Press Info:
Rene Wise has previously released on some of the finest Techno labels out there such as Rødhåd’s WSNWG, Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver and Dustin Zahn’s Enemy Records. Now he finally gets round to another… James Ruskin’s Blueprint.

Rene Wise’s approach to writing music and DJing fuses together as one concept; tapping into primal human instinct via rhythm and groove. Wise portrays a deep sense of knowledge and maturity in his sound, devising atmospheric soundscapes with a raw but modern touch, captivating the listener from beginning to end. His sets demonstrate this to full effect, consistently maintaining a powerful sonic trademark whilst possessing the innate ability to create hip-shaking poly-rhythms and multi-deck layers.

Before discovering the world of electronic music, Wise came from a background of drum and percussion which was guided by his Iranian father who was a professional drummer. This influence plays a huge part in shaping the foundation of techno that he crafts.

Wise’s “quality over quantity” mindset has seen him become a mainstay on influential labels such as Mote-Evolver, WSNWG and Beard Man which has led him to work with some of the most respected names in the industry. His pure but passionate approach to music has given him the honour of gracing institutions such as Berghain and fabric and earned him a residency at the esteemed underground Eerste Communie parties hailing from The Netherlands.

Press Info:
Blueprint welcomes Token’s Kr!z to the label with his second ever solo EP.

Kr!z, hailing from Ghent (Belgium) has always had a strong empathy for the gloomier, dark, raw sound of techno with artists like Jeff Mills, Surgeon and James Ruskin playing a major influence in the 90’s, helping him to define his musical taste and develop his own identity in the Techno scene. As a respected and established figure in Belgium for almost two decades, his DJ schedule takes him all over the world. In 2007 he launched his own label, Token, which he’s rapidly established as a firm fixture with its timeless and powerful sound.

In 2019 he released his debut solo EP ‘Mantra’ on Token, and with James Ruskin being a big supporter we now come full circle with the release of his ‘Neutrino EP’ on Ruskin’s own Blueprint.

Press Info:
The next EP in Blueprint’s 25th birthday series sees another collaboration for label head, James Ruskin. Following EPs alongside both Truncate and Mark Broom, this time Ruskin teams up with DVS1 for ‘Chapter One’.

Back in 2016 the label was celebrating its 20th anniversary and the release of the ‘Structures and Solutions’ compilation which featured their track, ‘Page 1’. As one of the highlights of the compilation, it received multiple plays on BBC Radio 1 and a place in Resident Advisor’s Top 50 Most Charted tracks during its month of release.

Taking the hugely atmospheric ‘Page 1’ as their starting point, they continue with 3 more fully immersive techno “pages” to create this full EP.

James Ruskin will be joined by DVS1 at the 25 Years of Blueprint night at fabric on Saturday 30 October, alongside Regis, GiGi FM, dBridge presents Black Electric (Live), Machine Woman, Skee Mask, Zenker Brothers and Billy Allen.

Press Info:
Dustin Zahn makes his Blueprint Records debut in September as James Ruskin’s label continues to celebrate 25 years at the forefront of Techno.

Since 1998, Dustin Zahn’s work has put his career on a steady ascent. Along the way, he has gained years of experience and unrivalled musical diversity as both a producer and performer, earning him respect among techno and house legends, purists, and contemporary DJs. He performs regularly around the world and his DJ sets are much like his releases. “I like it dark enough for the boys, but groovy enough for the girls” says Zahn. With a preference for marathon sets and his laid-back approach to life and music, he seamlessly traverses through various genres to create a unique, hypnotic vibe. As a producer, his releases on labels such as Drumcode, Rekids, and CLR have brought him international success. And his remixes for the likes of Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Green Velvet, Dubfire, Nic Fancuilli, Mark Broom, Joel Mull and more have helped catapult him into the collections of DJs everywhere.

Despite his busy release schedule, he still finds time to own and operate Enemy Records, founded in 2004, which focuses on the same late-night hypnotic techno that you’ll often find in his DJ sets. Much like his ‘Hand Over Control’ EP for Blueprint which features four new tracks of deep dance floor techno, available from 3rd September.

Press Info:
Blueprint continues to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021 and to follow James Ruskin’s ‘Shortcut’ EP (BP058) and ‘Sketch’ (BP059), which saw Ruskin team up with Truncate for the first time, he now returns to one of his regular cohorts and fellow UK techno luminary, Mark Broom with the follow-up to their 2020 release, ‘Basement Jams’.

‘Basement Jams 2’ is comprised of five new slices of scorching techno from this distinguished duo, who in the past have also brought us dark experimentalism as The Fear Ratio and inspired hip-hop as Deadhand. Now returning to their techno roots, ‘Basement Jams 2’ is primed with dance floor (not long now!) destroyers.

Following this release, there’s more to come with a James Ruskin and DVS1 EP in July and a special BP25 compilation later this year.
