Dadub @ Invite's Choice Podcast 073




Dadub is a meeting of two minds, Daniele Antezza and Giovanni Conti, a duo whose output is underpinned by a mutual curiosity. The result? Startling electronic music productions, one of the best live acts in the scene and the innovative Artefacts Mastering studio.
The collaboration started not in their native Italy, but in Berlin. Daniele arrived in Berlin with the kernel of Dadub, a project he'd begun in 2008 with a release on the label A Quite Bump. Daniele came via Rome where he'd plunged himself into production, studying electronic music. Giovanni had been drawn to Berlin to work on interactive digital arts projects, honing his knowledge of hardware and software. Once they met it was only a matter of time before Dadub became a two-men project.
Twinned by a fascination of process, and a love of Lee Scratch Perry's mix board experiments, they take dub and push it into the deepest corners of techno and out to the ambient fringes. Frustrated by identikit sounds in electronic music they set about pouring their technical knowledge together in search of innovation.
They describe their approach in the studio as 'like making scent'. Dadub take sound and process it to extract depth and expose human warmth. With this studio outlook it was natural for Dadub to move into mastering. They delved in and Artefacts Mastering emerged: mastering that involves no presets and a policy of adjusting every track entirely from scratch. It's exactly this type of discipline, their use of open strategies instead of formulas that also makes Dadub so dynamic live. Live they layer dubbing and synthesis, they take Dadub material and deconstruct or reconstruct it spontaneously. Their sets are seriously deep and have been showcased internationally at Barcelona's Sonar festival, Germany's Melt! festival and in clubs from Berlin to Moscow and New York.
There's something alchemical about Dadub whether live, on record or when commanding the studio. And when considering their mixes for CLR or Electric Deluxe and Electronic Explorations, it's clear that when given space and length they're ambitious. This adds anticipation for the forthcoming Dadub productions, particularly their first album, which they are currently synthesizing into existence.

Kevin Saunderson @ Defected In The House (Ibiza Closing Party) [24.09.2012]





Respected and acknowledged around the World as one of the three Detroit Techno innovators, Kevin Saunderson is a legend in his own right, who has helped to reshape the future of Dance music as we know it!

Kevin was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1964, but moved at the age of nine to the place known as the 'Motor City', Detroit. He attended Belleville High School (West of Detroit), where his youthful urge to make music had been fuelled. There he befriended two other like-minded students (Atkins and May). After leaving school he attended Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, where he played Football. After 2 years, Kevin quit playing football in order to focus on music, so he joined his high school pals Derrick May and Juan Atkins, which unknown at the time would be the move that would help Kevin's career escalate.

Starting out as a DJ, Kevin soon developed new skills that led him into producing records, which he released on his own label, KMS Records. The demand for Kevin as a Producer and DJ was overwhelming overseas, as well as in the States. He introduced acts like 'Kreem', 'Reese', 'Inter-City' (later to become Inner City) and 'Reese & Santonio'. Kevin has had many other aliases too, such as; 'Tronik House', 'The Reese Project', 'EssRay', 'Kaos' and more recently, 'E-Dancer', which he uses to show his versatility at being able to create different facets of Dance music. Kevin also pioneered the art of the "REMIX," changing the face of how remixers revamp songs. His very first remix for The Wee Papa Girl Rappers "Heat It Up" went on to pick up 'DMC Remix of the Year' in spring 1988.

In 1987 Kevin, then at only 22-year-old recorded a backing track in a makeshift studio stuck in the basement of his apartment. He needed a girl vocalist who could also supply lyrics and his friend Chicago house producer, Terry "Housemaster" Baldwin, suggested Windy City Chanteuse Paris Grey. Paris agreed, flew into Detroit, came up with lyrics and "Big Fun" was born. Incredibly the tape was then filed away and almost forgotten until months later when UK dance aficionado, Neil Rushton, visited the Motor City to put together a compilation album, "Techno – The New Dance Sound Of Detroit" for Virgin Records. He freaked when hearing the song and made sure "Big Fun" was on the LP. Soon afterwards, it was released as a single and went on to become a World wide smash. But despite it’s sudden success, Paris hung on to her job as a sales assistant in a Chicago store - only quitting when the follow up, "Good Life" outsold "Big Fun".

