The Black Dog was founded by Ken Downie along with Ed Handley and Andy Turner. Regarded as legends by some, the group are pioneers who, along with acts like Autechre, Aphex Twin, µ-ziq and LFO, came to define the techno movement known as intelligent dance music (IDM) in the early 1990s. In 1989, The Black Dog was unable to find a label to back its releases and started its own, Black Dog Productions, which released four vinyl records. After a few vinyl EPs on General Production Recordings, The Black Dog released its first full-length album Bytes on Warp Records on 15 March 1993. The albums Temple of Transparent Balls (GPR) and Spanners (Warp) followed. The music was often produced under a number of different names, such as Close Up Over, Xeper, Atypic, I.A.O., Balil and the Discordian Popes. The group did numerous remixes, notably for Björk, with whom it collaborated on "'Sweet Intuition" and "Charlene". In 1995, Handley and Turner left to focus on Plaid but Downie continued working as The Black Dog on his own for a while, releasing the solo album Music for Adverts (and short films). With new management, and an increased vigour, Downie then teamed up with Steve 'Hotdog' Ash and Ross Knight ("thek1d"). Though they completed over a dozen critically acclaimed remixes during this period, only one album was ever released: Unsavoury Products featured the talents of Parisian beat poet Black Sifichi on vocals.

Alberto Castellana a.k.a. A45 (born on Feb 8th 1992) got in touch with the world of music for the first time at the age of 8, when almost for fun, he started to listen to his father’s CDs, more specifically to the Pink Floyd’s “The Dark side of the Moon” and “Echoes”.
Captivated by the rising sounds of ‘electronic music’, he began to discover the real beauty of Techno. In 2002 he was impressed by some tracks from “Jazz N’ Groove- Soulfuric Session”, and, in those years, he decided to devote himself to the world of music production and entertainment. Thanks to some digital software he created his first work that gave him satisfaction and a stronger stimulus to continue along that road.
He then started to work and improve himself and to take his knowledge further, discovering, as a consequence, the deeper essence of the Deep House with Frankie Knuckles, Kerri Chandler, Louie Vega, Miguel Migs, Roger Sanchez and all the major exponents of the movement. Improving his knowledge, he understood how modern music has been influenced by the music of the past. He is enchanted by Miles Davis’, John Coltraine’s, Charlie Parker’s, Bill Evans’, Oscar Peterson’s e Niels Pedersen’s Jazz, but also by Jeff Mills’, Octave One’s, Surgeon’s, Kenny Larkin’s, Derrick May’s and Carl Craig’s Techno Detroit.
Svreca is a Madrid-born Dj that combines the coolest and most sophisticated electronica with the most abstract and complex techno, and sometimes his experimentation leads him towards the most unusual textures and rhythms for the dancefloor.
In 2006 started his own label, Semantica Records.
Los Hermanos was originally a collaboration between Gerald Mitchell, Dj Rolando and Mike Banks of Underground Resistance. They raised the standard and destroyed the boundaries between Techno and House by fusing the funk and soul of Detroit Techno with the feel of latin rhythms and melodies after Rolando’s Departure to pursue a solo career, Gerald moved Los Hermanos in a slightly different direction without sacrificing any of the sound individuality or quality. Gerald Mitchell born and raised in Detroit’s West Side is a Musician Producer Dj, Band Leader, and Sonic visionary whose music has made a huge impact on Detroit house and techno.
From his early work on Underground Resistance's Interstellar Fugitives (UR 044 aka Soul Saver) project to his Celestial Highways classic on Metroplex and early house productions on Soul City records 1997,1998 distributed by 2030 submerge. his music has always been recognized by it soulful strength. Gerald’s work with Underground Resistance/ Mike Banks and Dj Rolando led to the anthem 'Knights of the Jaguar; and now he has brought his experience as a live musician into a group that expresses jazz fusion, gospel and funk into stunning electronic music worldwide know as LOS HERMANOS. for discography www.discogs/loshermanos After the release of the album “On Another Level” and international tours as Los Hermanos Live, Gerald has begun his solo career with a new project ready for release late fall 2010

Mark Flash always knew where he needed to be. When other kids were running the streets, he was trying to figure out how to get into the clubs. There were DJs in the neighborhood who would let the younger kids who knew what was up hang out with them, watch them practice spinning at home. And, from time to time, some DJs would let Mark handle their records, carry them into the clubs. With underground parties and raves, the word began to spread that Mark Flash was a name to be loved if you were a party or club goer. Thanks to a tip from a longtime friend, DJ Rolando of the techno terrorists, Underground Resistance, Flash began flexing his musicianship as a behind the scenes producer for the house music label, Soul City. Merging house, techno, and funk, Mark Flash stands as one of the few DJ/producers who can legitimately play an instrument and read music.
Mark Flash has since joined forces with Gerald Mitchell and Ray 7 which make up, Los Hermanos. Travelling internationally, he has shown the world that there’s more to him than just the typical DJ. With skills in keyboards and percussion, Mark Flash puts on a unique show utilizing his talents to form a musical hybrid. As a member of Underground Resistance [UR-078], Flash has taken on multiple projects, from remixes, new releases, mix cd’s, collaborations with other producers, performing at local/ international events as well as charity benefits…just to name a few.
