The Lab, NRK's mix series devoted to the world's most cutting edge DJs and forward thinking sounds, returns this week with an instalment compiled and mixed by undoubtedly one of the scene's most talented and brightest stars.
Hailing from the suburbs of Detroit, Seth Troxler has made an incredible journey over the last few years, from the local DJ spots at Detroit's The Works club and behind the counter service at the famous Melodies & Memories record store, to the most top drawer nights and clubs across the world, such as Fabric, Panorama Bar, DC10, The Rex et al. With a youthful enthusiasm and leftfield charm, Seth has become a huge favourite of clubbers and party freaks, so much so that he was voted the 3rd most popular DJ in Resident Advisor's poll for 2010. But behind the public perception of Troxler, he is seriously dedicated and passionate about quality underground electronic music, taking giant leaps with his latest Visionquest project, a collective of friends and fellow artists such as Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtis. His productions and collaborations with esteemed artists like Deetron, Matthew Dear and Tiefschwarz, and labels like Crosstown Rebels, Circus Company, Wolf & Lamb and Wagon Repair show an artist deeply in tune with the cutting edge electronic music that endeavours to push the envelopes of dance music.
Seth Troxler - The Lab 03 is out now on 2CD (Mixed), 2CD (DJ friendly Unmixed), digital album and various 12" vinyl samplers.
