(Metroplex / Tresor)
Native-Detroiter Terrence Dixon‘s longtime alliance with Godfather of Techno Juan Atkins has helped forge his own powerful sound in the world of minimal Techno. Dixon produced the two notable appearances as Population 1 on Metroplex and as Terrence Dixon on the majority of the Utensil label releases. Since his first "Live in Detroit" release in 1994 on Utensil, Dixon‘s presence has become well-established in the global Underground for having produced some of the deepest atmosphere in the genre. Significant outings in 1999 with Southern Germany‘s Background Records denote Dixon‘s broadening international horizons fanbase-wise, most recently including his production involvement in Juan Atkins‘ "Skynet" album from 1998 (Tresor 105).
In 2000, Terrence Dixon‘s exclusive album debut on Tresor entitled "From the Far Future" (March 2000) signaled the beginning of a strong new relationship between artist and label. Essentially variations of a concept, "From the Far Future" is delightfully warm with dreamlike excursions through Techno and House-based structures. Says Dixon himself, "'From The Far Future' is all about respecting those who came before me, respecting the art of pure Techno, taking bits and pieces of what's old and making it new once again." Past, Present and Future are interwoven within eleven-tracks, all compositionally unified but each able to stand alone when heard individually.
The 50-minute journey of "From the Far Future" is deep, smooth and organic; specifically designed to be flexible; understood in club settings and at home. Alternating rhythms throb to the forefront while floated in echoey synthesizer washes. Subtle traces of some of most ingenious profiles in the history of Electronic Music are hinted at, including Kraftwerk, Derrick May and Juan Atkins, bathing the listener in sensual nostalgia. Sublime. Look for the album‘s track „Running Time“ on Tresor Compilation Vol. 8 (Tresor.150).
(Storm Rave / XL Recordings / Trax Records)
"When Frankie Mitchell was a teenager in 1980s New York, it was all about writing graffiti, breakdancing and DJing. He threw his weight behind DJing and production and ended up becoming one of the city's dance music legends. Inspired by the rough-and-ready production style of hip-hop, the man best known as Frankie Bones released dance tunes that meshed perfectly with the nascent rave scene in the UK. That's where Bones ended up making his name before famously bringing the culture back with him to Brooklyn. Storm Rave, the series of events he hosted throughout the outer boroughs in the early '90s, merged the euphoria he witnessed abroad with the grit of pre-Giuliani New York. They didn't run for long, but they're infamous, and we were keen to hear the story told as only Bones himself can tell it. Jordan Rothlein caught it firsthand from Bones at Butcha Sound in New York last month. https://soundcloud.com/ra-exchange/ra-exchange-272" - Resident Advisor

Born in Brooklyn and raised Queens DJ, producer and label owner Joeski has been rocking the house scene since the early 90s. Joeski began his career in the historic NYC club scene where his sound moved the crowd at venues such as Limelight, Tunnel, Palladium and NASA. As a producer Joeski needs no introduction, with hit release on labels such as Defected, Desolat, Poker Flat, Kling Klong and Suara it is safe to say that any proper house DJ has a Joeski track in his set. In the 2000 Joeski started his own label called Maya Records and the idea behind the label was find a home where his friends could express their musical talents as producers.
(The Bunker / Ghostly Alum.)
Mike Servito is from a very special yet temporary and partially lost fertile crescent of techno / house / party DJing. It was a time when raves were still a fresh idea, almost felt like a revolution, and DJs like Claude Young, D Wynn, Derrick Carter and Mike Huckaby were informing an upcoming generation. If you look directly to that inspired generation you will find the lost threads of Detroit Techno, House and beyond, you will find a group of DJs with insanely deep mixing skills, the ability to rock almost any kind of party with an improvisational approach that is so skilled it makes everything seem so well thought out that even they don't know where their set will go. But, it will take you there! In the future, this special generation of deep midwest mixers will be remembered and revered as the wizards they are, long after the trendy players have lost their luster.
Detroit never forgot about Mike Servito, his upfront dirty deep and bitchy taste has had an impact on Detroit nightlife for over a decade. From debuting in 1995 at Dat's Poorboy parties, to being a resident at blackbx and Ghostly's Untitled (along with Derek Plaslaiko, Tadd Mullinix, Matthew Dear, and Ryan Elliott), contributing to the bizarrely popular, wild and free Dorkwave, and progressing that concept into Sass (the hippest queer party in Detroit at the time), to blowing minds at Interdimensional Transmissions' No Way Back parties, Servito has made his impression. Moving to Brooklyn, Detroit's loss has been their gain, as he has found a proper home with a residency at The Bunker, and representation by Beyond Booking in North America and Odd Fantastic in Europe.
A consummate DJ since the mid-90s, over the intervening 20 years Kimyon Huggins has risen again to renewed notice for his dedication in the area that set him on his journey. Originating in Ohio as the raves were starting to spread across the Midwest from their beginnings in Detroit and Chicago,, Kimyon wasted no time in becoming involved in the burgeoning movement both as a DJ and as a promoter, starting in 1995 bringing in names like Derrick Carter, Suburban Knight and Rob Hood for early appearances. By 1999 he had moved to New York and started afresh, beginning with his Trü Skül events and moving into Pockit Rockit as both resident and curator. The list of names, many of them legends already and many more to become future legends, is formidable: debuts for Theo Parrish, Herbert and others; noted appearances from Robert Hood, Suburban Knight, Dan Bell, Jay Denham, Ken Ishii, and New York talent such as Joey Beltram and Function.
By 2006, Kimyon made the decision to concentrate on his production and visual arts careers, both previously sidelined by the grind of weekly parties. You can’t keep a lifer out of the game for long though, and by 2007 he was again working with Juan Atkins, releasing a co-production in 2009 on New York’s All About Music, followed by a solo release on Todd Terry’s In House in 2010. In 2011, he helped re-launch Atkins’ legendary Metroplex label, first as a recording artist and then as label manager, a title he holds to this day; the renewed activity has yielded strong releases from Terrence Dixon as Population One, James Johnson as Plural, Atkins and Marc Ernestus as Audio Tech which Kimyon engineered and arranged, Model 500, and his own solo release. 2015 saw Kimyon DJing Detroit’s Movement festival as part of an all-star lineup for the Metroplex 30th Anniversary Showcase.
With two decades honing his approach, Kimyon Huggins’ resume stretches from the rough beginnings of techno to the present day nearly unbroken. His is a rare combination of perspective, talent, and passion, and as he moves into his brightening future, his experience holds both a thorough vision of the past and the keys to the future.
(Intimate Project Music)
Intimate Project is the outcome of a journey of two guys who, being from the same city, met years later in a different country and who have ended up sharing a common passion, music. Andres Acevedo and A-Kintero met in NYC while both independently pursued their music careers as dj’s in search of making their imprint in the city’s electronic music scene. For the past 3 years, they have joined forces in producing music and have together transitioned to their new name “intimate Project”. This new facet of their musical career reflects a more polished and refined production, a natural development of their commitment to experiment with sound.
