Biography

Jeff Mills, along with Robert Hood, Carl Craig, and Joey Beltram, is one of the biggest American names in techno. Championed for his music’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his intense, almost industrial DJ sets (often utilizing three or four turntables or CD decks and a drum machine), Mills is one of the most significant figures in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to earn an international reputation. A founding member of noted Motor City institution Underground Resistance, Mills helped build the artist roster and label ideology… Continue Reading

Well fellas, it\’s time to announce that 7 years after his debut, Antigone is finally releasing his first album via Token in November. After having coincided with a series of successful EPs on Token including last year‚Äôs Ostinato, Antigone returns to the label with \”Rising\”, his first experiment with the LP format. A sound experiment that the author creates to stimulate the mind and the body simultaneously.

\”Rising\” follows four EPs previously released on Kr!z\’ label since 2015, as well as on Oscar Mulero\’s PoleGroup, Indigo Aera, Zadig\’s Construct Re-Form, Concrete Music and Dement3d just before his 30s. That\’s why Antigone\’s schedule is busy more than ever, hitting the best clubs and festivals every week since years now.

As we were saying, \”Rising\” is electronic music for mind and body at the same time, between ambient, more IDM-ish, deconstructed rhythms and, of course, the most elegant and pure techno. 5 years residency at Paris\’ Concrete made Antigone one of the freshiest protagonists of the Parisian techno wave of the last years, indeed extensively endorsed by an exclusive techno label like Token.¬†

\”Rising\” is the 6th album published on Token ‚Äď two both by √ė [Phase] and Inigo Kennedy, and one by Sigha. Just in 2018, Token released an EP and an album by Inigo Kennedy, a 2×12\” by Oscar Mulero (2×12\”), two EPs by √ė [Phase], and other three EPs, by Sigha, former Voices From The Lake Neel and Copenhagen\’s Banke.

Stay tuned for more info. 

Overview: Continuing on from a series of successful EPs on Token including last year’s Ostinato, Antigone returns to the label with Rising, his first experiment with the LP format. Rising is an album that exerts itself to stimulate the mind and the body simultaneously. As such, it’s a record that gives the dramatic illusion of having a physical pulse.

The artist, real name Antonin Jeanson, already has a substantial body of work behind him. Considering his previous releases on Token, Indigo Aera, Construct Re-Form ,Concrete Music and Dement3d and his experience as a resident at Concrete in Paris, the level of artistic maturity he possesses while still being under 30 is highly impressive yet unsurprising at the same time.

For Rising, Antigone manages to oscillate between great ambient introspections carried by spacey synths and deconstructed rhythms, and elegant techno epics that are suitable for listening pleasure as much as for the pure abandonment of reality.

The title track’s delicate arpeggios meld into strings with stirring cadences, delivering above and beyond the standard intro, as it breaks and continues for a second round with added depth. Sands of Time stands out with tiny, breathy samples, pitch bent into something ever different from the last. Lost and Found’s granulated percussion sits adjacent to a cinematic sea of strings, while Out There provides a tasteful fragment of the sci-fi reverence many listeners demand of a techno album. Duality of Mind hints once again at the measured moods of Cantor Dust, his Token debut EP. It Follows alludes to supernatural horror with call-and-response variants on an almost microtonal theme. Infinite Limit’s tension from the offset brings a UK-influenced sound to the record, which continues with the IDM-feeling Dume and the equally glitchy and pulsing Love Field, while the in-between Irreversible is an immersive piece with a piercing high-end, guaranteed to induce a physical sensory response.

