Detroit Metro Times and Real Detroit/Mixworks 20/20 Award-winning international Detroit Techno DJ and electronic musician born and raised in the 313 (beware of 248s and 734s aka suburbanites trying to claim the 313). I left Detroit for good back in 2004 and now I'm having the time of my life living in the great cities of Chicago and Berlin and touring around the world playing hard electronic beats strictly for those who know. Known aliases: DJ T-1000, X-313, TXC, Signal to Noise Ratio, Hardsignal, Detroitrocketscience, The Neon Sex Fiend, The Inside and more. I'm perhaps best known worldwide for my Tresor Berlin album "Progress." First-ever UR "Assault DJ" and first graduate of the UR techno DJ boot camp. Early alliance with Submerge and Mad Mike (who along with Jeff Mills got me started in the techno business). Owner of the Generator label (which put out the first Marco Passarani and Sean Deason records), as well as Pure Sonik Records and my CD-only, lowtempo label xfive. I also did a label a long time ago called Technika and discovered the Black industrial band Code Industry, who went on to sign with Antler-Subway, Belgium. I am also a former radio personality, hosting Detroit's first-ever EBM/electronic music program "Fast Forward" for five years on WDET-FM 101.9. My show made local legends out of many of the early Detroit Techno artists and exposed urban Detroit to Industrial/EBM and other styles of electronic music. Yes, I have a nice voice. Teamed with Pop Culture Media to help produce the successful (no matter what anybody says) 2002 edition of the DEMF, which culminated in record-breaking attendance and Dave Clarke's triumphant return to America among other musical highlights. I have been featured and quoted in such books as "The Rough Guide to Techno," "Techno Rebels," "Beats," "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life," "Djax-Up-Beats: The Power of the Underground," "Localizer 1.0", and Japan's "Techno: Black Machine Music and Galactic Soul," and "Techno Disc Guide." I am also featured in the films "High Tech Soul," "Tresor: The Vault," and had a 2007 feature in "Slices" DVD magazine. My style/fashion icons in electronic music are the super-cool Stacey Pullen and Troy Pierce. I wish I looked like them! TRUE ROCK STARS! I used to play in a live Darkwave/EBM band backing up LadyParasyte. The live unit broke up (it is now strictly a studio project without me in it), but I hope to return with a new live (non-techno) show in 2010. Right now, I am getting back in the remix game, doing some mixes for Twonz and Orlando Voorn. As an illustrator, I was the first and only Detroit talent to combine art, electronic music and DJing. I started out doing artwork for Transmat, then I went on to create the signature look of Holland-based Djax-Up-Beats on hundreds of releases. I have also done illustrations and designs for Astralwerks, +8, KMS, Submerge, New Religion, Seventh Sign, AW Recordings, and many other labels. I've also put out my own indie comic books like JOHNNY GAMBIT, GENERATOR COMICS, and THE SEXY ADVENTURES OF ORIETTA ST. CLOUD. In 2005, I began showing in galleries. I've since had successful shows at the Open Door Gallery and the No Friction Cafe (Chicago), Le Fromager Gallery/Restaurant (Paris), the Crewest Gallery (Los Angeles), and Galerie Zero (Berlin). I've also done a number of private commissions for clients in the UK, USA, and the Netherlands. I'm always taking new art projects, message me!
