Wolfkop Weekender .. Full line-up announced. You’ve heard about it… so what are you waiting for? My brother in music Ryan Sullivan and I are playing on Saturday night. Feel super blessed to be included for the third time. I’m never really this excited for anything this far in advance…

Catch myself alongside homeslice Ryan Sullivan on Saturday night.

“Don’t be fooled by their infectious attitudes and their genuinely likeable demeanours; here are two of the most reliable reprobates in techno. Each man stands on his own as an unwavering tastemaker. Together they form a duo that simply do as techno does – there’s not a spotlight grabbing bone in their bodies and yet between them they run perhaps SA’s most established techno label TripleFire Music, and father to the dub techno mixtape series Thrum Room that has set precedent for those who take the genre to heart in both in SA and abroad. A frankly rare opportunity to see them in the thick of things, you couldn’t ask for more from a penultimate set on a Saturday night.”

Triplefire Music resident Helmut J and founder Ryan Sullivan come together to display their love for dub techno on The Black Series. The two artists regularly showcase this sound when they dj back to back and Helmut J’s personally curated Thrum Room podcast series is a highly respected brand, upholding the genre in Southern Africa.

Distant Communication is a studio project taken on without meeting in person but rather developing ideas separately via the internet. It’s a strange approach for two artists and close friends living in the same city which is the point according to Ryan Sullivan who says “we wanted to see what we could come up with while collaborating but working apart. It allowed us to experiment and play with sounds we otherwise may not have due to the fact that in person we would have influenced each others decisions in a different way. This allowed us to basically remix each others ideas throughout the entire project and we’re real excited about the outcome.”

DCOM comes in two parts along with an additional remix from Helmut J.

“This is the third in the experimental series of releases which explore the dark and unusual side of the African imprint’s artists.

The Black Series Three sees Helmut J, one of Cape Town’s most active techno artists, displaying a piece of his early work. Helmut J originally produced Geist over five years back and when rediscovered on a dusty old hard-drive, had to be brought to life on Triplefire Music’s Black Series.”

“After teasing our ears with his dj sets and studio productions for a number of years, Helmut J signs his first two records with Triplefire Music. First up is Flexion. We’ve had our eyes and ears on this forward thinking, South African artist for a very long time now and are proud to be able to present his music to the world. Flexion begins with an intruiging and dreamy pad. The rhythm slowly builds as large stabbing synth sounds maintain one’s focus. Once in full swing, a short break-down with containing some spoken voice leads into an early peak. Once back in the groove, the lead melody begins in body of the track , pulsating in a modern techno fashion before opening up into it’s trance inducing melody before the song gently works it’s way to an end.”

“It’s with great pleasure we present to you a showcase of one of Cape Town and indeed South Africa’s hardest working independent techno and deep house record labels. For the last five years Triplefire has been releasing a steady stream of local and international artists with a determined quality control – there is no fluff to speak of – garnering the institution respect from all four corners of the dance music universe. Founder Ryan Sullivan joins us for the first time, and the man behind the dub-techno technikon that is Thrum Room, Helmut J, returns to the same slot he played in January; opening things up with a bass-heavy breakfast on Sunday at 10am. ”

Catch myself alongside homeslice Ryan Sullivan on Sunday morning.