The third single "Ain't Nobody Better" retained Kevin's techno-logic microchip feel, topped by Paris's soulful voice. Their debut album, "Paradise" cemented this prosperity and highlighted the Detroit techno blueprint.

In 1993, INNER CITY parted company with their label, Virgin Records. The label released the "Testament" "93" remix album to celebrate their time together. Also in that year they were voted, by the readers of Mixmag Magazine, the "Best International Act of the Year" and a "homecoming" deal with their manager Neil Rushton's SIX6 label was finalized. Another UK Tour followed in August '93, including a headlining appearance on the Reading Festival's dance stage and the top slot at the European Dance Weekender in Paris the following month. It was also at this time that Kevin's work with his other group THE REESE PROJECT was greeted with equal glee by journalists and clubbers alike.

With his latest two productions, Inner City ‘Say Something’ (Concept) and Reese Project “This Means That” (SuSu) both providing late summer 05 hits in Europe, it all reaffirms Kevin's standing as one of the 'INNOVATORS', and a leader in the industry.

Petar Dundov liveset at Labyrinth Festival, Niigata - Japan [16.09.2012]




Born in Zagreb in the early ‘70s, his career in dance music stretches back the best part of 20 years, but it’s only in the new millennium that he’s been using his own name for his productions. Over the years he’s graced many of the world’s most prestigious and best-loved techno institutions – including mega-festivals I Love Techno, EXIT, Awakenings and Wire, and cutting-edge clubs like Berghain, Matter (RIP), Womb, Air, Fuse and Space. He counts a longstanding relationship with Belgium’s legendary Music Man label amongst his achievements, an imprint that has also played host to releases by everyone from Jeff Mills (for whose label Tomorrow he created the Sculptures mini-LP) to Green Velvet to Robert Hood, and after completing his acclaimed debut album Escapements in 2008, he’s got the follow-up in the works (for completion by the end 2010).
Petar Dundov makes intelligent electronic music that breaks boundaries, moves feet and twists minds. He is without a doubt one of the most inspiring, original and daring producers in electronica, and with the likes of Sven Väth, Francois K, Laurent Garnier, Adam Beyer, Josh Wink, Guy J, Glimpse, Hernan Cattaneo, Brendan Moeller, and Danny Tenaglia amongst his fans, it would be hard to disagree.

Inigo Kennedy liveset at Resonance [07.09.2012]




Born in North London 1972, I was playing with a Fisher Price turntable by the age of two and spent the majority of my early years taking anything electronic, computerised or robotic apart - progressively things around me turned into a laboratory. During the late 80s I took more than a passing interest in the first wave of hip hop as it developed into a more experimental and electronic format. Mantronix 'Bassline' remains an all time favourite. Inspired by the sound Paul Hardcastle's '19', first heard on the Radio One hip hop show and seeming to defy categorisation, there unfolded an extended period of experimenting with tape dubbing, manual and labour-intensive editing and the misuse of cheap guitar effects pedals. Next came the energy of acid house and break-beat hardcore which was for me a natural progression and firmly planted the seeds of what was to later become a great passion for techno. Throughout this time I was equally fanatical for all kinds of obscure alternative, industrial and electronic music and spent much of my time trawling through record fairs for unusual material. Listening to John Peel's shows on Radio One became a regular source of inspiration and this has come full circle more recently with John Peel regularly playing my material on his shows. The beginnings of my studio, the acquisition of a Roland D-50 and Casio FZ-1 in 1994 and the assembly of a rudimentary home made mixer and filter unit lead to the start of techno production in earnest - and a seriously deep knowledge of how these machines could be used and misused. This period of production culminated in winning of the 1996 Fosters Ice Breaker for Techno on John Berry's Techno Show on Kiss 102 in Manchester, UK. Winning the Fosters Ice Breaker lead to my first release 'The Bond EP' in June 1996. A bright orange record that some people in Manchester at the time may have remembered appearing in their hands outside a few club nights. Throughout this period, early in 1997, several pseudonyms sprang into existence to support a number of different projects - from the harsh industrial sounds of Tomito Satori on Exhibit and Helki Torsnum on Sheer to my increasingly experimental loop based output as Reducer on Instillation. In their own right, these alter egos have received much praise and continue to develop.

