The CONDUIT // 065 – Cyanwave

// Cyanwave //

In a recent conversation with a friend he mentioned that the West Coast had it’s own special techno sound, very dark and warehouse friendly. In some ways it reminded him of the free-for-all spirit of the legendary Midwest scene that informed his youth. We’ve been fortunate to present mixes from a whole crop of artists from out West flying that flag, the best, in our opinion, and we’ve gotten quite an education. Cyanwave offers a different look at the West Coast vibe on our 65th edition of The CONDUIT. The duo dives deeper and gets weirder, while still tapping to the essential elements of the artform – rhythm and melody. – Sean-Michael Yoder

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.

The CONDUIT // 053 – John Massey

Download

// John Massey //

Seattle producer John Massey just blew our mind with his recent Brutal Shores EP for the ultrahip techno imprint From 0-1. We love repping West Coast techno, it’s the sound of home and a chance to share something we love with the rest of the world. Here John explores his own records, those of friends, and also of other Seattle artists for a mix that feels very family oriented. Massey’s techno work is unparalleled but we also find ourselves engaged by his futuristic hip-hop collaborations with the immensely talented glitch hop producer DJ Zero One as well. Is there anything this guy can’t do? – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Brooklyn native John Massey has been attempting to damage eardrums for almost 14 years. A child of the 80s, John transplanted to Los Angeles as a teen. There he discovered an emerging underground dance scene and was infected with an interest in electronic music. John soon founded Sound Rehab Productions, connected with influential local promoters and artists such as Omar Ojeda (Darius Aleksander), Robin Porter, Drumcell, Ron-D-Core, Raiz (Acid Circus) and began coordinating techno events and working the dj circuit throughout the southern California area. Today John resides in Seattle.

In the years since John has stayed close to the underground, while making appearances at events such as Seattle’s Decibel Festival, SubSensory’s monthly STATIC in Portland, and frequent club and afterhour gigs around the Pacific Northwest. John is the kind of unassuming artists that earns respect rather than demands it; keeping his head down and focusing on his craft, trusting his instincts to keep the dancefloor moving. His current set consists of a live/dj hybrid that enables John to creatively blend a wide variety of techno, minimal and experimental sounds.

As a producer John tackles a variety of sounds ranging from his previous hip hop efforts under Dysposable Heroes, to his techno projects under his own name and previously as Indispenable Villains. He’s affiliated with Seattle’s From 0-1, a conceptual label which he represents in his various endeavors. He’s released on various labels such as HardSignal, Bleepsequence, From 0-1, Subsensory, Droid and his own Sound Rehab Recordings.  No matter the genre he has always enjoyed working with various artists giving him the opportunity to make new friends and take in new influences.
