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…”
DJ 7up//Steel City Funk – Ass shaking house music

“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.

Humanaut is proud to present:
(Underground Quality, Conneticut)
DJ Jus-Ed, the Connecticut-based veteran house DJ/Producer will touch down in Pittsburgh for an extended set of sexy, sunbathed cutting-edge house jams. With dance music roots planted in the 80s, Jus-Ed reemerged in 2001 following a brief retirement with his beloved Underground Quality imprint : a launch pad for neo-classic house jocks such as Levon Vincent, Fred P. (Black Jazz Consortium), and DJ Qu. His long-running radio show, now a weekly feature on MyHouse-YourHouse.net , has developed a religious following from veteran house staples, up-and-comers and audiophiles alike. Bring yourself, your appetite, a positive attitude and prepare your asses for an afternoon of outdoor Underground Quality vibes.

Caley Martin is a gentleman jack of all nothings. He doesn’t come from a long line of mixologists, however he has laid it down and taken it to town with the Humanaut boys in Pittsburgh more than once, provided countless hours of quality online radio via his show, “Sonic Torsion” on MCast (http://www.mcast.mercuryserver.com/?page_id=7), and been a wiley, goofy son of a gun in the process.
Martin’s influences are varied and tasteful, as you will soon notice during this two hour encroachment into your mind! Hour 1 features choice downtempo selections, while hour 2 ramps up into something more pulsating. Neither hour is beyond Caley’s domain, and soon neither will you! Enjoy!
