22tape

22tape's music has just enough experimentalism to have you scratching your chin while chumming around at that art gallery. Yet head-nodding enough to crash that same gallery with some back-spins and blunts. He's married to the the abstract while banging the neighbor, Mrs. Boom Bap. Yes, that was a "Mrs." 22tape says "it's more exciting that way." And his favorite form of protection is Renoise.

Hitori Tori

In 1998 Julian La Brooy’s four track recorder was tragically destroyed. A sound tracker completely changed everything and Hitori Tori was born. Agitated breaks became combined with tweaked arpeggiated synth lines, some cut up vocals, and a few lugubrious tones thrown into the background for good measure.

Early releases included tracks as part of the electronic duo Finch on the Sugarmonk/Interchill Om Complilation in 1999. Fasp, another musical incarnation, released an album on the net label NISHI in 2002. Contributing a track to Balanced Records’ Northern Faction 4 compilation, Hitori Tori continued with his meticulously detailed productions.

The Dutch brothers Van der Schilden and Peter Spaargaren have been exploring musical emotions with deep, atmospheric layers since 2006, forming the electronic act 'Easily Embarrassed'. Combining various styles and flavors, from electro to ambient and from dub to psychedelic, they blend retro synthesizing with today's sound design.

Hailing from the EE Studio in Aalsmeer, Holland, they've already earned their marks releasing 2 free EP's "From Sunset Last Night to Sunrise This Morning" and "Darkened Emotion". Easily Embarrassed moved on from there, leaving the demo scene behind when they released their debut album "Idyllic Life" on Cardamar Music.

Danny Barnes

My name’s Danny Barnes. I been playing for 42 years practicing and working on music. I do about 150 shows a year on the road with a laptop, a banjo, and sound mangling program I built. I made up a style of music called barnyard electronics where I mix older forms of earth music with samples and more modern recording techniques. I have my own label called Minner Bucket Records that puts out cassettes, 45s, and downloads. My newest record as of today [June 19, 2014] is called Junior Sampled and I did the whole thing in Renoise. I have used an MPC sampler on several projects and really felt at home in Renoise and love that program. Thanks to the Renoise team!

The Megadrives

Drawing much of their inspiration from Electronica duo peers such as The Crystal Method, The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk and Orbital. The Megadrives unabashedly revel in expressing themselves using the computer to output original, propulsive sounds in their quest to bring every listener together on the dance floor via the rhythms & melodies.

Their live shows—whether fierce or chill, are a symphony of laptops, mixers, MIDI controllers, effects and mixing techniques—the definition of intense creative energy. Wherever they perform, they leave audiences mesmerized. They are a unique phenomenon in a scene dominated by the DJ—all tracks performed are self-produced, mixed live, and tweaked through the software Renoise. Within the realm of electronic music, the Megadrives refuse to limit themselves to one particular genre, exploring any style that excites them. They’re at their best unleashing an ever-changing, nonstop, mega-fluid mix of Acid, Breaks, Down Tempo, Drum & Bass, Dub, Glitch, House, IDM, Psychedelia, Trance, Trip Hop and hybridized sounds that have yet to be labeled.

ri

René made his first musical steps on his Atari 800XL in the mid 80s. After lots of programming his tunes in Atari Basic, his experiments continued using different trackers on his AMIGA computers - Octalyzer, Octamed and Octamed Soundstudio - during the AMIGA period in the 90s he played the keyboards in two bands starting from 1995 to 1999 and created music for lyrical performances named "Bleu" with a friend.

After a long time of silence interrupted by very rare Buzz sessions he found his way back to music. His new works are Renoise-only, no other hardware is in use. Creating music to him is like painting pictures as a hobby, mainly expressing punctual situations and scenery and his strange urge to place "acoustical monuments".

Audio Nail

Up and coming Dutch hardcore DJ/producer Audio Nail started producing music somewhere in the 90s. He has his roots in the tracker scene and has been working with a lot of different programs. These days Renoise is his obvious weapon of choice. Next to Renoise he uses drum pads and controllers for drum sequencing and effects tweaking/recording, most of which is done real-time/live.

His productions can be described as hard, aggressive and distorted. Influences range from reggae to metal, and from Mozart to Frank Zappa, as long as it's good music. Audio Nail's first EP is being released in February/March 2013 and many more will follow. His total lack of respect for musical boundaries gives him that edge every artist needs.

Julian Winter

Julian Winter is an independent musician from Germany. At a quite early age he learned that music can sometimes evoke arbitrary pictures in ones mind, and that that's the point where music becomes very emotive. His music contains a lot of ambient recordings from his surroundings, and if he finds something interesting, he's sure to records it and experiments with it on his DAW.

Claiming that the best thing about making music is that you become acquainted with a large number of artists from around the globe, his road has led Julian to meeting a lot of perfect strangers and very nice people in real life, as well as on the world wide web.

