BIO

With a musical history and catalogue that spans back to the early 90s, Titonton Duvante is one of those true school artists whose talent has continually shone through with a certain style and finesse that few come close to, let alone equal. Straddling the line between the outer reaches of Motorcity sounds and the sheer force of his own musical imagination, his sound very much lives in its own sphere: having cut his teeth with releases on Metamorphic, 7th City, Palette, Environ, Planet E along with his own imprint Residual Recordings.  The co-creator of the seminal techno band Body Release (alongside Todd Sines, Charles Noel and Mike Szewczyk), he has continued his path through a multifaceted career as a composer, recording artist, producer, remixer, record label owner, event promoter and DJ, continually striving to evolve creatively. As a DJ, he has always been known for blurring the boundaries of electronic music genres as he seeks to deconstruct, blend and rebuild beats through what can only be described as a unique brand of turntablism - having exported his extraordinary style and energy to clubs around the world from Detroit and San Francisco to Berlin, London, Paris, Sao Paulo, Tokyo and beyond. In 2015, he celebrated 20 years of releasing vinyl.
