Henze (aka Gecko), Oliver Ho, Deetron, Christian Smith, Ben Sims and more.
A Unique Techno Sound
Most recently Agent went back into the studio to intensely work on a live performance and new sound. This is what he says about his new show: “My new live set-up has truly let me express myself and my musical vision better than ever before. I dug deep into my massive record collection and pulled out all kinds of music from many different genres and time periods. Disco, Rock, Rap, Latin, Jazz etc., have been previously considered too obscure to mix into a typical “Techno” DJ performance. Using the "Ableton Live" technology, I extracted my favorite parts from this music and can now smoothly layer and alter them, as I please, live and in real time. This style of remixing my favorite new music and my own original new music, with these bits and pieces, creates a new dynamic and has given me a very personal sound. It adds an explosive and unpredictable energy to my performances and the dance floor!”
Agent Orange will be taking his show on tour in 2006 and setting up shop in Spain in the summer. Look out for new releases and remixes by Agent Orange on Ade Fenton’s Advanced, from the U.K., Gotham Grooves, Terminal M, Beretta Music, Futago Traxx. Agent will continue delivering his exciting, creative brand of music to many labels and clubs throughout the world.
