Suspekt is 22yo Jesse Kuch, hailing from the tropical beaches and rainforests of Far North Queensland, Australia. Co-Owner of Australian progressive label Open Records- Jesse hopes to bring fresh life to the evolving sound of modern progressive music.
The Suspekt sound is deep & atmospheric, driven by tribal rhythms and bass-heavy undertones, with a lashing of tech-sensibility to boot. Hovering somewhere in the grey area between progressive trance, house and techno music, his trademark â€œVoodooâ€ groove is becoming well-known to daytime dancefloors.
The past few years have seen Jesse become a regular mainstage fixture at such festivals as Summer Solstice (Vic & FNQ), Winter Solstice (FNQ), Tribeadelic NYE (Vic), Phonoscope(Vic), Audiogasm (FNQ), Earth Freq Festival & SuperFreak Festival (NNSW).
With a smooth transition technique & the freshest of tunes from the Open Records stable- Suspekt is surely one of the names to watch on the Australian outdoor party and festival circuit.
His list of supports includes artists such as Antix/Fiord, Peter Digital, Vibrasphere, Solead, Beat Bizarre, DJ Banel, Lunaspice/D-Sens, Motion, Behind Blue Eyes, SunControlSpecies, Krumuler, Tegma, DJ Slater, Monolake, Phoney Orphants, Sensient, Shadow FX, Tetrameth, Shakta/Digitalis & Spoonbill, among many others.
Jesse also pursues a journalistic career within the trance/progressive industry, writing articles, reviews & interviews for magazines, websites, promotion/PR & newspapers, for publications including Trancerâ€™s Guide to the Galaxy, Revolve Magazine, Australiens.net, Aero-Groove.com, Green Ant, Tribal Vision Records, Digital Structures/MPQDX & Moonflower Records.
OPEN RECORDS AUSTRALIA
From the rainforests and wilderness of Far North Queensland Australia, comes a new label focusing on the deeper side of progressive music â€“ Open Records.
Inspired by the many parties and festivals in North Queensland and around Australia, the Open Records sound is deep, atmospheric, tribal progressive with a definite bass-heavy groove.
Hypnotic rhythms, spacious atmospheres and tribal percussions combine with elements of both digital and organic, classic and futuristic to forge a cutting edge, fresh sound in progressive music.
It is a sound that defies genre definition- fusing together elements of progressive trance, house and techno but at the same time, keepings its roots firmly planted in the outdoor trance party scene of Australia.
Featuring a mixture of both established and fresh artists/DJs from both Australia and Internationally, Open Records is supported by a strong network of like-minded people across the globe.
Collaborating artists include D-Sens (France), Antix (New Zealand), Sun Control Species (Australia), Brisker&Margitman (Israel), FOG (Greece), Embark (NZ/Aus) and Eegor (Australia). Additionally, Open Records will be represented by DJs Suspekt and Woodsman in Cairns (A&R/Label Management), Eegor in Sydney and Motive in Melbourne.
Mastering is completed at Slow Burning Studios, New Zealand by Barton Strom, Artwork and Graphics by Jason from Modulated Monkey and distribution is supplied by TwoHands. (http://www.twohandsdistribution.com/)
Open Records- a fresh sound in intelligent, cutting-edge daytime progressive.
