He grew up in Detroit, made cuts in Berlin: DJ and producer Seth Troxler has a truly global sound. Now the prolific DJ is headed down under for Future Music performing at club dates across the country in November.
Long endeared to music lovers for being a connoisseur of dance culture, Troxler’s constant touring schedule and playful approach has seen the UK-based producer land plenty of accolades. In 2012 he was voted #1 spot on Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs poll – he’s actually been in their top five for five years running. That same year Rolling Stone magazine voted him #13 in their ‘25 DJs That Rule The Earth’, Troxler last in the country two years ago for huge sets at Future Music Festival.
Whether penning hilarious editorials for Thump or sharing a recent two-hour, back-to-back set at Germany’s Melt! Festival alongside Tiga, Seth Troxler is truly one of a kind. He’s graced festival stages aplenty – think Creamfields (UK), Sonus (Ukraine), Detroit Electronic Music Festival (USA), Sonar (Barcelona), Glastonbury (UK), Coachella (USA) – and regular spots at iconic clubs like Fabric (London) and Circo Loco (Ibiza). One thing is for certain: Seth Troxler is notoriously funny and knows how to party!
Troxler spent his teenage years in the Detroit underground, playing his first show at 15 and scoring himself a job at a local record store as a techno buyer. It was here he first met Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves – years later, the collective forming Visionquest, releasing names like Benoit & Sergio, Footprintz and more.
Troxler has stepped it up again, recently unveiling on brand new projects – including recently announced imprint, Soft Touch Records, who just unveiled its debut release, from Clarian. Alongside the Martinez Brothers, Troxler has also established the imprint Tuskegee Music, a new vinyl-only label inspired by the trio’s love of the ‘90s Paradise Garage influence. And then there’s yet another new label – Play It Say It, its moniker “based on the stickers that used to appear on records during the ‘80s and ‘90s”. The new label launched with a one-track single from Deep Dish’s Sharam, who reformed after an eight-year hiatus. Troxler’s a man of many talents – last year he opened restaurant Smokey Tails in Hackney, the DJ a three-time cooking champion at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).
