Joining forces in a techno union this October the dedicated techno heads from Disconnected and lovers of all things deep & melodic Shrug bring you one of the worlds most influential techno artists who’s been at the forefront of the art form for longer that most of you have been filling dance floors.
Correlating a following in his European homeland of the Netherlands for his European take on Detroit techno Steve has cemented himself in Techno annuals of history.
In 1995 Sterac aka Steve Rachmad released his first album 'Secret Life of Machines' on Amsterdam imprint 100% Pure. A composition of nine beautifully sultry tracks from the melodic techno flow of ‘Axion’ to the sheer brilliance, beauty and soul of ‘Astronotes’. It was hailed as a defining highlight in Techno history.
17 years later, Sterac has reached back to that classic milestone in Detroit Techno’s heritage and has given it a whole new lease of musical life for release on 100% Pure in June.
Sterac adds “I still own the equipment that I used back then, so I remade a selection of the tracks with my studio machines - a Roland TR-808, R-8m, U-20, Juno 106, JX 8p as well as my Yamaha TX-81z and FB-01."
Following the remastered release in June on 100% Pure, Steve delivers his own remix treatments, then we bring the heat to the summer with a massive rollout of headliner remixes in August by Ricardo Villalobos, Joris Voorn, 2000 and One, Christian Smith, Joel Mull, Heiko Laux, Marc Romboy, Samuel L Session, Vince Watson, Klartraum and Nadja Lind.
