Arriving at MUTEK 2010 in partnership with Poland’s Unsound Festival, Jacek Sienkiewicz has been active on the East European techno scene since the turn of the century. Born in 1976, his interest in electronic music was spawned in the post-Communist thaw that brought warehouse parties to Eastern Europe in the nineties. Beginning as a DJ in 1995, it took five years before Sienkiewicz released his first twelve-inch, “Directions”, thereby introducing his dark, minimal techno defined by complex chords. The founder of Recognition Recordings, the Polish producer began to break through to the rest of the Europe with releases on veteran Berlin labels such as Trapez, Cocoon, and Klang Electronik. Currently one of Poland’s top electronic exports, Sienkiewicz has been bridging the Atlantic divide this year with notable appearances at Unsound New York in February and now MUTEK 2010.
