Alan Oldham aka Dj T-1000 at K1971 Podcast Series



A lifelong cartoonist and graphic designer, a young Oldham published his own indie comic book "Johnny Gambit" in 1987 to local notoriety. Hired that same year by his childhood friend Derrick May to illustrate several memorable pieces for his new Transmat label, this led to Oldham's very first involvement in the fledgling techno scene. More art requests quickly followed, most famously from the Djax-Up-Beats label (NL), where his art took center stage for many years (the lone EP that Oldham produced for Djax, under the name Signal To Noise Ratio, brought home a 1991 Detroit Metro Times Music Award for best single in "Detroit Is Burning"). At the same time, college-student Oldham was hired at local radio station WDET, hosting Detroit's first-ever all-electronic radio program, "Fast Forward," introducing artists like UR, Richie Hawtin and Carl Craig to local airwaves.
Five years later, Oldham found himself under the tutelage of UR's Mad Mike Banks. Initially hired as UR's "Minister of Information," working side-by-side with Rob Hood and others in the office, Oldham was eventually tapped to replace his departing friend Jeff Mills as DJ on UR's world tour (quitting WDET in the process), and DJ T-1000 (and his label Generator, distributed by Submerge) was born. Big shoes to fill, but he was up to the task. For a year afterwards, Oldham toured with Banks in the UR techno boot camp. Since those long-ago days, a solo Oldham continues to rock crowds in Berlin (with an unofficial residency at Tresor), Milan, Barcelona (unofficial residency at Moog), Madrid, London, Tel Aviv, Tokyo and all points in between with his own no-nonsense brand of bangin', funky-ass techno. When DJ T-1000 is on the flyer, fans know he's bringing the ruckus. In 2004, Oldham finally left a flagging Motor City for the Midwest boomtown of Chicago. And in 2005 he finally established his permanent European base in the world's latest electronic music capital, Berlin. When he's not behind the decks or in the studio producing electronic dance music for labels like Tresor Berlin, Inzec (CH), Minimalsoul (CH), or his own Pure Sonik and Generator imprints, Oldham has provided artwork for the electronic music industry for almost 20 years. Also, his drawings and large-scale paintings have been on display in art galleries in Chicago, Berlin, Paris, Los Angeles, and most recently a sold-out opening in Amsterdam.

Dabub at Secret Thirteen Mix #100





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.

[Video] Shapednoise liveset at Boiler Room * Berlin




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.

[Video] Robert Hood at Crime Fest 2013




Robert Hood makes minimal Detroit techno with an emphasis on soul and experimentation over flash and popularity. Having recorded for Metroplex as well as the Austrian Cheap label, the French label Logistic and Jeff Mills' Axis label, Hood also owns and operates the M-Plant imprint, through which he's released the bulk of his solo material. Hood was a founding member, along with Jeff Mills and Mike Banks, of the Underground Resistance label, whose influential releases throughout the early and mid '90s helped change the face of modern Detroit techno and sparked a creative renaissance. Infusing elements of acid and industrial into a potent blend of Chicago house and Detroit techno, UR's aesthetic project and militant business philosophy were (and remain) singular commitments in underground techno. Hood left Detroit (and UR) with Jeff Mills in 1992, setting up shop in New York and recording a series of 12-inch EPs . Through the mid '90s, Hood has focused on his solo work, setting up M-Plant in 1994 and releasing singles such as "Internal Empire," "Music Data," and "Moveable Parts." Although his desire to remain underground has been replaced by an urge to reach a wider audience, Hood remains fiercely critical of artistic and economic movements destructive to inner-city communities and has combined his musical enterprises with outreach and social activist ends. His debut album “Wire to Wire“ took Hood's hypnotic minimalism to entirely new depths and territories, whilst his latest album 'Molecule' under the nickname “Monobox“ released on Logistic takes his productions onto new levels of musicality and sophistication within the world of electronic music.

Kevin Saunderson liveset at CODE 10 Anniversary [23.11.2013]




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.

