Dead Sound (Perc Trax / Gynoid Audio)
In 2008, after long being inspired by the UKs longest running techno night Atomic Jam in Birmingham, Paul decided to make a change musically, moving into the world of techno under the name Dead Sound. Since starting out as Dead Sound, Paul has produced a variety of techno sub-genres including his own more broken beat and 4/4 styles by himself and also producing industrial techno alongside DJ partner Videohead. Dead Sounds debut EP, released through Datatrace, displayed an experimental mixture of IDM, bassline orientated techno and dubstep.After hearing Dead Sounds demos, Perc asked Dead Sound and his DJ partner Videohead to remix tracks for Go Hiyama and Samuli. Following the success of these remixes, The Chosen EP was released under Perc Trax. Following the hype of the Perc Trax releases, Acroplane requested some tracks from Dead Sound under the name Pench EP. Coinciding with the Perc Trax releases, Gynoid Audio and Elektrax Recordings showed an interest and Dead Sound has carried out various remixes for them and has EPs due out later in 2011/early 2012 . Alongside Perc and Surgeon, Paul has gained the support of other big players in the techno scene such as Dave Clarke, Richie Hawtin, James Ruskin, Xhin, Stormfield and Warlock and notably Bas Mooy with whom a collaboration project is in the pipeline.
Bas Mooy (Planet Rhythm, Roots, Patterns, Darknet)
Rotterdam home-based dj/producer Bas Mooy (1976) has been active on many fronts in the techno scene since 1999. Heavily influenced by a city that breaths industrial strength twenty-four-seven, he gradually found his way into creating an unique dark sound, which lead him to the forefront of the European techno scene. In 2002 he kickstarted the already legendary Audio Assault record label with label partner Jeroen Liebregts aka Radial, which resulted in the birth of sublabel Arms one year later. Since then the Audio Assault family built a strong and constantly growing fan-base worldwide, showcasing an impressive catalogue with a constant output of stand out twelve inches, setting the standard for today\'s quality dark techno. For many years he has been a member of the Rotterdam underground collective \'Strictly Techno\', creators of over a hundred legendary parties since 1996. Bas has played at many \'top of the bill\' clubs and festivals around the globe and is a regular guest at the highly respected Awakenings parties in Holland. Over the years Bas has been a hard working and devoted producer, spending many hours in the studio and putting out music on respected labels such as Planet Rhythm, Roots, Fine Audio Recordings, Darknet, Naked Lunch, Impact Mechanics, Submissions, Patterns, Blank Records and of course his own imprints Audio Assault and Arms.
