Kyle Geiger / Techno / Drumcode / 00:30(60 min.)
Named in DJ Mag as the “breakthrough DJ of 2008″ by Adam Beyer, the last year has proven to be nothing short of that title for Kyle Geiger. Within the first year of his premier vinyl release, Kyle has achieved international notoriety, a feat that many never accomplish in their entire career as a DJ/producer. Having played literally all over America, the Indiana-based producer is set to storm the international scene. With two European tours under his belt already, including two performances at the widely touted Berghain in Berlin (Voted by ResidentAdvisor.net as the 1 club in the world), rounded off with a stop at the Dance Valley festival in Amsterdam this summer, Kyle is certainly prepared for the big things 2009 is already promising to bring.
Kyle’s quick rise in the international dance scene is due to both his production prowess, and his explosive decks and effects DJ sets that bridge the divide between techno and minimal. Kyle is not a producer first, DJ second, but chooses to look at both aspects of DJ and production as a whole; one is not complete without the other.
Originally inspired by the harder, percussive stylings of late 90’s Swedish techno featured on seminal labels like Drumcode and Code Red, Kyle has witnessed the evolution of the genre as it morphed into a slower, groove based sound. Still loving the energy and power of the earlier phases of techno while embracing the genre’s changes, Kyle has refined his productions and DJ sets into what very well may be a new breed of techno that pushes things forward for the next generation of techno to come.
Initially urged on by long time friends and minimal techno veterans JPLS and Skoozbot, a demo made it to Drumcode label manager Adam Beyer who was on the hunt for what he describes as a “modern techno sound”. Beyer immediately put Kyle’s tracks to the test at the 2007 Winter Music Conference and invited him onboard as a Drumcode artist. With two highly regarded releases on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label, remixes for Droid Recordings, Renovatio and MB Elektronics, and licensed tracks for the legendary Music Man and Harthouse labels’ mix compilations, the future is proving to be a very promising place for Kyle Geiger as he continues to take his widely recognized DJ set around the world and to the next level.

DJ Seth Nichols / Techno / lovevinylrecords.com / 05:00(60 min.)
Seth is a long time electronic music enthusiast, as he began to listen to EDM at the ripe age of 12 in 1992. He religiously listened to the late Saturday night radio show �97 extra beats� on Cincinnati�s 97X �the future of rock n roll�. He often taped the show for future listening and exploration into this new, weird sound. This was the weekly tradition of Seth and his long time friend John Mack, and was their own little secret all the way through high school as they never really found others who enjoyed electronic music. What started as a shared love of music with a friend became the beginning of the path that has taken Seth to where he is today.
Not until 1999 did Seth discover a place outside of his cd player that electronic music could be heard and enjoyed. Seth was drawn into the rave scene with a vengeance. Shortly after the �Summer of 99� Seth and John invested in their first dj setup consisting of 2 Gemini direct drive turntables and a Gemini mixer. (premium equipment right out the gate!) This then led to purchasing records mainly from eBay and other on-line record stores as they were in a small college town in Ohio (Springfield � Wittenberg University). From the purchasing of many different record lots on eBay they eventually began reselling records they didn�t fancy. They started turning profits which eventually led to the birth of Evolving Records in 2001.
Seth and John left college and headed off to Indianapolis to open up a record store. The record store ran fairly successfully up to 2006 when it was shutdown and moved on-line. Today it is run solely by Seth under the name of �Love Vinyl Records�, and is doing quite well.
Throughout the time that the record store was open, the DJ career of Seth began to take shape. Seth has opened for numerous big name DJs who came through Indianapolis since 2002 and a host of cities around the US from Jacksonville, Las Vegas, Chicago, Detroit, Louisville, and more. Seth has also had 2 club residencies in Indianapolis : Eden Nightclub in Broadripple in 03-04 and Therapy Nightclub from 06-present.
