Born in 1980 and raised in the Detroit area, Luke Hess has harnessed a deep appreciation for electronic music and the expression of the underground movement.
His background in mathematics and engineering has given him a scientific approach to the dance floor, using frequencies, tones, and soundscapes to transform surroundings and mood.
In 2003 he recorded his first promotional mix CD release for UR/Submerge. Since then, his faith based music production has landed him a seat with FXHE and Planet-e in Detroit.
His debut album was released in early May 2009 by Denmark based label Echocord.
In 2010 he began his own interpretation of Detroit techno with his new Detroit project and record label - DeepLabs.
His sophomore album "Keep On" was released on FXHE records in 2012 and received a Recommended 4.5/5 rating on Resident Advisor.
Hess is regarded as a perfectionist in his live sets and behind the decks layering his tracks in a very detailed and hypnotic manner.
He has played at notable venues and events such as Tresor (Berlin), Culture Box (Copenhagen), Berghain (Berlin), Unit (Tokyo), Detroit Electronic Music Festival (Detroit), Fabric (London), The End Up (San Francisco), Golden Pudel (Hamburg), Sirup (Zagreb), Weekend Club (Berlin), Cubic Club (Madrid), Space (Ibiza), The Bunker (NYC) and many other venues all over the world.
Luke's continued hard work in the studio and in his performances combined with his unyielding interest in technology and sound will no doubt stimulate the boundaries of electronic music.
Noël Jackson is a DJ, producer, artist, and hacker born in Detroit. He is the founder and A&R at Hypertone Records.
The monthly Turrbotax parties have become a staple in New York’s underground electronic music scene, catering to dancers looking for a different club experience. At the head of the party/label, along with Rem Koolhaus is cofounder and resident DJ, Contakt. Throughout the years, the label heads have refined their parties to ban photography and withhold lineup information to remind people that, “Turrbotax is not an indie-rock concert; it’s a loud, banging, sweaty dance party.” With his far-reaching collection of electronic music drawing from UK influences, classic New York garage, Chicago house, and Detroit techno, he’s bound to curate a set that will get the party bumping.