The Noisemaker liveset at TheFrag #01 * http://www.witclub.net/




Riccardo was born in 1987 in Treviso, a town near Venice.
He had his first approach with electronic music at the age of 11. A simple interest turns into something more at the age of 14, when he starts performing his DJ sets. In 2007, after a few appearances at some local clubs and underground parties, he decides to turn his attention towards the construction of a Live Set, without however omitting the charm of vinyls in his DJ sets. From 2009 onwards, you can find several works on various labels under the name The Noisemaker. He is currently working with labels such as Par, M_rec, Raw Waxes, Wood n Bass. In his LiveSet he brings out an hypnotic and aggressive atmosphere.
In 2010, feels the need to deepen his knowledge in the arts and decided to enroll in the course of New Technologies for the Arts Academy of Venice. 2013 is the year of the launch of his own label NMKrec, that will be the main holder of his work.


Inigo Kennedy - 2013 Token Podcast



Born in North London 1972, Inigo Kennedy 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. 

Aphex Twin liveset at All Tomorrow's Parties 2007






Richard D. James, known by many as Aphex Twin, began his career in the mid 80's composing jungle, industrial, and ambient techno for the U.K. dance scene. He began creating music using custom synths and components. As his early album titles indicate, such as Analogue Bubblebath, he used analog synth equipment to create his sounds.
In the early 90's he shifted from doing dance-ish tunes to more abstract rhythms, using sampled sounds. While the fundamentals still remain in place, his new computer generated tunes have more depth and dimention. The 1996 release of "Richard D. James album" features entirely computer composed music. Songs range from graceful melodies backed by insane drum patterns, such as the "Girl/Boy Song", to raunchy jungle, such as "Peek 824545201", to his singing debut in soungs such as "Beetles" and "Milk Man." Many of Aphex Twin's early albums appeared under different names, such as Caustic Window and Polygon Window. While his early albums such as Analogue Bubblebath are no longer in print, Polygon Window is still available at many music stores worldwide. His best works really begin with the album Classics and Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (aka Vol. 1). These two albums are still available in North America on import, which means they'll be costly, but worth it. Classics explores his early analog tunes, many of which are jungle-ish. One of his most well known jungle style dance tracks is "Digeridoo" (track 1 on Classics). The album also features one of the most well known Aphex Twin tunes entitled "Analogue Bubblebath 1." Selected Ambient Works 85-92 is a collection of mellow ambient dance tracks. While I can't explain it in detail, it's worth checking out. Aphex Twin then released Selected Ambient Works Vol.2. While some praised this as "music for the new milennium" many thought Aphex Twin lost his touch. The album is a 2 disc set of abstract beats and sounds. Have you ever seen the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey"? Remember the sound the monolith made? This album is similar. Not exciting, but some enjoy it.
Following SAW2, Aphex Twin released two maxi-singles (4 maxi-singles overseas), entitled "On" and "Ventolin." On his currently one of Aphex Twin's most famous tracks. On is an ambient tune backed by analog drum beats. The On maxi singles feature some abstract (yet annoying) tracks, but On and its two remixes (by Reload and mu-ziq) are worth the price. Following On came the Ventolin maxi-single (which was divided in two for overseas release). Ventolin is 12 tracks of jungle and ambient-ish tunes, created using odd instruments such as a Casio drum synth. It's not for everyone, but interesting to say the least.
Aphex Twin blew away critics of his SAW2 album with the 1995 release of "... I care because you do." The album featured straight up jungle tracks, such as "Icct Hedral" and "COME ON YOU SLAGS!", ambient grooves, such as "MOOKID" and "Alberto Balsam", and tracks that were somewhere in between, such as "Start as you mean to go on." This album was hailed by many has his best work and recieved rave reviews.
Then came the release of the much awaited "Richard D. James album." This album was a bit of a change, as Aphex Twin chose to use computers almost exclusively to create his music. The tracks are all relatively short (about 3 minutes or so), but sweet. Some beautiful melodies grace the album, such as "4", "Girl/Boy Song", and "Fingerbib." There are no jungle tracks to speak of, but the majority lie somewhere in between jungle and ambient, laced with orchestral sounds. This album also marks the singing deput of Aphex Twin in the songs "Beetles" and "Milk Man." And ya know what? He's pretty good at it, too! It's a wonderful album that shouldn't be missed.
As Richard (Aphex Twin) has admitted, he will continue to use computers to create his future music. Expect interesting things in his future releases including more singing! He has also stated that he plans to release some older tracks, including THE FIRST TRACK HE EVER MADE!, under the old Caustic Window name sometime in the future.
Aphex Twin is a unique artist who somehow manages to walk the tightrope between jungle and ambient while still remaining cutting edge. He is an artist that has a cult following throughout the world, and it's clear why. He creates music that is unique and so different from anything available today.

