Deep Technique is back in full swing and ready to fire off into 2012 with a bang! In the past year we have become known for bringing the best in underground electronic music, positive vibes, and making booties shake on the dancefloor. To kick off our first event of the year we are very excited to bring you none other than JOHN TEJADA (Los Angels - Palette, Poker Flat, Kompakt, 7th City). While John is no stranger to our fine city, this is an up-close and personal chance to experience a DJ and Producer that's been a major influence in the techno community. Trust us, you do not want to miss this!
Normally associated with his peers in techno from Detroit, Europe and elsewhere in the US and the world, John Tejada has embraced electronic music as a personal frontier, expanding on his formidable resume as a techno recording artist as producer and remixer, DJ, and label owner. With dozens of singles, remixes, some film and TV work, and contributions to sample CDs to his credit, this recent expansion has born a slew of tracks deeply informed by his uncompromised aesthetic honed over years of diligent production which finds its roots in Detroit techno but references a far broader range of music, both in and outside of electronic music. His musically formative years were steeped in classical music, growing up in family of performing artists - his mother a soprano singer and his father a conductor - which then widened to include hip hop, DJing and finally, electronic music
