DJ Stingray [Urban Tribe, Drexciya / Detroit]
Sherard Ingram aka DJ Stingray has been a strong presence in the world of techno for over twenty years. Growing up in Detroit, this school friend and DJ partner of Kenny Dixon Jr. realised his Urban Tribe project in 1991 with the now classic 'Covert Action', a track released on Retroactive's seminal 'Equinox' compilation, a milestone in the city's rich technosoul history. A couple of years later London's Mo'Wax label released his debut album 'The Collapse Of Modern Culture', which featured collaborations with friends and peers such as Anthony 'Shake' Shakir, Moodymann and Carl Craig. His most illustrious work might have been as part of Drexciya's live unit - he was named Stingray by Drexciya's James Stinson. Reppin' Detroit's 313 with masked performances around the world, and three dozen releases - including records on labels like Planet E and Mahogani Music as well as collaborations with Dopplereffekt's Heinrich Mueller (also known as the other half of Drexciya) - Ingram has since turned label head with Micron Audio Detroit to release the work of fresh, upcoming talent from across the globe.

LNS [Freakout Cult, 1080p]
“LNS, released one of the year's most celebrated underground mixes for the website Trushmix. The 90 minutes of choice ambient techno demonstrated Sparrow's digging prowess and ramped up anticipation for original LNS material. In late January, she made good on the hype with the cassette, Maligne Range, a vibed-out half-hour of svelte electro. "Minas," the album's lead single, could be mistaken for a classic Detroit electro tune in the right setting, but its West Coast pedigree shines through via its feathered edges and an effortless demeanor.”

214 [Frustrated Funk, Shipwrec]
“The Seattle-based producer is a long-time player in the electro world going back to his Esemplastic album in 2002. He had something of a renaissance in 2010, when he began releasing in earnest for labels like Touchin' Bass, Frustrated Funk and Car Crash Set. Around the same time, he launched the J.Alvarez alias for more house and techno-oriented material, including a well-received appearance on La Beauté De Negatif earlier this year. “