2methylBulbe1ol

2methyl (aka 2methylBulbe1ol) is an up and coming audio heavyweight from the East of France. He started to play the guitar when he was young, surrounded by the filthy sounds of Post-Hardcore, Grindcore and Noise Rock. His love for these genres feeds into his electronic music, as he tries to translate the raw power and energy of these styles into his own sound. His discovery of Venetian Snares and Xanopticon opened new boundaries for him to explore, and the result of these influences can be heard in his music; where crushing bass lines and aggression meet heavy complex beats and intricate melodies. 2methyl attempts to use music as a form of narrative, using his mixes to lead dance floors through intriguing cyberpunk, industrial soundscapes. 2methyl's releases to date include 2 EP's (one a split with Niveau Zero, the other solo) on Rotator's Ruff Recordings label, another EP on komodo dragon records, remixes for Tympanik Audio, Jarring Effect and a brand new Ep on OverclockHeadz. He has shared the stage with Eight Frozen Module, Niveau Zero, Sinister Souls, Counterstrike, Reso, Dope D.O.D, Luke Viber, Shitmat, Igorrr, Stazma, Rotator...

Daed

Daed is a producer from Houston, TX. whose affinity for hard, thrashing sounds emerged 15 years ago during a brief home-schooling stint that drove him to practice guitar daily. After 8 years in various black metal bands, a fellow band member introduced him to Renoise , thus opening him up to a new realm of heavy, intricate beats and sound design. His musical style could be described as a mutant bastard child of breakcore, acid, braindance, metal and drill n' bass.

Paula Daunt

Paula Daunt wrote her first song at the age of 7. Her favourite pastime then, was hitting pots and pans while her grandma tried to sing and play the organ. It was quite obvious that Paula had a talent for punk, novelty, variety and anything that could catapult her wild mind into the next melody. Using guitars, a bass, pedals, MPC1000, a 707, her all-time favourite software, Renoise, well pimped with bit-crushing, seizure inducing VST plugins, samples, and her voice, Paula manages to present us with anything from melancholic drones and atmospheric ambient tunes overloaded with strings to Lo-fi booty and the good old breaks; most of it, pretty catchy.

She has taken part in several short-lived radio programs, composed soundtracks for documentaries, a play, sang with a swing band, played heavy techno in Sao Paulo in the early noughties, then jungle and drum n’ bass in the unfriendly south-east London, until she got fed up with the queue of MCs and all the rewinds in 2010, when she finally moved to her beloved chosen home, Berlin.

Now she remixes her mates' tunes, makes soundtracks for fashion film, and produces tracks for various compilations under the name of Paula Daunt and Agnosie. Her tracks are far too eclectic for a sane EP, and that’s why the underground appreciates this deranged girl so much.

Matus began his first attempts at production in 1996, experimenting with hardcore and trance before discovering drum 'n bass - an ideal medium to capture the diversity of his style, which incorporates influences from classic rave to ethnic folk music.

Vaccine

Having been involved with the promotions end of the industrial rock and IDM music scenes since she was a teenager, and running a drum and bass record label with her husband, ASC, whom she also manages, writing her own music - after she'd been promoting other people's for years - was a logical progression.

Drawing inspiration from synaesthesia and her melting pot of musical influences ranging from Portishead to Skinny Puppy, Vaccine's style has been recognized as being considerably more melodic and not necessarily as dancefloor-orientated as her male cohorts. XLR8R magazine noted her "subtle melodies and echoed vocals", as well as stating that "(Vaccine's) constructions aren't necessarily main floor rave fodder, but rather, comedown music for the 6 a.m. afterhours." She is also notable for being the first female producer signed to a label in dubstep, Hotflush Recrodings, within what was up until then a genre whose producers were almost, if not entirely, male. Her DJ mixes as well have attracted attention for their careful commitment to precise blends, mixing in key, and unexpected multigenre inclusions.

Never one to be confined by formulas or tempo, as evidenced by her DJ mix selection, Vaccine has recently been slinging her talents further afield partnering with elusive but lauded fashion designer Ernte on music for his runway shows, and garnering praise 30 bpm faster writing the melodic, IDM style of drum & bass popularized by Instra:mental and dBridge's Autonomic Podcast series. Additionally, Renoise, her sequencer weapon of choice in both the home studio and live PA setting, has been pushing her as the face of their site on their music player.

Jonas the Plugexpert

Jonas' detailed descriptions of mangled digital soundscapes filled with filigree creatures and atmospheric sceneries can only be explained from serious head trauma in his youth ‘caused by an exploded commodore 64. Imagine a tracking shot through a world with swampy bass-lines, racing snares and drum-sets flying in helicopters overlooking sinus-wave-snakes hanging from infinite tree structures of hierarchical noise.

Jakub Gaudasinski

Born in Poland behind the iron curtain in the early 80s, Jakub attended his first music lessons in classical cello. As part of a family of artists and cold war revolutionaries, Jakub's childhood was a colorful mixture of art, strong personalities and beautiful countryside summers by the river. This was a start to what was to be a turbulent and surreal journey into the world of music.

These days Jakub is a composer, producer and a multi-instrumentalist. His auditory palette was forged in the fires of computer programming and field recording. With the frequent use of all manner of human voice and esoteric instrumentation, he was able to create a truly unique and organic sound which, with the help of many television appointments, has now been heard in just about every corner of the world. Jakub is currently running Desa One project studio responsible for artistic endeavors such as Desa Systems and Final Configuration.
