    Traversable Wormhole

    In 2009 a series of five anonymously produced ink stamped vinyl recorded releases appeared in the global techno scene under the mysterious guise “Traversable Wormhole. The series released exclusively on vinyl. The sound of “Traversable Wormhole is a unique signature of sci-fi laden techno music with gaps of time, space & bass in between sound & rhythm. Within a month’s time of it’s conception Volume 2 of the series appeared and a huge buzz was soon amassed on the project. Accusations on who was the artist behind the project ran wild. People all over the techno scene had made theories to who was behind it. The project quickly received huge support from many of the world’s most renowned techno shops such as Rub A Dub , Hardwax, Juno & Decks. Word traveled fast through the wormhole and it was soon reported that globally respected dj’s such as Chris Liebing, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Mathew Herbert, Ryan Elliot, Andrew Galluzi, Surgeon, Function, Frankie Bones, Surgeon, DJ Deep & Radioslave were all supporting the sound of TW. With the series fast approaching into further galaxies with the appearance of Vol 3. Techno cult blogsite MNMLSSG (http://mnmlssg.blogspot.com) tracked down TW via Twitter. A sonar ping was sent back to the popular blog and soon a “Traversable Wormhole” mix appeared anonymously on the site, receiving rave reviews. Their were also reports through the anonymous “Traversable Wormhole” Myspace profile† that dj’s from the dubstep scene were supporting the songs that had more of a broken beat structure in the series. As the series transgressed to Vol 5 by the year end of 2009 the mystique of anonymity continued to grow.

    To usher in the very start of 2010 “Traversable Wormhole” would release the sixth volume of the series. At the same time 20 year veteran techno artist/dj Adam X originally from NYC and now residing in Berlin would be invited to partake in a feature called “Playing Favorites” on “Resident Advisor” the worlds biggest electronic music website. As Adam’s feature read towards the end he would subtly take claim as the producer behind “Traversable Wormhole”.

    While traversing the wormhole, Adam has crossed paths with Chris Liebing and his CLR imprint. Forthcoming in Summer 2010 CLR will release “Traversable Wormhole” Vol 1-5 in digital format for the first time ever with all five volumes being digitally remastered in the highest of quality. Also planned for release at the same time period is a massive remix project that maybe the biggest ever in techno. “Traversable Wormhole” has found itself remixed from some of the best in the scene. Surgeon, Marcel Dettmann, Sleeparchive, Function, Chris Liebing, James Ruskin, Peter Van Hoesen, Terence Fixmer, Kevin Gorman, Tommy Four Seven & Brian Sanhaji have all taken a turn in remixing TW. The remix project will see release on both vinyl and digital format.

    AND NOW comes the “Traversable Wormhole Vol 1-5? a full length mix of all 10 songs, mixed by ADAM X himself. In support of the CLR releases “Traversable Wormhole” will traverse the world with a live show tour starting in September 2010.


    Ancient Methods

    Pitch black techno war funk
    There's something about the fearsome crunch of Ancient Methods' sounds that defies dry technical description and demands that you go over the top, whether in talking about it or moving to it. Which isn't to say they make headbanging music - the "funk" part of their pitch black techno war funk is as important as anything, and their tracks have a good healthy dose of bump'n'grind running through them, even if that grinding is as much angle-grinder as bogling. The raw edges, thick-layered sound and general old-school soundsystem-in-an-industrial-building kick has leapt out amidst the minimal orthodoxy, creating a massive buzz over a few beautifully marbled pieces of vinyl with medieval etchings on the labels, and prompting suggestions of a new industrial forward movement in the techno scene.

    Sunil Sharpe

    Coming through the traditional DJ route of pirate radio, outdoor raves and working on the front line of a record shop, Sunil Sharpe is one of Ireland’s most celebrated underground DJs. Honing his turntable skills in the late ‘90s, Sunil played his first club gigs at the end of 2000 – gaining a formidable reputation for his quick fire mixing and fast paced sets that were soon to be heard regularly at clubs across the country and abroad (kicked off by his first overseas gig at Berlin’s Tresor Club in 2001).

    Sunil is a tutor at Bray Institute of Further Education, where he has taught the DJ Techniques class each year since 2005, sharing his knowledge in many areas of dj-ing and the music industry. He has also been part of national station RTE 2FM’s ‘Late Night Sessions’ team since 2006 (after a long run on both local and pirate radio), where each month he supplies his favourite new selections of music as well as live recordings from recent gigs.

    Sunil’s production output has moved steadily, mostly since 2006. He has recorded for labels such as Tonewrecker, Bastardo Electrico, Open Source and his own Mantrap Recordings – a label (of “full-blooded techno, electro and experimental flavours”) he established in December 2007, which despite an irregular release schedule, has become a favourite with some of the scene’s leading djs and tastemakers.

    In 2009 Sunil coordinated club events at DEAF (Dublin Electronic Arts Festival) in its sadly last but arguably best year. It was during this that he formed ‘Earwiggle’ – which has become a series of one-off gigs in Dublin, hosting the debut Irish appearances of acts like Planetary Assault Systems, Adam X, Frank De Wulf, Ancient Methods, Reeko and Smear. After a near 8-year spell working at Spindizzy record shop (2002-10), Sunil has made the move to All-City where he recently established a space for new & secondhand techno/electro/house vinyl under the Earwiggle banner.

    2011 begins with the release of two new eps by Sunil on Labrynth and Takeover, with others soon to be announced. A firm believer in playing the very best records he has rather than only the new, Sunil’s DJ sets reflect his favourite styles from the past up to the present, with his trademark techno energy showing no sign of letting up.

    DeFekT aka Matthew Flanagan became interested in electronic music at an early age and began DJ-ing while still at school. On finishing school he followed up with a degree in Music Technology that introduced him to music production and modular synthesis. The connection he subsequently developed with synths lead him to begin creating electro which has been his passion ever since. It has allowed him to combine his love of synths, drum machines, and sci-fi to produce dark electro spiked with visions of our future