Surgeon - Rinse FM [13.11.2013]


Birmingham techno artist Anthony Child has rapidly built a solid and, to a certain extent, innovative catalog of minimal dancefloor techno since his Surgeon releases began appearing in 1991. Compared favorably with Detroit original Jeff Mills from his earliest Downwards singles on forward, Child's tracks have been a mainstay in the popular Motor City DJ's sets. Although Surgeon releases have worked an increasing affectation for acid and trance, an economy of sound and basic hardness combine his and Mills' sound.
A noted and increasingly popular DJ himself, Child grokked his skills from hip-hop and electro jocks ("Tour de France" is a mainstay of his DJ sets), filling out his style with a driving toughness and appreciation for rapid cutting and flipping. Surgeon's entry into production was also noteworthy; urged on by producer Mick Harris (Child is a fan of Harris' Scorn project), the former Napalm Death drummer locked Child in his tiny studio, imploring him to "go mad." The result, the self-titled debut EP, was released on Downwards, and was instantly hailed as some of the highest quality U.K. techno of its time. Releases for Soma, Blueprint, Ideal Trax, and the ultra-exclusive Tresor label followed, with the debut LP, Basic Tonal Vocabulary, appearing on Tresor in 1997. Balance followed in 1998, as did Force & Form in 1999.
More recent additions to his repertoire include releases on his Counterbalance imprint as well as collaborations with Regis as British Murder Boys, resulting in tracks which take a tone far darker, denser, and more industrial than those from his Tresor years.
Equally influenced by early electro-pop innovators like Tomita and YMO, experimental groups like Can, Faust, and Suicide, and the tough grit of American electro and techno (Robert Hood, Hashim), Surgeon's mash-up is both straightforward and subtly experimental. Further influences from Coil, Psychic TV, and Whitehouse in recent works and DJ appearences do not go unnoticed.

Mike Stern at Adventures in Techno Soul Radio Show #3 @Strom:kraft Radio



Mike Stern discovered house and techno music at the start of the 90’s through Laurent Garnier’s shows on the French FM radio Maxximum. Intrigued by these new styles of music, he began to form his own personal musical tastes spending his spare time in record shops and rave parties. He began djing in 1994 and his love quickly grew for the underground techno sound which was coming out of England, Germany and US. In the late 90’s, bored by the techno sound, he discovered drum & bass/jungle and started to dabble in these genres. After a 6 year break from music, he went back to business. He refined his style and began to mix seamlessly between genres (techno, industrial techno, electro and UK Bass) in his sets. In 2011, his meeting with Tyler Smith aka Black Smith Craft allowed him to become resident of the B-Side show on Livesets.com and moderator of the Technotherapy group, a rising musical group on Soundcloud. At the same time, he makes some podcasts and some sets for other radio shows, and continues his musical quest.




Sonics' microcosm, digital snapshots,neon signals and noise's fragments who come from radios or dismissing factories.... Once more landscape will obtain meaning * the immaterial, the spirituality and electronics are synonyms * Adventures in Techno Soul is borned during a nignt of discussion, plots of past experiences, sharing intents …. in 2 words : TECHNO MUSIC 
a new monthly appointment on stormkraft radio ….. a new rhizome to decline a new immaterial geography made on comunication between tribes of people who think the techno music....