The Reducer project has seen the most success and recognition - the material perhaps being the most timeless and far reaching. By way of example in late 2003 Jeff Mills began to express serious interest in Reducer releases from 1998. Over the turn of the millennium and into the 21st century, output continued apace with acclaimed projects for many other labels such as Rodz-Konez, Cutting Pleasure, Potential, Ergonomix, Urban Substance, Morpheus, Native Diffusion, Blackout Audio, Speaker Attack, Electracom and Fylo including remixes for the Space DJz, Makaton, Robert Armani and others. Often, although of course not always, releases that have come about as the result of strong friendships, shared aims and similar ideas.

T.Linder w/ Dj Seoul from Detroit Techno Militia - Dj mix 2012




A veteran DJ with more than ten years of experience under his belt; Detroit native, T.Linder has done his homework and paid his dues. T.Linder takes a no-nonsense, working-class approach to the art of spinning records. He cites old-school Detroit street jocks: The Wizard (aka. Jeff Mills), Gary Chandler, and Steve "DJ Energy" Crawford among others, as major inspirations for his unorthodox aesthetic. "If someone's going to pay money to hear me spin, I'm going to make it worth their money. The way I look at it, there's too many DJs out there meticulously and methodically blending records that all sound the same. As a listener, I'm easily bored with that. I like to take some risks when I perform, skipping across genres and eras, doing scratch tricks with two copies of the same record. I want to give the listener the experience of hearing something they haven't heard before."
Over the past decade, T.Linder has kept a busy performance schedule that has taken him to literally thousands of events across North America. He has played at most, if not all, of the venues in Detroit catering to Electronic Music. Notably, 2030 Grand River, The Works, Motor Lounge, St.Andrew's Hall, and the Underground Stage at the 2002 Detroit Electronic Music Festival (a gig that he considers one of his career highlights).
In 2007, T.Linder released his first EP entitled DTM002 , on Detroit Techno Militia (a record label/artist collective that he co-founded). He has also done remix projects for legendary Detroit Techno producers K.Hand, and Scan 7.
In the future he plans to continue doing what he has does best, creating and playing timeless records, and asserting his position within the rich history of Detroit Techno. "A lot of DJs are switching over digital technology as a medium for their performances. I've been very reluctant to take that step. I am a vinyl DJ first and foremost, so I'll probably play records until my favorite labels stop pressing them. Mainly because I find them more reliable. I've never had a record crate crash in the middle of one of my shows and kill all of the music. Additionally, I think there's something to be said for the tradition of DJs playing old fashioned wax with analog turntables. Music from the future, made and performed with equipment from the past!"



