Luis Flores [Clr / Blank Code / Droid] 1st March 2015
Tørk 15 February
Drumcell [CLR] & Tørk [Amazone, Insert]
Drumcell is the founder of Droid Recordings and co-founder of Droid Behavior along with the Vargas brothers of techno duo Acid Circus. Since the mid Nineties Drumcell has been a firm believer in the power of techno and over the past decade become one of Southern California’s greatest champions.
As a graduate of the Musician’s Institute, a veteran performer at parties, and longtime recording engineer Drumcell harnesses a strong musical background with a gifted sense of technological intuition. The delicate balance keeps him pushing the limits of his gear continually as a way to develop his artistic express. Forming the Droid Behavior collective with Acid Circus earlier this decade was another other major step in this ongoing development. In turn, the collective has helped expose other local artists as well as established DJs to the growing legion of techno fans in the Los Angeles basin. In the past five years, he’s played alongside nearly every major DJ in the genre via the trio’s signature Interface parties. This year he also did a mini-tour of the US which culminated in him playing the main stage at the prestigious Movement festival in Detroit.
Drumcell ‘s constant push into the bleeding edges of music technology has earned him the title of product specialist for Native Instruments. He is out there pushing the limits of what current technology has to offer- developing homebrew software as well as cutting edge hardware solutions to bring a fresh, innovative taste to his production and performances. Innovations that blur the lines between live performance and a traditional DJ set up creating “a thick blend of acidic techno and aggressive but funky minimalist groove”. Drumcell is one of the few artists exploiting the full power of software like Traktor and Ableton run through state-of-the-art Allen & Heath mixer technology. In conjunction, the trinity is used to create a hybrid of flexibility and fidelity for the ultimate in electronic music performance. Drumcell uses this platform to highlight his own needles-in-the-red brand of aggressive, discordant techno. In fact, this summer’s Droid Recordings release “Cell Injection”, with longtime production partner Audio Injection, crystallized this amped up testosterone booster meets Quaalude jack and funk perfectly. In turn, the release captured the attention of many of the world’s top techno jocks in the process – including Speedy J and Richie Hawtin. It’s a sound born of musical menace and the kinds of wickedness that only the poisoned airs of LA can conjure.
Recently, Drumcell has also had a string of additional successes including remixes of techno legend Chris Leibing on Leibing’s own CLR label as well as the seventh anniversary of the now legendary Interface parties These gatherings have brought the best of the old school warehouse vibe together with intense new school multimedia presentations that defy explanation. He is currently developing a audio/visual performance to be unveiled by the end of this year in hopes of elevating his performances at these events to the next level. Drumcell will definitely be one artist worth watching in 2010.

Reeko [Polegroup] 18th January 2015
REEKO [Polegroup, Mental Disorder] - Menn [Insert]
Coinciding with the one hundredth anniversary of one of the most surprising works by contemporary icon Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis (1915), Reeko celebrates the novella or adult fairy tale with his own reinterpretation of Kafka’s controversial narration. The author offers a first person account of the protagonist Gregor Samsa’s transmutation; a human just like any other, with a grey, predictable and routine existence.
However, this bland existence comes to an end when Gregor undergoes a catharsis, a metamorphosis that transforms him into an insect. A mutation that Reeko describes beat by beat, giving us Samsa’s every single heart beat and shudder. We bear witness to his dehumanisation, we feel every trace of humanity dissolve in the cold blood of the new being that is coming to life: an insect man, a new circumstance that will affect the way he sees the reality he thought he knew and the world that seemed to him rigid and unchangeable.
Juan Rico has already demonstrated his capacity for description. With the use of his trademark dark sound —both digital and analogue, since he has mastered both worlds— his sublime double LP Finding the New Matter (Mental Disorder, 2011) took us to new and exciting places, establishing him as a reputed artist within the international electronic music scene.
The first chapter-track is “La Metamorfosis”, which provides the title for the record and is the only track with a name. From here on, there will be no more labels; the dimension we find ourselves in bears no description.
A1, “La Metamorfosis” acts as a prologue, a prelude which describes the whole record. It is not one of four tracks, but the opening that allows for the rest of the story to unfold. Over the course of six minutes, this first track progressively penetrates an atmosphere which becomes increasingly clear and intelligible for us humans, and at the same time separates us, cell by cell, from our own species.
