DTND Crew

Interview
Gary R

We catch up with a few members of the Detuned Transmissions crew to find out what's hot.

2015 was a great year for Detuned Transmissions. At the beginning of the year holding their first UK event in London, then following with the HVAC remixes which found its way into Mixmag as record of the month and also featured in December in The-What's top 10 moments in Drum & Bass for 2015. The year saw the development of ideas and working approaches that have led into 2016 culminating in their next 12", a 4 track EP that promises to be the best work to date. We caught a few moments with some of the crew...

Who are you and what do you do?

I'm Jason oS, one half of DAAT with my good friend Joe Mnemonic. In 2013 we thought it appropriate to start our imprint, Detuned Transmissions or DTND. Since its inception, we have worked closely together with Alexander Foy and Aaron Minerbrook (AKA 4Eyes) to cultivate a free-form format for audio and visuals with the aesthetic of the label and our output rooted in the core concepts of transmission, reception and interception. To date it has been received well with support from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, Rinse FM and the last 12" we put out was awarded record of the month in Mixmag.

What's hot right now?

A few tracks from our next release on Detuned Transmissions were played by Exit Records' Joe Seven on BBC Radio 1, so we're quite pleased with that!

Who are you and what do you do?

I'm Books, a producer and DJ currently living in North London. I love deep music and hopefully this comes across in my productions and DJ sets. I'm lucky enough to be involved with DTND. I'm currently working towards a solo 12", and had the opening track on the HVAC RMXD album last year, which was my remix of 'Sub'.

What's hot right now?

I was recently asked to do the MJAZZ Podcast, which is number 49 in the series. It has been really well received and drew alot of attention to another one of my tracks 'Ensō'.

Who are you and what do you do?

I'm Alexander and I'm allegedly the label manager for Detuned Transmissions, but it's not really true. My roles are closer related to PR, media planning and encouraging artists to follow their vision. So when someone writes a tune about a sex machine and is unsure if it's the kind of thing they should be doing, I wade in and tell them it's the way forward! I also keep the team grounded by regularly taking the piss out of all involved. Outside of immediate DTND stuff, I'm a sucker for any rough and ready music that is true to itself.

What's hot right now?

DTND004 is ready for release, so shortly I'll be focusing on getting it out there on radio and in press. It's probably the best release to date, but I would say that wouldn't I?!