Samuel Kerridge - Train Wreck Mix




Samuel Kerridge has quickly made a name for himself, responsible for one of 2012's most remarkable and self assured debuts 'Auris Interna' on the ultra-picky Horizontal Ground. This didn't go unnoticed by Downwards label boss Karl O'Connor, and Samuel followed with two more critically acclaimed EP's.
Kerridge has found a perfect home for his highly original productions of unfettered sonic exploration, re-defining the relationship between rhythm and sound design with decimating kick drums and feedback, and unearthly amounts of distortion until you're left with a dripping, toxic style of techno.  It’s not from Detroit, but it’s more about where Kerridge is at – creating seductive, darkly soulful music.  Not afraid to question people's perceptions of clubbing, he Co-founded the Contort events in Berlin, not only as an outlet for his own artistic vision, but to bring back a level of creativity and magic to a stale club scene. With compilations, remixes, and an album all due out before 2013 closes, the future is extremely bright for this artist.

Terrence Parker at Melbourne Deepcast 104:



Detroit has been credited as one of the Soul Music capitals of the world, spawning legendary artists like The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross just to name a few.

Claudio PRC w/ Ness liveset at Louver, Tokyo [02.11.2013]


Claudio PRC aka Claudio Porceddu



Experimentation and sound research have always been key points of growth in art and music for Claudio PRC. Raised in a small Sardinian town (Italy), he has always been in close contact with all kinds of music, but the influences received by the strong Techno wave coming from Detroit and the special attractions for Concrete and Electroacoustic music definitively marked the development of his current musical ideology. The experiences that derive from his personal observations in the field of electroacoustic music are combined with the continuing study of lean and simple rhythmic structures. His feelings and adventures turn into deep and hypnotic atmospheres that are intertwined with abstract and sharp rhythms. Claudio currently releases music on German label Prologue and also appeared on labels such as Aconito Records and Stroboscopic Artefacts. His DJ sets are characterised by the same concept that distinguishes his music, and range from complex Ambient to sophisticated Techno.

Ness



Ness began his electronic music journey in the late 90's and his evolving interest and passion soon encouraged him to start a dj career experimenting with various genres – from trance to pure experimental. With a background in sound engineering and many years of research and fine-tuning, he gradually developed a distinct personal style with a strong focus on atmosphere combined with hypnotic vibes. In 2007 he opened his own record store in his hometown in Sardinia (Italy) and 2 years later he founded his first label - Mono Records.  Acknowledged for his individual style, Ness has worked with labels like Phorma (Sweden), Synewave (USA), Dynamic Reflection (The Netherlands), M_Rec Ltd. (Italy), Informa (UK), Prologue (Germany), etc. and collaborated with artists like Claudio PRC, Deepbass, Attemporal, Rasmus Hedlund, etc. 
Currently he is running Frames of Thought - a new independent platform for releasing conceptual techno music together with Scam. and Alessio Pili. Ness music and dj sets are well accepted and defined as an exploration of wide range of deep and hypnotic techno and ambient soundscapes.

Go Hiyama - One Mix * November 2013







Born in south Japan, Go Hiyama discovered techno music in 1994, when he got exposed to the sounds of such artists as YMO, Kraftwerk, Jeff Mills, Fumiya Tanaka and labels like Warp and Subvoice among others. In 1995, Go Hiyama decided that it was time to start making his own tracks. His thinking for minimalism isn’t reduced to just music, so his tracks are always built by very different ideas and music styles.
Several european artists like Oscar Mulero and James Ruskin have always supported his productions, releasing Go Hiyama’s material on his own labels Coda and Warm Up.
Go Hiyama has released over 30 original productions on many different labels like Perc Trax, Token, Audio Assault, Planet Rhythm and the already mentioned Coda and Warm Up. His demand is rapidly growing worldwide.
