For 17 years, DJ Shiva has brought a multitude of techno flavors to dancefloors throughout the US. From Chicago jack to Detroit soul, from the deepest to the darkest techno, her attention deficit disorder requires variety in both music and technique. Her technical skills on the decks are highly respected, but her truest talent lies in her knack for contrast and composition.
No stranger to production, her releases on labels like Gynoid Audio, Chroma, Slap Jaxx, and Sonic Convergence are known for their drive and grit; each of them slices of machine funk with a layer of dirt thrown on top.
She would endeavour for musical stardom, but enjoys doing what she loves best: playing music from the heart and never sacrificing her love for the underground. DJ Shiva lets the music speak for her, so bring on the bass and the dark rooms while you enjoy this veteran DJ laying down the thickest of techno grooves.
Memnok’s music evokes dark spirits and black energies. His name is Jeremy Brown, a native of West Michigan not too far from Detroit, and his music speaks this reality. Despite the renowned bleakness of this area of the world, Memnok masters the ability to channel his creative energy, yielding a product that is sinister and moody while retaining a level of stripped-to-the-bone dark funk rarely heard amongst a myriad of techno, and minimal producers today. He is co-owner of Fourth Kind along with Duky. With support from big names, such as Richie Hawtin, Audio Injection, Cisco Ferreira (The Advent), DJ M-Traxxx, Claude Von Stroke and Andrea & Luca
