Together with Laurent Garnier, Aphex Twin and Richie Hawtin, Rotterdam’s Speedy J has helped define techno since 1991, raising the genre just after it had escaped the Detroit delivery room with albums like Ginger, G Spot, Public Energy No. 1 and Loudboxer.
Since the early nineties, Speedy J has spearheaded labels like Plus 8, Novamute and Warp. After the albums G Spot (1993) and Ginger (1995), as techno developed into a dominating force on many dance floors worldwide, Jochem Paap chose to pursue other exciting avenues. On Public Energy No. 1 (1997) and A Shocking Hobby (2000) the sound wizard exchanged flowing, harmonious techno for a much more complex formula filled with colliding samples, crackling rhythms and tremendously thrilling turns.
Not one to be pigeonholed, over the years he has collaborated with video-artists and filmmakers, making the pioneering DVD Umfeld — an audio-visual electronic trip, which set the standard for many surround-sound composers. Meanwhile his boutique label, Electric Deluxe, has provided a platform for artists to explore more left-field techno projects and experiment with the ever-expanding technological possibilities of modern music making. As an extension of the label its sister event series, Electric Deluxe Presents, has turned Speedy J’s musical vision and penchant for innovation into a premier clubbing experience.
Recently the esteemed producer and performer has teamed up with with Stroboscopic Artefacts boss Lucy to form Zeitgeber. In 2013 the pair released their eponymous debut album to critical acclaim.
As a DJ, Speedy J is still as busy as ever, touching down in the most important venues and festivals worldwide every weekend. At the same time Electric Deluxe Presents has swelled into a globe-trotting brand with showcases scheduled for various major electronic festivals on the horizon.
