soundscape saturday :: ade fenton

Along a month ago, I was listening to the past podcast from Electronic Explorations and heard what seemed to be the newest, fresh mix from a gentleman name Ade Fenton.  The mix held on to my industrial vein the whole journey and carries with me as a reminder that my roots are still as torn and  chaotic as they are smooth and warm.  You can find this mix located on the download Rob Booth with Ade Fenton.  If you enjoy an edge with your beat, this one is a keeper.  

"Ade Fenton has been making music for the last 12 years, establishing himself as a respected record producer and remixer for artists including Gary Numan, Slash, IAMX, Niki Gravino, Parralox and Motor.  He has amassed over 30 EPs and remixes on his own techno labels Advanced and Perverter, as well as releases on some of the worlds leading techno imprints such as Potential, Ground, Impact Mechanics, Gynoid, IF?, Primate and Materials.  In 2006, he coproduced and coengineered Gary Numan’s Jagged album, released to huge critical acclaim and reaching number three in the BBC indie chart.  Fenton released his debut artist album Artificial Perfect on his industrial electronic label Submission in 2007, securing a UK Top 75 chart single with The Leather Sea and regular plays of the spectacular video for his single Healing on MTV2, then in 2008 he once again teamed up with Gary Numan for a new double release Jagged Edge.   The pair are currently in the studio producing two brand new albums Dead Son Rising and Splinter, both set for release in 2011.  Ade is a busy international techno dj with a schedule that has taken him across the globe.  He has regularly appeared on BBC Radio One, recording dj sets for their 'Live At Maida Vale', Mary Anne Hobbs programmes, and has been resident DJ at the United Kingdom's leading techno club Atomic Jam for over 10 years."
