Cari Lekebusch, Tim Baker, Jason Patrick
Primary Nightclub and VOLATL Events Welcome Cari Lekebusch (H- Productions) to Chicago
On November 15, 2012 VOLATL Events brings Cari Lekebusch to Chicago hot spot Primary Nightclub, for his first Windy City gig in nearly 5 years. Lekebusch, who hails from Sweden, is a true pioneer in the development of the modern genre of popular techno music. Joining him behind the decks is Detroit techno mainstay, Tim Baker, who’s Elephanthaus Records imprint will see its 15th year of production this this fall. Also taking his turn will be Jason Patrick, who heads Klectik Recordings, a Chicago based label.
A leading figure in the second generation of techno producers to emerge from the electronic music explosion of the early 1990’s, Cari Lekebusch has sustained a twenty-year career in music through an unwavering commitment to quality and an unquenchable desire to constantly move things forward. Currently enjoying a particularly inspired period of productivity, Lekebusch recently released his latest studio album – ‘You Are A Hybrid Too – on his Stockholm-based H-Productions imprint. Received with universal praise from press and peers alike; the relevance to the modern music market of his twentieth studio album in his twentieth year as a recording artist has proven, yet again, that Cari Lekebusch’s reputation as an enduring and proactive force within the techno community is rock solid; maintaining his profile within a scene he was partly responsible for creating. Credited as being the figurehead of the globally influential Swedish Techno scene that subsequently spawned internationally recognized names such as Adam Beyer, Jesper Dahlbäck, Alexi Delano and Joel Mull, Lekebusch’s standing as a studio innovator and production authority is well documented. He has borne many pseudonyms over the course of his illustrious career to date including Fred, Mr. Barth, Braincell, Shape Changer, Vector, and The Mantis as he has experimented with sounds across a range from techno to electro; releasing on both seminal techno labels such as Drumcode, Truesoul, Novamute, Soma, Primevil, Masters of Disaster, Fine Audio Recording, Harthouse, Turbo, Mote Evolver, 430West and Tresor, as well as cutting edge new-school imprints like International Sound Laboratory, Mindshake, 8 Sided Dice and Sleaze Records.
