Podcast 017 comes from our good friend Thomas Schrieiber. We met Tom through his Rizumu parties based in Philadelphia.

Thomas Schreiber brings a playful cleverness, warmth and emotion to the dancefloor. His style of stripped-down funk and rhythm is back-dropped by a tapestry of strange and sexy soundscapes.

Thomas began mixing records in 1996 and moved to Philadelphia in 2002 when the landscape there was sparse. As the key founding member of rizumu, Thomas bridged the gap between the already established local collectives and organized undergrounds on a weekly and monthly basis, thereby setting up a foundation around which the growing community would converge.

Taking influence from the East Coast scene of the mid to late nineties and from the early Detroit Electronic Music Festivals, Thomas’s vision for making Philadelphia a hub for touring artists soon became a reality. Artists such as Derrick May, Daniel Bell, Kenny Larkin, Marcel Dettmann, Frank Bretschneider, Dandy Jack, Bart Skils, Seth Troxler and Josh Wink would play at the dark and intimate undergrounds for rizumu’s audience of knowledgeable listeners and dedicated dancers.

Thomas played events in NYC, Moscow, Detroit, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Santa Fe and Denver, for Kontrol, The Buker, Droid Behavior, Make Mistakes and more.

In 2009, Thomas picked up and moved to New Mexico to try something different. He immediately was at home with the Rocky Mountain techno scene and was fortunate to play some extremely memorable sets in both Santa Fe and Denver during this time. However, an unexpected turn of events found Thomas making the transatlantic move to Madrid only a year after his arrival.

Now settled into life in Madrid, Thomas has begun the journey of imparting his experiences to tape, quietly preparing for what comes next.

Humanaut is excited to announce that Revy (Kevin Lind) has joined Humanaut!

Revy originally hails from the Pacific Northwest, but after slipping into a dimensional rift in Tokyo he has found himself transplanted into the ‘burgh. Armed with a laptop and eclectic tastes in audio/visual design, his goal is to open minds to his unique blends of heady experimental techno and melt eyeballs with architextural pixeljunk. On top of managing his netlabel bleepsequence, releasing his own music on various digital and vinyl labels (Slant, From 0-1, Subsensory), and performing as a dj, vj, or liveact across the U.S., Revy shows no signs of slowing down. Unless you distract him with Chrono Trigger.

Humanaut presents:
The Bunker NYC

Over 8 years, The Bunker has slowly developed into one of the best places to hear underground techno & house music in the country. Based in Brooklyn’s Public Assembly, The Bunker parties showcase a wide variety of talent – simultaneously looking back to dance music’s roots and also highlighting the best of the emerging sounds. These legendary parties have introduced thousands of people to some of the most innovative music in the world and at the same time, helped rejuvenate the North American scene.

Please join Humanaut as we welcome the brainchild behind this influential party night, Bryan Kasenic (Spinoza), who will share the decks with resident DJ Eric Cloutier for a night of innovative and downright nasty dance music.

Opening duties will be delivered by Edgar Um, who coincidentally gave Mr. Kasenic his first booking right here in his original hometown – the Steel City.

:::::::::::::: PERFORMING ::::::::::::::




Skull Disco. A club night called FWD>>. England’s West country bass HQ, Bristol. These are just a few things you may associate with second wave dubsteppa Laurie ‘Appleblim’ Osbourne. He may have revved up his journey along the musical motorway with stints in early ‘90s NME favourites The Monsoon Bassoon, but it was a creative technology course at Uni in 2003 that sparked this phase of his life into existence and saw the birth of Skull Disco, which he ran with Shackleton. At early FWD>> and DMZ nights Laurie and his crew would be first in last out, and it was links he forged at these early dubstep nights (and his regular emails to the generic Ammunition in-box) that got him a job working at Tempa. Since then he’s released deep, deadly and esoteric tunes on Skull Disco, launched his own Apple Pips label, gone podcast-ballistic with widescreen sets for Dub War and Rinse FM, and fronted the latest in the venerable line of Dubstep Allstars mix compilations. Zoop and again, zoop.




From Everyday Junglist:
edj: Can you give us a little introduction to Sight Unseen – who are you, where are you based, how long have you been producing and what’s your history within drum & bass?

Sight Unseen are Adam and Preslav and we represent the Steel City – Pittsburgh. We’ve been producing drum and bass for about 8 years now, but we became obsessed with the music in the 90s.

edj: Do you make any other music, or is it strictly D&B?

We’re involved in various other projects covering different tempos of dance music and beyond. Some of those have seen the light of day already, more will hopefully see release over the next year.

edj: You are extremely enigmatic in your online presence with information about you scarce. Is this a conscious decision, and if so, why?

We prefer to have the music speak for us….
