Cheap and Deep (US)

PREMIÈRE CANADIENNE  

Cru, moite, dubby et mystérieux sont des qualificatifs qui sont fréquemment attribués aux productions de Jay Patrick Ahern. Cheap and Deep est le plus récent d’une longue lignée d’alias utilisés par Ahern qui, depuis vingt ans, s’est taillé une enviable mais très discrète réputation d’artiste radicalement en avance sur son temps. Les productions d’Ahern sous différents pseudonymes (Aquarhythms, Add Noise, Hydronaut, Hydroelectric et d’autres encore) remontent à 1992. Ces derniers temps, Ahern a également collaboré avec Stefan Schneider (Schneider TM, To Rococo Rot) sous le nom de Hauntologists, mais c’est sous l’alias Cheap and Deep qu’il a entrepris d’explorer la Techno avant-gardiste sur des pièces qui se comparent avantageusement au travail de Redshape ou de Traversable Wormhole d’Adam X.

CANADIAN PREMIERE  

Raw, humid, dubby, mysterious – when Cheap and Deep’s Jay Patrick Ahern goes to work on tracks, those are usually the characteristics that are going to define the end results. Born in 2009, Cheap and Deep is only the latest in a long line of aliases for Ahern, who has spent nearly two decades floating under the surface as a quintessential producer’s producer and known by crate diggers to be one of those artists who is tragically ahead of his time. With a catalogue dating back to 1992, Ahern has recorded previously as Astralwerks artist Aquarhythms, as well as Add Noise, Hydronaut, Hydroelectric and others. These days, apart from his current endeavours as Cheap and Deep, Ahern has been working alongside Stefan Schneider (Schneider TM, To Rococo Rot) as Hauntologists. But it is his Cheap and Deep alias that sees the veteran producer working on the cutting edges of techno once again, making tracks that draw comparison to the likes of Redshape and Adam X’s Traversable Wormhole.
