NOAH PRED DJ/Live set
Producing and performing live for over ten years, Noah Pred emerged from the Canadian underground as a sought-after techno DJ with a sophisticated sound and unique style. Devoted to authentic and soulful strains of techno in all its permutations, Noah's sound continues to evolve while remaining firmly driven by the dance floor.Since his first records were released, his productions have received international support, garnering critical acclaim while moving bodies across the globe. As a DJ and live act, he's toured throughout Europe and North America, performing alongside such diverse artists as Josh Wink, Mathew Jonson, and James Holden. After a three-year stint in Montreal working for Consigned Recordings while holding a residency at Stereobar, Noah relocated to the West Coast to produce his field recording based techno full-length, 'Ecocosm', which was initially released on New Kanada.
Exploring his compositional versatility, Pred launched the Shen project in 2004. Geared towards digital downtempo, electronic dub and emotive IDM, Shen provided a creative outlet for productions that roam beyond the borders of clubland. Noah's debut Shen full-length, 'Outlines', was released on Native State Records in late 2006. With Shen currently on indefinite hiatus, Noah recently launched Solvoid - a new project geared towards his unique take on future bass music.Based in Toronto since 2007, Pred has developed a loyal and devoted following for his potent DJ sets while running the digital imprint Thoughtless Music from his studio headquarters. Following his recent full-length on Thoughtless and performances at the MUTEK and Decibel festivals, Noah's poised for exciting things in the year ahead - with his debut mix-CD for Thoughtless, ERA ONE, and his new EP for Cynosure, Lesser Lights, gathering rave reviews and widespread support.
Growing up in a town outside of Windsor, Ontario with a miniscule population and an even smaller understanding of electronic music, Matt’s discovery of a sound that was “more appealing and expressive” began to take shape as he approached his late teens. By the time he reached 20, he sought out the tools and skills needed to become an electronic artist, instead of watching from the crowd. Consequently, purchasing turntables and learning to “DJ” didn’t quench his thirst for knowledge; he needed to know exactly how the music was made. Thus, Matt’s true development began as he discovered the technology behind EDM (electronic dance music) and started formulating his own collaborations with his music gear and his newfound love for production. While adding original elements that he had created himself to the music he was DJing, Matt found his calling and shortly thereafter began producing his own tracks. Ultimately, his focus on actually “creating” the music instead of simply “playing” it profoundly shaped the onset of the young artists’ career.
Over the next year, Matt constantly kept up-to-date on the latest technology and various ways to differentiate himself and incorporate more of a “live” aspect into his sets. Using his laptop and controllers, Matt is one of the rare artists that is cognizant of the need to push his sound further. Recently he has performed with John Acquaviva, Richie Hawtin, Gaiser, Ambivalent, Oliver Huntemann, Dubfire, Oliver Giacomotto, Paul Ritch, MSTRKRFT and Anthony Attalla.
Annie Hall is one of the classics on the Spanish electronic music scene. Her style as a dj oscillates between idm, electro and techno, combined with dance floor appeal. Her style has landed her gigs long side artists such as Laurent Garnier, Model 500, Dynarec, Rude 66, Legowelt and many more around Europe.
Detroit Underground, Ghostly, BPitch
With over 20 releases on some of electronic music’s most celebrated and innovative labels such as Bpitch, Ghostly International and Shitkatapult -- most recently Touchin' Bass and his own critically acclaimed Detroit Underground Records, as well as Kerohand Records with K-Hand., Kero (Sohail Azad) has established himself as a leader within the growing pack of producers successfully infiltrating contemporary art circles worldwide. Lately he has shared the stage with notables such as Speedy J, Ken Ishii and Funkstorung, opening up for new producers like Flying Lotus and bringing high-tech graphic visuals to venues across North America for the Butthole Surfers on there 2010 tour.
One of the emerging bright lights of Los Angeles club scene, Dahlia Lachs aka Modesty has begun to earn a reputation far beyond that which her moniker would allow.
Skillfully blending deep grooves with strong rhythms and a multitude of breaks, stutters, and effects, Modesty delivers sets that reflect kindly on her early Latin and disco influences but consistently finds ways to interpret, re-invent or advance these sounds in new directions with often surprising and unexpected results.
Since walking away from a career in fashion to pursue her musical interests, Lachs has continued to prove over and over again, her acumen and skill behind the decks performing regularly at underground events in Los Angeles, New York and Denver and earning coveted opening slots for internationally recognized producers such as Alex Under, Miss Fitz, Mikael Stavostrand, Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtiss, to name but a few. She has also delivered sets at events by internationally respected promotional outfits such as Droid Behaviour, Resolute NY and Detroit Underground, performing at the latter's annual after party during Movement: Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
Modesty continues to hone her craft as a DJ performing as often as possible both at home and with an eye toward gigs abroad, and while admittedly dabbling in some production, unlike many other DJ/Producers she continues to explore the possibilities involved in what some might call a lost art, that of mixing records, pure and simple.
See you on the dance floor!
