While insincerity remains the safety of many, American artist John Juan Mendez aka Silent Servant’s own productions are brutally honest and resolute, rendering irrelevant those mongering for light. Along with Regis and James Ruskin, Silent Servant founded the short-lived Jealous God label, a flag-bearer for the contemporary electronic avant-garde and a loyal ally to all mutant experimentalists. Deeply pensive and forward thinking, his sound is marked by a distinct blend of the disparate and divergent. An appreciation of warehouse techno, industrial noise and post-punk are evident, yet challenged and reworked to form a uniquely modern style – a vitality so controlled and concentrated that it captivates immediately. His live sets are another matter of inventiveness. The superfluous eliminated, Silent Servant has, for years, been rewiring the minds and moving the bodies of those seeking the most meaningful and potent energies that electronic music has to offer. Ron Morelli, the L.I.E.S. label founder, has given a simple answer as to why he started the label: his friends were making great tracks that wouldn’t have otherwise come out. Founded in 2010, L.I.E.S. quickly rose to critical acclaim among music critics and fans, its 12″ vinyl releases frequently quickly selling out after influential music stores like Hard Wax began to champion the label. Ron’s February 2018 track on the “Waves Of The Future” compilation, on Alessandro Adriani’s Mannequin label, is an excellent taster of this talented artist who we have welcomed to the Tresor decks on numerous occasions. Rhys Fulber is a Canadian electronic musician and producer. He is a member of the legendary groups Front Line Assembly and Delerium along with Bill Leeb, and now records on his own as Rhys Fulber and under the name Conjure One. A prolific and legendary innovator of industrial music, his latest release Your Dystopia, My Utopia reveals high-quality, intenseness, blending dancefloor, techno and EBM in dark, industrial-rooted moods. We welcome back Rhys to our home tonight. Tresor resident Mischa is a product of shifting technological landscapes. Nurtured by computerized machine music through radio waves from the hardcore continuum, he has developed a distinctly futurist vision for uncompromising techno music. Born in Berlin, Mischa inevitably found the legendary Hard Wax as a main educator in taste, and has worked there since 2010. In Globus: with a professional background in the maintenance, engineering and manufacturing of audio equipment, it comes as no surprise that Abby Echiverri has an impressive collection of her own hardware. Classically trained in violin, piano, vocals, and flute, as well as an experienced DJ, VJ and sound engineer, her knowledge of the technicalities of music is extensive. After moving to New York to study recording engineering and perform in post-punk bands, Echiverri quickly became a regular at local party institutions Wierd and The Bunker. As well as being an accomplished DJ, Abby Echiverri will often play live, composing new pieces for each event. The Bunker signed Abby for her debut EP “Ab Initio” that was released in June last year. DJ Slyngshot is the founder and operator of Yappin records. His sound is a set of familiar influences arranged in an unusual way. So far, the German producer has built his old-fashioned name, publishing quality tapes and recordings on his effective website until people started sitting down and taking note of them. Yappin Records boss, DJ Slyngshot may be keeping his identity secret, but he can not stop his reputation from growing and we welcome him to the Globus Floor tonight. The Houston-born, Brooklyn-based DJ Nihal Ramchandani has become one of the most quietly resourceful and fastidious spinners of techno in the scene. His taste tends toward edgy minimalism—beats glimmer as much as they stomp, and timbres shift more than tunes unfurl—with just enough curdled atmosphere (or spooky organ lines) to read as dark. He spins an edition of Body Music Therapy, a weekly Kundalini-yoga session with a dance-music soundtrack (excerpt, New Yorker magazine). Chambray is the alias of André Rost who has gone on to deliver some massive dancefloor heaters full of punchy house tracks such as “Anew” and “Rub”. Chambray is a Berlin-based producer signed to Jimmy Edgar’s Ultramajic imprint back in 2014 & since 2017 he’s releasing tracks independently on several record labels. As an artist and producer Chambray experiments a lot with new sounds, song structures and workflows to develop himself. Strongly influenced by techno and ghetto house, accompanies by african rhythms, his unique dealing with staccato stabs and special placing of ad-libs makes his sound distinctive.
