The CONDUIT // 062 – Hermans


// Hermans //

The Toronto techno duo the Hermans has really taken off in the past year with releases on UK imprint Extended Play, NYC’s Subtrak and our very own 530Techno. Hermans’ members Max the Fax and Dick Diamonds have also been active as solo artists with work for Thoughtless Music, Zoo:Technique, and Runnin Wild with more releases on the way. They are also founders of the popular blog:, as well as Late & Deep Events, and even manage to find a little time to DJ. We are excited to bring these busy cats to the series with this exclusive mix!  – Sean-Michael Yoder

The CONDUIT // 027 – Wirik


// Wirik //

Emerging producer Wirik is a new voice worth reckoning with. He doesn’t make much dance floor music, preferring to skirt the edges with ballsy composition that do not fit neatly in to specific categories. The Canadian, by way of Mexico, offers a wide spectrum of ambient, downtempo, and experimental visions along with high quality dub techno and electro cuts with production partner Ivan Dbri that we find impossible to resist. Look for an upcoming release from that duo on our podcast partner, 530Techno‘s imprint.   – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Born in Mexico City. He began his studies as a musician and jazz guitar classified. His biggest influences has been Paco de Lucia, Victor Wooten and Ozric Tentacles. He is tired of working on projects with people who were not really committed and did not feel the same passion for this art , in the UK was where he really understood how it could combine the sound of guitar. In Canada , with a group of Mexican electronic musicians , had the opportunity to perfect this project in early 2010. He was also invited and decided to collaborate with this friend Ivan DBri and this duo project.
