About

Jeff Derringer is a producer and performer based in Chicago. He is a resident at Smartbar, Chicago's premiere dance club, and curator of Oktave, an event series that focuses on the world’s best underground techno talent.

In October 2009, the inaugural Oktave event was held in New York City. Soon thereafter, Jeff released his first EP on New York’s Subtrak label. The EP caught the ears of Ali Wells, better known as techno artist Perc, the owner of the UK’s Perc Trax record label. Jeff went on to release his next three EP’s on Perc Trax, leading to international exposure for his productions and the Oktave brand. He has since released records on Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe label and Milan-based M_Rec LTD. This year, Jeff made his European debut at the legendary Berghain nightclub in Berlin, and later brought his blend of hypnotic and steely techno to Ruigoord in Amsterdam.

In November 2010, Jeff held the first Oktave event in Chicago – where the brand and the resident now call home. Since moving to Chicago, Jeff has brought top tier techno to the Windy City, including names like Regis, Luke Slater, Donato Dozzy, Function, Slam, Peter Van Hoesen, Chris Liebing, Tommy Four Seven and many more.

Jeff is also a music technology educator at Chicago’s Columbia College. He teaches the foundations of dance music production, combining a mix of Maschine, Ableton Live, and Logic.

New EPs are lined up for early 2014 release on Prosthetic Pressings and Electric Deluxe.
