Objekt is TJ Hertz's adventures in machine music built to make subs rattle and feet wiggle; a convoluted mess of elektrology and teknology, 3-step, bass-core, post windmill, proto-minimal wankstep, gondola, shithouse, acid wonk, no more, no less.

What began as two unassuming whitelabels at the start of 2011 has led to a bewildering, pan-genre spaceship ride through international acclaim from artists as diverse as Aphex Twin, Surgeon, Francois K, 2562, Blawan and god knows how many more; remixes for Radiohead and SBTRKT; mixes and podcasts for all the usual suspects; a release ...read more

Objekt is TJ Hertz's adventures in machine music built to make subs rattle and feet wiggle; a convoluted mess of elektrology and teknology, 3-step, bass-core, post windmill, proto-minimal wankstep, gondola, shithouse, acid wonk, no more, no less.

What began as two unassuming whitelabels at the start of 2011 has led to a bewildering, pan-genre spaceship ride through international acclaim from artists as diverse as Aphex Twin, Surgeon, Francois K, 2562, Blawan and god knows how many more; remixes for Radiohead and SBTRKT; mixes and podcasts for all the usual suspects; a release on London's inimitable Hessle Audio imprint and dozens of performances all over the world. But while his releases – twisted and irreverent sure but, let's face it, ultimately still bass-fueled dancefloor bangers – have been busy bruising soundsystems and finding their way onto most end-of-year lists in electronic music, his DJ sets betray a much broader gamut of influences than his productions might suggest. From gurgling industrial weirdery through to both very classic and very experimental techno, racy 90s and 00s electro, IDM and more, his recorded mixes demonstrate this admirably, gliding seamlessly through artists as diverse as Jeff Mills, Alva Noto, DJ Stingray, Alex Cortex, DVS1, Emptyset and Alec Empire... all the while keeping a watchful eye on the dancefloor but unafraid to test the allegience of the dancers.

TJ Hertz was born in Toyko, raised in the UK and currently lives in Berlin, where he works as a DSP developer for Native Instruments. « hide
