[ K O N T R O L ]

minimal techno + avant house

every 1st Saturday at The Endup

featuring from Chile:


(Crosstown Rebels . Cadenza . Cynosure . Contexterrior)

(Wagon Repair . Vendetta . BPitch Control . Cocoon)

Originally capturing the international spotlight alongside fellow

Chilean artists Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano, Pier Bucci

has over the last decade become one of the most respected

names in modern techno, due in part to tracks like 2007's

monster hit, "Hay Consuelo". His unique live performance,

which fuses Latin rhythms and elegant melodies with a

German sense of efficiency and dancefloor-friendly beats,

has landed him slots at top clubs across the globe, as well

as appearances at most major festivals including Sonar,


and from Toronto via Berlin:


(Dumb-Unit . Trapez . WMF Records)

(Ware . Num . Alphahouse . Adjunct)

As a DJ of 15 years and an integral figure in the rise of

the Toronto techno scene, Jeremy P. Caulfield is a rare

example of an artist who can deftly combine experience,

skill, and forward-thinking ideas in style. In addition to

running the acclaimed "neuro-minimal" label Dumb-Unit,

these days Jeremy plays the world's best clubs and festivals

nearly every weekend, thanks to his tricked-out, re-edit

heavy sets which have established him as one of North

America's finest DJs.

Pier Bucci is on a quest to create his own vision of complex atmospheric rhythms. Much has been written about the recent emergence of Chile as an unexpected source of cutting edge electronica. Pier, alongside fellow countrymen and women are producing some of the finest and most original electronic music at the moment.

Pier's own take on techno uses classic Latin rhythms and vocals, with his love of abstract electronics, and Sheffield bleeps, combining this with his haunting Andean melodies, whilst colorful characters zip through his music, makes a lively collage of influences, underpinned by solid dancefloor beats.

A brief history of the last ten years show's Pier to be very busy. From the first releases in the late 90's on Dandy Jack's Ruta 5 Austral compilation, four acclaimed e.p.'s and a highly acclaimed album for Crosstown Rebels. The fruits of his collaborations with Luciano, bore the Monne Automnne [Lo-Fi Stereo, Germany] and Lucien-n-Luciano album projects for labels such as Peacefrog and Cadenza, Skipsapien together with Daniel Nieto [u-cover, Belgium; Mutek Rec, Canada], Mambotur with Argenis Brito [Multicolor, Germany], Bucci/Pink Elln together with Tobias Freund [Cynosure Records, Canada] and works with his brother Andres as Bucci [WMF Rec, Berlin; Cynosure Records, Canada] have been equally well received.

Last year we had releases on Wagon Repair, Cocoon, Cynosure and remixes for BPitch Control. The single of Hay Consuelo and the Chiloé e.p. for the Rebels.

In 2008 Pier has and the soon to be released album collaboration with Max Loderbauer and Argenis Brito as Maluco on Karaoke Kalk and further Pier Bucci e.p.'s are to follow in this year.

After all this studio time and experience, it's easy to understand why Pier's live set is known as one the best around. His explosive combination of Latin & European influences, dynamically delivered, is always guaranteed dancefloor entertainment.

At a time when so much techno feels like endless variations on a played-out theme, it’s heartening to know that there are still a handful of artists, labels and DJs who can combine experience, skill and forward-looking ideals in style. Step forward Jeremy P. Caulfield, who amply ticks all of the above boxes.

As proprietor of leading neuro-minimal imprint Dumb-Unit, DJ of widely-acclaimed repute, and occasional producer of stripped-back, ominous dancefloor bombs, Jeremy has emerged from his early days on the Canadian techno circuit to become a leading light of today’s underground club scene. Using his fifteen years of DJing experience as a springboard, Jeremy has utilised Dumb-Unit as a pivotal platform for the blossoming careers of artists including Butane, Lee Curtiss, Sweet N’ Candy and Seph, loosely defining a hinterland micro-scene of murky, intricate sounds that play with the darkest recesses of the mind while remaining firmly attached the propulsive drive of the dance-floor.

It’s an ambiguous definition best articulated by his series of Detached:Works mix tapes and CDs, which over the course of three volumes and 10 years neatly plots Jeremy’s evolution from sparky underground enthusiast to undisputed connoisseur of finely-tuned contemporary techno. From early residencies at Toronto’s legendary Blue and Fukhouse parties (where he knocked around with like-minded local jocks Adam Marshall, Ian Guthrie and Jeff Milligan, while playing alongside techno deities like Richie Hawtin, Derrick May and Jeff Mills), Jeremy’s established himself as one of North America’s finest DJs. In 2008 alone, alongside his residency at Watergate, (in his adopted home of Berlin) Jeremy has played nearly every weekend across the globe, including gigs at renown clubs and festivals such as Fabric, Fuse, Mutek, and the Sonne Mond Sterne Festival and tours of Japan, Australia and South America .

Meanwhile, his rare but intricate rocking live shows surface every once in a while to remind us that his darkly-tinged, boiled-down beats and distantly unsettling grooves are one of the most precious jewels in the jagged DU crown. Check his killer releases Dumb-Unit, Trapez and WMF if you need any proof.

Somewhere between his smart, re-edit heavy sets, his vigorously spiky artist releases, and his scandalously consistent label, there lurks the charred, elusive heart of Jeremy P. Caulfield. The fun part is trying to find it.
