Ophidian is truly a master. His productions are top: interesting, addictive, intelligent hardcore as well as lots of experimental music. But he doesn't limit himself to only one area of electronic music which can clearly be seen on his current releases. By producing quality hardtechno on the protocast label he'll be a recognized name in the techno scene very soon for sure.

If you like hard stuff, do yourself a favour and give it a listen - you won't regret it.

Conrad Hoyer is in no uncertain terms a genius. He can make thunderous distorted techno to melodic party gabber to thoughtful beatless pieces without anything sounding lazy or contrived. He can throw in a uplifting piano section (a piano for crying out loud!) into a track like 'Butterfly' or Angel without it coming across as cheesy. He can combine subtlety with stonking great kick drums which pick you up by the lapels and throw you around the room

But despite all the musicality and high concepts of his release, there none of the po-faced chin-stroking pretentiousness that infect most techno producers. I saw him DJ at a club in Scotland where he finished a set of Enzyme/Gangsta/Supreme Intelligence/Ruffneck tracks by playing 'Jiieehaa' by Diss Reaction, at which point he jumped off the decks and came to have a dance with the punters.

Everyone with the most passing interest in hardcore or gabber should feel grateful and humble for the music Ophidian makes.
