The first of this week’s label boss podcasts sees Subspec Music‘s JGarrett drop a 21–track techno firestorm, featuring no less than 9 of his own productions.
Currently residing in Vancouver, Josh Garrett was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and was sucked into in the Detroit techno scene during the pivotal years of the 1990s, as the second wave of Detroit labels and artists reached critical mass. Since 1995, Josh has released a spectrum of electronic music genres across a variety of labels. His music is strongly rooted in the influences of his days in the Detroit scene, and he specialises in pure techno and heavy grooving tech house, laced with acid and dub influences.
In 2012 Josh launched Subspec Music with partner Rob Galbraith. Since launching, the label has received support from the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Brendon Moeller, Drumcell, Bryan Zentz, and Slam. Subspec releases have been charted and/or played by many DJs including Richie Hawtin, DJ M–TRAXXX, The Automatic Message and others.
