About the release
«Jeff brought a clever idea to me and that was to create a compilation for «The Escape Velocity» project. It was clear that it was important to keep the Axis’ space aesthetic and that the whole thing would be curated by Modularz, so I took the information Jeff gave me and began to select only a few producers that I felt that could contribute something different without orbiting too far out of the Axis Solar System.
The 6 planet discovery mission is a metaphor for discovering something else or out of the Axis’ norm and I used planets instead of artists to describe this. I asked each artist to name their created tracks after a newly discovered planet if they were given the opportunity and in total, we came up with 6 to complete the compilation.»
Developer is one of a few active DJ/Producers that emerged from the Los Angeles techno scene in the early 1990’s. After ending his residency as a DJ on radio station 88.7FM kspc back in 1995, Developer went to New York City to learn about the record distribution business and assisted in the launch of the first dedicated techno distribution company in Los Angeles » Entity Music Distribution » which worked with highly influential labels such as Axis Records, Reload Belgium, Plus 8 Canada as well as a large amount of techno label’s from Detroit, Chicago and Europe. One of the company’s main focuses was to expose the western USA, Mexico and most of Central and South America with techno music from around the world.
Over the last 2 decades Developer has played in various countries as well as taking part in laying a foundation in the LA techno culture by producing events and exposing various first time international talents through out the mid to late1990’s. Developer gained much of his acclaim and extensive performance history from his strong mixing and programming skills as well as the ability of playing 40 – 60 records per hour on 3 turntables with effect processor and sampler.