Raised on the East side of Detroit, Bill had an early start in music. At a young age, various forms of counterculture sounds and movements heavily influenced him. His formal training began in 1985 with the drums, and continues today with both traditional, and electronic instruments.
As a youngster, Seoul remembers listening to The Wizard's mix shows on WJLB and the Electrifying Mojo on WGPR and credits those as early influences on his style. From the Wizard's lightning fast mixes to the Mojo's diverse selections, DJ Seoul really began to appreciate the responsibilty of the DJ to constantly be working and perfecting his craft. Couple that with his affinity for Punk Rock groups like Minor Threat, the Sex Pistols and Operation Ivy and you can see where his dedication to being a true performer comes from. DJ Seoul gives one hundred percent every time he performs and this energy is clearly visible and reciprocated by the audience.
It is a natural fit for him to play the music that he loves. By representing his home town properly and playing Detroit Music, DJ Seoul continues to carry the torch that was handed to him by the greats that came before him. Playing wide assortments of music, from Electro, Techno, Hip-Hop and Soul, to House, Acid and Rare Groove, DJ Seoul has become known for his style of bringing a Hip-Hop Turntablist style of mixing and scratching to his set regardless of genre.
In 1996 he co-founded Bang Tech 12 with Greg Montgomery aka. DJ Eclipse. Bang Tech once represented many acts that have gone on to influence the world, including DJ Minx, Magda, Jerry The Cat, DJ Moreese and 8en. Bang Tech 12 was responsible for many large scale, quality underground events in Detroit in the mid to late nineties including "Sounds of Futures Past", "Rampage", "Vertigo" and Return of the Robot". Bang Tech 12 has grown and continues today as a management company with branches in five states. With over 30 different acts under their wing, Bang Tech 12 is a symbol of quality that spans the entire country.
In addition to a 13 year DJ career that has taken him across the world, Bill writes and produces electronic music with great attention to detail. He collects vintage synthesizers and drum machines which he uses to create music with a very distinct sound. DJ Seoul has been interviewed and featured on T.V. and Radio worldwide including FOX News, WJLB, WHFR, WCBN, WEMU, WDPM, CJAM, Techno.FM, NDR and Whitenoise Radio on 3voor12. You can find DJ Seoul's production work worldwide on the Detroit Techno Militia and Bang Tech 12 Record Labels as well as on the Drugaci Exhibitions Record Label based out of Chicago Illinois.
DJ Seoul looks upon the future with determination and hope, "The time is over for looking down our noses in disdain at our fellow man because their beliefs are different, or because they lack the teaching to make educated decisions. By creating a knowledge base, sharing knowledge, and teaching the history of Detroit music to the masses, the uneducated understand and the weak become strong. Through education and cultivation, we can destroy the mediocre standards that have been placed as barriers in the music industry" . DJ Seoul is a leader in the community and has taken it upon himself to continue to usher in an era of change through the art of noise.

Ryuji Takeuchi at LSNDS Launch Special Compufunk Records [09.14.2012]

Then, he has recently founded his own imprint, 'local sound network' on which he intends to introduce talented producers from local to global. through all the experiences, he's still looking for a way to inspire the world...


Derrick May liveset at Chemistry On 3 [Amsterdam 1996]





Of the Belleville Three, the cadre of early Detroit producers who tested the limits of spirit within electronic dance music and changed the integrity of the form forever, Derrick May's reputation as an originator remained intact despite more than a decade of recording inactivity. While Juan Atkins is rightly looked at as the godfather of techno, with a recording career beginning in the electro scene of the early '80s and encompassing some of the most inspired tracks in the history of dance music; and Kevin Saunderson is the Detroit producer with the biggest mainstream success through his work with vocalist Paris Grey as Inner City, May's position as an auteur eroded slightly during the 1990s due to a largely inexplicable lack of activity. As far as influence counts as part of the equation, however, May recorded the techno tracks which top dance producers point to as the most original and influential. The classic Derrick May sound is a clever balance between streamlined percussion-heavy cascades of sound with string samples and a warmth gained from time spent in Chicago, enraptured by the grooves of essential DJs like Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles. May's Transmat Records label was the home of his best material, cuts like "Nude Photo," "Strings of Life," "Kaos" and "It Is What It Is," most produced from 1987 to 1989 as Rhythim Is Rhythim. And though his release schedule all but halted during the 1990s, he continued DJing around the world and honed Transmat into one of the most respected techno labels in the world.
Derrick May was born in Detroit in 1963, a single child raised largely by his mother. At the age of 13, he began attending school in the suburb of Belleville; there he met Juan Atkins and the two began trading mix-tapes, Atkins providing May's entry into the world of Parliament, Kraftwerk and Gary Numan. When his mother moved to Chicago, May stayed in Detroit with another friend, Kevin Saunderson, to finish school. By 1981, Atkins had taught May and Saunderson the essence of DJing as well, and the trio formed Deep Space Soundworks, a collective existing to present their favorite music at parties and clubs. May and Atkins also began working with a local DJ named the Electrifyin' Mojo — the man who first introduced Atkins to Kraftwerk and early synth-pop — by creating elaborate megamixes for use on Mojo's radio show.

