SPEEDY J (Electric Deluxe) / NL
Together with Laurent Garnier, Aphex Twin and Richie Hawtin, Rotterdam’s SPEEDY J helped define Techno since 1991 with albums like Ginger, G Spot, Public Energy No. 1 and Loudboxer – spearheading labels like Plus 8, Novamute and Warp.
His latest projects span the audio-visual pioneer work of Umfeld, his label Electric Deluxe, his Event Series Electric Deluxe presents, and his upcoming Album Project.
Jochem Paap (the Rotterdam artist owes the nickname Speedy J to his DJ skills) is unanimously considered to be one of the first techno producers to come from the Benelux. Together with people like Laurent Garnier, Aphex Twin and Richie Hawtin he helped raising the genre just after it had escaped the Detroit delivery room.
Since the early nineties, Speedy J has released labels like Plus 8, Warp and Novamute. But while techno develops into a dominating force on many dance floors worldwide, Jochem Paap, after the albums G Spot (1993) and Ginger (1995), turns left and heads for more arable pastures.
On Public Energy No. 1 (1997) and A Shocking Hobby (2000) the sound wizard exchanges flowing, harmonious techno for a much more complex sound, filled with colliding samples, crackling rhythms and tremendously thrilling turns.
The next must -attend party will be hosted at the Drugstore’s Secret Chambers on the 8th of October featuring local stars 33.10.3402 and Nemanja Krstic. The great releases straight from Belgrade on various labels these days! We are very proud of every each one of them! Guys are cooking real good!
33.10.3402 / LIES Records and Nemanja Krstic / Rough House Rosie will play together in Drugstore!
On the same night Drugstore’s secret garden will host 5 years of Mystic Stylez DJ collective. Guest star is legendary DJ Zed Bias followed by exclusive garage DJ set by legendary Brka from Belgrade.
Our personal favorite the man behind the red mask better known as Redshape will be playing in Drugstore on the 4th of November. Doors are open from 11 pm.
The man behind the red mask has been one of the key figures of the new wave of Detroit influenced revival of techno in the new millennium. While building up the legend and the myth behind his DJ and live appearances, he’s been delivering numerous records on labels such as Running Back, Delsin, Styrax Leaves, Music Man, 3024 and his own label Present, curving his place in history.
It is Drugstore’s honor to be included into Redshape’s 10 YEARS LIVE TOUR 2016!
Yet again, you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to the new horizons. Each time, there is the same task: do you dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, the fulﬁllment, the bliss.
