things and with his sound.

He had such a big future, and we were all very shocked. He was just starting to produce his own music rather than just doing remixes, and it was just the beginning for him. It was very sad". His friend and colleague Bjørn Torske said this in an interview: "Tore wasn't only a close friend, but also a tremendous resource, both design-wise and musically. The process of making the sleeves, for example, has become so much more demanding now.

All the knowledge and courage Tore had was an asset we don't have anymore. Without him, Tellé would never have existed". 2) Erot is Tore Mortensen born in 1986 in Aalborg, Denmark. As a child he played recorder and drums, but stopped at the age of 9. In an early age he showed interest in electronic music: first it was Kraftwerk, and then later, he expanded to the sounds of Prodigy, Chemical Brothers and such.

In the age of 10 he heard his first goa track, and was fascinated and thrilled with this type of music and the emotions he felt. So in 2004 he started making his own music with FruityLoops, to explore his own inner call of music production, but in the following year he moved to Reason since it offered a wider range of musical possibilities. Finally in 2008 he started using Ableton which he is still using. In 2007 he was offered a gig at the Danish festival Middle-earth. This planted the seed for his great passion: the love for chill-out music - in the festival he found the sparkle that egnited the flame, and the whole experience changed the perspective of the way of life Tore felt attracted to. So in a logical evolution, following his inner call, Tore started to create more and more tunes, tracks and sounds, till some labels and the world payed attention to his work. The result was a release under the Danish label Zealotry Music and two tracks on the compilation "Relax Mode" by Blue Tunes rec.

Afterwards he had more releases on Zealotry including an EP. But the future seems bright with more releases in his agenda and many more to come. Tore production skills varies to several ranges, creating mostly positive music with warm feelings, with great groovy and optimistic sounds, he manages to create music with a unique touch, with uplifting moods. But his range follows also more downside paths with reflective and contemplative music. Since the early releases Tore has been faithfull to his unique style, but always pushing new boundaries and experimentations, and the result is the wide spectrum of styles since pure Chill Out, to more ambient tunes, from psychill passing through chillgressive to even progressive music. Influences: His inspiration comes from daylife experiences.

His creativity flows from the simplest moments in life to most exciting events, where he transforms those feelings in music loosing his mind to the multilayered leads that he creates to turn sounds into emotions.