This is my small tribute to commemorate the life of James Stinson who sadly passed away 10 years ago.

The first time I ever heard his work as Drexciya was the Bubble Metropolis ep on Underground Resistance (UR-026 - 1994). That ep forever changed the tangent of my dj'ing and provided limitless inspiration for my own productions.

While his productions were spread across many aliases, this 35 mix showcases some of my favourite Drexciya tracks.

'Drexciyan Cruiser Control X 205. If you have any problems let me know. Bubble Control Out.'

Peace,
Patrick HAF/x612.

Ness at Dynamic Reflection Podcast 011





Ness became interested in electronic music in the late 90's. In 2004 he started djing, taking inspiration from various genres going from trance to pure experimentation. The interest in music led him to attend various courses and audio engineer for some years and the conservatory of his hometown.The need to express his emotions through music led him to experiment and research in recent years that better reflect his sound.Since 2009 he founded his own label Mono Records with his friend Bettosun, and releases music in labels such as Prologue, Sonata and Varianz.The experience gained over the years leads to define his DJ sets that are characterized by a strong array of techno and house at the same time.

Max Durante - Acid Mixmax




MAX DURANTE is the best Italian electro/techno DJ/producer, he is the true ELECTRO pioneer since the 80's and one of the creators of the true italian techno, he is one of the hinges of the 90's, of the rave generation, he is a myth of the 90's. He has performed in the best Italian RAVE from 1990 to 1994.
From 1994 to 1998, Max was busy performing his DJ shows around Europe. His sound and his presence have been fundamental for the Italian electro/techno scene. He has regularly played in the best clubs and in the best European festivals since 1992. His first impact with electronic music was in the 80's with the Kraftwerk’s music. Electro was Max’s first passion, this was his first step into the music. Hip hop/electro was important in his dj experience, in the 1985’s he started scratching and cutting, and this has influenced his way of mixing today as a good turntablist too. Considered one of the best European electronic dj, his dj sets are brilliant, and for this reason he has been named "the wizard of the decks".In 1991/92, together with the D'arcangelo brothers, he produced his first record projects on Hot Trax (acv sub-label), the first Italian techno label. Respected for his record productions and for his ability in the mix, he has produced more than 25 records and he has realized around 100 tracks on different international labels.

Suburban Knight at Groovetech Radio, London [08.06.2001]




A crucial figure on the outskirts of Detroit techno since the mid-'80s, James Pennington's recordings as the Suburban Knight pioneered the moodier side of the Motor City with classics like "The Art of Stalking" and "The Groove." And though he collaborated on the biggest hit to come out of Detroit, the techno-pop monster "Big Fun" by Inner City, he later recorded with subterranean mainstays like Underground Resistance. It was through his connection with another Detroit mainstay, Derrick May, that Pennington began recording. May had set up his own Transmat Records in 1986, and Suburban Knight debuted the following year with the third release for the label, "The Groove." He had also been working with Kevin Saunderson, and co-wrote "Big Fun" with Saunderson and Art Forrest. After vocals were added by Paris Grey and the record was released, it became a world-wide hit and virtually defined early Detroit techno for many foreigners.
Though Pennington only released one more single for Transmat, it was the dark classic "The Art of Stalking." He didn't release much on any other labels either, instead asserting his status as one of the top techno DJs and made trips the world over. With the rise of Detroit's second wave in the early '90s, Pennington became a mentor for Mike Banks and the Underground Resistance crew. With UR, he co-produced the singles "Nocturbulous Behavior" and "Dark Energy." He also featured on the Submerge label compilation Depth Charge, Vol. 3, and produced tracks for Underground Resistance's 1998 full-length Interstellar Fugitives. 

Kevin Saunderson @ Dollop Detroit Series, London



Respected and acknowledged around the World as one of the three Detroit Techno innovators, Kevin Saunderson is a legend in his own right, who has helped to reshape the future of Dance music as we know it!

