(Artist, DJ, Producer, Remixer)

Blending a fascination with Parliament funk and electro-pop (Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode), Thomas Barnett advanced the cause of techno by forming one of its most influential labels, Transmat, with Derrick May. Not long after Barnett began making music, he hooked up with May at Detroit’s legendary club, The Music Institute. The two recorded “Nude Photo,” which launched the record company, but Barnett later left to go back to college. He continued recording while there, and upon his return from hibernation, released “Unconscious World” and “Liquid Poetry” on the Infonet label as Subterfuge. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide …
