In Globus: Scotland-born Stephen Brown’s inspiration lies firmly in Detroit techno, his releases and live performances are proof of this. He chooses to give his music to labels that he respects, rather than make a certain style of music for a particular type of label. Starting off and moving through distinguished labels Djax, Soma, T&B, Drought, Scandinavia (to name a few), and started his own label in 2000 called Realtime Records. With projects on Transmat (via his friendship with Derrick May) among Stephen Brown‘s plethora of production work, we welcome him back after his memorable live Globus set last October. Roman Lindau is a young artist on Mike Dehnert’s Berlin label Fachwerk and music has always coursed through his blood. Even if he weren’t the accomplished producer and respected DJ he is today, the German audiophile would still be spending all his money on the stuff; giving over all his time to the art form. Eric Cloutier has established himself as an influential underground figure purely off the back of his DJ sets. Known to be able to tease and control crowds for extended periods of time without resorting to cheap thrills or lowest common denominator kicks, since first emerging in 1996 the acclaimed native Detroiter has been a resident at some of the most knowing venues around the world. House, dub and techno are all fair game for Cloutier, and be they deep and driving tracks or harder hitting selections, every one bridges the gap between the old and the new in seamless and unpredictable ways. As well as being involved with The Bunker NY label, Cloutier‘s first productions and remixes have been snapped up by Studio-R, Freund Der Familie and Steve O’Sullivan’s influential Mosaic. Back in 2010, Lando (a.k.a. Antaeus Lando Roy) relocated to Berlin. Strains of classic house, techno, acid, and electro have always coursed through his tracks, but the German capital has allowed Lando to filter his disparate influences through a distinct lens, one that favors pulsing basslines and trippy melodies. Getting sure footage in the best Berlin clubs, Lando has started up his own label, Myth Music, alongside fellow Berlin expat Aaron Castle (Hotflush, Boiler Room). On the Tresor Floor: Inigo Kennedy is a pioneering and respected techno and electronic music producer and DJ from the UK. He is well known for always bringing technical and creative originality and skill to his work. Owner of the innovative and genre defying label Asymmetric, Inigo Kennedy has also been responsible for a large and diverse back catalog of releases on a wide variety of labels and projects around the world. Returning Brit artist Stephanie Sykes belongs to the league of yet young artists, a fact that is hard to believe when you consider her Fullpanda debut “Luna Tactus” together with Fjäder aka Ina Matsdotter. Her ambient-techno concepts are accessible and positioned for special cold and lonely hours. This is due part to her residency at the revived tradition night Atomic Jam, where Sykes regularly provides the sound of one of techno’s cutting-edge epicenters: Birmingham. Idealism is the driving force behind all of Milton Bradley’s thoughts and moves – a fact especially prevalent in his musical output. With years of experience in Berlin’s electronic music scene, Bradley has built up a reputation as a decisive and forward-thinking artist with a versatile yet thriving sound. “Do Not Resist the Beat!” was the label he founded in 2008 and aside from much production work and touring worldwide, Bradley started a collaboration with Grounded Theory associate and good friend Henning Baer. To date they have released four highly acclaimed EPs presenting raw and effective quality techno.
