Sone is Seattle, Washington based DJ and producer Brian Sonnleitner. His first exploits into live music was being immersed in the underground punk scene in Wisconsin during the mid/late 90’s. Fast forward to now, while keeping the same energy and ethos of his early experiences, Brian is a DJ of well over a decade with his sets trending towards the driving and tracky side of techno.
2008 brought Sone into the realm of production with his music exploring a heavier, stripped down sound. His original productions and remixes have received support from Ben Sims, Reggy van Oers, Joachim Spieth, Juho Kusti, TWR72, Soolee, and many others. His tracks appear on his home label, From 0-1, which he runs with long time friend Milkplant; while surfacing on other labels such as Android Muziq, Webuildmachines, Rheostatus, and Darknet.
US based artist, Milkplant (Justin William Pennell) is originally from Milwaukee,Wisconsin; but has lived in Oakland, California since 2010. He relocated to the West Coast in 2004, lived in Seattle for six years, and started the internationally recognized Techno label and artist collective, From 0-1; with fellow artist, Sone. Schooled in the Midwest and developed on the West Coast, his work encompasses over 30 years of combined DJ/production experience, and 9 years of record label operations.
In autumn 2014 he released 'Time Dilation', a four track 12" EP on From 0-1. Charted by Gary Beck, Paul Mac, and Ben Sims at #2, #1, and #26 in their November 2014 Juno charts, this was a turning point for him. Since then he has released on Planet Rhythm, Wall Music, Dark Net, Etichetta Nera, From 0-1, and Excise. His productions have drawn critical acclaim from many notable artists; showing up in mixes and charts by Ben Sims, Cari Lekebusch, Jerome Sydenham, Bryan Zentz, Joachim Spieth, Tommy Four Seven, Submerge, Tadeo, Mattias Fridell, Mr. Jones, Electric Indigo, David Meiser, Samuli Kemppi, Arnaud Le Texier, Abstract Division, DJ T-1000, and many others.
As a DJ he can be found playing a combination of vinyl and CDJs. He has played in various cities across the US, most notably in Detroit at the Blank Code - Droid Interface/Scene party for Movement 2016. His mixes have been featured on Droid's D-Node podcast, the Warsaw Torture Boyz podcast, Blank Code podcast, Drone podcast, and Error Sessions. Upcoming releases: “The Distance” 12” vinyl EP arrives autumn 2017 on San Francisco based label, Excise; his remix of Sone’s ‘Australis’ arrives on 12” vinyl late 2017 via From 0-1.
Forming a sound both familiar and foreign, existing in the hours of the day where you allow your head to open, relax, and reinvent, Cyanwave creates post warehouse rhythms layered with dub soundscapes. Embracing the spirit that created the Northwest, home of refugees and adventurers, Cyanwave’s hypnotic journey takes the listener from the dance floor to the headphones and back around. With no final destination, the aim is exploration itself.
The exhibition of actions, impulses, or behaviour that are stimulated by internal processes. Action. Reaction. Sound is a transmission of energy. Waveforms arranged to create new combinations of rhythm, texture, and harmonic frequencies.
Inspired by the raw essence of spontaneous creative impulse, coupled with an understanding of past and current trends in electronic dance music, the music of SPON.10.80 explores the sonic territory between techno and breakbeat arrangements, designed to create new experiences on the dancefloor of space and time.
Known for taking his DJ sets to the next level, continuously rocking crowds time and again, Rhines has developed a style and honed a technique that is all his own. Playing a prime selection of Progressive, Techno, Tech-House, Psy and Breakbeat sources, his style is difficult to pin down. His sets tend to defy the idea of a single genre, incorporating multiple styles into a tight, fluid & cohesive mix that takes the dance floor to new heights, becoming something new and exciting every time.
A love for rhythm and syncopation, movement and energy, and that deep, dark and dirty bass has always been the driving force behind his mixing, programming, and track selection. Rhines is a master in hypnotizing dance floors making each track he drops a part of the whole sonic experience. Break the Beat or Four to the Floor... Rhines is tapping into new dimensions of aural satisfaction with his infectious sound.
One of Innerflight Music's original DJs and co-conspirator of the label, Rhines arrived in the Northwest as a permanent fixture on the Seattle scene, producing events and holding down a 7+ year monthly event, 'DROP' with the crew, while also performing at a variety of bookings regularly. With Ninjaskillz in CA he has co-produced club nights and underground events in and around the Los Angeles area, as well as outdoor events and parties all over Southern California and Mexico.
Currently he has focused his time and energy into a Progressive-Techno artist project, producing original tracks and remixes as 'SPON.10.80' with releases for labels such as Innerflight Music, Underground Music Records, and Cloudy Moon Records.
