“Yes, I’d like to sign this!” is the first reaction the nu-breed techno music duo ‘On/Off’ received from one of UK’s leading techno dj’s and producers Alan Fitzpatrick
. The dangerously sounding “Ambush” is the main track of the first release by this new and exciting new DJ and live-act hailing from the Netherlands. Holland has been the breeding place for many internationally renowned techno artists such as Secret Cinema, Egbert, Steve Rachmad, Joris Voorn, Michel De Hey and Remy to name a few.
The sound that On/Off represents can simply be described as dance floor minded, throbbing techno music. Influenced and inspired by legends such as Dave Clarke, Adam Beyer, Carl Cox and Chris Liebing they began collaboration on various projects forging their own unique sound in the progress.
On stage, On/Off combine their own tracks and arrangements with catchy loops and a wide variety of soundscapes. Doing this live, it allows them to create something unique every time they perform. There is no clear set of rules, just inspiration of the moment and the people on the dancefloor.
“Ambush” and “Sticky Fingers” are out now on Fitzpatrick’s personal imprint ‘8 Sided Dice Records’. The follow up to this release – a whopping 3 tracker ep - is scheduled in may. Furthermore they signey signed an EP to Rotterdam based Gem Records, which is the imprint of the legendary Dutch “Secret Cinema”. Furthermore they made a stunning remix from the classic techno anthem “Vainqueur – Lyot” . This secret weapon is only in the hands of a few top DJ’s and the crowd always goes mad when they hear it. The duo is currently working on more dancefloor destroyers and also collaborating with other artists such as Nima Khak (Drumcode, H-Productions). Watch this space for more updates!
