Tastemaker, educator, sound designer, and Motor City proponet: our friend Mike Huckaby has done much for Detroit electronic music. The man behind the once legendary Record Time store has gathered an encyclopedic knowledge of music.He is a person who can see beyond the hype and divisions within the scene. With numerous highly acclaimed deep house productions and remixes on internationally renowned labels, Mike Huckaby brings the Detroit sound of deep house and techno with him. Possessing all the roots and culture of electronic dance music, he knows the balance between deep house and techno like no other. Chicago Vanguard Sound! artist Chris Mitchell‘s post-Chicago tripping sound finds its way back to the Globus decks; and Japan’s Shingo Suwa who began his career as a producer/DJ in 2004 and decided to move to Berlin in late 2005. In early 2008 he founded his own label Merkur Schallplatten, with seven EPs that have received wide underground recognition. Shingo Suwa’s fresh groovy vibes have kept him very busy in the scene. The basement Tresor Floor welcomes the Munich artists Dario and Marco Zenker aka the Zenker Brothers back to the decks. Ilian Tape was founded in 2007 by the Zenker Brothers together with Mueller. Dario & Marco are responsible for the musical part, while Mueller does all the graphic work. The label has picked up substantial international artists and we are happy to have them back in our home. Tresor resident Cédric Bros is Marcelus, a DJ & producer from Paris, owner of Singular Records and a mixing master behind the Tresor decks. Also one of Tresor Records’ newest family members, Marcelus‘ sets are consistently futuristic, arresting and always textural, and he is also releases on DJ Deep’s Deeply Rooted. Joining him is Claudia Anderson who debuted in Tresor last November, and who has two stellar releases on Marcelus’ Singular Records.
*** tonight Chris Mitchell will be replaced by Berlin-based, innovative American artist Aybee, chief alchemist of Deepblak Recordings and associations with many other top international labels.
