ABOUT THE ARTISTS.
Tim Xavier’s passion for music has kept him on the forefront of techno since his innovative releases on Blueline a decade ago. His career began in Houston in the 90s, and then on to Chicago, Brooklyn and now Berlin, where he has resided since 2007. He is a veteran to the industry; and his dark, edgy production style has remained uncompromised through the ever changing genres of minimal, techno, house and beyond. He is also the owner and chief engineer at Manmade Mastering in Berlin; and this sleepy-eyed coffee addict defines cool as he cuts master plates for many respected record labels.
Tim’s music has been charted and played by leading artists around the world, and he has worked with many labels such as Cocoon, Minus, Sci-Tec, Podium, Timefog, Little Helpers, Sleaze, Droid Behavior and many more. He is also the owner of his own imprint, LTD400, which encompasses his irresistible combination of quirk, funk, space and drive. Tim spray-paints his signature icon on 400 sleeves of each release, a process that he says connects him more closely to his music and audience. He also works with partner Camea on her imprint Clink Recordings, with Tony Rohr as the ‘Afternoon Coffee Boys’, and long time studio friend Par Grindvik. In 2010 Tim is releasing is first full length work on Clink, titled ‘Viperfish’, with a CD mix project to follow.
On Stage, Tim’s current performances include a mixture of DJing, Live and Effects manipulation, carrying out his vision on two laptops and several midi controllers. He creates an unforgettable experience with his maximal sound quality and music selection, in which he combines loops and pieces from his own production. He is regularly on tour and performing across the globe, capturing his audiences with groovy, driving dance music. Tim’s relentless devotion to providing cutting edge audio continues to keep him on the forefront of innovative dance music, and as he continues to grow it is apparent that we have still yet to see the best of his work.
Toronto based Jamie Kidd is a multi-instrumentalist turned electronic producer and dj. His obsessions with rhythm and skills as a musician inspire him to take the spirit of live music and improvisation into every performance.
As a funk, jazz and rock bassist, Jamie has recorded and toured with numerous live groups throughout Canada and the US. Since 2005, Jamie has produced several singles and remixes for labels including Toronto’s Thoughtless Music, California based Monism, and Halifax’s Stratagem. In 2006, Kidd joined Frederik Hatsav to form Metalogic. Their collaborations have accumulated in edgy, dynamic and highly rhythmic electronic music, releasing for such labels as New York’s Addon, Brooklyn’s Hidden Agenda, London’s Perc Trax, and Berlin’s Nachtstrom Schallplatten. The duo’s ‘Boxed and Warped’, ‘Surge Stimulator’, and ‘Cabin Pressure’ EP’s were fiercely supported by artists such as Perc, Extrawelt, Cari Lekebusch, Tony Rohr, Len Faki, Phil Kieran, Alex Bau, Xpansul, Nick Warren, Frankie Bones, and John Selway.
In one of the most vibrant underground scenes in North America, Jamie has quickly distinguished himself among the city’s finest techno, tech.house, and minimal dj’s. Since its inception, he has been the resident dj for Toronto techno titans Platform, performing alongside some of the world’s most respected artists including Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Speedy J, Trentemoller, Adam Beyer, Radio Slave, Matthew Dear, Paul Ritch, James Holden, Timo Maas, Seth Troxler and many more.
A fetish for bass heavy, pulsating sub textures, dubbed-out effects, and long teasing blends, Jamie Kidd hijacks your mind on an impulsive journey in and out of deep unauthorized darkness, and manic but pleasurable innocence.
Toronto Canada’s Arthur Oskan is known for his powerfully resonating dance floor releases.
Representing his stylistic range, Oskan’s productions have been released on a variety of labels including Beretta Music, Restructured, Secret Weapon, Cratesavers, and Matrix Records. Under his Myers Briggs guise, he’s recorded for such labels as Beretta Grey, Thoughtless Music, and Noah Pred’s Sentient Sound who subsequently released his widely successful track “Forever.”
Not surprisingly, several of the world’s top dj’s and producers – Funk D’Void, Los Hermanos, Chymera, James Holden, Nic Fanciulli, Hernan Cattaneo, and Fabrice Lig, have given top praise for his past and current releases.
As one of Toronto’s leading live acts, Oskan has performed alongside such international artists including Omar S, Troy Pierce, Heartthrob, Alex Under and Someone Else.
He continues to perform live and produce music for several labels in 2010, and is now working with Fabric London’s publishing arm to further grow his international exposure.
Martin Fazekas has been a regular feature in the Toronto electronic dance community for over five years. As one third, and resident DJ, of Toronto’s highly regarded breakandenter party crew, Fazekas has consistently raised his profile performing at numerous local events and festivals including OM and Harvest, and alongside some of the world’s most respected DJs and producers such as Daniel Bell, Heartthrob, Sammy Dee, Jeff Mills, Dinky, Holger Zilske, and Pawel just to name a few. His sets combine the finer elements of techno and house, often leading toward the darker and/or deeper edges of both genres.
Waseem Dabdoub, or simply Waseem is a new presence in Toronto’s music community. Though born and raised in the Canadian techno capital of Windsor, Ontario, Dabdoub’s sound takes its inspirational cues from 70′s disco, 80′s pop and the contemporary house and r&b revivals of artists such as Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap and Visionquest. His smooth beats, tinged with hints at minimal techno’s trippier elements, are deeply infectious whether at the party or Teddy Pendergrassin’ it up in the bedroom.
Join breakandenter as we present the world premiere of … Waseem!
