★ Speedy J (Electric Deluxe / CLR / Warp Records)
Jochem Paap (the Rotterdam artist owes the nickname Speedy J to his DJ skills) is unanimously considered to be one of the first techno producers to come from the Benelux. Together with people like Laurent Garnier, Aphex Twin and Richie Hawtin he helped raising the genre just after it had escaped the Detroit delivery room.
Since the early nineties, Speedy J releases on labels like Plus 8, Warp and Novamute. But while techno develops into a dominating force on many dance floors worldwide, Jochem Paap, after the albums G Spot (1993) and Ginger (1995), turns left and heads for other exciting places.
On Public Energy No. 1 (1997) and A Shocking Hobby (2000) the sound wizard exchanges flowing, harmonious techno for a much more complex sound, filled with colliding samples, crackling rhythms and tremendously thrilling turns.
After fifteen years of techno Speedy J now has come full circle. But what a wide circle it was, and how fickle the trodden path. Over the years he has collaborated with video-artists, filmmakers and advertisers, made the pioneering DVD Umfeld, an audio-visual, electronic trip, which sets the standard for many composers who want to compose for six speakers in the coming years – remarkably made available as a free download on the internet.
But not only that, Speedy J has continuously been pushing the boundaries of electronic & experimental dance music. Blurring the lines between Live performance and Digital Djing, he fuses subversive electronics and peak time Techno. Together with his partner in crime Chris Liebing he started using Traktor and other Software technology on 4 laptops with hardware such as Machine Drum and 303’s to create a fully integrated set. Again he is spearheading a way of DJing that is picked up by a lot of other forward thinking electronic artists.
Logically, the releases on his label Electric Deluxe all feature tool versions, introducing the concept of creating unique live sets from parts as a natural evolution of Djing. Not only setting the bar for peak hour Techno madness, Electric Deluxe becomes the platform for his Collabs series that started on Novamute, as well as releases by open minded artists like Chris Liebing, George Issakidis, Tommy Four Seven and Terrence Fixmer to showcase the value of creative synergy using newest technology.
Another strong part of this idea is the introduction of a new series of techno events called Electric Deluxe presents, which in a young history of just a couple of editions brought major artists like Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, Radio Slave, Matthew Dear, Chris Liebing into play.
Speedy J’s musical vision is genre blurring, creative freedom at the highest level of innovation and quality, it is providing a platform for artists operating within any conceivable genre in the broad spectrum of techno to fully explore and embrace the ever-expanding technological possibilities.
★ Chris Stanford (EarToGround)
Chris is a long serving dj on London’s underground scene, having held many a residency since his first appearance’s in the clubs back in 2004. He’s played pretty much anywhere worth mentioning in the city and is often called upon to support when a techno legend is in town. His cool tempered attitude yet, confident approach to sets with his natural ability, to tease crowds of 200 to 2000. This has gained his respect with the local partygoers over the years who regularly attend his residency for the London afterhours Jaded at Cable. His addiction to the turntables is noticeable and the longer the set, the better, in his eye’s.
Along with Gareth Wild, Chris launched the EarToGround project back in 2010 and not long after helped shape the party brand into the label ready for it’s first release ETG001, where alongside studio partner Dax J he created the deep sensations of “Programm” the first original 12” which saw remixes from fellow London based techno heads “Shifted” and “Truss”. Following that single “Chris Stanford & Dax J” re-appear on ETG003 with another original piece, the hard hitting “Kommand” this time with a remix from Manchesters, “AnD”. Again he appears on ETG005 with Dax J with their hugely memorable synthlines in Synchronize. As well ETG, Chris has vinyl releases coming out on Tact Recordings and Falkplatz Records. He has been with EarToGround since the beginning and now holds a role as the label A&R guy and as a firm member of the team, working on carving the current and future plans of the young label.
★ Jack & I (Art of Dark / Entail Records)
After rising steadily through the primordial soup of London’s house music underworld for the past few years…successfully taking on all of the usual floors along the way, the last 12 months in particular have seen a rapid evolution for Jack & I toward the forefront of the current crop of ‘names to watch’.
A heavy release schedule now ensues with releases on Keep On, Zietlos, Tools & Stuff & NTR already gaining the love and support of Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Luciano and many more.
In addition their head residency with the secretive and extremely well respected ‘Art of Dark’ in London and the accompanying momentum, has lead to them playing across the city alongside the likes of Andrew Grant, Rodriguez Jr, Loco Dice, Hector, Maya Jane Coles, Christian Burkhardt, Clockwork, Egal 3, Martin Buttrich and many more in the past year, including three stand out sets for Wetyourself! at fabric.
