From seductive, stripped-back techno injected with deep, dub-inflected excursions, Deepchild is a thoughtful and impossibly intelligent techno producer who’s electrifying live performance can leave you spellbound.
Based in Berlin, the Australian born artist has most recently released his chart-topping album Neukölln Burning to critical acclaim. Its his first album since 2008’s wonderful Departure on Future Classics and shows a more darker and intimate insight into the persona of the intriguing Deepchild. It is raw, seductively uncompromising techno, distilled from an arsenal of renegade drum-machines and decrepit synthesizers, with a live-PA embracing hardware-improvisation and excessive amounts of sweat. It is the sound of forgotten-technology, resurrected, of old machines singing a timeless blues, both intimately-familiar and curiously alien. And that is just one face of the mysterious dj producer.
Deepchild’s reputation as a pioneering underground techno producer was solidified with a string of successful 12-inches on labels such as Trapez, Thoughtless, Highgrade, Leisure System, Sleaze Records, Resopal Schallware, Get Physical, Freerange and more. While remix work for legendary producers New Order and Booka Shade have earned respect and admiration from peers and fans alike. His original productions and remixes have seen him playing shows alongside Richie Hawtin, Green Velvet, Jeff Mills, Seth Troxler, Abe Duque, Jesse Rose, Dixon, Sebo K, M.A.N.D.Y, Ewan Pearson, Justin Martin, Martin Buttrich and Adam Beyer, as well as legendary gatherings like Detroit’s own Movement Festival to EXIT festival in Serbia, including reoccurring appearances at Berlin’s legendary clubs Berghain, Weekend, Panoramabar and Tresor. Well loved and highly acclaimed for his dynamically personal take on techno and house, Deepchild’s passion for exploration of the form precedes him – reflected by an irrepressible fanbase and glowing critical praise.
2013 sees the launch of his new online radio podcast series, Diversions, brand-new releases and shows all around the globe.
“Clinically, surgically sharp, yet always of a complete rhythmicity, Deepchild smoulders in every sense of the word.” – Big Shot Magazine
