Early years

In his early years, being inspired by underground techno, he released a series of vinyl records under various pseudonyms (only one using his real name). He performed live acid techno sets at underground parties such as Acid Rain at Amsterdam Graansilo. During the recording sessions for one of the tracks he produced for ex Soul II Soul and The Shamen singer Victoria Wilson James’s album on Sony Music, it was suggested that he audition for the “De Bende van Venlo” a theatre piece based on a true crime story. He was cast in one of the lead roles and performed over thirty European shows.

Los Angeles

After the theatre experience, Universal / Island Records won the label-bidding and signed him as an artist and producer. He released one single and one video before he left the label due to creative differences and moved from London to Los Angeles to work on his art, film, photography and editing career. He took a break from that to release the track LA Mellow (as D’ray), a collaboration with Dutch Dj, producer Gregor Salto. Ultimate Miami 2, the album with LA Mellow and music by artists like Wiwek, Chocolate Puma and Sidney Samson reached #6 at Beatport’s House top 100.[10] In late 2015, he finished working as the visual supervisor of a documentary about Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky based on his diaries Time within Time, starring Tonino Guerra. In 2016, he released two EPs (as 0010×0010 and T3TSUO 303) on his Generation Acid label which both landed in the Beatport Techno Top 100 charts.

DJ Focus: VK

VK

VK

Vk was inspired to mix by the huge number of pirate radio stations in the 90’s, moving through various genres until one choice night in Clapham led to an obsession with acid techno. In Brighton she represented Teknophobia Soundsystem and Brighton Alliance of Soundsystems until the mid 00’s, taking a long break and then coming back with a set in Malaga for Astral Tech in 2010. In the following years she played for KRMA in France and up and down the UK for Dead Dog Disko London, Tektronix Northampton, Bangface London, Rigormortis Nottingham, Sicknote Brighton, Tekno Value Norwich and many other fine purveyors of banging noises! Returning from another break in 2015 after playing on the Off the Rails Stage at Illusive Festival Vk’s house has been filling up with vinyl again and in 2016 she played at Techno will be Techno Bristol, Techno Value Norwich and a guest slot on the Wired Radio Show.

DJ Focus: Sted Hellvis

Sted Hellvis

Sted Hellvis

Sted Hellvis – cut his teeth playing old school hip hop when it was still new school, then the rave scene swallowed him up and spat him out in the underground, where he discovered just how dirty techno could get. Throw in a heavy dose of 303 along the way and he’s stomped and spun in warehouses, forests, squats and free parties, and selected clubs when he’s on his best behaviour!

Known for causing havoc as part of Momentum, Project Zero & Filth Factory, now a major player in the Welsh Connektion crew and regularly causing chaos on the wAliens free party rig!

Vinyl’s his vice, with the third deck often spinning. Keeping it hard, his sound is the harder edged squat and acid techno.

He runs his own label Polymeric Records, and he has recently started to work as Label Manager for Molecular Recordings, owned by Marco Lenzi. He is also doing A & R work for Techno Sessions label, owned by Ludgero Costa, and he worked for 6 years as Label Manager for Austrian label Carbon Audio, which he started in collaboration with Rene Reiter. He recently quit this position to concentrate on the work for Molecular Recordings. All of these labels are available on vinyl, as MAXX is still making a point of supporting the media. As a matter of fatcs, he is still playing vinyl only.
Not many people know that in 1996 MAXX produced and engineered a vinyl release for a project called SKY BOY on Italian label DROHM, part of big independent Flying Records, label where also huge names like Moby, Snap, Reel To Real and Todd Terry released their music. The record was a commercial success, selling in the thousands of copies, but it was not what MAXX wanted to do musically, so he went back to start it all over again few years later producing Techno.
After moving to London from Italy, where he was born, MAXX has released over 100 tracks in just over 8 years, including vinyl releases on Polymeric, Cluster, Carbon Audio, Teknic, Guild, Generator UK, Killawatts, Open Source, Techno Sessions, Interstate One, and Reborn UK, collaborating along the way with many great artists like Chris Liberator (Cluster), Sterling Moss (Cluster and Carbon Audio), Pounding Grooves (Polymeric), 3Phazegenerator (too many to mention), Hard Bart (Polymeric), Pino Lopez and Rene Reiter (Carbon Audio), Xerofill (Astral Tech) and numerous remixes for various well known artists on labels such as Martyn Hare’s Tremors Recordings (for Ian Void), Phantom Records, Tekx Records, Generator UK, Meld…
MAXX productions are played by many great DJs around the World, most noticeably by superstar DJ Richie Hawtin, who has been playing his ‘No Need For Needle’ (Carmarage Records, made in collaboration with 3Phazegenerator) extensively at parties in Amnesia (Ibiza), Cocorico’ (Riccione, Italy), Minus Showcase (Poznan, Poland), and Berlin Beach Break.
He is currently very busy working on new releases, for both vinyl and digital labels, with 2014 looking to be the best yet for his output, having already around 8 vinyl releases out, or about to be released on Polymeric, Teknic, Interstate One, Trust In Records, Interstate Colour, ADSR, and Killawatts, plus numerous digital releases on labels like Blackout Audio, Sub Cult, Dolma Records, Naughty Pills, Viral Outbreak, Aktivists, and Below Ground.
