More On the artists :

Mike Shannon
Mike Shannon begun his techno career in the Toronto area as a DJ before eventually moving to Montreal, where he flourished as a producer during the early 2000s. Shannon grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, and began DJing at age of 12 when his father bought him his first mixer. Occasional excursions to nearby Detroit, where he would buy records and attend parties, spurned his interest in techno as a teenager. Shannon became a professional techno DJ around 1993 or so and began promoting events as well as performing at them. Towards the late '90s he broadened his reach from Kitchener to Toronto, where he landed a Friday-night residency at the fabled Industry club in 1999 and launched Cynosure Recordings that same year. He re-located to Montreal soon afterward to join the city's burgeoning glitch-techno scene fostered by the annual Mutek festival. There he befriended Jeff Milligan (Algorithm), with whom he toured Europe in 2000, and continued his transition from DJ to producer. His efforts were rewarded in 2002 when Force Inc released his debut album, Slight of Hand, and included him on the Montreal Smoked Meat compilation.
Jeff Milligan & Mike Shannon , have since joined forces to co- run , both Cynosure & Revolver . (their catalog includes seminal releases from fellow Canadian techno luminaries Akufen, Deadbeat and Pan/Tone amongst others ) .
Wth his own releases on Force Inc., Logistic, Dumb-Unit and Mathew Jonson’s Wagon Repair, 2006 , has been a busy year for this artist . With gigs at some of the most renowned clubs & festivals around the globe ; namely Panorama Bar , Watergate , Fabric , Yellow , in Japan ; not too mention one of the most memorable parties during the Sonar Festival, alongside , Matthew Johnson , Conrad Black e.t.c. a forthcoming stint in Japan , the rest of 2006 is set to be even busier .


Sutekh is renowned the world over for his fresh approach to electronic production. With releases on respected labels such as Cytrax , Delay , M_nus , Edit , Plug Research , Soul Jazz , Leaf , Background , and his own Context imprint plus many more , Sutekh is a favourite down our headquarters .
His DJing and live work have taken Seth across continents and through various lines of work, all the while absorbing numerous streams of culture and subculture, entwined and aligned by the constant thread of music of all shapes and forms. He has studied tabla in India and has, for the last two years, been studying and practicing daily on the baby-grand that sits in his San Francisco basement (the piano actually belongs to his neighbours Drew and Martin of Matmos!). This fascination with classical and jazz music and theory might not be a trait often found among electronic producers, but there's no doubt it informs his work. Manipulating and abusing computers, samplers, synthesizers, various acoustic instruments, and found sounds, he has created everything from deep, minimal house and techno to dense, dissonant noise collage, but never at the expense of the funk – these expansive, elastic rerubs sit together astonishingly well.
Sutekh is a true genius !
Come help him celebrate his 33rd birthday on the 29th !
