A true soldier of the British techno movement, James Ruskin – like many of his peers – was an acolyte of London’s legendary Lost parties, inspiring him to make his own formative forays into making and playing his own brand of heavy, no-frills techno.

His label Blueprint has become a by-word for forward-leaning, hard-edged sounds, and he’s renowned for his tight-as-you-like mixing skills, tieing together the freshest cuts and evergreen techno classics with effortless intensity.

Not content to rest on his laurels, he’s also behind the agenda-setting series of Blueprint parties, where Detroit deities are lined up alongside cutting edge talents that serve as roll calls of techno’s past, present and future.
