UUN (LIVE) (WORLDWIDE)
Coming up in the music scene of Kansas City and currently residing in Detroit, Uun developed his interest in the fringes of sound as a guitarist in multiple bands before turning his focus to techno in 2012. Both his early work as a band member and his current output as a techno performer share a common exploration of darkness both in mood and in execution. Hard Wax described Uun's sound as a "straight ahead techno juggernaut."
Although he has been producing and performing since 2012, Uun’s profile has recently risen substantially, with releases on Mord, Soma, and Modularz. Uun’s steady output of productions have long been included in many substantial dj sets, with the most noteworthy being Blawan’s BBC Essentials mix and Ectomorph’s Resident Advisor podcast.
As well as releasing on many noteworthy labels, he also has his own imprint to showcase the scope of his productions. Titled Ego Death, the label explores themes of existentialism, duality, and what it means to be an artist in the modern era. Now on it's fifth vinyl release, each strives to create a unique and varied atmosphere. His live performance is an extension of this ethos. In this format Uun constructs thousands of studio hours into a powerful contained experience. Each outing can greatly differ as new elements are always added. He has brought this unique approach to the first two USA based Mord showcases, as well as choice bookings at Griessmuhle and Berlin's legendary fetish night Gegen.
He is also involved in the label and event series Modern Cathedrals; known for their eerie broken beat techno and Eden events. While started as a fully Detroit operation, it is now hosting events abroad, the first of which was in Berlin. Previous performers at Eden events include Svreca, Alien Rain, Veronica Vasicka, Vatican Shadow, Adriana Lopez, Xhin, Phase Fatale, Regis, and many more.
