Catch Ryan Crosson at NORAD this Friday
Ryan Crosson exemplifies techno at its finest, whether your measuring stick is based on the heyday of Detroit techno or on the genre's modern-day residency in Berlin. Crosson made a name for himself in both cities; after sharpening his needles alongside artists like Richie Hawtin and Kevin Saunderson, he helped found the seminal Visionquest label with colleagues Shaun Reeves, Seth Troxler and Lee Curtiss. And although he can be counted on to lay down some of the very latest techno floor-pounders in his sets, Crosson is also a master of selecting blasts from the past to stitch into his latest sound, whether it's a jazzy, brassy sample from a vintage record or a righteous techno track you haven't heard for twenty years. He'll play a special set at NORAD on Friday, March 28.
