The CONDUIT // 057 – LilRoj


// LilRoj //

We return to Portland and to the home of all things big room techno – SubSensory, a label we very much like here at The CONDUIT. We were also completely blown away by the mix that SubSensory artist LilRoj submitted for the 530Techno podcast and finally got around to making that connection and getting a killer all techno, no filler mix for our own series. This is what weekend music is all about, LilRoj has a fantastic understanding of how to make the party go boom and exactly what gets us excited about techno music.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Southern raised, Northwest-based DJ and producer Roger Veillon, known as LilRoj to some, is at the front of the new generation of techno, crafting his trademark with funky deep and uncompromising sounds. Learning to beatmatch in the early 90’s, by the time Roj reached the age of 18, he had already developed his own profound blend of progressive techno and breakbeats and began making appearances in some of Louisiana’s top nightclubs and bars. Music production came natural as he began to gain studio access and resources in 2002. By 2008, he gained momentum with his debut remix of JAK’s “Relax,” on SubSensory Recordings, and is now a key producer and remixer for the label. These days, Roger’s sounds in the studio and on the decks are considered to be deep and engaging, characterized by funky atmospheres with plenty of low end emissions, and slightly more free-spirited and experimental than most common house and techno. In addition to a variety of remixes, Roger has since released three well-received original EPs on SubSensory as well as tracks and remixes on labels including Special Recordings and 530Techno.

FM stands for Freak Magnet and this is the latest project from Santiago Rodriguez & Jorge Garcia. These two Mexican techno renegades hold the underground flag real high – Sixties psychedelic, funked up downtempo, indie dance with a techno edge, and a housey groove all over it.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

The CONDUIT // 055 – ill76


// ill76 //

ill76 brings his tough Texas techno sound for the 55th installment of our series. He’s been around for as long as anyone can remember and even worked with Maetrik as a production partner at one point in his lengthy career. Here he rips through a crate of old and new vinyl for a warm, rich mix that is comprised of many moods. This mix also represents the best our series has to offer – a nuanced journey through new and old sounds presented with both enthusiasm and clinical precision – and we’re quite pleased to present it.  – Sean-Michael Yoder
