Electronica Podcast – Episode 34: Heron

Originally published at Electronica. You can comment here or there.

Many times, biographies of techno acts start by singing their praise of an extremely early, extraordinary talent on synthesizers and other electronic devices. In Heron’s case, things are different: Because Martin Spittel has been shaped musically since his childhood, the influences were as diverse as music can be. On one side, there was his grandfather, who played various instruments, and to whom young Martin related closest to and whose influence still lasts until today. On the other side there were his cousins who were not much older than himself, enthusiastic about AC/DC, and band members themselves. Over the course of the following years, he explored the diversity of Black, Death and Trash Metal, EBM and Industrial, right up to Detroit Techno.

Ever since then, Heron’s environment served as compensation to fierce parties and expanding his musical horizon. This symbiosis from the love of nature and the musical influences from his early childhood are a direct reflection of Heron’s entire life. Following the scream of the waders (limicoline birds), he moved to picturesque island Norderney in 2005. There, exploring the island’s national park, he decided to live up to his enthusiasm about nature by going to study landscape ecology at the University of Münster. It turned out: The relocation to Münster was the initial spark for his career; the months in Norderney were inspiration for the name of his label “Limikola” which was founded in late 2008 and now enjoys enormous support by both DJs and fans.

After launching his now very successful °Schaltkreis-parties with four friends in mid-2007, everything went quickly: His first own radio show “The Grasshopper Warbler”, contacts to prominent players like Someone Else and Heartthrob, and finally the moment in early 2008 during the season’s opening at Time Warp, when Richie Hawtin played all three tracks from Heron’s Retro EP. It was merely his second EP, released on a netlabel (Minisome), and it became immediately successful. A knightly accolade. The two have been in touch regularly since.

The journey that Heron started lead to his bombshell track “Welcome to the Adventure Club” that charted in the Beatport charts in 2008, and continued with remixes and releases for Synewave, Supdub, Swap, micro.fon, Prosthetic Pressings and Sleaze Records. In 2010, it will culminate with a tour across North and South America in the summer as well as with label nights with other labels like Sleaze in Berlin at the end of the year.

On The Decks @ Colors (Moscow)

Originally published at Electronica. You can comment here or there.

Гостями следующей нашей вечеринки серии «On The Decks» – Alex Meshkov и Ed Vertov.

Sasha Khizhnyakov
Sasha Khizhnyakov was born on April 1, 1988, in the settlement of Belorechenskiy, the Irkutsk Region (Eastern Siberia, Russia). In 1996 in his room one might heard an ambiguous Wu-Tang, favorite Daft Punk and UK Garage with all its substyles. In 2000 began to dance «high» break-dance with his team LSB. He arranged parties growing every year into open airs. Putting an end to the career of a dancer in 2004 Sasha became a beatmaker of local hip-hop groups appearing with them as a dj. It lasted not so long, and later on Sasha paied weekly visits to a legendary Irkutsk night club, «Object 01». After graduating from college in Summer 2007 he returned to a turntable again. The performance at the festival «Biopole» , which takes place in the Buryat Republic at a beautiful lake Baikal, became the right place for his inspiration. In October 2007 he started his radio-show Electronica at 104.4 FM in the town of Usolie-Sibirskoe under the nickname of «Sasha Mix». Some time later the show was in online rotation in Moscow, St.-Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Belgorod, Ulan-Ude and other towns. The main idea of the show was to get people acquainted with the music which they couldn’t hear every day due to the fuss of the life in small towns and their suburbs. The representatives of the undeground movement of the Irkutsk Region frequently came to the studio, each of them told his/hers stories , opinions and impressions while demonstrating favourite records.

In May 2008 Sasha started a similarly-named label in the support of his radio-show which by that moment was actively discussed in the Web due to the shared podcasts. The releases happened monthly gaining their own listeners and musicians. Today there are more then 50 of them! There are almost all both key young and perspective musicians and already successful representatives of Russian and Western electronica in the list of his artists. In Winter 2008 Sasha returned to writting music. He started his fresh experiments under the nickname of Nine Fake Tears, and he still works on it. First works released on labels Electronica and Passage. 6 months later a new project River’n’Sea started its being. It includes Sasha and his friend Dmitriy Yakovlev. In Summer 2009, simultaneously with performances, the guys began to write joint tracks. 3 months later their first works received support from Tiefschwartz, Matt Star, Franco Bianco, Pheek, Sebastian Koch and others. Later on there followed the signing of first contracts with labels Darek (Switzerland), Cimelde (Romania), Aenaria (Italy), Damm Records (Germany), Baile Musik (Croatia), Blumenbeat (the Ukraine), Herz ist Trumpf (Germany) and others. In December 2009 the guys moved to Moscow where they became RTS.FM residents and frequent guests of such clubs. During his leisure time, free from tours and studio works, Sasha keeps on taking an active part in the life of the label. He works not only on Electronica, but also on new label Compromat with Stepan Chernov aka Kammerton.

