Daniel Bell is one of the few old-school legends of Detroit still at the forefront of electronic music today. Originally influenced by Chicago House and avant-garde composers such as Steve Reich, Bell’s music laid the foundation for what is now known as the “minimalist” approach in house and techno music. After moving to Detroit in 1990, Accelerate Records was created as an outlet for Bell’s music. Recording under the name DBX, the 1994 single “Losing Control” was described by AllMusic as “one of the biggest underground smashes of the decade.” The hypnotically stark compositions released on Accelerate proved to be influential and sent his contemporaries (and copycats) off in a new “less-is-profoundly-more” direction. As well as being active behind the scenes running a distribution company and a record store in Detroit, Bell cofounded the 7th City, Harmonie Park and Elevate record labels. Bell’s releases on Elevate especially have become some of the most sought after records in the collector’s market. In 2000, after the overwhelming success of his first mix cd, “The Button-Down Mind of Daniel Bell” (Resident Advisor awarded it 2nd Best Mix CD of the 00’s”), Bell became the first North American dj to take up permanent residence in Berlin, Germany. While in Berlin, he recorded for several European labels including Logistic, ~scape, Perlon and Tresor, and spent the bulk of his years there on a relentless dj schedule that took him to almost every part of the globe. In 2008, Bell launched his first world tour as a solo live act. Despite the trend toward laptop live shows, Bell travelled with a collection of vintage synths and drum machines. The tour was met with critical acclaim and was awarded Resident Advisor’s Best Live Act of 2008 – “DBX live proved that Bell remains techno’s greatest reducer”
First gig at Club der Visionäre at the age of 18, where she is since then a resident, Janina performed at the most legendary nightclubs of european capitals.
Janina is one of those rare artists that has become a household name by power of her sheer will and talent.
Enthusiastic and obstinate would probably be two good adjectives to describe Janina, a Berlin born & based DJ, who has been above all a pillar of the German electronic underground scene for over twelve years.
After dropping out of school and having bought her first turntables in her teens, Janina built a deep knowledge of electronic music and developed a deep interest in vinyl records, while working at the Berlin DNS Record Store.
Lively and full of curiosity, it became obvious to Janina that she would dedicate her time and energy to music when she discovered the BeatStreet parties and got her first Perlon Records as treasured presents. She first rose to prominence through her active residency at the needs-no-introduction Berlin Club der Visionäre.
It was there she developed her impressive sharp ear, technical skills and an assertive signature style, despite continuously evolving music tastes.
