The third and final week of our Autumn techno onslaught comes from one of Minus’ most talented signings of the last few years – New York’s groovy mofo Ambivalent. “We met when I was organising parties under the Brooklyn Bridge” he recently told us off his and Minus boss Richie Hawtin’s first meeting. “Later on I worked for him. Over time I would occasionally give him some music. I was releasing tracks with my friends on Clink, and then Troy gave a copy of R U OK to Rich. The next day he asked me to release it with Minus.”
Hawtin’s keen ear for talent and hastiness to sign Ambivalent’s music didn’t let him down, with his productions and DJ sets quickly winning him fans across the world and allowing him to be accepted into their burgeoning family with ease. This podcast sums up everything we love about him – sexy, jacking, stripped-back techno with a hell of a groove, some enticing builds, dashes of weirdness, and a surprise ending.
