Seth Troxler knows how to keep busy. The London by way of Berlin, by way of Detroit based DJ/producer has been all over the radar of house music for the last few years. In between winning Resident Advisors Top 100 DJs last year, playing gigs across the globe, putting out some releases and remixes, he’s always on the grind somewhere in the world.

Seth Troxler grew up in in the Detroit suburbs and had a very early exposure to house music. He started DJing in his teens at techno hot-spots around Detroit like the now legenday Works, while also working at  local record store Memories and Melodies along side some of Detroit’s house legends. A move to Berlin in the mid-2000s with fellow DJ Ryan Crosson would help to launch Troxler’s career onto a global scale.

Mr. Troxler has played some of the best and brightest spots for house and techno around the globe including MUTEK, fabric, DEMF, and a host of now famous clubs in Berlin and across Europe. He has also released DJ mixes for Resident Advisor and BPitch Controls Boogeybytes series, as well as been a guest on BBC’s Radio 1. He also helped to form DJ super group Visionquest with Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves, and Lee Curtiss.

Outside of his Illustrious and ever growing DJ career, Seth Troxler has also dipped his hands into some solid production over the last half a decade or so, having release tracks on Wolf & Lamb, Spectral Sounds, and Wagon Repair. He has also collaborated with artists like Subb-an, Shaun Reeves, Patrick Russell, and Art Department for some original productions and remixes.

2013 looks like another whirlwind year of touring for Seth Troxler, with gigs spanning all across the globe. With some luck, we will get to catch him in Detroit at Movement and the now infamous after party, “Need I Say More”.
