With a well-honed ear from early influences of experimental sounds such as Plastikman, Aphex Twin and Orbital, Todd Howard draws inspiration from the connection that stems between Detroit and Berlin. His taste constantly shifts, blurring the lines between deep house, minimal tech, tech house and techno. Favorite artists including Nice7, Franck Roger, Tale of Us, Hector, Daypayk, and Rrose and labels such as Leftroom, Life and Death, Items and Things, Visionquest, Suara, and Stroboscopic Artefacts are regulary featured in his sets.
Since joining kansascitytechno.com in 2009, Todd has increasingly become more active. Locally, he has competed as a finalist in the Wakarusa DJ Winter Classic, played Global Dance Festival KC and was named the Pitch’s 2012 Readers Choice #1 Best Club/Party DJ. He has shared the bill with Chris Liebing and Mark Farina, and played regionally at venues in St. Louis, Chicago and Minneapolis.
Todd has become a cornerstone of kansascitytechno.com and his involvement with kctdc goes beyond the DJ booth. He is one of the primary contributors to the website’s blog and leads the effort on design and procurement of the group’s merchandise.
Recently, Todd’s focus has been on his monthly residency, jux·ta·pose, at the Uptown Arts Bar in midtown KC. Themed around comparison and contrast, the night brings together a wide range of electronic music and has featured talent from Lance DeSardi, Tyrel Williams, Summer (Brendon Collins), Pat Nice, Demencha Mag, Lotus Camp and Disorder Crew.
