Anthony Jimenez got his start as a DJ back in 2003, gaining experience playing records spanning several genres before finding his niche in techno. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, the DJ and producer was drawn to the dark and cavernous sound of techno when he moved to Detroit, going on to become a mainstay at Blank Code’s Scene parties.
Time Under Tension, his 2014 debut EP released on Blank Code, made waves in the international techno scene, receiving support and plays by the likes of Annie Hall, Brendon Moeller, Exium, DJ Hyperactive, Krenzlin, Pfirter and Rebekkah.
A tastemaker in his own right, Anthonys own productions are a mirror representation of the hard word and tenacity he adopts in every studio session and DJ set. Driven by the raw and primal nature of techno, his DJ arrangements and original productions are characterized by broody and deep musical explorations peppered with hypnotic and rhythmic sonic experiences. His signature sound has made him a local favorite in a city that not only gave birth to techno, but continues to push the envelope for the genre’s future progress with a selection of top-tier talent in both the producer and DJ categories.
His skills have not gone unnoticed, landing Jimenez coveted spots alongside some of technos greatest names in the international touring circuit including Monoloc, Silent Servant, Dasha Rush, Regis. Perc, Adam X, Headless Horseman and Dustin Zahn just to name a few. In 2015 came what some describe as the coronation gig for any techno DJ in Detroit – a booking at Movement Electronic Music Festival among the world’s techno elite.
2016 will see Anthony release a new EP with Blank Code, as he continues to push the envelope as a producer and DJ in both the Detroit and United States’ techno scene.
