“An interdimensional transmission from 2000.
Carlos Souffront comes from the same generation of Detroit selectors as Patrick Russell, Mike Servito and the Interdimensional Transmissions crew behind No Way Back. Raised on a diet of homegrown dance music, fed through underground parties and astoundingly good radio programming, they emerged with an elastic definition of techno and a fearlessness DJ style. While Souffront’s peers moved away to places like New York or burrowed deeper into the Detroit underground, he ended up in San Francisco, where he’s led a kind of double-life as a cheese monger. House and techno connoisseurs in the US—particularly those in striking distance of parties thrown by The Bunker, where Souffront has played increasingly often—have long known he’s a supreme talent with a deep and varied record bag. This summer, though, Europe will get a taste when he makes a swing through Panorama Bar, Dekmantel Festival and Zoo Project in Ibiza.
For the uninitiated, RA.474 is a window into Souffront’s classic style—quite literally. As he explained to us over email, this mix dates back over a decade to his radio show on Ann Arbor’s WCBN and features “all old tracks that I still love and play today.””
