After a relaunch of fire in April, Freitag is back this time on the second Friday of May with special guest and one of our favorite producers of recent times.
(Crosstown Rebels / Cocoon / Rekids / Leftroom):
Over the past 5 years Nottingham born INXEC has been carving out a reputation as one of the most innovative producers in house and techno. With his tracks getting hammered by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Luciano and many more, its not hard to see why INXEC is in such high demand both in the studio and behind the decks.
Born in the early 80’s Chris Sylvester aka INXEC’s first foray in music production came in the unlikely form of the playstation. However it wasn’t long before he moved onto more advanced software and by the early 2000’s was releasing prog edged house music for labels such as Renaissance & Distinctive under the guise Sound Alliance.
Fast forward to 2003 and the burgeoning techno sound had bitten Chris, who by that time was playing regularly at venues across the UK, such as The Bomb & Stealth. By 2005 his production talents were honed to the extent that Jay Haze signed him to the much-converted Contexterrior label, and Chris proceeded to produce a string a highly acclaimed EP’s for the label, which brought him huge recognition within the techno scene and beyond.
A string of high profile remixes were to follow, massive labels like Yoshitoshi, Cr2, Tuning Spork, Renaissance, Greatstuff, Kismet, Saved, Esperanza and many more, as well as a highly acclaimed string of collaborations with long term friend Matt Tolfrey. Fast forward to 2009 and Chris’s production
talents were picked up by the worlds biggest techno label Cocoon, which has helped catapult the Inxec name into the upper stratosphere of the house and techno community.
During the last 4 years Chris’s constant dj gigs and touring has seen him play some of the worlds most prestigious clubs including Fabric, The Cross, London, Watergate Berlin, Minimal Hospital in Italy, as well as a much lauded residency at Harry Klein in Munich, which sees him grace the decks at least once a month where touring permits. With more hit releases and remixes on their way as well as tour of the USA, its clear that INXEC’s star is firmly in the ascendance.
Also on the night Freitag is proud to welcome back Ben Hoo(Kindisch / Get Physical / Kinetic Groove):
There aren't too many young producers these days that could lay claim to such a coup as remixing Fever Ray, Moby, M.A.N.D.Y vs Booka Shade and Tiga before you’ve even released a solo single. It takes true creative flair to carve out a new career solely by interpreting the work of others and London’s Ben Hoo has done just that.
Hoo’s debut solo release ‘Marea’ and the follow up EP ‘Modal’ have both been released on Get Physical sub-label Kindisch. 2012 sees further remixes commissioned for M.A.N.D.Y vs Adultnapper and Actor One to name but a few.
