TRUNCATE (Droid Records/Truncate Rec) USA
Since being introduced to electronic music back in the early 90’s, David Flores aka Audio Injection has been hooked. At the early age of 15 he started Djing and playing out at local underground events and raves around the Southern California area. You would find him spinning various styles from house, acid, & techno to hardcore techno.
After years of Djing he then decided to learn to produce his own music, which landed him releases on techno labels such as Monoid, Stimulus, & local label Droid Recordings. Since being associated with local event production group Droid Behavior in 2003, you can find him as a resident at the infamous Interface warehouse events as well as a regular producer for Droid Recordings along with Drumcell (Co-Founder of Droid Behavior). He has also played together with Drumcell at Berghain, Berlin in 2010 & 2011 as well as playing gigs in Athens, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Cologne, Wales, and various gigs throughout the U.S. and Mexico.
In early 2011 David started a project called ‘Truncate’ which focuses on the deeper, darker, and more raw side of techno. His Truncate releases have been getting support from big players such as, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Jonas Kopp, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Dvs1, Luke Slater, Ben Sims, Silent Servant, Technasia, and many more.
With releases & remixes on labels such as Droid, CLR, Electric Deluxe, Sleaze, BluFin, Enemy, Impact Mechanics, Ground Factory and many more, Audio Injection continues to shape his own sound as well as collaborate with Drumcell to release more mind bending techno, putting Los Angeles & Droid Recordings on the techno map.
ADVANCED HUMAN (Synewave/Gynoid Audio) SYD
Inspired by the early electronic sounds of Detroit and Chicago, along with nascent German techno and the underground sounds of Belgian New Beat, Advanced Human struck out on his own versatile music career in 1988 as DJ Hi-Shock. Ever since - always striving to perfect his skills, he's taken both vinyl-spinning and production work to the highest level. In recent years he has developed and helms the wildly successful Elektrax Music label group (which includes Elektrax Recordings, Gynoid Audio, Android Muziq, Darknet & Hypnotic Room).
Under his recent Advanced Human alias, he has released his own sounds through labels like Gynoid Audio, Slap Jaxx, Impact Mechanics and Synewave - along the way being charted and played by the likes of Tommy Four Seven, Luke Slater, Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, Damon Wild, Len Faki and Dave Clarke amongst others.
Currently his trademark sound is based on exploring the uncharted terrains of Deep/Gritty Techno, that is rich with dub chords and crunchy atmospheres surrounded by intricate percussion and a drive aimed at the dance floor.

SIMON SLIEKER (Monotremes / Machine)
Simon Slieker’s 17 year pursuit as a dj and audio artist has been one of immersion into the dynamics of the dancefloor. His love of electronic music and dance culture is a lifelong unraveling of a techno ball of string; an examination of the dance journey, that most particular undertaking, evocative of inner worlds and old wisdom accessed by the body in motion. The sense of journey he creates as a dj is indicative of this: insistent and intense yet sensitive to the subtle textures which allow breath. The throughline, a mesmerizing and hypnotic drive. Vinyl, computer, controllers, the accessories of the art. Techno, minimal, progressive, tech house: the pigmentation of the soundscape.
In 2010 he launched his new label MACHINE to focus on the forward sounds of Techno