Kevin was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1964, but moved at the age of nine to the place known as the 'Motor City', Detroit. He attended Belleville High School (West of Detroit), where his youthful urge to make music had been fuelled. There he befriended two other like-minded students (Atkins and May). After leaving school he attended Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, where he played Football. After 2 years, Kevin quit playing football in order to focus on music, so he joined his high school pals Derrick May and Juan Atkins, which unknown at the time would be the move that would help Kevin's career escalate.

Starting out as a DJ, Kevin soon developed new skills that led him into producing records, which he released on his own label, KMS Records. The demand for Kevin as a Producer and DJ was overwhelming overseas, as well as in the States. He introduced acts like 'Kreem', 'Reese', 'Inter-City' (later to become Inner City) and 'Reese & Santonio'. Kevin has had many other aliases too, such as; 'Tronik House', 'The Reese Project', 'EssRay', 'Kaos' and more recently, 'E-Dancer', which he uses to show his versatility at being able to create different facets of Dance music. Kevin also pioneered the art of the "REMIX," changing the face of how remixers revamp songs. His very first remix for The Wee Papa Girl Rappers "Heat It Up" went on to pick up 'DMC Remix of the Year' in spring 1988.

In 1987 Kevin, then at only 22-year-old recorded a backing track in a makeshift studio stuck in the basement of his apartment. He needed a girl vocalist who could also supply lyrics and his friend Chicago house producer, Terry "Housemaster" Baldwin, suggested Windy City Chanteuse Paris Grey. Paris agreed, flew into Detroit, came up with lyrics and "Big Fun" was born. Incredibly the tape was then filed away and almost forgotten until months later when UK dance aficionado, Neil Rushton, visited the Motor City to put together a compilation album, "Techno – The New Dance Sound Of Detroit" for Virgin Records. He freaked when hearing the song and made sure "Big Fun" was on the LP. Soon afterwards, it was released as a single and went on to become a World wide smash. But despite it’s sudden success, Paris hung on to her job as a sales assistant in a Chicago store - only quitting when the follow up, "Good Life" outsold "Big Fun".

In 1993, INNER CITY parted company with their label, Virgin Records. The label released the "Testament" "93" remix album to celebrate their time together. Also in that year they were voted, by the readers of Mixmag Magazine, the "Best International Act of the Year" and a "homecoming" deal with their manager Neil Rushton's SIX6 label was finalized. Another UK Tour followed in August '93, including a headlining appearance on the Reading Festival's dance stage and the top slot at the European Dance Weekender in Paris the following month. It was also at this time that Kevin's work with his other group THE REESE PROJECT was greeted with equal glee by journalists and clubbers alike.

Shapednoise at Erratic Podcast 28




Born in Palermo 1/12/1989. He got into dance culture, and particularly electronic music when he was 12, with great excitement and satisfaction about expressing himself through music. He keeps cultivating this passion and in 2009 he moves to Milan for studing "Audio Engineering" at Sae Institute, and he begins to dedicate himself to production of techno music. In 2010, several travels to Berlin and the confidence of his friend Ascion, the first one to believe in his work, has been new motivating forces to keep on his first productions. He starts to crunk out his first releases, pretty much “canonical” techno, soon getting to the development of a very personal sound, orientated to experimental sound design with an industrial  background. His works meet immediatly a great success among the insiders. In june 2011, after finishing his studies, he moves to Berlin and starts working on “REPITCH”, a new label founded together with Ascion and D.Carbone. REPITCH is definitely a label of dark tonalities. Shapednoise will take care of the experimentation of sounds turned towards a not so distant future, out of every musical logic, perfectly denoting the concept already defined by the other two Repitch, but undoubtely in a more extreme way.

