First wave Detroit techno artist famous for early minimal sound combining elements of detroit with a stripped down and jacky sound more popular in Chicago at that time. Incredible crossover appeal on party tracks and stripped down minimal bleep techno, with crisp grainy claps that have made his sound and use of the RZ-1 drumbox unmistakable.

’s Plus 8 records. Had huge underground hit with “Losing Control” on UK’s Peacefrog
records in the mid-90’s, later reissued with remixes from Robert Hood
, Carl Craig
and Richie Hawtin
, the 3 biggest names in Detroit techno during that time. Continues to produce and DJ worldwide, his work is available now on dozens of labels and compilations.
