Electronic Explorations 357 - Donor

Greg Schappert (aka Donor) is a DJ/Producer based out of Brooklyn, NY. Having lived in cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Tokyo and Brooklyn, where he currently resides, Greg has acquired quite a few musical influences. However, it was the mid to late 90’s sounds of cities such as Birmingham and Detroit that laid the foundation for what originally sparked Greg’s interest in electronic music and for what would later influence his production.

BOILER ROOM - The Legend of Lory D

To the heads that know, Lory D is up there with the all-time greats. One of the chief instigators of the ‘Sound of Rome’ – a phrase he’d later send up – in the 80s-turn-90s, he took the embryonic sound of Detroit and Chicago and splattered it together at velocity with various iterations of ramped-up European rave and hardcore, both as a producer and head honcho of the Sounds Never Seen label. His sets at 69, an infamous club situated just outside of Glasgow, are the stuff of legend (as you’ll read below);
take the adage about The Velvet Underground‘s legacy and repurpose it for an entire generation of Scottish DJs, producers and label owners and you’re close. The dude gets more juice out of a 303 than pretty much anyone else on earth, except maybe Aphex Twin. Even then, it’s a close call...[]
