International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

One of the first Canadian producers to set up shop in Berlin’s electronic epicentre, Kitchener-raised Mike Shannon has been a funky force to be reckoned with, both at home and abroad for over 15 years. His DJ career took off along the Detroit-Toronto axis, where he devised a signature that straddles quivering techno, hypnotic jazz and buttery deep house – a sweeping musical vision that remains integral to his sound. Shannon quickly added the qualifiers 'producer' and 'label owner' to his resumé upon moving to Montréal in the late nineties; he contributed to the homegrown minimal techno explosion by launching record label Cynosure and the more experimental Revolve Recordings (the latter with Jeff Milligan). As head A&R for the esteemed Cynosure, he’s helped boost the profile of like-minded artists such as Deadbeat, Akufen and Ernesto Ferreyra. He has released three albums to date on some of techno’s most notable imprints (Plus 8, Force Inc, ~scape), while continuing to blur tonal lines with his sultry, downtempo jazz trio Blue Fields (with Takeshi Nishimoto and Fadila) and an upcoming live act with German house pal DeWalta. After celebrating Cynosure’s 10th anniversary at MUTEK five years ago, Shannon returns with a new live set, to do what he does best: transcend techno clichés.
