Lenny Dee Is A Native Of New York
Producer / DJ / Label Owner Lenny Dee is one of NYC’s earliest techno and house pioneers. He produced classic UK chart-hitting techno with Frankie Bones (as Looney Tunes), Victor Simonelli (for Nu Groove and Def Mix) and Tommy Musto – including their ‘Fallout’ track – now heard on the video game ‘Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’.
Early on, Lenny worked at Skyline Studios (at the time home of Nile Rodgers), and at Arthur Baker’s Shakedown Studio’s on productions for New order, Brooklyn Funk Essentials, and Al Jarreau among others. At the end of the ‘80s, he attacked Europe with the then new sound of Techno and in 1991 launched Industrial Strength Records, a label that’s included music from Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Manu Le Malin, Cirilo, Zenith, John Selway, Daft Punk, Casper Pound, Unexist, DOA and many more.
Lenny has also written and produced hundreds of tracks on labels such as 4th floor, Warner Bros, Strictly Rhythm, R&S, Music Man, Atlantic Records, Arista, XL Recordings, Gigilo, A&M Records, Third Movement, ID &T and Stay Up Forever. As well as remixes for Atlantic Records, Sven Vath and chart topping hits in Holland and Italy – including projects with Italy’s superstar DJ Moella from RadioDeeJay FM.
Lenny’s first residency was at the local roller disco Roll-A-Palace in Brooklyn NY at the age of 17 and he has DJed all over the world at most of the biggest parties including MayDay, Love Parade, Woodstock, Tribal Gathering, Helter Skelter, Rezerection, Energy, Thunderdome, the Jane's Addiction Reunion Tour & the list goes on.
Lenny’s musical accomplishments range wide, having recently engineered 3 remixes on the Wu Tang Clan album Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Vol. 2: Enter The Dubstep, a remix for Ali King’s new hit feat. Def Jam’s Fabolous and recently mixed the soundtrack for a Runway Show at New York’s Fashion Week.
Its no wonder Lenny was named Number One ‘Hard DJ’ by Mixmag and has twice been awarded the accolade of Best Worldwide Techno DJ by the Scottish Dance Music Awards & Frontpage Magazine.
Generating chaos and expressing the definition of hard & dark, the Stormtrooper sound is a heavy statement. As one of the producers continuing to release at the infamous Industrial Strength imprint, Peter Nitschke has gained respect fast.
Stormtrooper is a name you should know if you are into hard electronic music. Starting off in 1997 with productions on an Amiga 500 and gigs at small parties in Munich his sound evolved fast, and soon he was one of the most known hardcore acts in South Germany. After some years around he drew the attention of one of hardcore's godfathers, none other than Lenny Dee, and got signed to Industrial Strength with his massive hit "Todesvögel".
Collaborations with famous artists like The Speed Freak, Daisy and Amok followed. With releases on well known labels as Artillery, Rebelscum, Deathchant, and countless others his style ranges from slow heavy pounding Techno and Industrial to broken beats and uptempo Hardcore. He is also know for his hardtechno productions under the name "X-Tension" (together with Thomas Nordmann), his acid trax as "Alice D.", Breakcore stuff as "German Rhythm Disaster" and EBM Techno as "PN-X-TG" (together with Petrabot).
Loving to push the crowd to their limits, with constantly increasing speed during his sets, Stormtrooper already prooved at parties like Thunderdome, Mayday, Energy, Nature One and Defqon (to name just a few), that his style is unique.
A ancient work in progress who's never once even considered purchasing fake facebook likes… To Be Continued….
Dep Affect has been unsettling dance floors since 1999, playing an uncompromising mix of hardtechno and industrial hardcore. With numerous releases on The Third Movement, Industrial Strength Records and recently a collaboration with The Outside Agency on Genosha; Dep Affect continues to explore the hardcore terrain collecting devastating kicks, deep atmospherics and brain twisting sounds along the way.
Peter Nitschke, better known as Stormtrooper, is doing hard electronic music since 1998 now. In 2013 it is time to expand and officially present his soft side, named Peter Sturm. After some years around as the Electro-Duo PN-X-TG, with releases on Things to come (The Horrorist's label), Zero Point Five and Leveltrauma Audio, he is now going solo. The sound can be best described as Funkyminimalpercussiveelectropoptechhouse, or just - Techno. No need for style bounderies. Listen for yourself, and you will hear.
