Hailing from the old Chicago / Midwestern electronic music scene, Angel started as a DJ at the age of 14, and later released his first record in 1996 with his debut double-pack techno EP titled “Advanced Therapy” on DJ Hyperactives’s Contact Records. Since then he has continued to sling music, landing him on labels such as Naked Lunch, Afro Acid, Impact Mechanics, Combination Research, Driving Forces, Illegal Alien, Gynoid, Spark, Nachtstrom Schallplatten, Phobiq, and BoysNoize, and has also been featured on Tresor, Tronic, White Noise, International House Records, Moody and more.
In 2011, Angel joined the Afro-Acid team, home of DJ Pierre, and also established two labels- D-form with partner Steve Parker and his own techno label Slap Jaxx. Also in the works are new labels Owslah Music and Patseq and artistic collaborations with numerous artists, including an album with wife Maria Goetz. Angel’s music and his labels have already earned worldwide acclaim from such DJs as Dave Clarke, Ken Ishii, Dj Rush and more, and the future is sure to further establish his already lasting imprint on techno music.
Angel is now a 39 year old techno fart with a mild temper. As far as he’s concerned, and no matter what the trends are, techno will never die!!
