REFERENCE (Luke Hess & Brian Kage)
Planet-E / Beretta / Pokerflat / Cinematic
Reference consists of the Detroit-based artists Luke Hess & Brian Kage. The group was created for the expression of underground music and dance culture. Luke Hess is a name synonymous with a new wave of ‘Detroit techno’ producers, but his roots go deeper than that. His continued hard work as a musician and his talent as a DJ has allowed him to release music on some of the most respected labels and play some of the most prestigious clubs in the world. Brian Kage is the founder of the record label Beretta Music. Along with a countless number of successful releases, Brian’s experience as a producer, DJ, and label-head has helped shape and catapult the careers of some of today’s brightest and best artists in the dance music community.
Like any pure artistic or avant-garde entity, they have no concern for following trends. Hess & Kage have come together to create music in it’s truest form; experimentation, soul, sweat, live instrumentation, and organic sounds all welded together to form deep and timeless music. The main concern of Reference is to stand diligently behind the foundation of underground culture and against commercialism that longs to destroy the freedom of our senses.

Electric Deluxe Presents l November 3rd 2012 l Detroit
New Yorkbased South African, Brendon Moeller has been seriously producing since 1994. His compositions have been released on Francois K’s Deep Space Media; Third ear Records, Echocord, Mule Musiq, Eskimo recordings and then some. He records as Brendon Moeller, Beat Pharmacy and Echologist. Dub, techno, jazz, afrobeat and psychedelics are inspirations that appear in most of his music.
Whether it be serious dancefloor bizniz, or dubbed out downtempo, his music always possesses a quality and signature that make him the force he is today. He has collaborated with some of the great dub vocalists of our time, namely Mutabaruka, Spaceape, Mikey Dread and Paul St. Hilaire amongst others.
Jeff Derringer is a producer, performer, event promoter and educator based in Chicago. He is the resident and creative director of the Oktave project, which puts on events in both Chicago and New York.

Upstairs in the TV Bar Loft Interdimensional Transmissions presents Samhain XII
Join Interdimensional Transmissions 12th annual Samhain party, celebrating the final show of their No Way Back Tour 2012. Erika’s solo debut came earlier this year on a D Records compilation, and she has progressed so quickly that her solo 2xLP is due imminently on Interdimensional Transmissions. To commemorate that release, she is making her live solo debut at this party. And for that refined bitchy edge, we are bringing in NWB tour mate Mike Servito for a rare hometown performance. The TV Bar Loft will be transformed by Infinite Dimensions.

TOMMY FOUR SEVEN
British born, Berlin based DJ, producer and sound designer Tommy Four Seven, or known to some as
just T47, is at the front of the new generation of Techno artists, creating his trademark deep and uncom-
Learning to DJ from a young age, at 17, Tommy held a 2 year residency at Fire Club, London whilst
appearing at legendary venues such as Fabric, The End and Turnmills. Producing was also an early
interest and Tommy soon began releasing on David Duriez‘s, Brique Rouge and Kill Brique label, before
launching his own imprint called Shooting Elvis.
After studying Music Technology in London, Tommy moved to Berlin and has been steadily building his
catalogue of strong, moody and hypnotic tracks such as his 2009 hit, ‚Surma‘ on Speedy J’s Electric De-
luxe and more recently, ‚Sor‘ on CLR, not forgetting the before mysterious ‚Bauhaus‘ project with Chris
Liebing. Tommy’s approach to music is unlike a musician. Instead, he prefers to sound design, recording
and sculpting elements into deep engaging atmospheres.

Los Angeles born and bred, Vangelis and Vidal Vargas were raised in the ’80s on a steady diet of Latin freestyle, electro, and new wave that pervaded their urban environment. Their father also exposed them to cutting edge progressive acts Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, planting early seeds for aural exploration. By the mid ’90s they were sampling LA’s underground club scene and heavily researching electronic music’s roots. After years of influence they began to express their musical vision through their own recordings and performances. Vidal and Vangelis eventually found common ground with producer / performer Drumcell, and in 2002 they formed the Droid Behavior event production group and record label out of frustration with the city’s lack of knowledge, acceptance, and understanding for Midwest-bred techno and house music and their European counterparts.
As producers Vangelis and Vidal have released and licensed original music and remixes under various aliases (most notably Acid Circus and Raíz) on the Droid Recordings imprint as well as respected labels Historia y Violencia, Tora Tora Tora, DJMag, Music Man, Resident Advisor, Enemy Rec, Gynoid, Reloading, Micro.Fon and Timefog. Their music has been charted, played and supported by Speedy J, Chris Liebing, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, DVS1, Levon Vincent, Jonas Kopp, etc.
Their intense and inspiring performances have placed them alongside major players Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Derrick May, Dan Bell, Surgeon, Sandwell District, Robag, Paco Osuna, Pan Pot, Marco Carola, Detroit Grand Pubahs, and Berghain Residents at undergrounds, festivals, after hours, and club nights from North and South America to Berlin.
Raíz fully harness the capabilities of Traktor, Ableton, and Maschine technology to create a thick blend of Detroit influenced techno and gritty house. They take cues from years of classical training to infuse dynamic musical expression with a delicate balance of mixing board acrobatics and symbiotic intuition. Years of production experience inform their Live PA / Digital DJ hybrid approach, which uses each track’s core essentials to form a narrative arch for every unique set. Their releases follow suit, taking only key elements from each rhythmic style to shape simplistic and deep music that captures their diverse influences and personal impressions.
