Space Dimension Controller [ ✈ Belfast / R&S ]
In the year 2257, Planet Earth was invaded by an energy seeking race of aliens known as the Pulsovians, sparking a galactic war that lasted over two years. Sadly, the Pulsovian technology was much more advanced than that of the humans and Earth was lost. The Pulsovians drained the energy from the sun, turning it into a Pulsar. Earth died soon after, leaving the humans no choice but to flee into outer space to find a new home.
For over 75 years the last remnants of mankind lived aboard their escape vessels. It wasn't until the year 2334 that a man named Max Tiraquon discovered a distant planet in Mikrosector-50 of the deep space grid that was suitable for human habitation.
Shortly after the discovery of Mikrosector-50, Max Tiraquon founded the Tiraquon Security Council as the first government of mankind's new home. A man known as Mr. 8040 was made the Deputy Space Dimension Controller of the council.
By day, Mr. 8040 and Max Tiraquon defend the boundaries of the security barrier from astro bandits and rebels who seek to destroy the barrier and free the citizens of Mikrosector-50.
By night, Mr. 8040 lives a secret life… Travelling outside the barrier into deep space where no radar can detect him, Mr. 8040 creates music using ancient earth technologies alone in his Electropod.
When ready he ventures deeper into space to uncharted colonies where music is accepted. He plays in illegal night clubs on distant moons and alien proto-spheres. When asked to describe his music, Mr. 8040 doesn't really have much to say. The only way to describe it is...
Policy is a life-long musician, having studied piano, flute, and guitar. After pursuing a predictable professional degree path in New York City, Policy quit the rat race to make movies, co-directing and co-writing two feature-length films. Policy’s music is inseparable from his love of movies and soundtracks. After trying unsuccessfully to obtain rights to an Aphex Twin track for his first film, Policy decided to create his own “inspired” version, beginning his late-night electronic beat obsession. Policy's sound is a deeply American one, combining an outsider, immigrant perspective with drum machine dreams to create something fresh and classic at once.
The monthly Turrbotax parties have become a staple in New York’s underground electronic music scene, catering to dancers looking for a different club experience. At the head of the party/label, along with Rem Koolhaus is cofounder and resident DJ, Contakt. Throughout the years, the label heads have refined their parties to ban photography and withhold lineup information to remind people that, “Turrbotax is not an indie-rock concert; it’s a loud, banging, sweaty dance party.” With his far-reaching collection of electronic music drawing from UK influences, classic New York garage, Chicago house, and Detroit techno, he’s bound to curate a set that will get the party bumping.
