Milton Bradley (Grounded Theory/K209)
Born and raised in Berlin, Milton Bradley has been influenced by this versatile and ever changing city. The late 80′s brought acid house into his world and along with early Belgian techno, kick started his love affair with all things electronic.
Milton’s dj sets vary from dark experimental techno to the deepest industrial sounds and the most iridescent textures, fully encompassing the last 20 years of musical history.
In 2008 Milton gave birth to the ‘ Do Not Resist The Beat’ label. It displays an honest, open account of Milton’s musical preferences; everything is there for a reason, no surplus or padding. Dark experimental drones with unnerving atmospheric sparseness, industrial sounds fused with the early minimalistic theologies to create one of techno’s most defined and original styles.
Not resting on his laurels, 2010 brought the experimental and dark sub label ‘The End of All Existence’. One listen requires no explanation for the nom de plume, atmospheric, earth shuddering, cinematic techno at its finest. Alongside Henning Baer he then created ‘K209′ as an outlet to release more raw and industrial techno cuts. More recently in 2012 and inspired by the mid 90’s acid sound, Milton set up the label ‘Alien Rain’.
A true enigmatic insurgent, Milton’s heavy and atmospheric productions aid in the construction of complex promenades and have been hosted on not just his own imprints, but with other well respected labels. Bradley made his first release on Perc Trax in 2010. His mixes of ‘BCG’ EP were prime examples of what has become an enigmatic sound – deep, dubby rhythms coupled with chugging techno, reminiscent of an old school Detroit aesthetic.
Critically acclaimed releases on Prologue, Zooloft, and Ann Aimee, as well as the tracks on his own labels, have pushed Milton to the forefront of the techno underground and made him one of the most exciting up and coming producers in the genre. It’s this ability to stand out from the crowd that has seen his talent recognised and rewarded, prompting Grounded Theory to make Milton Bradley their resident dj.
Not a lot is known about Milton Bradley’s personal identity, but his work is far from secluded. He has gone from being a consumer to actually writing Berlin’s Techno history as a producer, remixer and international dj.
A Berlin citizen since 2004, originally hailing from Rostock, Germany, Mareena has a deep passion for electronic music. Sneaking into clubs at a young age to fuel her unquenchable desire to listen to the sounds of Techno, it soon inspired her to start honing her DJ skills. A true vinyl addict, Mareena represents the Berlin Underground scene whether organizing illegal parties in enchanting urban spaces or playing unmistakable House or Techno DJ sets in clubs.
Supporting some of the top wold renowned DJ’s at her residency in Tresor, Mareena also has her own night, New Faces, highlighting the very best new talent from the underground scene.
Whether peak time, warm up or after hour, her sound reveals an intelligent eclecticism and bold elements of surprise that show her rich knowledge of electronic music culture. Regardless of what you hear from Mareena, her DJ sets leave a deep yet uplifting impact on the mind body and soul.
Mischa is a product of shifting technologized urban lanscapes. Musically educated by computerized man mashines, aquatic bata particles, infinite technoid consistency, dirty acidic basslines and the ever changing rhythmic (re)formations of the hardcore continuum, he tirelessly searches for uncompromising dance music.
On his journey, Mischa has developed a very distinct hybrid between Techno, House, Grime/Dubstep and Drum and Bass. This Djs main purpose is to weave beautiful music to touch the souls of listeners and to make dancers dance more.
Born in Berlin, he inevitably found Hard Wax as a main educator in taste and is working there since 2010.
MVL (Work/All In)
MVL is a Dj and producer currently living in Berlin. He is not only working with a traditional 4/4 Techno and House palate, but is often likely to include experimental or unexpected sound into the journey. To him the atmosphere, feeling and also physical presence of the music are more important than just its basic functionality, although he has a fine sence for the floor. As a result MVL`s sets are a deep and unique take on classic and contemporary electronic sound – and also a very personal one.