Alex Meshkov
Alex was born in the old Russian town Smolensk in the family of medical officer. With his parents getting assignments all around Russia and abroad, Alex travelled a lot, including several years in East Germany. In the year 1989 he moved over to reside in Moscow. In 1993 he found himself interested in avant-garde fashion. In the year 1996 the «PTUCH» magazine awarded Alex as the best avant-garde designer – he received their «Golden Ptuch» prize. Alex coped with his fame in a rather strange way – quite soon he became bored with fashion design and left this business. Long before taking his final decision to become a DJ, Alex was making his own mixes for his fashion shows. His professional dj career was started in 1996 in «Aquatoria» club. In a while he became the resident-DJ of the legendary «Substation» underground radio station, being remembered from that time for industrially-dark atmosphere of his night radio-shows: dark ambient & trip-hop; Saturday morning: techno & electro shows. After the «Substation» was closed, Alex worked as a DJ at the «Station 2000″ and «Dynamite» radio stations. 6 years he was a resident of world-famous internet-radio Deepmix. Today the name of DJ Alex Meshkov is associated with an epoch of the Russian techno scene as well as with a significant list of night-clubs. The most legendary of them but alas now not existing are: Luch, A-club (resident), Territoria (resident), MiX (resident), Gorod. From the year 1999 Alex creates music under the name of “Nooncat”, his personal musical project. Nooncat’s smart and neatly true tracks have been released on the European labels: Salo, Konvex-Konkav, Trapez, MIS, Treibstoff, Trenton, Dilek / Darek; and on the russian labels: Pro-Tez, Lichen, Between Us, Phlegmatek, Electronica. In 2004 the Moscow «16 Tons» club awarded Nooncat with a famous «Golden Gargoyle» as the best dance project of the year. At the present time he plays in “Shanti”, “Arma”, “Propaganda” and “Mio” Moscow night clubs, also on internet-radio Rts.fm. The geography of his performances is wide: Germany, Macedonia, Romania, Switzerland, France, Poland, England, Austria, Serbia and all across Russia. His DJ-ing style is rather wide and variable, however always original: from minimal to techno and techouse with deep influences and light touch of melodies.

Ed Vertov
Ed was born in Moscow in 1977 and moved to Los Angeles in 1998, where he went to school to pursue his dream to become a filmmaker, but in 2003 Ed and his old time friend Anton Kubikov of SCSI-9 (Kompakt) decided to set up an international electronic music record label Pro-Tez Records. It took two years to set it up.

It was launched in 2005 and joined vast Kompakt Distribution Family. Now the record label is getting worldwide recognition and with number of releases proved to be an exquisite music vessel for young and never heard before musicians.

Ed worked for years at Amoeba record store in Hollywood where he was deeply involved in electronic music department, He travels around and performs in Los Angeles, Chicago,Moscow,Berlin and makes music which will come out one day. He played along side with John Tejada, Mike Huckaby, ARK, Marc Schneider, SCSI-9, Nooncat, Tadeo, Mathias Kaden,Paul Brtschitsch Appendix Shuffle,Nathan Fake,Dntel of Postal Service and more, Ed also organized his own events called Quadrant in Los Angeles with John Tejada that were a very intimate vinyl listening parties with close friends and music lovers. Now Ed Travels more extensively between Los Angels and Moscow where he performs as a dj. He played in such Moscow venues as Propaganda,Solyanka, Lebedinoe Ozero,Shnati, Arma and more. Also you can see him play on RTS.FM Internet radio station in Moscow and Chicago on a regular basis. In October 2010 Pro-Tez records label Showcase reached Berlin for the second time at the Club Arena. Pro-Tez records is at full power now with 18 vinyl release, 4 Digital and 1 CD album.
