Biography

United States (1995 – present)

Jeff Samuel’s foray into music began in 1995 when he first witnessed a DJ set by Detroit’s Claude Young in Columbus, Ohio. He was then introduced to that city’s ele_mental collective, an inspiring core of artists including Titonton Duvante, the Archetype, and Todd Sines among others. Through their concept-oriented events which showcased the finer points of electronic music, Samuel became enthralled and began to DJ in 1996. Soon after, he purchased his first synth and drum machine.

While attending college in 1997, Jeff began exploring the possibilities of software-based music production where he saw greater possibilities for creativity and workflow. He encountered much scrutiny for attempting to make techno using only a computer. Nevertheless, by 1998 he had started to create his own completed tracks using an early version of Fruityloops (now FL Studio). Music from his first demo was signed to the German label LO-FI STEREO. The bidooba single was released in 1999 and featured a remix from Kompakt’s Michael Mayer. Other tracks from the same demo found their way to pioneer Daniel Bell, who released them on his 7th City label in 2001.

Jeff pushed into the new millennium continuing his DJ career, releasing more music, and completing his college degree in Audio Production simultaneously. 2002 proved to be a significant year which saw his Digital Self EP on Tektite remixed by Ricardo Villalobos, his abstract material released by UK label Emoticon, and the beginning of a long relationship with Cologne-based Trapez Recordings.
