A bit on Both Guests :
K – Hand aka Kelli Hand – Detroit ( Acacia Records , Third Ear , Distance , Studio !K7 )
A history charting the rise of electronic music from Detroit will be incomplete without any mention of Kelli Hand .
Kelli Hand has consistently and militantly represented the city & it’s music for a long long time .
With over 350 releases & over 350 appearances , it looks like Kelli is here to stay .
In the electronic music community, few DJs and producers have proven real staying power. Some explode onto the scene then fade into obscurity. Kelli Hand, or simply “K Hand,” continues to maintain as a true player throughout from her now two-decade career.
Hand’s exposure to early Detroit electronic music came via radio mix shows, resident DJ in Detroit for over two years, and recommendations from friends. She was part of the community that birthed techno and experienced the house scene firsthand, frequenting New York spots during the “Paradise Garage” era.
Hand began DJing and producing tracks, and was the first women attempting to break into the male-dominated genre worldwide, secures gigs and performances having audiences wanting more. Her ability to move seamlessly from house to techno awes many securing her DJ status.
Today more success came Hand’s way as a producer and remixer. From the Ananda Project to remixes for the excellent Norma Jean Bell her own releases, producing countless tracks of techno and house music . The formation of her label, Acacia Records (House), Gorsch Detroit (Techno), broke new ground, and the labels remains one of the few labels headed by a woman. The beauty of Kelli Hand is that she refuses to settle for anything less than the best.
On this occasion Kelli will be schooling us in all things Detroit , New York & Chicago House !!!! .
The people @ the excellent Gridface blog recently got Kelli on the phone and put together a great interview ahead of an appearance from her @ this year’s Detroit Electronic Music Festival :http://www.gridface.com/features/k-hand.html

Fred P Aka Black Jazz Consortium – New York ( Soul People Music , Underground Quality )
Fred P has truly captivated the house fraternity of late with his deep as the ocean house cuts on his very own Soul People Music as well as on Underground Quality . The word deep has recently been used to a point of overkill but one man that word applies to in his character as well as the music he makes is Fred . Fred is no new comer either . he has been carving and working on music for the past 20 years . so there is knowledge and skill there !!! .
Fred , Jus Ed , Dj Qu & Levon Vincent became much more than just New York dj’s and producers . they truly captivated and captured audiences from all over the place with their highly intoxicating take on house music .
articles and heavy features came from the likes of Resident Advisor , Xlr8 and many more but Fred & the rest of the crew remain focused and truly humble . 2010 Looks like it will be a rich year for Fred what with ace releases already garnering high praise on Soul People alongside Move D & Steve Oh . Contribution on Laid . Fred is also constantly on the road with gigs in Berlin , New York , Belgrade , Frankfurt , London Ireland , Philly , Miami Winter Music Conference 2010 For Ra .e.t.c. & satisfied audiences and promoters all around and more release planned for this year only the sky is the limit for this great master builder .
