What’s more, Oberheim has lost none of the enthusiasm that led him to the industry in the...

If anyone embodies the spirit and eclecticism of Ann Arbor’s Ghostly International and Spectral Sound labels, it’s Tadd Mullinix. Since first taking to music in his teens, the Michigan-native has developed a chameleon-like ability to shift between genres and styles while maintaining an understanding of what makes people react and move: hip-hop as Dabrye, house and techno as JTC, experimental electronic under his birth name, EBM as Charles Manier and all-out ragga jungle as SK-1 alongside...

First appearing within British dance music in the early 2000s, Sinden soon made a name as part of a new breed of young producers unafraid to reshape and redefine UK club sounds by voraciously borrowing from the past and present. Raised on a standard diet of hip-hop and electronic music, Sinden cut his teeth with some help from Dave Taylor before setting up a collaboration with Herve, The Count & Sinden, that brought them to the attention of Domino Records and a 2010 debut album. Since then...

From the ’50s to the ’70s he worked with many popular Ethiopian artists as a musician and arranger,...

IG Culture has been a leading figure in the UK’s underground since 1990, when Dodge City Productions’ “accidental” deal with Island Records catapulted him into the spotlight. Following those early forays IG established himself as one of London’s most reliable producers, a man with an ear for classic sounds that is equally comfortable twisting up new styles, producing for the likes of Monday Michiru and Roots Manuva. In the early 2000s, he became part of London’s short-lived but...

Despite blazing a trail with his early work and establishing himself in a competitive UK scene from the other side of the world, he encountered some unfortunate contractual...

Hamburg may not be the most famous techno city in Germany, but it was the birthplace for Dial Records, which continues to delight devotees of the less-is-more school of electronica. Efdemin is a crucial component of the label’s nucleus, whose involvement eventually led him to move to Berlin. In this lecture at the 2007 Red Bull Music Academy Efdemin explained how he first got involved in making music, how his first track bridged the old to the new and why despite Berlin being so “ugly” he...
