SETH TROXLER (Crosstown Rebels / Visionquest / wolf + lamb)

 We are looking forward to welcoming back one of the most iconic/charismatic DJs on the circuit, the man voted #2 in Resident Advisor's 'Top DJs of 2011' poll - the utterly mesmerising and sometimes enigmatic SETH TROXLER.

"...boys want to be him, girls want to be with him."

Through a leaking bodily cavity resembling the pork found in Chinese restaurants, Satan shat out a crystal beaming with glowing red embers. This crystal matured into the fetus of Seth Troxler. Seth was placed on earth as a weeping fetus, the sound of inevitability. As he grew, his ancestral roots took on a magnetic channeling power, more than his feeble mind could ever consciously fathom. As a result, he became capable of creating some of the world's finest and most intuitive dance cuts, including releases and remixes on Crosstown Rebels, M_nus, Bpitch Control, Leftroom, Spectral, Wagon Repair & wolf + lamb.

Seth's DJ career started in Detroit in 2002 at the age of 16 as a frequent Dj at Detroit club The Works and as a clerk at Detroit's famous Melodies and Memories record store. With these experiences Seth gained a preternatural understanding of rave, and dance music history, that now allows him to conjours up mixes and tracks like Botticelli conjoured his Venus. Whether it's at Panorama Bar, Watergate, Robert Johnson or Fabric, Seth will rock the crowd like no other. Alongside his friends Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss; Seth Troxler has formed 'Visionquest' - the most innovative and excitingnew breed of DJ/producers to come out of the city of Detroit in a generation.

His influences include the chirping of crickets, the whirring of space ships, and the sweet sounds of whistling voodoo magic. However, Seth draws the majority of his inspiration from Robert Downey Jr., and the idea of releasing the shackles that bind Downey so he can finally do heroin in peace. Also seth enjoys cooking, long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners.
