Few DJs in the international EDM underground have enjoyed as much hype
in the last couple years as Seth Troxler. As part of a growing
contingent of Detroit-raised expatriate artists living and working in
Berlin -- including Ryan Crosson and Shaun Reeves
-- Troxler has straddled the two techno capitals of the world while
garnering enough international acclaim to get ranked among the Top 10
DJs in the world by Resident Advisor in 2010.
Troxler and esteemed producer pal Lee Curtiss used to throw the legendary Tesh Club parties in
Detroit in the mid-'00s, and as Visionquest (along with Ryan Crosson) they
currently host the beloved Need I Say More afterhours during Detroit's Electronic
Festival each year. Releases on touchstone labels like Spectral Sound, Crosstown
Rebels and Wolf + Lamb reveal Troxler's irreverent experimental flair in
the studio, while never straying far from a brooding sensuality and
essential body-jacking groove that can command any dancefloor.
Troxler is certainly no stranger to Miami, having graced the decks at
memorable past WMC parties like Sunday School for Degenerates and Get
Lost at the Electric Pickle, where he'll be returning on Friday
night to throw down an exclusive performance with PL0T. Summer 2010 has seen
Troxler jump onboard a residence at the infamous Circo Loco at
club DC10 in Ibiza, so surely we can expect a taste of the hottest jams currently rocking the island during Friday's set.
