“so many questions have been made
about this new dance craze, called acid
what people really want to know
is how the story, all goes, about acid…
this is acid
i’m gonna give you acid”
REDUX is bringing you another evening of non-stop grooves. This time bringing in Chicago’s Jarvi and Father of Two from Cleveland.
JARVI // chicago (nbfc, haus of diesel)
Jarvi – aka Acid Daddy – is a representative for the non-binary gender house and techno scene. A member of Chicago’s Naughty Bad Fun Collective, resident at Smart Bar for Planet Chicago (along with Sassmouth and Pat Bosman), and can be found on the dance floor jacking to proper beats. Hailing from Metro Detroit, they were introduced to the music at ayoung age. DJing has always been a dream for Jarvi and in 2013, with the help of mentor Sassmouth, that dream became a reality. Jarvi is additionally curator of the freaky queer club party, Acid Daddy’s Haus of Diesel at Berlin Nightclub in Boystown.
FATHER OF TWO // cleveland (in training)
Father of Two is a co-founder and resident at Cleveland’s queer electronic music monthly, In Training. During his set he draws you in deep, bringing raw, unadultered energy. He works to provide a decentralized approach where he connects the dots for regional dance music and styles from further abroad. Through In Training there is a set intention for autonomous safe living for oppressed and marginalized people regarding gender, sexuality, race, class and ability.

Fresh into the New Year, Sequencer and Redux join efforts to present an evening of no holds barred techno.
ISRAEL VINES // los angeles (borrowed language, eye teeth)
For over two decades, Israel Vines has challenged and embraced listeners by recontextualizing sounds from a wide range of genres and eras. A product of the ’90s rave scene in the US midwest, Vines’ early interest in industrial and left-leaning electronic music readily merged with his exposure to Chicago house and Detroit techno, and that mix of influences is felt in his DJ sets and productions.
Despite years of dedication to DJing, Los Angeles-based Vines remained relatively unknown until he launched his now-retired label, Borrowed Language, in 2010. Through his collaborations with Jeff Pietro, he honed his sound prior to releasing his own solo material on respected labels such as Cult Figures and Semantica, while stepping into the world of remixing for the likes of Erika, Makaton, and Stave. Now, he has found a more permanent home on the Eye Teeth imprint — an offshoot of Detroit’s long-running Interdimensional Transmissions label, where he released the well-received (and regularly caned) WWKD EP. Vines has also released collaborative material with Chicago’s Kit Geary under the KGIV guise on Horizontal Ground, with another EP forthcoming on Eye Teeth.
KAMAL NAEEM // berlin (blank slate)
Berlin-based Kamal Naeem is the owner of Blank Slate, an independent record label devoted to providing a range of musical voices, from techno to afrobeat. He has been a music lover ever since his mother blared Nausat Fateh Ali Khan, his father introduced him to Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and he listened to Louis Armstrong’s rendition of Disney songs. Established in 2012, Blank Slate was founded during his time in Ithaca, NY and is continuously putting out heavy hitting records.
