featuring minimal house & techno talent:
The Librarian (RaceCar Productions)
The Librarian, the moniker of Ohio-based Matthew Cooper, brings new life to a club scene that has become status quo with unabashed charisma and showmanship. His heart lies in the sounds of techno with strong gothic undertones and minimal composition. Constantly on the cusp of the avant-garde, he delights in giving listeners a sound that they generally have never heard. As a DJ he has performed with artists such as Ark, Outputmessage, Derek Plaslaiko, Kate Simko, JPLS, and Ryan Elliott of international fame. Although he has primarily been a DJ for the last four and a half years, production is his new direction and love. The Librarian brought us his first single entitled The Hornet's Nest from his forthcoming EP due out in Fall of 2007. Eram quod es, eris quod sum.
Bolus (RaceCar Productions)
Bolus is a 10-year veteran DJ and maven of the dance music scene. Over the years he has been significantly involved within many facets of the industry in Europe and North America. In 2000 Bolus began working promotions for the legendary clubs Renaissance and Pacha in Ibiza, Spain. Since then he has spent 5 seasons on the island promoting parties for some of the world's best clubs and DJing events. He also DJed and promoted a number of warehouse parties and clubs in London, England during the time he lived there. Having been influenced by clubs such as home, Fabric, DC10, and Space, Bolus' sound is described by many as an edgy, bass-driven and sometimes quirky blend of minimal house and techno.
Ben Alan (Hushabye House)
Ben Alan's DJ career started in 2000. His sound has been influenced strongly by early progressive house legends such as Sasha and Digweed, Steve Lawler and Layo and Bushwacka!. After holding down several residences around Louisville, Ben started moving into the darker, deeper direction of techno and minimal. Ben's current sound is reminiscent of techno legends Richie Hawtin (aka Plastikman), Steve Bug, and Adam Beyer. Ben is a "keyholder" of Louisville's favorite underground event cycle "Hushabye House" and currently holds down a residency at Nios 917 Baxter Ave.
