Tatem, a Detroit native currently living in San Diego is a DJ/producer who is best known for dark moody techno. Origin stories all begin with a piece of gear and back in 1997 it was a Boss DR660. The initial intent to replace an ever absent drummer for his band but soon there after began a focus in electronic music production. Around 2001- 2003 he joined the Detroit techno group SCAN 7 as a remixer and live performance member. The ethos of the Detroit music scene was a powerful influence. Production skills catapulted by mentoring with “old school” and master beat makers from Detroit including a brief time spent as a tech assistant to hometown techno hero, Kevin Saunderson. This opened doors for regular late night after-hours gigs and other larger events in town. In 2004, Tatem moved into the well known Russell Industrial center opening Binary Detroit, a 2000 sq ft production and recording studio eventually turned after-hours spot for Saturday Sunday’s. After moving to California and an eight year hiatus he found himself back at his roots producing techno. His Detroit connections found him shortly there after and since been releasing tracks on both Sub÷Divizion and Label.
