Direct to Earth and Project One present a 3 hour set from Tim Xavier and the official debut of Lost in the Machine.
TIM XAVIER (Clink Recordings, Limited-400)
Tim Xavier's passion for music has kept him on the forefront of techno since his innovative releases on Blueline in Chicago a decade ago. His career began in Houston in the 90s, and then on to Chicago, Brooklyn and now Berlin, where he has resided since 2007. He is a veteran to the industry; and his dark, edgy production style has remained uncompromised through the ever changing genres of techno and house. He is also the owner and chief engineer at Manmade Mastering in Berlin; and this sleepy-eyed coffee addict defines cool as he cuts master plates for many respected record labels.
Tim’s music has been charted and played by leading artists around the world, and he has worked with many labels such as Cocoon, Minus, Sci-Tec, Podium, Timefog, Little Helpers, Sleaze, Droid Behavior and many more. He is also the owner of his own imprint, LTD400, which encompasses his irresistible combination of quirk, funk, space and drive. Tim spray-paints his signature icon on 400 sleeves of each release, a process that he says connects him more closely to his music and audience. He also works with partner Camea on her imprint Clink Recordings, with Tony Rohr as the ‘Afternoon Coffee Boys’.
On Stage, Tim’s current performances include a mixture of DJing, Live and Effects manipulation, carrying out his visionas he sees fit. He creates a unique experience with his maximal sound quality and music selection, in which he combines loops and pieces from his own production. He is regularly on tour and performing across the globe, capturing his audiences with his signature sound. Tim's relentless devotion to providing cutting edge audio continues to keep him on the forefront of innovative dance music, and as he continues to grow it is apparent that we have still yet to see the best of his work.
LOST IN THE MACHINE (Hypnotic Room Dub Series)
Direct to Earth resident Patrick Gil has had a hot year in 2012. Releasing techno heaters on labels such as Translucent, Gynoid Audio, and Fierce Animal recordings, he has definitely picked up some important listeners. Recently, Pfirter played a few of Patrick's releases in one of his 4 hour sets at Berghain.
Longtime San Francisco DJ David Javate has shared the decks with legends such as Derrick May, Tim Xavier, Stacey Pullen, Dustin Zahn, John Tejada, Mark Henning, Mike Huckaby, and Kenny Larkin to name a few. He holds a residency at Killswitch, an event focusing on underground techno and house. He has also performed at Portland's Closer Electronic Music Festival, Denver's Great American Techno Festival, and he is currently one of our favorite people in the world.
Patrick and David, a well rounded duo with strengths in both DJing and production have teamed up in the studio to create Lost in the Machine. They have an upcoming release in February of 2013 on the Hypnotic Dub Room Series label, and many more on the way. Come see the official debut of one of San Francisco's newest techno duos.