Xhin live at Rhythm Factory, London [07.09.2012]




Xhin (pronounced as "sheen") has been crafting ominous cuts of cutting-edge electronic music since 1997. Building a forte in sound design, he is best described as a sound futurist. His identical rhythmic structure and compositional techniques which incorporate elements of techno, tight sub bass, ambient and IDM delivers a hint of chaotic soundscape amidst artistry. A Singaporean by birth and residence, he independently released "Xycle", a self-promotional ep that made the industry to stand up to take notice, in early 2003. He then followed with his debut album, "Supersonicstate" the following year.
In 2006, his talent has been discovered by a German independent record label Meerestief. With a remix that he has done for Dublin's Five Green Circle's track entitled Ronan's BBQ has created a storm over Europe. Praised, supported and charted by heavy weights from the world of electronic music. Then in 2009, Xhin has found a new home. He joined Berlin's then new techno label, Stroboscopic Artefacts to release his dark, intense and experimental side of things. From the results of his new releases for the label, he has done it again. Heavy rotation from the big boys like Speedy J, Luke Slater, Ben Klock and many more to mention. This will be yet again the beginning of an old new direction for him to explore and experiment sounds even deeper for his future releases. So what's new and exciting coming out of his bag? A long awaited 3rd album since his 2nd one entitled Greyscale for Meerestief is set to be released on Stroboscopic Artefacts some time in late 2011.

Lucy // Electric Deluxe Podcast 078




Lucy: producer, DJ, founder of Stroboscopic Artefacts. That’s probably how you know him. But there’s also Luca Mortellaro, a published author, experimental sound designer, and the man behind the Lucy moniker. There’s no doubt that the two are linked, but it’s certainly the hidden facets of Luca Mortellaro that are responsible for the dynamic output of Lucy.

In 2005 Lucy left his native Italy for Paris. In search of romance? Perhaps. The fact that the very first demo he ever sent was noticed by James Holden makes Lucy’s story more than romantic, it’s fit for the silver screen. As he delved deeper into electronic music Lucy made the essential move from Paris to Berlin. It was here that one of the scene’s most exciting record labels was launched: Stroboscopic Artefacts. Under Lucy’s careful curation Stroboscopic Artefacts has emerged as a platform that illuminates pioneering electronic music. The fact that the imprint has garnered such international attention shows that whatever the key to Lucy’s elusive approach is, it’s working.Lucy’s DJ sets range from the darkest techno, to the deepest industrial sounds and the most iridescent textures. Never one to shy away from ripping into the peak time and equally in his element playing the ecstatic afterhours, he manages to refuse the obvious and yet satisfies the dance floors’ appetite for the unexpected. A quick listen to his essential Resident Advisor mix, his contributions to the CLR Podcast or his wide ranging Palette for mnml ssgs will attest to one thing: he’s too angular for genres and pigeon holes. It’s this quality that’s seen him grace the decks of the world's most dynamic clubs and festivals: Berlin's Berghain, London's Fabric, Tokyo's Dommune and Freaks Village, Amsterdam's Trouw, Moscow's Arma17 and New York's Oktave party, not to mention Sonar, Melt and Tauron Festivals.

Based in Glasgow, Scotland. The grimey one time murder and drug addict capital of Europe provides the perfect environment for Galaxian's distinctive take to the electronic sound. Influenced by the purveyor's of classic Detroit techno, early rave, electronica and more recently the myriad hybrid sounds and styles which are now at the forefront of electronic music.

Samuli Kemppi - dj, producer and radio host

Giorgio Gigli live at Dommune - Tokyo [24.05.2012]



After a deep exploration of several kinds of electronic dance music, in a broad evolutionary path, Giorgio Gigli's music has assumed an intense and personal form of communication.
The modules emerging from his compositions run across a process where moods are transformed into waves, layers and substrates that are ready to catch and overwhelm the listener without changing original content.
His skill is to transmit an accurate signal using undiscovered frequencies inspired by desolate and noir tinged landscapes. Giorgio transforms his material. Voids, pitfalls, drones and dilated melodies become intricate, sophisticated, and hypnotic rhythmic equipment that runs the risk of constantly changing classicist techno aesthetics in a conceptual derivation close to his soul. Giorgio loves ambient music that dues to its descriptive power allows him to analyze and render every vibration and vision, both during production and his long dj sets, where he explores empty rooms that are filled with vintage recordings, ethereal drones and field sonority. This particular working method is also reflected in his harder sets, where rhythm increases tension while it is moving forward unchallenged through industrial echoes, robotic tricks and building grooves that produce shaped variations of his meaning. Substance thickens to provide a thoughtful and reflexive listening experience. All these elements are poured into his project "Zooloft Records", a platform in constant update and in constant assimilation between old-school ethics (strongly linked to vinyl usage) and futuristic sounds which owe much to the futurist aesthetics of sixties sci-fi movies.
Zooloft is the materialization of a precise idea through a precise message: We Still Try !

