Although his name has been synonymous for some time with Detroit and more particularly the quality strains of house and techno emitted by the Spectral Sound label, some will be surprised that Ryan Elliott’s recent EP for Ostgut-Ton is his first proper release. Having previously turned out a few edits and remixes, even appearing with his own original track “Abatis” on the Ostgut compilation Fünf, Elliott’s main area of focus has been as A&R man for Spectral Sound and as DJ ambassador for the Detroit based label. With a reputation for impeccable DJ sets and a demanding schedule, Elliott left Detroit for its European simpatico city of Berlin eighteen months ago, finding a surrogate home in the fold of the Ostgut crew. Showing just why he is such a coveted name to have on your club bill, Elliott supplied our exclusive 82nd LWE podcast, a hot mix of raw, bristling techno that encompasses the works of his contemporaries, unreleased tracks and some vintage moments in techno.
