DeFeKT (aka Matthew Flanagan) has been a tireless advocate of true electro and techno, steadily honing his hardware based sound that has earned him admirers all through the electronic music community. DeFeKT released an 8-track mini album on a long-running Irish label in 2010, which gained huge support, that has continued steadily since. A slew of 12″ EPs and remixes have followed under his DeFeKT/ESS and Octal Step guises on an array of top labels. DeFeKT's long-time devotion to analog drum machines and modular synths make him a leading authority on both, as exemplified in the exciting, dynamic nature of his live sets and productions.
