"The Anna Wintour of Music" - Benji B started his climb to success earlier than most of his peers in the industry. His first step was landing a job with legendary radio DJ Gilles Peterson on Kiss FM at just 16. From there it wasn’t long until he had his own show on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Today Benji holds down a weekly slot on Radio 1 using the platform to introduce listeners to underground electronic music from around the world.
On stage de Witte charms techno heads with her natural ease, composure and expertise. Making it almost look easy to play the biggest stages in the world. Her own studio productions have proven to be intense, addictive and downright impressive, captivating sounding labels like Novamute and Mary Go Wild. The future looks bright for Charlotte de Witte.
Here’s a little history lesson for those under the age of 20: During the 2000s, Ed Banger Records, helmed by the diligent and aptly named Busy P, were lighting up dance floors across the world with their neon-tinted, funk-filled, distorted take on the proud, French, electronic music tradition through acts like Justice, Mr. Oizo and DJ Mehdi.
Richie Hawtin is a genuine original. His critical acclaim spans the creative realm of the fine art community to the technological vanguard. Meanwhile, as a performing artist, he is constantly pushing conceptual frontiers, moving things forward, welcoming as many as he can to ideas and experiences that would have seemed pure science fiction when he began his career.
When Simon Green first burst onto the scene in 2000 with the ‘Animal Magic’ LP it was a time when words like ‘downtempo’ were frequently thrown about by music journalists and experimental turntablism and crate-dug samples were all the rage among producers. While Bonobo’s immediately recognizable sound has always been indebted to these traditions it has also matured over time into favouring the organic unpredictability of live instrumentation over the post-modern collage of sampling.
Marcel Dettmann AKA the king of Berghain states that techno for him is a ‘grundgefühl’ - which can be roughly translated to ‘a fundamental feeling.’ In light of the fact that he produces DJs and promotes only the most exquisite and progressive forms of electronic music on the planet this makes quite a lot of sense. We suspect that this fundamental feeling plays a significant part in the knowing effortlessness with which he carries his trade.
