Southern California’s Selective Response is what happens when dedication to self-expression and hard work meet an insatiable passion for techno. Although new in name, this 29-year-old swiss army knife’s history tells a different tale.
After a decade in the industry, and success through various outlets, January 1st, 2018 saw the birth of Selective Response, a project focused solely on techno, industrial, EBM, and electro. Through this creative outlet has come success and support from the highest echelons in techno and media. Before even releasing any music, Selective Response had already received airplay on BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM, and Studio Brussel, and become a secret weapon for artists like Amelie Lens, Dax J, Cleric, Gary Beck, and more. Since then, his music has continued to reach the masses through sets through all spectrums of techno, mainstream, and underground.
As one who's always been a DIY-type, 2019 marked the beginning of a string of powerful releases and the birth of his label Crisis Of Man, with support from Perc, I Hate Models, Remco Beekwilder, Fractions, Truncate, etc. In terms of sound, his relentless and punishing brand of techno is unique enough to be instantly recognizable; something that can only be achieved after years of work and refinement paired with a desire to not follow trends. Gratitude is the key factor in all of this and is something Selective Response practices daily. With so much accomplished in such a short time, there is nothing but a bright future ahead of him.
