Silent Servant

Silent Servant may be the pseudonym of Californian techno artist Juan Mendez, and using a musical background stretching back again to the middle-’90s; Mendez is normally no stranger towards the techno picture. Originally making as Jasper and working the experimental techno label Cytrax, Mendez befriended Karl O’Connor (Regis) by the end from the nineties and created a long-lasting companionship which helped develop the Silent Servant audio. Like a founding person in the Sandwell Area label/music collective — along with O’Connor, Dave Sumner (Function), and Peter Sutton (Woman) — it wasn’t a long time before the 1st Silent Servant materials surfaced. 2006’s The Silent Morning hours mined the experimental audio that he’d created as Jasper, while also sketching on Karl O’Connor’s industrial-influenced design of techno that his label Downwards experienced become known for. 2008 noticed the discharge of two even more 12” singles, Violencia as well as the Bloodstream of Our Ruler, both on Sandwell Region. Splitting his time taken between the Sandwell Region project while assisting his wife, Camella Lobo’s very own clothing Tropic of Cancers, Mendez’s Silent Servant result slowly gathered speed. A small number of produces between 2009 and 2011 — especially Negative Fascination, Un Mar, and Hypnotherapy in the present day Age — noticed the Silent Servant audio evolve. Using the Sandwell label taken to a close by the end of 2011, Mendez centered on documenting what would become his debut record, and an opportunity ending up in Dominic Fernow (Vatican Darkness, Prurient, Cool Cave) noticed Mendez signal the unfinished record to Fernow’s Medical center Productions label. Released in 2012, Detrimental Fascination, brought jointly most of Mendez’s affects; his early techno productions as Jasper, the shoegaze and post-punk appear of Tropic of Cancers, as well as the industrial-techno of Sandwell Region and Downwards.