Something about Carl Craig:
Craig‚Äôs interest in collaboration continually grows. As \”Versus\”, one of his boldest¬†endeavors to date, Craig combines techno and classical music, opening himself up¬†to working in a new format by collaborating with orchestrator / pianist Francesco¬†Tristano, French orchestra Les Si√®cles, conductor Francois Xavier Roth and Moritz¬†Von Oswald. Inspired by well-received performances in large concerts halls in¬†Paris, Milan and Germany, Craig started the process of developing the project¬†into an album. He also performs as Trio alongside Von Oswald and Tristano. His¬†occasional appearances with the electronic collective jam band Narod Niki, alongside¬†Villalobos, Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Zip and others, have led to him appearing in
part live / part DJ gigs with Luciano. Additionally he‚Äôs taken to occasionally bringing¬†keyboardists like Mike Banks (UR), Amp Fiddler and Tristano into the DJ booth¬†with him for special one-off gigs. These mixed performances add some variety¬†in a non-stop DJ schedule that finds him spinning at top clubs worldwide. Craig¬†acknowledges, ‚ÄúTouring has always been the most important aspect of the music¬†industry for artists. There will always be that desire for human interaction.‚ÄĚ. Lets¬†also mention that he has recently performed live soundtracks to films, first in¬†Amsterdam then in New York, where he improvised live to an Andy Warhol film at¬†Unsound Festival. The fact is, unpredictability is the only predictable thing about¬†Craig and his music.
Outside of his Planet E recordings, Craig also continues to be one of the most sought-after remixers in the world. Craig has produced a seemingly never-ending list of remixes that now extends over 100 cuts, including mixes for the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Friendly Fires, Caribou, Theo Parrish, Gavin Russom & Delia Gonzalez, Tori Amos, Can, Goldfrapp, Unkle, Yello and others. He was nominated
for a Grammy in 2008 for his mix of the Junior Boys ‚ÄúLike a Child.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs been¬†proven that the remix is a valid art form,‚ÄĚ Craig said. ‚ÄúWhen I take on a project, the¬†ultimate goal is that it becomes my record. In many cases I‚Äôm actually recomposing¬†the track and the time that I spend reflects how personal it becomes.‚ÄĚ Fortunately¬†there is no shortage of artists looking for that Carl Craig touch, so rest assured¬†you\’ll hear Craig reconfiguring many of your favorite artists for years to come.
In the same way that he likes to make tracks he\’s remixing his own, Craig‚Äôs¬†commitment to his home in Detroit is also something very personal. After launching¬†a festival to rival that of any in Europe with the Detroit Electronic Music Festival in¬†2000, Craig has shifted his focus to even more ambitious goals with the creation¬†of his non-profit 501-C3 Carl Craig Foundation. ‚ÄúThe concept is to find ways to re-educate kids about what‚Äôs interesting musically that you can‚Äôt get on the radio‚ÄĚ says¬†Craig. Partnering with other non-profits to set up music scholarships, in 2010 the¬†Carl Craig Foundation presented a five-day workshop during the Movement Festival¬†at the Detroit School of the Arts, which exposed the students to professionals
in sound engineering, music festival production, record/music production and musical performance. Craig sees the primary goal of the foundation as a way “to develop a new music scene that follows the legacy of Detroit music being diverse and interesting, to spot out the most talented young musicians coming out of high

school and lend small financial grants to encourage music education at a higher¬†level.‚ÄĚ

school and lend small financial grants to encourage music education at a higher¬†level.‚ÄĚ

This commitment to Detroit music also extends to how his Planet E family of labels is run. Not only has it given a home to a wide range of Detroit-based artists including Francesco Mora Catlett, Naomi Daniel, Flexitone, Jason Hogans, Kenny Larkin, Monty Luke, Ezana Harris, Moodyman, Mike Agent X, Oliverwho
Factory, Recloose, Reference, Kevin Saunderson, Big Tone, Tribe, Urban Tribe,¬†and Chaz Vincent, it has also been serving as a distributor for Detroit imprints¬†including Derrick May\’s Transmat and Stacey Pullen\’s Black Flag. ‚ÄúThe reality of the¬†business is that you have to change. That‚Äôs a very difficult process, especially as¬†an independent. I made a conscious decision a few years ago to invest in what I¬†do. It‚Äôs turning it around and putting it into the studio and the label for my music¬†to develop. We‚Äôre fighters around here. We fight to find new ways of selling. We¬†do manufacture vinyl and there are people who want it. We‚Äôre fighting to keep it¬†alive. Fighting for music that we have a vision for,‚ÄĚ Craig say about Detroit. ‚ÄúMy¬†commitment to the city is like a commitment to your family. I‚Äôve been here all my¬†life and I‚Äôve seen great things happen elsewhere, why not be involved in making my¬†home great?‚ÄĚ
When Craig explains his philosophy, his wry sense of humor seeps into his¬†explanations of far-reaching concepts that merge worlds together. ‚ÄúI have a very¬†special career. When I feel that I‚Äôm tired of going on the road I can go in the studio.¬†When I‚Äôm tired of concentrating on the studio I can go on the road. I can work with¬†concert pianists, jazz musicians or rock guys. Very few people have that range of¬†interests. Very few people juggle a career that they choose specifically.‚ÄĚ No one else¬†can pull it all together quite like Carl Craig.

