Joel Mull / Young Male
◾️ JOEL MULL ◾️ Mull’s introduction to techno came when, as a 16-year-old, he made the pilgrimage to Manchester from Stockholm, UK’s storied Hacienda nightclub, propelled by his interested in that city’s early ‘90s indie dance scene. He was refused entry to the club for being underage and ended up in a basement with garbage bag-covered walls, lit by a stroboscope, fled with smoke, and techno blasting. This was Mull’s first encounter with the sound which led him to dance record shops, techno parties, and the rave scene, where he immersed himself in the sound.
◾️ YOUNG MALE ◾️ White Material co-founder Young Male is deeply embedded in New York’s underground. His brand of no-nonsense, stripped-down techno quickly captured the ears of dancers domestic and international.
