Claude Young is a legendary figure of Detroit techno, a true catalyst of ideas. His collaborative nature led to the dawn of many important record labels like Seventh City, Frictional, Dow / Utensil and Acacia. His style as DJ is eclectic and electric, drawing comparisons to the prowess of Jimi Hendrix. Wherever he goes, he inspires people with his organic raw improvisational performance, and has seeded many scenes around the world. His pared-down tracks reflect the very essence of techno, intricate yet abstracted geometries. Claude Young continues to innovate as a solo artist and as one half of the techno duo Different World with long-time friend and production partner, Takasi Nakajima.