We don‚Äôt agree on much here at FACT HQ, but one thing all our staff are bonded by is a deep appreciation of ‚Äď bordering on unhealthy obsession with ‚Äď Carl Craig.
It‚Äôs hard to think of another artist who has so consistently blown us away, and in so many different ways. Where to begin? The two superlative albums he‚Äôs released under his own name (Landcruising andMore Songs About Food And Revolutionary Art)? How about the oneiric breakbeat techno he created as BFC and Psyche? Or his extraordinary work as 69, including what is, arguably, the very finest example of Detroit Techno as machine-soul (‚ÄėDesire‚Äô)? His forays into broken beat and nu-jazz (Innerzone Orchestra, The Detroit Experiment)? The turbo-charged disco derivations of Paperclip People? The wild, dancefloor-threshing electronics of Tres Demented? Or perhaps his collaborations with DJ Stingray, Moodymann, Anthony ‚ÄėShake‚Äô Shakir, Moritz Von Oswald and Tribe? Oh, and we‚Äôre forgetting the remixes, the bloodyremixes: inspired, heart-stopping reworks of Beanfield, Delia & Gavin, Cesaria Evora, Theo Parrish, Adult, E-Dancer, System Seven, Icognito‚Ķ. every one a classic.
Perhaps what’s most remarkable about Carl Craig, is that he is as adept, nay masterful, at spinning tunes as he is at making them. His 2002 double-disc The Workout must rank as the best mix CD of that, or indeed any other, decade, but the man doesn’t need his studio to bring it. He always delivers live, playing at a tempo that somehow feels all his own: driving, dynamic, but eternally unruffled, never losing its cool. He understands the magic that happens when robotic rigidity and loose-limbed funk work for and against each other; he grasps the importance of melody and a solid gold hook whilst being sophisticated enough to steer well clear of cheap trills. He is a man completely in command of his sound: every track he plays, whoever it’s by, seems to be invested with his unique character, his unique style and groove and energy. In other words, he makes every track his own, and that, ladies and gentleman, is the mark of the consummate DJ.
2012 has been a good year for C2 ‚Äď via his own Planet E label (which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2011) he has reissued his stunning 1996 Paperclip People album, The Secret Tapes Of Dr Eich, and released some thumping analogue techno tracks from the archive (Last Decade, as Carls Davis), and on December 1 he‚Äôll play b2b with Cassy for the huge Cocoon Heroes‚ĶInto The Magic party in London, along with Sven Vath, Mathias Kaden, Onur Ozer and others TBC.
FACT mix 345 is a live recording of Craig‚Äôs set at the Netherlands‚Äô Welcome To The Future festival on July 28. The set ‚Äď already streamed by the festival, but not available to download until now ‚Äď is an absolute corker, hard as nails but fleet-footed with it, with a few tracks that you know (the Craig mix of Faze Action‚Äôs ‚ÄėIn The Trees‚Äô has never sounded so imperious as it does here) and plenty that you don‚Äôt. There‚Äôs no tracklist for this one folks, so feel free to offer your own IDs in the comments section; in the meantime, plug in and bug the f**k out. – BY: factmag¬†

