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.

Largely Ruskin's project since Polson formed Surface, which he now runs with Dunton.

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.

Dear Laking, Blueprint is one of the most succesfull labels in the Techno history! Monotone? Progressive? Not much drums? More synths? Some good artists? The rest not good? WTF!!! Oliver Ho isn't a good artist? Richard Polson (RIP) 65 DMavericks AREN'T A GOOD ARTISTS? Mark Broom isn't a good artist? Regis isn't a good artist? Paul Mac isn't a good artist? Sigha isn't a good artist? Dear Laking I think this is not your place and your kind music to make any comment or review, I saw more reviews from you in more places from Underground Techno, so please don't comment anymore here on Discogs becouse you don't have fucking idea about Underground Techno Music, take your bullshit for you own... Thank you.

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.
