|Real Name:||William Selman|
Warmdesk is the project of Chicago-based producer William Selman. Named after an obscure single by an early 90s group out of Cologne that inspired him initially, the sound of Warmdesk has evolved from his earliest work of musique concrete and skewed rhythms into combining these elements into stripped-down minimal techno. Still present are the dubby textures and samples from everyday life, but now they coexist with smooth chords and rhythmic grooves. Selman has released material on many labels, including A Touch of Class, Deluxe, Bip-Hop, Static Caravan and Fallt. His first album was the "Guero Variations" cd for the well-regarded Deluxe label (home to Electric Birds, Blechtum from Blechdom and Matmos's early endeavors). The record brought together the musique concrete and techno as it is composed almost completely with sounds from the interior of the piano without actually playing the keys; according to the Portland Mercury's Dave Segal, it "makes musique concrete detritus shimmy and shake with glee." The album made it into several critics' top lists for records of 2003.
