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.

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.
::: SIGHT UNSEEN
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….

HUMANAUT LOUNGE (21+)
Patrice Scott’s raw and emotively charged sound is at the forefront of the latest wave of electronic music from Detroit, but he definitely isn’t the new kid on the scene.
If you’ve had your eye on the new blood coming out of the Motor City’s electronic music scene over the last few years, then you’ll almost certainly have heard Patrice Scott’s name uttered more than a few times. Scott witnessed the first waves of Detroit house and techno, becoming known on the local DJ scene and holding down residencies in both his native city and just across the border in Toronto. It wasn’t until 2006, though, that he entered the world of recorded music, releasing the melodically rich deep house of the Atmospheric Emotions EP on his own Sistrum Recordings. And it’s been difficult to ignore him since. Scott is deservedly rising through the ranks of the DJ elite.

As Long Island’s pioneer of rave parties, creator of the Caffeine brand and lifestyle, producer, and re-mixer, DJ Micro is one of the most recognized names in the history of electronic music. Nominated by DJ Times as “America’s Best DJ” and by the Club Music Awards for the “Best DJ Set” described by URB Magazine as the “Techno Maestro”, Micro’s versatility, smooth mixes, and superb sense of dance rhythms are forever exploring new musical horizons with his original style of mixing break beats, energy-driven trance, and progressive house continually entices audiences.
With the recent resurrection of his own label Caffeine Recordings, Micro puts his producing and mixing prowess to work for his own creations as well as working with up and coming talent. “I wanted to create an outlet for groundbreaking music. Some of the best stuff never gets heard. So, bringing back Caffeine [Records] this is my way of exposing it to the light.”
SHAWN RUDIMAN//Technoir Audio – LIVE TECHNO
Truely a consumate artist, he prefers to play without the use of computers or software. Rudiman’s style of live performance is done by very few others. It’s almost completely impromptu and “off the cuff”. He chooses to conduct his sets like a jazz band would: letting every machine flow like performers and have their particular freedoms and moment to shine. There is no preset structure or even style. It is all particular to that given day. Over 90% of all composition of the music and rhythms are composed there on the spot, for him and the audience to experience together for the first time
Sounds like: “Robots that had babies with humans and grew up on a steady diet of synthesizers, funky music, science fiction, grimey desolate environments. Then they interbred with drum machines…”

“There are a number of Italian electronic music producers that made the jump to international stardom. Luca Bacchetti, Davide Squillace, Marco Carola. But none has come with as defined—or, more accurately, refined—aesthetic as Donato Dozzy. Equal parts trance and techno, his sound is unmistakably his own, one honed over the course of years of DJing and production. In his wake, there have been a number of followers, producers putting their own spin on the dark and liquid techno that Dozzy has come to be associated with.”
- Todd Burns, “Italians Do It Darker”, Resident Advisor: http://www.residentadvisor.net/feature.aspx?1202 (A MUST READ!)
Please join us as we welcome one of the most distinctive techno DJs and producers in the world to Pittsburgh for a very rare stateside appearance.

TRAVERSABLE WORMHOLE [LIVE]
[Adam X, CLR] Berlin, DE
Saturday, Nov 20, 2010
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”.
Join us as Adam’s Traversable Wormhole project is unwrapped in Pittsburgh.
