Disconnected Presents 005: HPS? (LIVE) | Civic Underground | 18th June 2011
After firmly establishing ourselves as one of the top players in the Sydney techno scene, with help of Robert Hood, Marcel Dettmann and most recently Xhin, Disconnected is proud to turn the focus towards a local producer who is set to make some serious waves within the techno community. Over the past few months we've been working hard behind the scenes on our label, Disconnected Audio and are delighted to have signed HPS? to our artist roster, which already includes Disconnected residents Dopamine & Defined By Rhythm.
Having crossed many stylistic boundaries in the last 15 years, Gavan Griffin has become one of Sydney’s pioneering live electronic artists. Gavin has supported some of the biggest names in international techno, at some of Australia's best underground parties. HPS? has been billed along side names such as Carl Cox, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Chris and Julian Liberator , D.A.V.E The Drummer, Aphex Twin, Luke Vibert, DJ Misjah, Ben Sims, Space DJz (Ben Long and Jamie Bissmire), Virgil Enzinger and The Industrialyzer at events such as the Big Day Out, Swarm (resident for 7 years), Hardware, Future, Melbourne Techno Collective, Freaky Loops, Earth Dance and many others.
Gavan has released 3 live mix albums under H.P.S?, ‘Year of the Filter’ in 1999, ‘Geosynthetic’ in 2001 and ‘Fuckin’ Techno’ in 2004. H.P.S? also appears on Enigma Records Volume 3, Creatures of Habit with DJ Vic Zee and has several releases on SWARM Digital. Gavan is looking forward to a new sound as HPS Electroniks on our very own Disconnected Audio.
