Even before discovering Metrolux label, I knew XDB would be an essential music reference in my future, not only as a Dj but also as a researcher in electronic music, more specifically House and Detroit Techno.

XDB is Kosta Athanassiadis – German by birth and in residence, with Greek parentage. His roots are in the central German town of Göttingen. It was here that he began DJing in the early nineties; where he worked in a record shop; where he ran a radio show for five years; and the base from which he established the Metrolux record label in 2006.

For many people, it was at this point that XDB appeared on their radar. His debut ‘Jackintosh EP’ and the following ‘Descap EP’ made a splash with heads, but whilst the shimmering dub techno moments were perhaps the most obvious hook, subsequent tracks defied easy categorisation – an early indication that the person behind the music took a broad view of electronic music, caring not for stylistic pigeonholes.

This is a live recording of the first couple of hours of Ben UFO playing the Selectors stage at Dekmantel Festival 2014 in Amsterdam.

Jeff McIlwain has been producing his visceral, melodic strain of abstract electronic music as Lusine for over 10 years now. Originally a Texas native, McIlwain met Shad Scott while living in LA and put out his self titled debut on Scott’s imprint, Isophlux. He relocated to Seattle in late 2002 and began steadily releasing his music on Ghostly International. McIlwain has also contributed tracks to various compilations and remix releases on Mute, !K7, Kompakt, Asthmatic Kitty, and Shitkatapult. In 2009, he released the album, “A Certain Distance”, which featured the single, “Two Dots.” His recent, critically acclaimed album, “The Waiting Room”, was just recently released in 2013.

McIlwain has performed throughout the US and abroad, including the SXSW, Mutek, DEMF, Sasquatch and Sonar festivals, and sets at London’s esteemed Fabric nightclub, Tokyo’s Unit, and Berlin’s Berghain and Watergate nightclubs. He has been involved in the scoring of various film and commercial projects: co-scoring (with David Wingo) the 2008 film “Snow Angels” (with Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell), and “The Sitter” (Jonah Hill) and scoring the 2009 film “Linewatch” (with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Omari Hardwick). McIlwain teamed up with David Wingo again to score the film “Joe” (Nicolas Cage), which was released in the Spring of 2014. He just recently released his new “Arterial” EP for Ghostly in August of 2014, and is lining up tour dates for the Fall.

"Es träumt sich sehr verschieden nach Gegend und Straße, vor allem aber ganz unterschieden nach Jahreszeiten und nach dem Wetter. Städtisches Regenwetter ist in seiner ganzen durchtriebenen Süße und seiner Lockung in die frühe Kindheit sich zurückzuziehen nur dem Kind einer Großstadt verständlich. Natürlich nivelliert es den Tag und bei Regenwetter kann man tagaus tagein dasselbe tun, Skat spielen, lesen, oder sich streiten, während Sonne ganz anders die Stunden schattiert und auch dem Träumer weniger freundlich ist. Darum muß man den ganzen Tag in aller Frühe umgehen, man muß vor allem früh aufstehen, um zum Müßiggang ein gutes Gewissen zu haben."

— Walter Benjamin: Das Passagen-Werk, GS Band V-2, S.996. (via diesebastionbehrisch)
