In his lecture at the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy, he talked about the experience of growing up on a small island,...

Henrik Schwarz is a long time veteran of the German deep house scene, having cut his teeth as a DJ in the ’90s, but it’s been his forays into production that have really set dancefloors alight; his extended, epic approach bringing a jazzy ambience to the 4/4 groove. In addition to running his Sunday Music label, he’s remixed everyone from The Sunburst Band to DJ Hell and Kuniyuki, and recently rolled with Dixon and Âme as part of the Innervisions Orchestra, and collaborating on their mix...

While Herb masters across all styles of music, his trademark touches have defined the sound of disco, house, R&B and hip-hop since the late ’70s. Aside from the music, and...

Ferenc van der Sluijs’s musical journey has moved from gaudy Italo disco to the hardcore acid squat scene and back again. But, for the man behind 1997’s inescapable “Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass,” this trajectory has been entirely natural. Hailing from The Hague, he was a member of early Dutch techno crew Unit Moebius and his Space Invaders-referencing hit pointed the way to electroclash. In the early 2000s he released on Ghostly International and set up the Cybernet Broadcasting...

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...

James Holden may be quiet and unassuming, but his music is as dirty as it comes. The Border Community head honcho went from being trance wunderkind to single-minded purveyor of mussed-up techno, with his second album, The Inheritors, released to high praise in 2013. In his lecture at the 2010 Red Bull Music Academy in London, Holden talks about wiring things up the wrong way, telling A&R men where to go and why you can mix anything, as long as it’s in the right key. TOPICS: 0:53 -...
