The brainchild of producer, DJ, and Plug Analysis label owner Allen Avanessian, the loose project Headset went from dreams to reality when Avanessian was contacted by ~scape label head Stefan Betke. Betke’s obtain a monitor to get a compilation prompted Avanessian to contact Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel, Figurine, as well as the Postal Program. Avanessian organized his notion of rounding up manufacturers and MCs very much the same 4AD label owner Ivo Watts-Russell got rounded up music artists because of this Mortal Coil. Like Watts-Russell’s task, the users of Headset would talk about an aesthetic. Feasible collaborators needed to be future-minded and accept consumer electronics. John Tejada, Daedelus, Thomas Fehlmann, Coffee beans, and Darkness Huntaz suit you perfectly and were quickly involved. Merging cutting-edge electronica with envelope-pushing hip-hop, Headset produced its debut in 2001, using the monitor “Dustmite” showing up on ~scape’s Staedtizism 2 compilation. 3 years later on the full-length Spacesettings made an appearance on Plug Study in THE UNITED STATES and ~scape in European countries.
