Two actors from a different world became the very souls to push your buttons. Dance floor instigators, Detroit late night renegades...many call them by their name: ATAXIA
The duo, comprised of cyber punks Ted Krisko & Eric Ricker, deliver their take on Detroit Techno with an acid tinge on their latest record, “The Supertouch EP” on Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It label. Out just in time for summer 2017 on July 7th, this collection of heat is their full follow-up to their previous smash appearance on “The Acid EP” for Seth’s label in 2016. Tunes from their new record were showcased and very well received by a frenzied, energized crowd at Movement 2017, which featured the debut of ATAXIA’s new live PA!
2017 has been the production pair’s busiest year yet in the creative department. After kicking it off with their much anticipated release for Leftroom Records, the notorious “Rickaverse EP” was their second appearance for Matt Tolfrey’s family of labels. ATAXIA immediately answered back with their “Acid Overlook EP” on the legendary Nervous Records, featuring a blow away collaboration with the incredible Terrence Parker & Merachka! A total chart topper, the EP made it into many crates, starting the year off with a lesson in Detroit acid house and techno for the dance floor.
Additionally, ATAXIA’s members are deeply involved in Detroit’s most prominent dance music venues. They have held down an 8 year DJ residency at TV Lounge, and make regular appearances at The Marble Bar, where Krisko has been Talent Booker since 2016. Under his guise, Marble Bar has notably featured the Detroit debut performances from Minilogue, Prins Thomas, Young Marco, Juju & Jordash, as well as many nights featuring colleagues from Detroit, including Delano Smith, Juan Atkins, Matthew Dear, Luke Hess & Visionquest as guests.
No strangers to juggling projects, the group also maintains a steady presence in radio on the web, hosting Paxahau Radio with the team behind Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival, as well as running ATAXIA’s monthly program, RADIO NIGHT MACHINES on www.ProtonRadio.com - every 4th Sunday at 10:00pm EST!
In this world, it is best to let the music do the talking. Tune in, tune out...