By the end of 2000 Joris began building a small studio to produce his own music, which led to his first release¬†called \’muted trax pt.1\’ on Keynote. His first EP was massive success, filling the record boxes of Carl Craig,¬†Laurent Garnier, DJ Rush and Technasia. In 2003 \’Lost memories Pt.1\’ was released on Technasia\’s SINO label¬†and was followed by \’Lost memories Pt.2\’ containing the anthem \’Incident\’ which was heard on dancefloors¬†around the world.
After the success of \’Incident\’, Voorn released his debut cd album called \’Future History\’ on the Sino label.
Encompassing 3 years of ideas and inspiration, the cd contains 20 diverse tracks, a seamless soundscape that represents his arrival as one of the most relevant techno producers of this time.
In the summer of 2005 Joris Voorn\’s new personal outlet called \’green\’ saw the light of day. \’A dedicated mind\’¬†was released as the first EP, which garnered success globally. He also completed his debut DJ mix CD for the¬†Fuse club in Belgium. After Dave Clarke, DJ Hell and Technasia, Fuse presented Joris Voorn to mix part 4 of their¬†international resident\’s dj mix albums. The mix contained over 40 tracks of timeless techno music mixed with the¬†help of Ableton Live for its endless mixing and editing possibilities.
In 2006 the sophomore release under Voorn\’s Green label, named \’MPX_309\’, was a crossover techno work that¬†was played out by techno, minimal, house and trance DJs. During the same year Voorn created his second¬†album, released worldwide in June 2007. This new piece of work called \’From a deep place\’ featured many¬†different styles of electronic music, ranging from atmospheric interludes to broken beats, house and deep soulful¬†techno.

Championed for his music’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his stripped-down, almost industrial DJ sets, Mills is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation. A founding member of noted Motor City institution Underground Resistance, Mills helped build the artist roster and label ideology (as well as much of its back catalog) with partners “Mad” Mike Banks and Robert “Noise” Hood before moving to New York in 1992 to pursue more vigorously his solo and DJ career (with a resident spot at the legendary Limelight and a recording contract with the noted German label Tresor). (Although rumors of bad blood between the early UR crew have been denied by all involved, Mills’ decision to split was apparently total, with Banks all but repudiating his involvement with Mills and Mills distancing himself from the continuing political militancy of Banks and the UR organization.)

Although he\’s technically a Canadian, Richie Hawtin will forever be associated with putting his beloved Detroit on the dance music map. Along with fellow Detroit pioneer Carl Craig, Hawtin helped break the second wave of Detroit techno. From north of Detroit in Windsor, Ontario, Hawtin has been a DJ, a producer, a record label owner, and a flag-waver for the underground Detroit scene which is only now getting the respect it deserves in the United States. Hawtin started his career DJing at underground parties in clubs like Detroit\’s Shelter. There he met his partner, John Acquaviva, and together they launched the influential Plus 8 Recordings label.
Hawtin created a unique techno sound, which is regarded as synonymous with the city of Detroit. That sound, electro house, is very minimal, yet highly danceable. He is known for his use of the Roland TB-303 bass machine and that sound has become inseparable from quality acid house and electro recordings. These days, Hawtin kicks around with a TR-909 drum machine. Hawtin signed a record deal with Nova Mute in 1993, and is considered a star in Europe, where he has enjoyed success with his project, Plastikman.
In 1994, rumor has it that Hawtin was scheduled to perform at a rave held inside the Brooklyn Bridge. Allegedly, while crossing the border from Canada, guards stopped him, assuming he was attempting to work illegally in the US due to the massive amount of equipment in his car. Supposedly he went home and recorded a set to DAT and shipped it to the promoters. To this day, no one can say for certain whether that headlining slot was live or on tape.
Today, he has gained the respect of a larger US audience. In May 2000, Hawtin performed at the first Detroit Electronic Festival alongside Derrick May, Juan Atkins and other techno masterminds. More than 200,000 people attended from all over the world.

Jeff Mills, along with Robert Hood, Carl Craig, and Joey Beltram, is one of the biggest American names in techno. Championed for his music\’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his stripped-down, almost industrial DJ sets, Mills is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation. A founding member of noted Motor City institution Underground Resistance, Mills helped build the artist roster and label ideology (as well as much of its back catalog) with partners \”Mad\” Mike Banks and Robert \”Noise\” Hood before moving to New York in 1992 to pursue more vigorously his solo and DJ career (with a resident spot at the legendary Limelight and a recording contract with the noted German label Tresor). (Although rumors of bad blood between the early UR crew have been denied by all involved, Mills\’ decision to split was apparently total, with Banks all but repudiating his involvement with Mills and Mills distancing himself from the continuing political militancy of Banks and the UR organization.)

