Joseph McGeechan's new solo project iFormat has a darker, much more aggressive industrial feel. Heavily influenced by sinister horror movies and eerie sci-fi soundscapes, this set gives a disturbing sense of foreboding into McGeechan’s dystopian, post-punk exploration of the decay of society.
This chapter in Joseph's transformation is a live set called "Leaving The Lines Behind". This set is composed of personal productions showcased at Unseen @ Studio 24 (Edinburgh, SCO) on July 6th.

PERC TRAX 2012 US TOUR Opening set @ Norad (Denver, CO) on June 8th
Stephen Penders, aka Mick Finesse, has been djing and promoting in locations ranging from Tokyo to Boston since 1999. Now based in Denver, CO, Mick has become an integral part of the local techno community. Having hosted the very popular Dissonance / Resonance afterhours, in addition to regular appearances at Beta’s Beatport Lounge and various other local clubs, Mick has been all the while tempering his own interpretation of techno. Obsessed with themes of context and contrast, Mick Finesse attempts to peel away layers, perception and prejudice in both his namesake and his music.
Stephen's unique warm-up set at Freq Boutique (Denver, CO) is what ultimately caught Ali's attention, then he followed up soon after with a release on Perc Trax. This set shows just another angle through the mind of Mick Finesse...

PPOD | 016 | Giorgio Gigli
May 15, 2012 09:55 PM PDT
Always evolving as an artist and as a producer, Giorgio Gigli draws inspiration from intense emotional experiences by using music as his form of communication. Each composition is created from moods, which are then transformed into waves, layers and substrates to create visual simulations and virtual landscapes in your mind. His music will slowly push you further and further into his world until you lose grasp on reality. Soon the simple voids, pitfalls, drones and dilated melodies become much more intricate and when those hypnotic rhythms start to transform... Your caught in his dream like a fly in a spiderweb, and you can't get away...
Giorgio's love for ambient music allows him the power to analyze and render almost every element and vibration during his productions as well as his dj sets, which is why he is one of the most exciting artists in the techno community to date. I hope you enjoy as much as I do, it's a personal favorite of mine. Enjoy!
