Three years ago Allen Avanessian, Plug Research founder and keen producer in his own right, decided it was time to bring his extended family a little closer together: “I had always wanted to work with different producers from my label as well as producers and MCs I respected from around the globe, to create an album that would fit the aesthetic of what we feel is a progressive move for electronic music.”

In addition to running Plug Research, Allen has been DJing since he was 12 and producing since he was 17, while Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel, The Postal Service and Figurine), his prime collaborator on Headset has been a producer since the tender age of 13.

From this nucleus of Allen and Jimmy, who produced most of the album, Headset soon expanded to a loose association of illustrious contributors, with additional production by John Tejada and Daedelus, while Thomas Fehlmann (The Orb, Ocean Club) added atmospheres to “Sound of A Squint”. Words to the beats came from a number of local and distant MCs - in the true spirit of musical networking Non-GENETIC of the Shadow Huntaz (featured on “Then Again” and “Back Before”) not only brought Metalogic and his cousin Rocmon (who is also featured on “Then Again”) along to the recording, but also introduced Headset to Lady Dragon, who rhymes over “Grasping Claw” in Japanese.

    Djing since he was 12. LOL. What a twat. Which night clubs where they then? I love these muppets who try to tell the world there so cool. He may have leaned over a set of decks when he was 12 picking up his shorts that fell down while he was sucking his thumb. How old are you now?? 18? You better be If thtas the best you can do. 12, how funny. Such a pile of shite. Really