Mills\’ UR-related releases (including \”The Punisher\” and \”Seawolf\”) are stripped-down and erratic, fusing elements of hardcore acid and industrial techno to the sparse Detroit aesthetic. Not surprisingly, his post-UR sound hasn\’t eased a bit, although UR\’s penchant for the four-track has been replaced by higher-quality production.
Prior to his involvement in UR, Mills was a DJ at Detroit public radio station WDET (he was also studying architecture at the time), spinning everything from Meat Beat Manifesto and Nine Inch Nails to Chicago house and underground Detroit techno. He began producing in the mid-\’80s, working with Tony Srock on the project the Final Cut.

Mills met Banks through a local garage group Members of the House, who Banks was working with in the late \’80s. Mills remixed a track on a Members 12-inch, and his and Banks\’ shared love for Chicago soul and the harder edge of Detroit techno blossomed into Underground Resistance as a combined business and creative enterprise. The pair, along with Robert Hood, recorded several EPs and singles together, including tracks such as \”Waveform,\” and \”Sonic,\” before Mills defected to New York in 1992 to pursue a residency at the Limelight club and a solo career recording for Tresor and his own label, Axis. Mills\’ discography includes two full-length volumes of Waveform Transmissions for Tresor, a live album and rarities collection for the British label React, and the first album in a new contract with Sony Japan, as well as a handful of 12-inch EPs on Axis and several collaborations with Robert Hood on his M-Plant label. In 2000, Mills took more memorable action by scoring a new soundtrack for Fritz Lang\’s 1926 film Metropolis, screened around the world at venues including the Museum of Music in Paris, London\’s Royal Albert Hall, and the Vienna International Film Festival.

Although he\’s technically a Canadian, Richie Hawtin will forever be associated with putting his beloved Detroit on the dance music map. Along with fellow Detroit pioneer Carl Craig, Hawtin helped break the second wave of Detroit techno. From north of Detroit in Windsor, Ontario, Hawtin has been a DJ, a producer, a record label owner, and a flag-waver for the underground Detroit scene which is only now getting the respect it deserves in the United States. Hawtin started his career DJing at underground parties in clubs like Detroit\’s Shelter. There he met his partner, John Acquaviva, and together they launched the influential Plus 8 Recordings label.
Hawtin created a unique techno sound, which is regarded as synonymous with the city of Detroit. That sound, electro house, is very minimal, yet highly danceable. He is known for his use of the Roland TB-303 bass machine and that sound has become inseparable from quality acid house and electro recordings. These days, Hawtin kicks around with a TR-909 drum machine. Hawtin signed a record deal with Nova Mute in 1993, and is considered a star in Europe, where he has enjoyed success with his project, Plastikman.
In 1994, rumor has it that Hawtin was scheduled to perform at a rave held inside the Brooklyn Bridge. Allegedly, while crossing the border from Canada, guards stopped him, assuming he was attempting to work illegally in the US due to the massive amount of equipment in his car. Supposedly he went home and recorded a set to DAT and shipped it to the promoters. To this day, no one can say for certain whether that headlining slot was live or on tape.
Today, he has gained the respect of a larger US audience. In May 2000, Hawtin performed at the first Detroit Electronic Festival alongside Derrick May, Juan Atkins and other techno masterminds. More than 200,000 people attended from all over the world.

Biography of Dinky:  Alejandra Iglesias was born in Santiago, Chile. Thanks to her mother’s influence, Dinky grew up playing the piano and listening to a lot of music. Since an early age she has studied several art forms and for many years trained as a professional dancer and choreographer. She danced in Peter Gabriel’s concerts when she was only sixteen and always felt comfortable on stage. As a teenager, Dinky grew up listening to bands like Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, Prince and The Cramps as well as classical and contemporary composers like Brian Eno and Eric Satie. In the mid nineties she was introduced to electronic music, thanks to her sister who was living in Berlin. Artists like Plastikman , Aphex Twin and Carl Craig where the first ones to fill her record collection. 
In 1994, Dinky met Ricardo Villalobos, Dandy Jack, Atom Heart, Luciano and many other musicians that where somehow related to Chile, listening to them she got deeply fascinated by this movement. She was only a teenager when she first learned how to mix records but nevertheless, was soon being exposed to big crowds in Chile. Her first visit to Berlin in 1994 gave her the chance to experience clubs like E werk and Tresor and also to listen to DJs like Hell, Stacey Pullen and Sven Vaeth. This gave her great inspiration from the start.

