Duckhunter is an electronic music producer from New York City who has profoundly began to influence the NYC Underground Techno scene, bringing together psychedelic and hypnotic grooves with over-the-edge sounds, brought together with his live musical skills; playing base, guitar, piano, and experimenting with sound as though it was a liquid substance for over 10 years.
A new phase of productions and performances began in late 2009, when Duckhunter officially signed with UberKontrol Techno label; which proved to become a home base electronic music label for his acclaimed releases from 2008 onward such as; "Ich bin eine Entejager" ("I am the Duck Hunter) with Alex Salganik (Uberkontrol), as well as "Lockdown JailHouse EP release of 2009" (on Beatport April 11th), "Gravity EP Release", also Tech House releases such as "TempoRed" and "Teleport" on Elastic Gun Records label in 2008 and 2009.
Duckhunter uses the power of electronic musical sound, to bring people to a religious and almost euphoric and sedative experience, sharing the energy of his bright-burning, orange and energetic so called "Duckhunt", which itself tells a story to the party people of a ever-changing adventure though time and space, venturing to a deserted island on the outskirts of nowhere... Duckhunter's music evolved to have a characteristic & classy Tech House and minimalistic essence, with clean-cut scientific and precise grooves & occasionally twisted psycho-acoustic vocals with a plastic or rubbery base precisely modified & engineered kick, with 3D transience as well as a spectral array of groovy and psychedelic sound frequencies.
Producing specifically electronic music for only 4 years, Duckhunter is becoming a new and revolutionary phenomenon in New York City. His active collaborations with artists such as Unsaved6, Alex Salganik (Uberkontrol), Craft, Onda Skillet (Aerotropic) etc., as well as label residency on Uberkontrol label and EA Gun Records for Tech House and Minimal Techno releases is greatly anticipated by dance music events in the Brooklyn Underground Loft Scene in NYC, as well as a whole summer of performances in and outside of the United States. Duckhunter is constantly sharpening his technical skills as an electronic music producer; creating his twisted but at the same time morphed and fashioned futuristic trend of pure and majestic electronic sound pleasing crowds as well as firing up and sometimes cooling down the energy on the dance floor.
ABOUT DUCKHUNTER'S DJ + THEREMIN PERFORMANCES
The theremin (/ˈθɛrəmɪn/), originally known as the ætherphone/etherphone, thereminophone or termenvox/thereminvox is an early electronic musical instrument controlled without discernible physical contact from the player. It is named after its Russian inventor, Professor Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928. The controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the position of the player's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other, so it can be played without being touched. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker.
The theremin is associated with a very eerie sound, which has led to its use in movie soundtracks such as Miklós Rózsa's for Spellbound and The Lost Weekend and Bernard Herrmann's for The Day the Earth Stood Still and as the theme tune for the ITV drama Midsomer Murders. Theremins are also used in concert music (especially avant-garde and 20th- and 21st-century new music) and in popular music genres such as rock. Psychedelic rock bands in particular, such as Hawkwind, have often used the theremin in their work
