Blueprint

Blueprint

Profile:
Blueprint was founded in 1996 by James Ruskin and Richard Polson who recorded the label's first release as Outline.

The first few releases came in quick succession and immediately had an impact on the techno scene, during an era when dancefloor techno was suffering a drought of fresh artists. A chance meeting led to the second release on the label being Oliver Ho's debut. Since then the artist roster has been largely centred around the work of those 3 artists, although Polson's later contributions have been as one half of The 65D Mavericks alongside his current production partner Nick Dunton. Surgeon has also made an appearance.

Ruskin also run's Blueprint's sublabel, Coda Records.

As far as UK labels go, B12 takes the lead where Intelligent, atmospheric techno is concerned, but for true UK techno, i.e stripped- down tracky biz, Blueprint remains, erm, the Blueprint. Sh*t hot.

This label represents a symbol. Symbol of huge quality in Underground Techno. Mysticism, hypnotism, dark atmosphere, the best ingredients are here to provide you a real trip inside electronic musics.

An excellent techno label from the UK where James Ruskin releases most of his stuff. Ruskin's records are always very powerful, dark and industrial, syncopated and very futurist. His latest LP, "Circuit", embodies perfectly what techno should be in the 21st century. An excellent label not to miss, where Oliver Ho also released some great EPs with a tribal edge. TIP!

Monotone, progressive techno. Bass optimized, not too much drums, more synthsounds. Some good artists make good records here, the rest is not so good.