In the late nineties, Dinky moved from Santiago to Manhattan to join the Martha Graham School of Contemporary dance. As well as being involved in the Dance scene she also got into the NY Club scene, discovering American house and Detroit techno, polishing her DJing and soon making a name in the underground scene. The same year Dinky made her first visit to a recording studio where she composed a track together with her friend Jorge Gonzales, a Chilean pop star with whom she is still working now.
Shortly after that, she decided to write her own music and while only 23 was signed to the label Traum Schaallplatten where she recorded many singles and an album CD. As a result, Dinky got the attention from the German press and for the first time was invited to tour Europe and soon after to be part of the \”famous friends tour\” with Miss Kittin in America.
Dinky soon became one of the most popular female DJs in NYC. As well as DJing, producing and working in record stores she also ran her party in the heart of Chinatown together with her friend Magda. In 2003 dinky finished her second album Black Cabaret which got a lot of coverage from the media, unfortunately, at the same time she was forced to leave the US due to the post 11 new visa regulations. Soon after, she decided to move to Berlin.
In 2005 Dinky got signed by Sven Vaeth imprint Cocoon records, with her massive hit \”Acid in my Fridge\” burning dancefloors all over the world. The single became a top seller and was rapidly signed to international compilations like Ministry of Sound and Fabric and featured in mix compliations from Timo Mass, Toni Rios and Death in Vegas etc. Due to this success Vaeth asked her to be part of the Amnesia Ibiza campaign alongside himself, Miss Kittin, and Villalobos and also asked her to record the Cocoon Mix CD for the 6th season.
That year, Dinky played the opening party with Vaeth and remained a resident of the season achieving great popularity and respect worldwide. Alejandra has a very busy schedule and lives on tour, she has played Live at international festivals like Sonar, Ten days off, Sonne Mond Stern, Mutek and has DJed in clubs like The End, Cocoon, Privilege, Dc10 and Amnesia to name a few.
Dinky is also supported by the Circo Loco crew and has a large fan base in Italy and Ibiza. She currently has a residency at the famous Berlin club \”Panorama Bar\” and has recently founded her label Horizontal which has been getting lots of attention from the media and has also been licensed by the top labels Cocoon, Minus and Resist.
Currently Dinky is recording her album for Cross Town Rebels (UK) focusing on her label and continuing her usual touring. As a DJ Dinky can rock small underground clubs to massive arenas, her technique has impressed many crowds and her style reminds fresh and exiting without limiting herself to only one line. Her sets can range from house to deep minimal techno, experimental, old school and even funk and soul.

Something about Magda is an artist who can never be pinned down, no matter the timeframe or time signature. Any one of the Detroit-raised artist\’s DJ sets or productions breeds a rare feel of mystique and discovery. \”I\’m really obsessed with finding a line between things – between sounds and between genres. My influences come from a life spent in very different environments, which plays a huge role in the way I connect with music.\”
Dramatic sounds and eccentric basslines carry her multilayered sound, which veers everywhere from funked-out space disco to the intricately-programmed, metallic feel of Detroit to stripped down techno, all the way to Italian horror film soundtracks. The only thing that remains consistent is the element of surprise.
Her accidental entry into Detroit\’s underground party scene as a teenager was the kick-start she needed for a lifelong love affair. Soon all became a blur of \”cities, record stores, and parties.\” In 1998, she joined Minus and began touring the world as Richie Hawtin\’s sole opener. From there, her distinctive sound began to develop and the rest is history.

Mr. Marc Romboy knows what’s up! Being in the music biz for over a decade, co-founding and building up internationally respected dance-music labels and projects, Marc never got tired of coming up with fresh and innovative ideas in order to push the limits of electronic sounds.

Out of the dungeons of Moenchengladbach, Germany the thirty-something pulls the strings and makes things happen. His recent and most successful move definitely was to give birth to the already well established electro/house imprint Systematic in 2004 in Berlin which is a platform for his own productions as well as for hot and upcoming talents. Electronic house music with a certain breakdance appeal, reminiscent of old school Chicago dance floor insanity is Romboy’s true passion, when it comes to deejaying, producing and making decisions as the Systematic commander!