Uden at Italiansgroove Radio Show exlusive on Stromkraft Radio




Aldo Di Nauta aka Uden was born June 18th 1986 in Ischitella (FG), Italy. His principal activity is the DJ. At the age of 18 he went to live in Bologna. Impassioned for a long time to the most electronic sonorities and inspired by house's groove, he founds in Bologna the sound that currently proposes in his djsets: a mixture of deep, techno and minimal, also influenced by artists as Alhek, Scalameriya, Perc, Sasha Carassi, Stimming, Burial, Svreca, Dubit, Marcel Dettman and Labels as Genesa, Stroboscopic Artefacts, Semantica, Mote Evolver, Phobiq, Analytic Trail. However, Uden is fascinated by Netlabels's world and he plays a lot of tracks in Creative Commons license. During the permanence in the north Italy there was born a lot of collaborations with clubs and staffes, and the greatest satisfaction is the realization of Soluxion Records, a project that involve four chins prepared to make electronic music their winning weapon. These four brains are Dubit, Santhiago, Blacksun and Uden.

[Video] Steffi at Boiler Room




You can trust Steffi as a dj implicitly, in form and content. Her skills are extraordinary, as you can see when she really works the records and eq’s; no soft blending, but mixing in its original sense. She features a plethora of styles and varies every single one of her sets ranging from Electronic Disco, to serious Detroit- or Dutch Electro, whereas original, funky and fat House always will be her solid foundation.

Since 2000, Steffi runs her label Klakson together with Dutch producer Dexter. Apart from the special cover design (black and white photos), Klakson first and foremost impresses by music: Records by artists like Dexter, Fastgraph, Duplex, Seymor Bits, Putsch 79 or Mr. Cisco have been supported by the likes of Laurent Garnier, DJ Hell, Andrew Weatherall and Miss Kittin. It surely is an aficionado’s label occupying a gateway between ambitious club music and humour.

[Video] Dj Bone - Pause Métissée - UBU CLUB [01.10.2010] + Dj Bone Mix [12.08.2012]



To some he is the champion of the underground. Others see him for the first time and ask the person dancing like crazy next to them, "Where did THIS guy come from?"

Think of Detroit Techno and DJ Bone might not be high on your list of luminaries because he is 100% independent and does things on his terms and on his terms only. He won't tap dance or bend to fit the "popular" dj mold. Those who recognize Bone know him for his uncompromising and innovative ways.



It's no accident that two letters always precede Bone's name whenever he's on the bill. First and foremost, Bone is a DJ---in the truest sense. When he spins, it's as if the turntables and the mixer become a physical extension of his body. He employs every possible technique in the disc jockey arsenal masterfully: blending, scratching, backspinning, no monitors or headphones; unrivaled in his use of the fader switch and he incorporates them all into every set. From his standing room only residency performances to after-hours spots, he rocks every show as if it's his last.


DJ Bone is one of Detroit's most coveted underground vinyl technicians. This very talented and highly sought after artist plays events and clubs worldwide, has held a residency at four of Detroit's top clubs and produces music inspired by the city in which he hales from, Detroit. His record label Subject Detroit is futuristic and unearthly while still displaying the true essence of Detroit's Techno Soul.Bone's observation of the trend to book producers to spin, as opposed to actual DJs, prompted him to go against the grain and establish himself as a DJ first and foremost. He believes that an individual's talent should speak for itself and not be overshadowed or misconstrued by hype. DJ Bone describes himself as "an uncompromising, hype hating, 100% independent, real Detroit native come auditory striker and soul controller that cannot be bought".