So far for the label he has collaborated with such high profiled artists as Booka Shade or Blake Baxter and signed tracks and mixes from producers like Martin Landsky, John Dahlbaeck, Olaf Poszgay, Phonique, Jence and Abysm. After only a couple of releases Romboy already managed to put his own stamp on the international club scene as a label-manager and a producer. Surely he’ll do the same as a DJ too. Nothing can stop this Teutonic boogie machine!

Something about Derrick May: 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 ‚ÄĒ the man who first introduced Atkins to Kraftwerk and early synth-pop ‚ÄĒ by creating elaborate megamixes for use on Mojo\’s radio show.¬†

After high-school graduation May attended university on a football scholarship. He soon tired of the academic life though, and returned to Detroit, where he worked in an arcade. During his frequent trips to Chicago to visit his mother, he had gotten hooked up with Chicago\’s familial house scene, then in its infancy. May was fascinated by the warmth and community feeling engendered at spots like the Power Plant and the Music Box, where DJs Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy used elaborate turntable set-ups and reel-to-reel machines to create mastermixes which re-invoked the spirit of disco even while pushing music forward. May brought Saunderson to the clubs several times as well, and stayed in Chicago for up to a year. When he again returned to Detroit, the need for a club to call his own caused May and the Deep Space family to found the Music Institute. It soon became the hub of Detroit\’s ever-growing underground musical family, a place where May, Atkins and Saunderson DJed along with cohorts Eddie \”Flashin\” Fowlkes and Blake Baxter. The club invigorated a badly fractured sense of community for many residents, and changed the lives of second-wave technocrats like Carl Craig, Stacey Pullen, Kenny Larkin and Richie Hawtin.¬†

Though May owned a Roland TR-909 synthesizer, he had done little actual recording by the early \’80s. When Juan Atkins hit the big time in 1981 with the local success of his group Cybotron, it influenced May to begin recording seriously. He debuted on wax with \”Let\’s Go\” (the third release on Atkins\’ Metroplex Records) and then founded his own Transmat label, a Metroplex subsidiary named after Atkins\’ track \”Night Drive (Time, Space, Transmat).\” May introduced Rhythim Is Rhythim, his most important guise, with the Transmat single \”Nude Photo.\” The producer soon followed up with more future classics of the genre: \”Freestyle,\” \”Strings of Life,\” \”It Is What It Is\” and \”Kaos.\”¬†

Of those first singles, \”Strings of Life\” hit Britain in an especially big way during the country\’s 1987-88 house explosion, and May became one of the first American techno artists to tour England. He was also recruited heavily as a remixer, for pop bands ‚ÄĒ eager to gain credit in clubland ‚ÄĒ as well as straight dance acts. A series of setbacks around the turn of the decade appeared to sour May\’s fortunes, though. The fertile British rave scene, which had grown in strength from 1986 to 1990, was overwhelmed by music growing ever more frenetic in order to compete with increasing drug intake. Quite soon, most of the successes in British dance music were native hardcore or rave-pop groups (Altern-8, Sunscreem, the Prodigy) while much of clubland forgot its American inspirations in favor of chart-bound novelty tracks.¬†

In 1991, May looked ready to return in a big way; at one point, he considered forming a Kraftwerk-styled techno super-group named Intelex with Atkins and Saunderson. Though negotiations to sign with Trevor Horn\’s ZTT Records looked promising, the deal eventually fell through, and May later declined several invitations by major labels. In fact, he quit making music for the most part by late 1991 (despite consistent rumors to the contrary), though he did work with ambient pioneer Steve Hillage on tracks for the debut album of Hillage\’s System 7 project. May continued to DJ around the world, and maintained his standing in the eyes of many top-flight producers. His Transmat label continued to find a home for many of the finest techno singles ever compiled, including tracks by Stacey Pullen\’s Silent Phase, Juan Atkins\’ Model 500, Joey Beltram, K-Alexi, Carl Craig\’s Psyche and Kenny Larkin\’s Dark Comedy. Finally, in 1995, Sony Japan compiled his most innovative tracks onto the single-disc retrospective Innovator, and May contributed a song to the soundtrack for Sony\’s video game Ghost in the Shell

Jeff Mills, along with Robert Hood, Carl Craig, and Joey Beltram, is one of the biggest American names in techno. Championed for his music\’s relentless pursuit of hardness and his stripped-down, almost industrial DJ sets, Mills is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation. A founding member of noted Motor City institution Underground Resistance, Mills helped build the artist roster and label ideology (as well as much of its back catalog) with partners \”Mad\” Mike Banks and Robert \”Noise\” Hood before moving to New York in 1992 to pursue more vigorously his solo and DJ career (with a resident spot at the legendary Limelight and a recording contract with the noted German label Tresor). (Although rumors of bad blood between the early UR crew have been denied by all involved, Mills\’ decision to split was apparently total, with Banks all but repudiating his involvement with Mills and Mills distancing himself from the continuing political militancy of Banks and the UR organization.)
Mills\’ UR-related releases (including \”The Punisher\” and \”Seawolf\”) are stripped-down and erratic, fusing elements of hardcore acid and industrial techno to the sparse Detroit aesthetic. Not surprisingly, his post-UR sound hasn\’t eased a bit, although UR\’s penchant for the four-track has been replaced by higher-quality production.
Prior to his involvement in UR, Mills was a DJ at Detroit public radio station WDET (he was also studying architecture at the time), spinning everything from Meat Beat Manifesto and Nine Inch Nails to Chicago house and underground Detroit techno. He began producing in the mid-\’80s, working with Tony Srock on the project the Final Cut.¬†
Mills met Banks through a local garage group Members of the House, who Banks was working with in the late \’80s. Mills remixed a track on a Members 12-inch, and his and Banks\’ shared love for Chicago soul and the harder edge of Detroit techno blossomed into Underground Resistance as a combined business and creative enterprise. The pair, along with Robert Hood, recorded several EPs and singles together, including tracks such as \”Waveform,\” and \”Sonic,\” before Mills defected to New York in 1992 to pursue a residency at the Limelight club and a solo career recording for Tresor and his own label, Axis. Mills\’ discography includes two full-length volumes of Waveform Transmissions for Tresor, a live album and rarities collection for the British label React, and the first album in a new contract with Sony Japan, as well as a handful of 12-inch EPs on Axis and several collaborations with Robert Hood on his M-Plant label. In 2000, Mills took more memorable action by scoring a new soundtrack for Fritz Lang\’s 1926 film Metropolis, screened around the world at venues including the Museum of Music in Paris, London\’s Royal Albert Hall, and the Vienna International Film Festival.

Although he\’s technically a Canadian, Richie Hawtin will forever be associated with putting his beloved Detroit on the dance music map. Along with fellow Detroit pioneer Carl Craig, Hawtin helped break the second wave of Detroit techno. From north of Detroit in Windsor, Ontario, Hawtin has been a DJ, a producer, a record label owner, and a flag-waver for the underground Detroit scene which is only now getting the respect it deserves in the United States. Hawtin started his career DJing at underground parties in clubs like Detroit\’s Shelter. There he met his partner, John Acquaviva, and together they launched the influential Plus 8 Recordings label.

Hawtin created a unique techno sound, which is regarded as synonymous with the city of Detroit. That sound, electro house, is very minimal, yet highly danceable. He is known for his use of the Roland TB-303 bass machine and that sound has become inseparable from quality acid house and electro recordings. These days, Hawtin kicks around with a TR-909 drum machine. Hawtin signed a record deal with Nova Mute in 1993, and is considered a star in Europe, where he has enjoyed success with his project, Plastikman.

In 1994, rumor has it that Hawtin was scheduled to perform at a rave held inside the Brooklyn Bridge. Allegedly, while crossing the border from Canada, guards stopped him, assuming he was attempting to work illegally in the US due to the massive amount of equipment in his car. Supposedly he went home and recorded a set to DAT and shipped it to the promoters. To this day, no one can say for certain whether that headlining slot was live or on tape.

Today, he has gained the respect of a larger US audience. In May 2000, Hawtin performed at the first Detroit Electronic Festival alongside Derrick May, Juan Atkins and other techno masterminds. More than 200,000 people attended from all over the world.
